With vigor and tenacity, Han immersed herself in the rich natural landscapes of the mystical island of Bali. Han's new body of works captures the essence of Balinese topography which reflected her visits to Mount Batur and Mount Agung, the pristine beaches of Amed, Ketewel and Bias Tugel, the crashing waves of Water Blow Nusa Dua, and the rice terraces of Jatiluwih.
The opening reception will take place on 4 August. Register here. Please contact the Private Museum if you need an enquiry.
