The figures of Putu Sutawijaya are always floating with graceful fluidity of movement with this lightness in flight taking the viewer away on a soothing, lyrical journey. This has much to do with the artist's desire to momentarily elevate the viewer's sensibilities onto a more tranquil and serene plane, away from the harsher realities of disorder and complexities in life, adding some colour to life. The work takes on a meditative pause to allow the self to contemplate on more uplifting sentiments. The figures are drawn with strong lines with no particular focus on gender or race, but rather extending this generality more to emphasise the individual's personal growth.
Kembang putih (White flower) may also be the reminder to the viewer to allow for distractions so that the simple and beautiful things in life can be appreciated. The movement in the work is reminiscent of the artist's own experience with traditional Balinese dance in his younger years. Flowers are often scattered as a welcoming gesture before the dance. The white flower in this work may be taken to be that of the frangipani flower which is a common flower found in Bali, where the artist is from. This work is symbolic of the artist's return to his roots, which he has grown to better appreciate, and hence exploring the traditional themes that abound in his culture.
