Balinese Nymphs and Studly Lads to Dance Above Your Head

Maya Ubud Resort & Spa Commissions Artist Kerry Penderegrast to Create a Delightfully Different Ceiling at Their Spa's Reception.


(12/23/2006)



Michelangelo move over.

Kerry Pendergrast was recently employed to spend a month physically inverted, creating an unique piece of ceiling art to decorate the reception-area ceiling at the Maya Ubud Resorts' famous Spa at Maya.

A well-known Australian artists who makes her home in Ubud, Kerry's line drawing which decorate many of the treatment pavilions at the Spa at Maya have proven so popular with clients that the Resort didn't need to look far for an artist able to create a memorable entrance to their riverside facility. In keeping with her previous drawings and the general themes of "spa" and "wellness," Kerry has lavishly adorned the ceiling with line drawings of the human form. Inspired by no less than fifty-five Balinese models who posed for the project, Kerry has created a strikingly beautiful collection of semi-nude male and female figures using brush and ink on the Spa Reception's ceiling area.

The first time Kerry has painted a ceiling, she chose to evoke a Grecian decorative effect by painting figures around the border, surrounding a central panel of ten figures. She includes decoration from Indonesian textiles. The result is a unique creative collaboration between the hotel and the artist. The work has taken just over a month to complete.

"The challenge with line drawing," observed Kerry, "is to reduce the art form to its most fundamental aspect. To capture the human figure in this way requires a fine quality of line, a steady hand and assuredness in the artist. It takes many years of practice to perfect this style, even though the drawings may be completed in 5 or 10 minutes. It is a long tradition in art; the most famous line drawings are by Matisse and Picasso."

As you might imagine, business is looking up at the Spa at Maya.

Shown on balidiscovery.com are photographs of artists Kerry Penderegrast creating her ceiling masterpiece in Ubud.
