Prints, Pots and Paintings at Ubudís Mood Studio

Exhibition or Rare Maps and Prints, Shipwreck Ceramics and Rare Balinese Paintings at Newly-Opened Mood Studio in Ubud.


Recently opening its doors to the public, Mood Studio in Kedewatan Ubud is commencing operations with a triple-billing of rare prints, shipwreck ceramics and rare Balinese paintings.

Shipwreck Ceramics

Rare Chinese export ceramics were produced in China and shipped to and through Southeast Asia for the millennium between the 9th and 19th centuries. Ships laden with priceless plate, pots and table vessels often floundered on their journeys, waiting for discovery by ship's salvagers hundreds of years later.

A selection of rare and valuable shipwreck ceramic artifacts have now "resurfaced" in time to be included in the current exhibition at Mood Studio.

The Way They Viewed Us
The first printed plates depicting the journeys and discoveries of Western explorers and adventurers in the Indonesian archipelago were published in Amsterdam in 1596. The current exhibition in Ubud presents outstanding examples of the early engraved lithographs and maps, many appearing for the first time in Indonesia.

Paintings by Maurice Sterne

An American born in 1877, Maurice Sterne won a National Academy traveling scholarship in 1904 that sent him on an artistic journey including Paris, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Burma and Bali. Influenced by Cezanne, Monet, and the Renaissance Painters - the American paused and painted in Bali between 1912 to 1914. On the Island, he painted in colors and lines reminiscent of Gaugin Ė a style he described as "quick and spontaneous Ė what happened."
Sterne's colorful impressions of Balinese culture and life during the second decade of the 1900s Ė when he was arguably one of the first expatriate artists working on Bali - form a part of the current exhibition at Mood Studio.

Mood Studio

Commenting on the current exhibition in Ubud, gallery consultant Roy Thompson explains, "each of these exhibitions is a first time event on Bali. The shipwreck exhibition is being held in conjunction with the Department of Archaeology, and virtually no museums or galleries on Bali have any of Sterne's Bali period works."

Mood Studio is located near the intersection of Jalan Raya Lungsiakan and Jalan Raya Kedewatan in Kedewatan-Ubud, eight minutes from the center of town. Open seven days a week, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. the Gallery can be telephoned at ++62-(0)361-7825508, ++62-(0)361-974445 or mobile, ++62(0)816579787.

The current exhibition runs through October 3, 2005.
