Symbols of Buddha‘s faith by Anan Ratchawang-in

An art exhibition by Anan Ratchawangin
October 14 – November 14, 2010, @ Galerie N on Witthayu Rd.

“Symbols of Buddha ‘s faith” is the latest solo exhibition by Arnan Ratchawang-Inn. After a four-year hiatus, he is excited about displaying his new works. The artist has created a form of Traditional Thai contemporary art which symbolically portrays faith, peace, purity and light based on Buddhism.

Arnan was raised in a rural atmosphere closely linked to local art and culture, customs and the Buddhist way of life. He absorbed all the power of artistic beauty, culture, tradition and faith. These strong influences motivated him to learn more and conduct extensive research into Thai art which led to the development of his highly unique work.

The artist received 1st Prize, Gold Medal in the Semi Tradition Art Section, at the 23rd Bua Luang Art Exhibition and participated in the Thai Contemporary Art Exhibition in 2009 at Moulin des Acacias, France.

Stories Out of Burma

Art Exhibition: Stories Out of Burma
Artist: Htein Lin (London) and Chaw Ei Thein (New York), Burmese
Curator: Shireen Naziree
Dates: 13 November – 4 December, 2010
Venue: Thavibu Gallery
Open: Monday – Saturday: 11:00 – 19:00

Both Chaw Ei Thein and Htein Lin are recognised as Burma’s most profiled international artists. Chaw Ei Thein resides and has her artistic practice in New York and Htein Lin works and lives in London. STORIES OUT OF BURMA are their individual artistic dialogues that relates to their lives as artists in the Diaspora. Despite distances and time, Htein Lin and Chaw Ei Thein share a common ground both personally as artists and friends that relate prolifically to their shared personal histories in Burma.

In STORIES OUT OF BURMA, Chaw Ei Thein relates her personal physical and emotional struggles as a Burmese woman and as an artist living in New York. But her most poignant expressions relate to her comparative studies between her homeland and New York. Her series of paintings relate to her transient status and her ongoing efforts to bring her artistic voice to the forefront. In her accompanying video work, Chaw lends an eloquent uncertainty to the possibilities and politics of images and their circulation through space and time as she acknowledges the conflicts between her two worlds.

Htein Lin’s series of paintings for STORIES OUT OF BURMA offer intimate views of issues that are vital to his personal world as threads of Burma continue to remain an integral part of his world. Despite having digested a very cosmopolitan outlook and developed a broad image both as a painter and as a conceptual artist, Buddhism remains a key patent both to his personal self and his art. The realization of this is defined both in his paintings and in his performance piece specifically choreographed and produced for STORIES OUT OF BURMA whereby he aims to involve the viewer an opportunity to share his Burmese heritage.

“What lies within us” by Haritorn Akarapat

“What lies within us”

A solo exhibition of
Haritorn Akarapat

29 Sept - 10 Nov 2010

Opening reception 29 Sept 2010 6pm onwards

Exotissimo in partnership with the Toot Yung Gallery are pleased to present What lies within us, a solo exhibition by the renowned Thai artist Haritorn Akarapat. With this new exhibition, Haritorn Akarapat proposes again a surprising “come back” to the Bangkok art scene; returning with a new strength, a new medium: Painting!

Haritorn Akarapat is an established sculptor in Thailand. His work is easily recognizable as he developed a strong identity during his over 20 years career, exploring new ways to approach the bronze and patina techniques. This sudden change of medium has been in the artist’s mind for several years. He was just waiting for it to be ripe as he says with a wide smile.
Akarapat’s long and challenging career is marked by intense periods of activity, usually culminating in a heroic masterpiece or group of master works, followed by startling renewal and rethinking of his subject.

This exhibition proposes to make a parallele between his previous sculpture works and his new paintings. It is a transit showcase of his work in progress. “What lies within us” is an occasion to see how the artist nourishes himself from his previous works to finally come to explore an unknown matter.
His paintings are a passionate explosion. Full of humour, freedom and odd colours...they are refreshing and ironic.The artist focuses on the power and simplicity of subject and the vibrancy of the colors . It is a subtil mirror like response to his latest solo show at Tang Contemporary Art Lapse of Memory. Again exploring the resonances between the pieces of a very numerous serie. As to grab the diversity of life and beings, Akarapat accumulates these distorted faces, skulls and animals with a furious appetite. They are painted intuitively, with quick and spontaneous flashes of bright, transparent colour. He treats the paintings as virtual figurations of theological speculation and vehicles for spiritual meditation. The figurative elements act as a mirror for the observer, the non-figurative elements invite contemplation.

References to buddhist theories, which in the earlier works had been more ambiguous, are more directly emphasised. These works have allowed Akarapat to revisit and excavate the past, pushing his own painterly vocabulary to create works that are fresh and liberated.

Journey. . . an exhibition of contemporary sculpture by Tanadol Derujijaroen

Gossip Gallery @Silom Galleria hosts . . .
‘Journey’ . . . an exhibition of contemporary sculpture
by Tanadol Derujijaroen

Opening reception on Thursday 23 September 2010
Time: 6:00 P.M
Location: Gossip Gallery, Bangkok

Gossip Gallery @Silom Galleria, one of the leading contemporary art galleries on Silom Road, is pleased to host Tanadol Derujijaroen’s contemporary collection of sculptures entitled ‘Journey’. This exhibition, which is the artist’s first solo show, will officially debut on Thursday, September 23, 2010, and will be available for public viewing through October 30, 2010.

Like all of us, Tanadol’s personal life is a collection of countless of experiences. Some he recalls fondly; others he wishes had never occurred. Nevertheless he remembers them all, and uses these memories with his considerable talent to create sculptures that represent his emotions and dreams. ‘As a child from a broken home, I’ve always dreamed of a perfect family. To realize this fantasy, I have created a group of sculptures, titled the “Family Series, which depict that part of my childhood that was wanting and incomplete. Created in bronze, these works depict the ideal family which I’ve been longing for.’

‘My other works being shown in this exhibition also dwell on personal memories and, in fact, serve as my personal diary, where I have mentally recorded my thoughts and experiences throughout my life. Each piece sums up my feelings toward a particular incident and conveys a story. Some figurines may look happy, but they conceal an emotional scar. Like “a picture (that) is worth a thousand words”, a sculpture can also speak. Despite the fact that these works speak about my personal life and dreams, I believe that these themes are concepts that everyone can relate to,’ Tanadol Derujijaroen concludes.

Khun Siripa Chotchung, the managing director of Gossip Gallery, said that ‘I am very excited that Gossip has been chosen to host Tanadol’s first solo showing. This exhibition not only speaks of the dreams and desires of one man, it illustrates a life long journey of a man that is worth documenting. I would like to thank Tanadol for allowing us a glimpse into his personal diary. I would also like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to take a journey with me and, in the process, come to understand Tanadol’s hopes and dreams through these amazing sculptures.’

‘Journey’ will be officially opened for public viewing on Thursday, September 23, 2010. This superb exhibition of sculptures by Tanadol Derujijaroen will be introduced by Dr.Kongkiat Opaswongkarn, the Chief Executive Officer of the Asia Plus Securities Public Company Limited (ASP) at 6:30 p.m. at the Gossip Gallery @Silom Galleria (BTS: Surasak Station). Tanadol’s fellow artists, interested private collectors, and members of the general public are invited to join in the celebration of the life and spirit of this incredible sculptor.

All 37 ‘Journey’ sculptures that are created from bronze, fiber glass and sandstone are available for purchase.

For more information on this unique collection, please contact Khun Siripa Chotchung at (02) 237-5568 and (089) 450-4549 or Khun Chonticha Choochart at (081) 440-3896 or visit the Gallery’s website: Gossip Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; closed Sundays.

Shell (Shocked) by Rattana Salee

Art Exhibition: Shell (Shocked)
Artist: Rattana Salee
Dates: 23 October – 20 November, 2010
Venue: 3D@Thavibu

Thavibu Gallery will once again be staging an art exhibition, "SHELL
(SHOCKED)", by Thai emerging artist, Rattana Salee, from October 23 - November 2010 in Suite 307.

Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Shell (Shocked) with new three-dimensional works by Rattana Salee. Marking her debut solo exhibition, the atmospheric sculptural installation comprises metal and plaster architectural structures that reflect the private and communal complexities of urban living.

Evidence of supposed progress, the Thai capital has become one vast construction site. The builder’s raucous rattle of drill and hammer shakes almost every street and soi in the city, while inhabitants seek mental and spiritual solace in the claustrophobic rectangular stacks they call home. Within such domestic confines occupants establish individual expressions as refuge, yet the world beyond continues to infiltrate.

Attempting a personal connection with the geographic, social, and psychological framework of the cityscape, Rattana’s haunting sculpted frames evoke the hundreds of decaying, incomplete towers that still pierce the capital’s skyline, residues of economic fallout from the 1997 financial crisis. Skeletons to human abandon, her lineal steel carcasses are also potent epitaphs to Bangkok’s recent street turmoil, which left burnt down buildings as disturbing reminders to the fragility of an expanding megalopolis.

Having participated in several domestic group exhibitions, 28-year-old Rattana is currently studying an MFA in Sculpture at Silpakorn Univeristy.

Shell (Shocked) is the sixth exhibition in the yearlong project, 3D@Thavibu, highlighting three-dimensional art in Suite 307 of Thavibu Gallery. Curated by Steven Pettifor, 3D@Thavibu presents a series of exhibitions featuring established and emergent Thai and international artists

"Reflection" by Melanie-Lou Gritzka-del Villar

The Pikture Gallery proud to present Exhibition of artist@work project
"Reflection " by Melanie-Lou Gritzka-del Villar

Please join us for the Opening reception on Thursday 7th October at 6:30 pm.
at The Pikture Gallery : 2nd floor, Sukhumvit 49/1

This exhibition will showcase an interactive installation completed during Melanie's residency at the artist@work studio.

We have the pleasure of having Brian Curtin, Art Critic and Lecturer at Bangkok University, to inaugurate the exhibition.

The exhibition will be on display until Thursday 4th November 2010.

The Pikture Gallery opens Tuesday to Sunday 10 am. - 7 pm.

According to Hegel, ‘When we "have the measure of something", we have effectively recognized it, we have "fixed" it in our consciousness and differentiated it from others, but this recognition is only "implicit". When we make this recognition explicit, we "recognize" something, and this is the moment of reflection, the beginning of the stage of Essence’.

This is but one interpretation of the word ‘reflection’, but one that pin - points a current perception I am reflecting on through my practice. It is within the ambiguity of the word ‘reflection’ that my work during this residency has evolved. With this site – specific installation, I hope to touch upon notions of transience and transformation in life – those moments of change and realization that stand out, though subtle and ethereally, within the chain of experience.

I have approached this residency with a tentative framework based on my research on metamorphosis and transformation. During the process, I tried at all times to take the studio space and its emotional impact on me into consideration. My ideas kept on oscillating between various potential resolutions, which explains the variety of experiments undertaken during the residency. It has been a challenging yet rewarding experience to explore new working methods and materials – from interacting and collaborating with artist friends, technicians, specialists in various fields, to trying out unfamiliar material such as translucent sticker – film and polyethylene.

The blog was a very useful too to keep track of my seemingly incoherent ideas and interests. In the end, it was the link that pointed me towards the interpretation I felt most comfortable with.

Camouflage by Jirapat Tatsanasomboon

Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Camouflage with new paintings by the Thai artist Jirapat Tatsanasomboon on 18 September - 10 October, 2010.

Jirapat is well known for applying a pop-art style to his paintings which often feature interactions between the East-West and Modern-Traditional. He appropriates images from well-known European masterpieces and inserts readily identifiable Thai iconography as a commentary on Thai society by re-interpreting the celebrated master paintings and using them as 'camouflage'.

Jirapat Tatsanasomboon was born in 1971 in Samut Prakarn and completed his Master Degree at Silapakorn University in 1999.

Jirapat is well known for applying a pop-art style to his paintings which often feature interactions between the East-West and Modern-Traditional. He appropriates images from well-known European masterpieces and inserts readily identifiable Thai iconography as a commentary on Thai society by re-interpreting the celebrated master paintings and using them as 'camouflage'. His heroes are depicted in a distinctive Thai setting and are often seen interacting with traditional Thai heroes and mythical figures, most of whom are characters in the Ramakien (Ramayana). Jirapat also takes on well known icons spanning from old master paintings to stars in the entertainment industry and American superheroes and puts them in a new, Thai context. Jirapat has participated in several art shows in Thailand and also in Korea (2003), USA (NYC, 2006), Singapore (2008), China (Olympics, 2008), India (2009), Monaco (2010) and Argentina (2010).
