Jewelled Batik & Fabric Collage Exhibition
The Gallery Boutique of Maya Ubud Resort & Spa during the month of September will feature a unique collection of jeweled batik tapestries designed by Annemarie Kipar along with a collection of fabric collage by Helga Fiedler.
German-born Annemarie Kipar decorates her beautiful batik selection with beads, sequins and stones piece by piece, creating beautiful glittering tapestries. Annemarie found Indonesian batiks to be magical in their intricate design with motifs ranging from imaginative to naïf; mystical to primitive. Each piece of art takes three to four months to complete. Over the years Annemarie’s tapestries have become collector’s items throughout the world and adorn the homes of celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor.
Inspired by Annemarie’s unique collection, her long time friend Helga A. Fiedler, whose hobbies included painting, doll making, patchwork & quilting, began creating her own wonderful pieces of collage from the extensive array of fabrics and beads collected over her many years in Bali. These intriguing pieces of artwork will also be displayed during this exhibition.
