In his latest art exhibition, entitled ‘Story From My Garden’, Thai artisit Srijai Kuntawang shares with viewers his impressions and observations gleaned during the course of an ordinary day. His impressions are rendered somewhat extraordinarily as he lets his imagination guide the narrative. What we are left with is a reflection of the pure pleasures to be discovered from spending a day in his shady garden in Northern Thailand.
The exhibit features woodcut and acrylic paintings, with the subjects being the many living creatures that dwell in the artist’s garden. The scenes of nature change through the time but the setting remains constant. These works are almost like a self-portrait, illustrating the simplicity of the artist himself – as represented by the element of artworks. It speaks of the artist – the way he lives and the place he was born – recording the cycling of time, from the present to the future and then turning back to the past. So, the audiences can feel the imprint of time blooming and leaving.
The opening reception will be held on Sunday July 16 2017 at 7:30 pm at DUKE Contemporary Art Space. The exhibit will run from July 16 – August 16 2017.
