Exhibition : Walking on the Cloud
by Wanlop Han-San-Thia
on May 1 - 30, 2010
at The Rotunda Gallery, Bangkok

The thriving view of art in "Walking on the Cloud" Art Exhibition.

Wanlop Han-Sen-Thia, Lanna artist, is proud to present his two-dimensional semi-abstract paintings. This is his first solo exhibition and it features exceptional art pieces. They express the beauty inspired by his daily surroundings and also his travel experiences which have brought him peace and happiness. Wanlop is renowned for these inspiring and positive artworks. Wanlop expertly uses an acrylic colour-dotting on canvas technique to create the 2-dimensional paintings, which illustrate his feeling and attitude towards nature, such as forest, flowers, mountains and impressive architecture. Putting the small coloured dots together creates a soft and beautiful movement of colours and a positive feeling of peace and serene happiness which this good-natured artist hopes to share with interested members of the public.

All About Her by Bussaraporn Thongchai

''All About Her'' By Bussaraporn Thongchai

From May 25th to June 30th, 2010

At ARDEL?s Third Place Gallery (Sukhumvit 55, Thonglor soi 10)

''The connection between femininity and I is the surrender to the so-call social norms and at the same time the ability to be disobedient to it''

When personal and public affairs have become completely different issues, art is the only thing that helps shorten the distance and keep them close together.

The first solo exhibition by a young promising talent Bussarapong Thongchai, ''All About Her'' is the center of every story that brought to the artist the consolation for life throughout the whole process of aesthetic creation, thinking and re-thinking. While art and life decide to walk together, femininity has become an additional part that helps create the difference and adds more contents to her life in which can be seen from her artworks. Therefore, there are various feelings and emotions even the completely opposite side for example, tenderness and strength, covering and uncovering or even surrender and protest.

ARDEL's Third Place Gallery requests for your support to kindly promote the upcoming exhibition.

Abstracted Nature by Mr. Kaz Orii

Abstracted Nature
by Mr. Kaz Orii
Term Friday 21st of May to Saturday 12th of June 2010
Opening 18:30 Friday 21st of May 2010

Presided over by
Mr. Katsumi Kakazu
Director of the Japan Foundation, Bangkok and Southeast Asian Bureau Director General of the Japan Foundation

     Many shun contemporary art because they find it difficult to understand. However, in terms of both colour and shape, Kaz Orii’s paintings are somehow warm and thereby easier to become intimate with. Perhaps this is because Orii’s artwork is based upon his interactions with nature through farm work that he does co-currently with his art. Orii’s experience of nature while
handling the earth has led to a wonder that comes from life growing out of a seed and the variance dependant upon temperatures and humidity and Japan’s four seasons. This careful observation of nature including his awe, sense of being moved, and joy, has unexpectedly nurtured the style with which he faces the canvas. His recent interest is the incredible energy apparent in specific moments – like the calm before a storm, or in a rainbow after the rain. These expressions of nature are fascinating because they closely correlate with human emotions.

     Orii was found by Akko Art Gallery’s Tokyo representative and curator Yukio Ogushi who chose him to be in Bridge 2007, the second biennale Japanese Contemporary group exhibition held at Akko Art Gallery Bangkok, Thailand. The high standard used in choosing the artists by curator, Yukio Ogushi and artist-curator Kato Shojiro led to admiration among both art critics and the

      Akko Art Gallery therefore arranged to present Kaz Orii for his first solo exhibition in Asia outside of Japan. Images Breakdown in 2008. This was very well received and led to additional numerous solo exhibitions within a year in Singapore, Poland and Portugal. Abstracted Nature is Orii’s second solo exhibition at Akko Art Gallery in 2010. Please do find colours and shapes that you like within his paintings and spend some time with a special piece and see what the painting will say to you.

Kill Yr Idols by Andrew Jones
May 8 - 30, 2010 @ Nospace Gallery
Opening Night: Saturday 8 May 2010, 7-10pm

An art exhibition about idolatry, identification, and fake blood.
In Kill Yr Idols the lyrics of a Sonic Youth song are used both for irony and commentary on a wide range of subjects including heroes both local and international and the people that ultimately identify with in order to comprise ourselves.

Andrew Jones is a former music writer and promoter. He was one of the founders of Push a night for progressive and experimental electronica and hip-hop in Orlando, Florida. He has also written for publications such as Xlr8r, Skyscraper, The Orlando Weekly, Sleazenation, The Wire, and others. Additionally, Andrew also started the LNF Pool a monthly night for free improviser that tied local disco djs to free jazz bassists and he wrote software in Supercollider to improvise with them. Mr. Jones has also done a few little art pieces over the years including a small piece called 7 Incomplete Improvisations for Free Manifesta and wrote some copy for by Miltos Manetas. Working as a critic he became more aware of the various vocabularies the arts use for expression and his work as music critic became a sharpened analytical tool that frequently revealed the nostalgiac underpinnings of late nineties pop music and electronica. Since then he's worked on several electronic projects including an album with Tom Smith and has devised a few conceptual pieces here there and the occasional short story.

Between Spaces and Look – Overlook by Jackkrit Anantakul, Chawnchom Boonmegurdsup and Jedsada Tangstrakulwong

Between Spaces and Look – Overlook
At The Art Center, Center of Academic Resources, Chulalongkorn University
April 9 – May 15, 2010
Opening reception: Friday April 23, 2010, 6-8pm
“Through the eyes of others, we see the world differently.”

In the face of globalisation where the world has become smaller and smaller, the void inside each human's heart has actually expanded. In our daily life, we all keep building up a wall to create a personal space and simply live within the small world we have created.

This time around, The Art Center would like to introduce two exhibitions by two young artists that challenge the viewers about their notion of space. These exhibitions are two small worlds, presented through different perspectives, yet originating from the same society the artists and curators live in. Their intention is to allow the viewers to get to know the worlds other than their own and start to see their own world differently. Maybe, we'll then realise that what we're looking for in our own world, all the answers we're trying to get, can actually be found in other people's worlds, if we care to look at them

Between Spaces
Artists: Jackkrit Anantakul and Chawnchom Boonmegurdsup

Curator: Narongsak Nilkhet

Everybody craves for a private space. But in today's living conditions, especially with all the modern technologies that give us convenience that we're so attached to, it's impossible to disconnect ourselves from a public space. The notion of the two spaces has become ambiguous and no one can really distinguish one from the other. Vising Between Spaces will be a challenge for people who try to define private and public spaces.

Look – Overlook
An art project to heighten awareness
Artist: Jedsada Tangstrakulwong
Curator: Pichaya Piyassapan

We live our daily life depending on our sight and the preconceived belief of the world. But sometimes, our mind can trick us to believe we have seen things that we might have never really looked at. So, wouldn't it be better to actually start noticing the world around us carefully, learning its details, and seeing it for what it truly is.

*At present, The Art Center is open Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm and closed on Saturdays. However, if you would like to visit us and check the dates and time of our gallery hours, please call 02-218-2965.

**Closed dates in April starting from April 9: The Art Center will be closed April 13-17 for the Songkran Festival. We will open again on April 19.

SYMBIOSIS by Alongkorn Lauwattana

By Alongkorn Lauwattana
22 June 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday ,22 June 2010, 7pm @Galerie N on Withayu Rd.

SYMBIOSIS is the latest exhibition by the well- respected artist Alongkorn Lauwatthana. Rooted in Buddhist thoughts, his works reflect the maturation of his beliefs and as depicted in his earlier projects, he seeks to explore and convey the message that everything in the world is all ONE, interconnected and that everything depends upon and coexists with each other. Light needs darkness, flowers needs bees… all mankind belong into a brotherhood, where man and woman become one, where they complete and enhance each other. Man is light; woman is shadow and they merge together to complement each other in opposite ways. Within humans the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, tongue, body and spirit all perform different functions, yet these function when tied together contribute to make us human… our strength and weakness are intertwined…if we look close we’ll see that which we thought was disparate actually create harmony and balance in the world in which we live.

In this series of work, the artist experiences his thoughts through vivid forms and colours that intertwine with all the elements; they show the inseparable relationship of things in the world.
“Life and the world are cyclical, nothing is permanent, there is rise and fall, birth and sickness, glory and defeat… and the laws of nature that keep everything in balance.”
