Until November 27
Shrouded in ethereal layers, the work of Somboon Hormtientong expresses a tendency towards minimalism with a keen consideration for colour as a break from stark spatial forms. The artist offers himself as a multivalent pillar of Thai contemporary art, wherein the viewers too must offer themselves to the ranges of intensity and tailored forms of minimalism that imbue his works—a one-way relationship could not exist. Hormtientong remains one of Thailand’s masters of painting, and his work in abstraction undertakes an honest consideration of European influence without wholly masking his roots in Southeast Asia.
