comment from BIDADARI :

Restlessness and constant inquiries about Balinese arts have been the major force behind Pande Ketut Taman's creative journey. He is very curious about how have the Balinese artists and maestros like Lempad, Cokot, Deblog or earlier masters been able to build temples and create masterpieces that we now see and inherit.

His restlessness is not only physical but also psychological, which is ever more intense, especially during moments of materializing his works.

The restlessness builds up all kinds of questions in his head. "What mind sets have those Balinese had to enable them to create such famous works? What creative processes have they walked through? How come they able to accomplish such feat? Why do today's generations very rarely or hardly able to match their accomplishments?

Nature's phenomena have been very influential in stirring Taman's restlessness. Indeed, much of people's creative processes stem out from nature-by watching every little detail of daily occurrences that we see but often neglect, such as that of the fallen leaves or the scattered about wastes.

It is from all of these Taman learns about life, and discovers his creative expression along the way.
