For his 6th Bangkok solo exhibition at H Gallery, Jaruwat Boonwaedlom, an MFA Graduate of Silipakorn University, presents seven beautifully photo-realistic oil on canvas paintings. The works are an amalgamation of urban scenery and portraits of contemporary Thai women. But these exceptional paintings are also a subtle critique of modern Thai life. Encased behind what appears to be panes of glass are depictions of fashionable young Thai women, but at the forefront is a commentary about how real Thai women exist in the urban jungle—thereby exploring issues of peer pressure and changing values among Thailand’s new generation.
