Luka Duka Red Room
This work is inspired by Dewantoro’s wife, Kerensa Johnston Dewantoro, who performed a show called The Red Room. The story goes for all the red works, that prior to getting married she travelled to Europe for a year where she began writting the Red Room. Immediately after their wedding in 2001, she returned to Australia for three months and created the Red Room. Upon her return to Bali, to meet her husband and present new works, their very small space was covered in large red paintings. One of them is this.
