Veteran painter Nukoon Panyadee will help viewers experience the wonders of music through a collection of new paintings inspired by the shape of musical instruments during the "Line Sign Sound" exhibition, on show at Jamjuree Art Gallery from Saturday.
"My interest in using music as a muse for my paintings stemmed from my observation of beauty that lies in the shape or form of musical instruments," he said. Even though he's a not an avid music lover, nor an expert in any musical instrument, he's fascinated by its form and finds it fun and creative to blend different creative outlets into art.
"If I were to draw a violin with detailed wood patterns and strings, that would be somewhat like a photo or a real form, but my paintings are born of my imagination and my own perception of these forms."
The opening is on Monday at 6pm, followed by a painting workshop by Nukoon, before a flute performance by Assoc Prof Charunee Hongcharu.
Leading saxophonist Koh Mr Saxman will perform on July 29 at 3pm. The exhibition closes Aug 6.
