A Woman’s Dream of the Night Sky

A Woman’s Dream of the Night Sky

I am thrilled by the photographs taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of outer space and distant galaxies. The beauty of these amazing photographs has a mystical quality.

I discovered that I could create a blend of my painting and drawing with photographs of the galaxies, and this discovery has opened a universe of possibilities for my art work.

My experience as a ballet dancer has a significant influence on my work. I am enamored with the beauty of line and movement in dance, and much of my work has focused on capturing the strength, muscle tension, and abandon of dancers in motion. I often give my work the feeling of movement even when the subject isn’t about dance.

Some of my pieces use birds as a focus, and others feature elephants, and even giraffes. There is such a grace and beauty in these animals, that to me is earthly and also has an unearthly quality. I like to blend a combination of the universe and a cloudy blue sky to create a connection between people, animals, the earth, and the stars.

Music is another theme that is a natural for this concept, and my husband, a musician, makes a great model. I often create pieces with forms that are not immediately apparent. I might put an elephant within an elephant, or a small dancer almost hidden against a galactic background. I use colors and patterns that make the form visible only after looking closely.

All of the pieces in this show are cast acrylic collage prints, and all of them have an element of the universe or “night sky.” I created these prints over the past year drawing from my thoughts and dreams about people, Thailand, and my life.

“Spiritual aesthetic and self – actualization from the upcoming female artist”

Obviously that numbers of male artist predominate the female artist.
This does not signify that artpieces from female artist is unacceptable or woman has little interest in art.

Many effect from social, culture and/or environment that do not support woman make the situation occur internationally
and also in Thailand erstwhile.

Social progress develops the way people open themselves in expressing their idea without any sexual limitation including in the art field thuscreate many original artpieces from new female artist. In order to acquire the spiritual aesthetic from woman who has their own concept about their social surrounding, culture influence, self-actualization,and sensuous perception about the sexual influence in creating art ; ID-SATEE – the art exhibition – then becomes one of the supporting art activity for upcoming female artist to exhibit their original inventive

“ Impromptu ” (Don-sod) by Naruemon Padsamran

Sombat Permpoon Gallery is delighted to present abstract contemporary paintings and sculptures “ Impromptu ” (Don-sod) by Naruemon Padsamran.

Naruemon’s work is inspired by her appreciation of the unique, lively tempo and conversational style of singing in found in the type of Thai folk music from the Isaan area known as Luk –Tung and Mor-Lam. From this passion for the music, Naruemon creates her art by evolving old Thai folk concert billboards into abstract contemporary paintings and sculptures which convey the “postures” and “rhythm” of Thai Folk music dancers, known as Hang-Kreung. These dancers, usually found performing behind the singers, are moved, from a typical outdoor stage where such concerts are staged, to a gallery space, as part of Naruemon’s vision to communicate the movement and music within a still object.

“Impromptu” Mo-Lam is defined as composing music while in the moment, simultaneously singing or playing an instrument in response to another Mo-Lam band. Naruemon also defines the “Impromptu” series as a conversation within herself, using her success and learning from her failures in the past 3 years to create series of dialogues within her creativity and materials into her improvisation (Don-sod)of Mo-Lam

No Rabbit On The Moon by Supachet Bhumakarn

Supachet Bhumakarn089-9501329 / 084-1771799

“No Rabbit On The Moon”Painting Exhibition by Supachet Bhumakarn, a Thai Artist The Rotunda and Garden Gallery, The Neilson Hays Library on February 1-27, 2011

Subsequent to the exhibition on paintings of elephants at the Neilson Hays Library during 2002-2006, begun from being impressed with the elephant’s conflicting character having an external image of being huge, with black rough skin, but with a cute and intelligent personality. This caused the artist to continue to draw elephants until this animal has become a symbol or his signature work.

His artwork since 2005 has therefore been increasingly added with other symbols such as birds,
trees, falling leaves, and a variety of surroundings. All of these are meant to relate the painter’s feeling at that very moment.

The exhibition to be held again in 2011 will display the symbols of the rabbit and the moon and will represent the artist’s imagination which tells of his fear of losing it as the result of increasing
burdens in making a living. When time permits to look back at himself, he wants to preserve this imagination as long as possible because the path of those who create artworks this part of the imagination is the most important.

No Superego" Bangkok's first solo show by Tada Hengsakpul

The Toot Yung Gallery is pleased to present "No Superego" Bangkok's first solo show by Tada Hengsakpul

19 January - 4 March 2011

Opening reception January 19th at 7 pm

Tada Hengsapkul, born in 1987 in Nakhon Ratchasima, has had a camera in his hands since the age of fifteen.

This very passionate young Thai photographer uses film cameras and video to capture hidden identities of his homeland, Thailand.

The freshness and realism of his photos shift conventional standards of image making in Thailand as well as old power structures and

pre-defined gender roles. The crudeness of the nudes, the sexually explicit pose of his models, and the irony of certain scenes emphasize

the gap between his works and photos which are praised by the local critique and censorship board.

This exhibition is Hengsapkul's first solo show in Bangkok; it presents a broad selection of quality works.

From landscapes to nude, portraits and abstract color fields Hengspkul's photos all have a strong emotional

and elegiac core which will certainly not leave the viewer indifferent.

Two artists with a very different background at TOOT YUNG GALLERY


Two artists with a very different background, vision and sensibility will propose to share with you their inspiration from Thailand

a performance by French artist SKALL

Since the 80ies French artist Skall has elaborated a unique work between, sculpture, installation and performance. This black sheep of the French contemporary art scene evolves in a world of Baroque hybrid figures and objects. The works remind of certain religious ornaments, in which relics, sculptures and amulets are presented on stands, in glass boxes, or cushions with an infinate string of decorative elements meant to highlight the presented object and lift it to a sacred stage. As his sculptures and installations, Skall's performances lift him to a different stand. By accumulating chosen objects, for their beauty or symbolism his body slowly evolves in a non human creature. Every performance is a splendorous metamorphosis; An explosion of colors and forms giving birth to an ephemeral God, Faune or mystical animal.

An insitu work by Hungarian artist SI-LA-GI

SI-LA-GI was born in Tokaj, Hungary in 1949 and emigrated via Italy to Sweden in 1966.
There he studied painting at the Academy of Fine Art and later continued his studies at the University of Stockholm (Science of visual arts). In the meantime he also worked with experimental film and photography in the 1960s and from 1973 also with videos. He was the pioneer in the mid-1970s who began making installations using video. At the end of the 1970s he was co-founder of the Video Nu Studio in Stockholm which gave artists the opportunity to create experimental arts. In his art he uses diverse media, including photography, video, sculpture and installation. His works are concept and philosophy-based investigations of impermanence, life and death, and individual opportunities. Between 1980-1986 he taught art video and painting in Stockholm. He has travelled widely throughout the United States of America, Africa and Asia, where he developed his interest in Buddhism. His martial art studies and long Buddhist retreats have had a great influence on his concept-based art.

"See an unfinished building in front of a soi
See the eyes of workers after six
See lives packed on a bus
See people fidgeting with phones in traffic jams
See simulated lives on TV

‘See’ an inquiry and search for imperfect beauty on the ordinary streets of Bangkok.
Born and grown up in the chaos of a rapidly changing city like Bangkok has caused me to question my everyday existence and has inspired me to present them as art pieces in various media. Perhaps the same ordinary scenery might be extraordinary, if a point of view changes." - Parinot Kunakornwong

Contemporary Japanese Crafts Exhibition

Contemporary Japanese Crafts Exhibition
Experience the Japanese artistic temperament through 64 contemporary craftworks
(14 January – 13 February 2011 @ 2nd Floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre)
What are the common characteristics of contemporary Japanese crafts? Refinement? Simplicity? Ostentatious colors? Or deformation?
The Japan Foundation, Bangkok in cooperation with Bangkok Art and Culture Centre proudly presents Contemporary Japanese Crafts Exhibition. The exhibition features 64 outstanding artifacts from various craft genres, including ceramics, glassware, lacquer ware and metalwork, all created by famous Japanese artists.

Japanese crafts have long history and have absorbed influences from various sources; in ancient times ideas and techniques came from China and Korea but more recently, during the modern era, artistic ideas have been incorporated from the West. These influences have been worked into craftworks over time as artists gradually developed craftworks that reflect Japanese characteristics with traditional forms and decorative embellishments. The techniques and aesthetics of craftworks have been handed down from generation to generation.

The sheer number of genres and variety of techniques used in craft production make it difficult to say exactly what the defining and common attributes of contemporary Japanese crafts actually are. In order to make this clearer to viewers, the curators have classified the 64 works into six common themes: Ostentation, Quiet Refinement, Crispness, Fine Detail, Deformation, Flowers and Birds.

UNITE WITH PAIBOON by Paiboon Thamruangrit

“UNITE WITH PAIBOON” Art Exhibition By Mr. Paiboon Thamruangrit
Open Friday 21 January 2011, 5:30 pm.
at Jamjuree Art Gallery

For over twenty years, I have been on an artistic path, with eight years of running art activities for the children of Sanjorn Sorn Silpa Free Art Project. Traveling around Thailand and some parts of Laos is part and parcel of my existence. And painting is my way of capturing the many beautiful types of scenery that surrounds me. This art exhibit chronicles through art the beauty of nature. I was impressed by the simple way of people’s lives as well as flowers, rivers, mountains, and architectures. The best way for me to capture the magnificence of the place was to put them on canvas and on paper in different techniques of drawing, water color, acrylic and oil painted.

Besides painting, I love sharing my knowledge and the beauty of art with children. As we all know, there is a lack of art teachers and equipment in many remote places in Thailand. My passion to teach brings forth smiles and happiness among the children. Their enthusiasm and high spirits are much more beautiful than any artwork. For me, it is an art masterpiece.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Sanjorn Sorn Silpa Free Art Project, which teaches art for free to poor Thai children in remote places. I have been running this project for over 8 years, held more than a hundred places all over Thailand.

Finally many thanks to all the guest artists I have invited.

Bangkok curated by Brian Curtin

DOB Hualamphong Gallery will hold the art exhibition

/Bangkok/ curated by Brian Curtin

(Hanspeter Ammann, Luke Cassady-Dorion, Tintin Cooper, Gergo Gacsi, Khaisri Paksukcharern, Be Takerng Pattanopas, Ohm Phanphiroj, Kata Sangkhae, Jakkai Siributr, Pim Sudhikam, Jibby Yunibandhu)

From January 25 to February 28, 2011 (Opening Reception on Tuesday, January 25 from 18.30)

2010 was a tumultuous year for Bangkok as on-going political and social discontent segued into violent and deadly protest. The international media paid close attention with a near-senseless proliferation of apocalyptic images of a city besieged. After the protests ended, the Thai government sponsored a campaign that called on this country to unite in view of the publicized fissures.

The title of this exhibition employs a device from the discipline of semiotics in order to communicate ideas of signification rather than representation: the forward slashes of /Bangkok/. In this respect, Bangkok can be considered as the subject of variable meanings and not an entity to be strictly defined. From the recent media images of protest to pervasive views of this city as a symbol of excess to tourist notions of Thailand as halcyon, Bangkok’s current global image appears to be the object of competing interpretations. /Bangkok/ explodes this sense of competition by insisting on the idiosyncratic and the provocative as the basis for any understanding of the city in terms of place, space and representation. /Bangkok/ provides new insights, challenges normalized perceptions and gives value to unpredictable knowledge.

The artworks range from the coolly subjective to the emotionally redolent and from skewed topologies and aggressive realism to surreal analogies.

DOB Hualamphong Gallery requests for your support to kindly promote the upcoming exhibition.

Beautiful Life by Sudrak Utayophas

Beautiful Life by Sudrak Utayophas
15 January 2011 - 10 February 2011
at 9Art Gallery/ Architect Studio, Chiangrai

I want to show how the arms of happiness and peacefulness have enveloped me in my life. In childhood, I stayed with my grandmother and grandfather in the countryside where I was in touch with the simple life of the farmers and those who lived in an agrarian society.

At that time I was too young and inexperienced to appreciate the value of such a life. Now that I have grown and experienced other ways of living and other ways of life, I appreciate what peace
and tranquility I had when living the simple life of a farmer. I am privileged to have had such an experience and to have known happiness and peacefulness of my life.

I wish I could turn back the clock and reach out and touch that life again, but that is impossible as time has marched on and everything in the world has changed.

The memories and feelings I store in my mind, I now transmit to my paintings. I hope by sharing these images, others will see the values and beauty of the agrarian life.

She is an outstanding and distinguished young Japanese-Thai artist. This time, we are presenting her solo show in town with her signature quirkiness on paintings by the use of vivid colors, often employed to create a hidden message. She always collects and records what she feels, sees, and experiences by blending her imagination to her works.

This exhibition will tell us about the changing surroundings and also politic liberty which led everything to violence and depression. It seems that we cannot find the feeling of security in anywhere. The artist would like to discover a best shortcut for escapade, but it’s rarely hard to find.

In 2010, Yuree has launched various works by participation with local and international activities such as Big Mountain music festival 2010, “For” wall painting exhibition at Bangkok Art and Culture Center, Bangkok, Thailand and the special illustration for music video of a song titled Pleng Pry by Pry & May-T Project (collaboration with Thai animator Yongvit Santanaphanich). Moreover, Yuree has also shown her large paintings as one of the selected 10 participants in Kuandu Biennale 2010, Taipei, Taiwan.

Artist’s profile : Yuree Kensaku
Born in 1979 in Bangkok, After graduating from the Department of Visual Arts in Bangkok University in 2002, her works were presented in several solo and group exhibitions including the 2003 Brand New at the Art Gallery, Bangkok University, Bangkok, 108 Paths to Vanity in 2004 at 100 Tonson Gallery, Bangkok, One On Other, a workshop and exhibition at About Studio/ About Cafe, Bangkok, in 2005, and created big murals in “FOR” Wall Painting Showcase by groups of Thai graphic designers and artists at Bangkok Art and Culture Center, Bangkok, Thailand in 2010, and In 2007 Kensaku has presented her solo exhibition Love in platinum Frame at the Art Center, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, as well as being an artist in residency and held solo show The Adventure of Momotaro Girl at the Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama, Japan.
