Faith – Nature
July 25 - September 1, 2019
ARDEL Gallery of Modern Art
The exhibition "Faith - Nature" presents paintings and prints by 3 artists whose theme is centered on "time". Time brings change to everything: trees, rivers or architecture. These changes relate to the Buddhist philosophy that reflects the truth and beauty in nature.
Chutchawan Wannapo creates a series of oil on linen paintings with his signature pond, duckweeds, and small creatures to record the light and shadow, time, and places in his memory. Arnon Sungvondee renders his Buddhist belief through the forms of Buddha relics symbolizing the prosperity of Buddhism by using stamping technique. Meanwhile, Surasak Sornsena emphasizes the ephemerality by exercising his skills in mixed-technique paintings in order to remind people of the life cycle and its infinite alteration.
