An artist’s work is very often the product of inner contemplation and meditative ritual. This concept, specifically when applied to abstraction, is profound, relying on the focused attempt to move beyond conditioned thinking into deeper states of awareness. This ‘movement’ – or journey, rather – is key, as an artist’s process is by and large a quest to manifest memory. But what does that path, which is above all a private one, look like? What happens when artists follow those trails of thought? Where do they bring us and what, if anything, should we expect to see at the end?
These questions are prompted by Somyot Hananuntasuk in his latest solo exhibition, “Intangible Journeys”. Having spent the last 40 years in Munich, Germany, the Thai artist has found himself at a moment of pause, lending his solo exhibition an air of intensely-personal introspection.
Come meet Somyot on Saturday 4 May , from 2-5pm at our gallery, and share your intangible journeys.
