Visions of Light
Imhathai Suwatthanasilp, Jiratchaya Pripwai and Trinnapat Chiasitthisak
This exhibition presents new work by three Thai artists with a commitment to exploratory forms of drawing. Imhathai Suwatthanasilp works in dense black graphite to produce works with a deep black patterned surface reminiscent of her finely wrought sculptures made from human hair. Jiratchaya Pripwai’s fine linear approach suggests light, billowing forms that fold and collapse upon themselves. Trinnapat Chiasitthisak, trained as an architect, employs heavy ruled ink lines to define ambiguous architectural spaces. In seeking to create a larger space for reflection around drawing, the exhibition explores drawing as artistic expression, but also as innate language and potential in human beings. By the simple act of looking at a drawing one can see both inwards and outwards, immediately encountering the drawer’s relation to the world.
