Taking its inspiration from the title of the Weather Girls disco hit of 1979, the exhibition "It's Raining Men" in Bali by three artists - Pranoto, Kerry Pendergrast and Masaya Kurobe will be held at the Bali Mystique Hotel.
Reviving a renaissance period artistic preoccupation with the nude male form, these three artists are dedicating an entire exhibition exclusively to art depicting men déshabillés
Ubud-based artist Pranoto and his wife Kerry Pendergrast have pioneered “Life Drawing” classes for years at their [Pranoto Art Gallery
.] The weekly sessions feature models, male and female, from around the world.
The current exhibition at the Bali Mystique Hotel
, however, focuses only on drawings of men taken from those sessions. Pranoto and Kerry's work is joined by the renditions of Japanese artists Masaya Kurobe who is a frequent visitor to Bali and an artists participating in the weekly drawing sessions in Ubud.
Pranoto demonstrated his masterly charcoal and acrylic figurative work in a two-part exhibition/artist in residence last year at Gallery East
and Midland Junction Art Centre
in Perth, Western Australia.
Kerry Pendergrast has also held major exhibitions in Perth, Jakarta, Bali, and was an artist in residence last year in Phuket, Thailand. She specializes in pastel landscapes, but in the current exhibition she shows her line drawings, pastels and paintings of the masculine form.
