"Pinaree Sanpitak: Metamorphosis"
2003-04-11 until 2003-05-02
Gallery ART U
Art U is pleased to host the first solo exhibition in Japan of Pinaree Sanpitak, one of the most prominent artists in today's Thai contemporary art scene. In the past decade, Pinaree’s work has unfolded itself along the axis of "female body". Being a mother of a child herself, she deliberately uses motif of "breast" as a metaphor of her-self, and by extension woman in general.
In recent years, this breast icon is taking on more abstract features and forming a variation of shapes and colors which arouses in viewer’s mind an ever-changing image of fruit, stupa, vessel, boat and so on. In the latest shows in Bangkok, she incorporated in her installations a wide range of materials such as silk, mulberry fiber, wax, terra cotta… and thus proved her keen sense for the subtlety each substance inherently possesses.
At this exhibition will be on view a variety of mixed media drawings and prints, as well as an installation of oversized breast cushions. The Gallery cordially invites you to experience the sensitive world of Pinarre Sanpitak.
