Artist in Residence
Shades of Bali II - An exhibition by Davina Stephens
11- 25 July 2014
Alila Villas Soori will present the latest in its Artist in Residence series, hosting an exhibition by New Zealand-born artist Davina Stephens.
Davina’s works reflect her exposure to and appreciation of many different world cultures nurtured during her years growing up in Bali, Australia and India. Her years spent in Bali have imbued her with a good visual understanding of the Balinese culture and people through observing common rituals and symbols of daily life, which strongly influence her work in printmaking.
Davina’s exhibition ‘Shades of Bali II’ contribute to the technique and talent of the Balinese artist and combines her experience, technique and knowledge of Bali with the inspiration of local elements and design, culminating visual stories that allow one to experience the Balinese people, traditions, art and way of life in a sensitive, and portable form.
During Artist in Residence programme, Davina will be offering workshops at USD 100++ per person and demonstrating the diverse way in which we have the ability to turn our observations into printable stories.
