At ARDEL Gallery of Modern Art (Boromrachchonnee Road)
“Move 2022” by Duenchayphoochana Phooprasert is a new series of art created with clay formed by natural energy such as humidity from water and heat from the burning sun. Once the soft, soaked clay has slowly dried, the evaporated water will cause incredible tension that evokes distortion to the frame. The prominent waves of cracks represent the correlation of change in nature and people’s lives, those who have experienced different types of pressure that lead to better self-realization.
Duenchayphoochana Phooprasert is an artist and author who currently teaches for the Visual Arts Program at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Valaya Alongkorn University. Duenchayphoochana’s works of art have always involved clay. She utilizes raw materials like wood, clay, water, and sunlight to depict her ideas about the relationship between change in nature and change in human beings. When natural energy causes “movement” in the artwork, it is similar to the work of time and events that create both good and evil “movement” for humans. Her creation, therefore, suggests the universal truth about energy shifting that has affected us all along.
