Description:
Ni Cempaka, named after the fragrant cempaka (champak) flower, is Blanco’s daughterby his Balinese wife. The dynamic movements of Balinese dance are shown withquick, spontaneous brush strokes in the figure and background. The illusion of motion also is repeated as her hair flies through the air, the blurred hands, and the lower part of her body not visible.
