Metis Gallery & Boutique in Seminyak, Bali is opening their latest exhibition Silent Dialogues on Thursday, 18 April 2019. Silent Dialogues showcases portraits of Indonesian people created by Nadya Lesnaya. Nadya’s works are built upon the transition from impression to expression. She tends to leave a sense of slight incompleteness in the work so the viewers can bring their thoughts and perception to complete the paintings. Silent Dialogues runs until 16 May 2019 at Metis Gallery. For more information, visit metisbali.com or follow the gallery’s Instagram account here.
