Paintings by Panya Vijinthanasarn and Andrew Stahl will be presented at Conversations: The Vivid Real, their joint exhibition at Thavibu Gallery, which runs July 19-August 31.
Both artists are committed to painting as a contemporary medium. They focus on the discussion of the poetic, imaginative and symbolic and share their belief in the ability of paintings to present a multi-layered and complex poetic view of the world around them. Andrew and Panya often use their paintings to present contradictory arguments or unexpected juxtapositions of both scale and subject matter.
Panya‘s paintings revisit and reinvigorate traditional Thai and often Buddhist iconography with a modern twist. Andrew’s paintings approach the vivid with reference to surrealist ideas. His interest in Asian culture stems from artists’ residencies in Thailand and other parts of Asia. Both artists value the contemporary possibilities presented by intercultural exchange.
