ARDEL's Third Place
(Thonglor Soi 10)
Inflorescence is a duo exhibition by artists and art instructors from Silpakorn University displaying two series that are both harmonized and contradict all at the same time. The first artist is Warawut Tourawong presenting Floral Pattern, a series of portraits that appears the models in eccentric clothing and a picture frame without a picture. The concept of the artwork is about the things people value and those they are trying to hide, a contradiction that exists in every detail of a human’s life since normally we have something to keep to ourselves or just want to throw away. The other series Blooming Garden belongs to Theekawut Boonvijit. The paintings, featuring people in the middle of a dreamy flower garden, focus on the subject of freedom of expression and gender equality for those who have the right to think and do what they want, happily.
Warawut’s Floral Pattern deals with the everyday life of people in which as usual must have what they need to hide, to cover up or to leave behind. Meanwhile, there are also things they want to unveil or to let other people know. Such oppositions draw on the application of portrait painting, symbolic objects, scraps of paint and the interior views of residences to express the contradictory that affects every account in our society.
Blooming Garden by Theekawut demonstrates beautiful dreams of human beings overcoming sexual limitations and able to live happily as wishes. Love, relationship, happiness, and freedom freed from the old social values bring forth the symbolic expression through images of humans, rabbits, flowers, and glittering colors to manifest the joy of living in a magnificent garden of paradise.
