‘See Through: See True No.5’ by Pornsawhan Jansook.
Ardel Gallery of Modern Art is holding two solo exhibitions by young, emerging female artists who reflect their perspectives towards life through mixed-media works.
The "Emptiness" show reflects the outstanding skills of Kamolphan Chotvichai, whose concept of self-examination is based on Buddhist principles which say changes, movement and the vicious life cycle must be concentrated on.
The concept is portrayed through printed and manipulated images of her body which represent emptiness.
In "See Through: See True", Pornsawhan Jansook focuses on the concept of the value of life and an appreciation for the changing condition of physical appearance.
Her works incorporate digital printing and metal weaving.
The picture of woman symbolises life while metal net represents protection to the body and mind.
The connection of life and surroundings is also emphasised and reflected.
Both 'Emptiness' and 'See Through: See True' will be on show at Ardel Gallery of Modern Art from Aug 1 to 25. The gallery is at Bella Ville on Boromratchonnanee Road and opens Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30am to 7pm and 10.30am to 5.30pm on Sunday. Call 02-422-2092.
‘Body’ by Kamolphan Chotvichai.
