Last September, Bali marked the sad anniversary of the loss of Brent Hesselyn, one of the founding fathers of Jenggala Keramik, - a man possessing a tremendous range of natural gifts and a zest for living life to its fullest. A native New Zealander, Brent made his home in Bali, built Jenggala into a world-wide name for qulaity ceramics, and still found time to work tirelessly for the promotion of the island's culture and art.
An Exhibition of Brent Hesselyn's Photographs
The ceramics created by Jenggala Keramik under Brent's tutelage represent a lasting tribute to the man's refinement and taste. However, Brent's dedication to the arts was also reflected in many other creative pursuits. Previous to co-founding Jenggala, Brent created a library of photographs which are a unique representation of Bali in the 1970's. These images reflect his amazing enthusiasm, curiosity and appreciation for the then almost undisturbed ancient Balinese culture. His photographs pay great attention to detail. And, like the Man himself, have a special warmth, empathy and humor, as well as a unique photographer's talent for clarity and poignancy.
Jenggala Keramik Bali will be holding an exhibition of these photographs starting on Friday December 19, 2003, and running until February 13, 2004.
