Window to Nature by Kerry Pendergrast

Scenes of Bali, Western Australia and Java at Solo Exhibition by Bali-based Artist.


From the varied landscapes of Western Australia where she was born, to the rich colours of Bali that she now calls home, artist Kerry Pendergrast offers a celebration of the beautiful environments that are closest to her heart.

Prefering to paint and draw outside, Kerry’s paintings capture the changes of light and mood. "When you spend hours in the scene, you carry the essence and spirit of the image in detail with you always," says the Artist.

Her use of soft pastel on sand paper enhances the colors of the pastel and allows each stroke to been seen in rich detail. For the first time at her current exhibition, Pendergrast is also showing oil paintings on canvas, a new medium for her, employing textures found only by using brush and palette knife.

An Eye for Bali and Western Australian

Much of the work featured in the current exhibition is from Bali, Kerry’s home for fifteen years and an endless source of her artistic inspiration: the rice fields in all their seasons; the spectacular mountains of Bedugul with their pristine lakes; the temples set like jewels in the landscape; and the tropical beaches of Amed, Sanur and Padang Bai.

Also included in the current exhibition are a number of works done in Western Australia, Pendergrast's birthplace, capturing the spring flowers of the Southwest, the crystal clear beaches of Esperance, and the forests and farms of Pemberton. The exhibition also includes additional works from Java and views done around the grounds of Alila Ubud – the venue for the current exhibition.

About the Artist

Kerry Pendergrast was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1963. After pursuing a career in theatre and music, a trip to Bali set her on a new course when she met her future Indonesian husband Pranoto, an artist. She moved to Ubud, Bali in 1993 and has two children.

In Ubud Pendergrast began developing as an artist, attending and organising model sessions at Pranato's Art Gallery which she established with her husband, Pranato, in 1996. Since her first solo exhibition a decade ago, she has held many exhibitions in Indonesia and Australia.
