About the artwork
In this evocative piece by Tjokorda, three bulls are depicted galloping towards the viewer. The curved lines used by the artist to define the animals’ forms conveys a sense of movement, and the speed at which these majestic animals are travelling at. Pastels are applied to the brilliant gold background of the work, creating a contrast that provides viewers with a fascinating visual experience and furthers the spirited nature of the work. Through his skillful use of artistic techniques, Tjokorda proves himself a virtuoso of depicting the nuances of ephemeral motion, emotional expression and expositions of energy.
