I Made Bakti Wiyasa

The duality of girl and boy

Watercolour on paper 16 cm x 28 cm


Concept: the presence of the meaning of fertility in this life of two people who are drawn to each other like embers and fire, always connected, as if night cannot be separated from day, girls cannot be separated from boys, darkness comes from the presence of light. This duality draws me to experience the realities of this unique and beautiful life.
