Until May 31
Even though we live in a high tech world with vast amounts of information at our fingertips, we are still searching for answers to age old questions: “what is the meaning of life?” and “why do we feel lonely?” When artist Narissara Pianwimungsa looks at people she can sometimes see their unhappiness emanating from within. It’s apparent that we, as humans, have a hole in our hearts that can never be filled, only patched up. These feelings are both abstract and personal, so the artist uses the animal form to represent these feelings—because animals have a close relationship to us. In turn, they link to our subconscious, and Narissara uses embroidery both to heal and to remind people of feelings they may have forgotten. After graduating in 2004 with a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Silpakorn University (she completed her BFA in 1996) she has been in several group shows as well as having two solo exhibitions. In 2003 she won the Purchase Prize Award, and in 2016 she was awarded a Silpa Bhirasri Creativity Grant from Silpakorn University.
