Sombat Permpoon Gallery, Bangkok
3 August - 2 October 2016
The exhibition “Tribute” derived from the unique style of the Sombatpermpoon Gallery where artworks by Thai masters are collected and exhibited. Although some had passed on, but their works still inspire and are continually studied by up-and-coming young artists. This has created an invincible connection between the old masters and the next generation of artists. Taking this connection a step further, The curator invited 17 artists at various stages of their career (early to established) to create new work under the Ganesh theme, using ceramic as the main material. Most Thai artists regard Lord Ganesh as the Grand Master of Art. In this exhibition, he represents a seamless art link that runs through the different generations of Thai artists. Through personal experience, interpretation and faith, “Tribute” presents a new perception and contemporary views of Lord Ganesh.

As an artist whose prefer medium is ceramic, I have selected 8 artists who create work that i found beautiful. pleases my aesthetic senses, both for the sight and the brain. The work in Return to Beauty exhibition has a combination of great qualities, such as shape, colour, form, technique skill and refine concept.
To me, when refer to the beauty of ceramic, the Chinese blue and white porcelain first came to mind. Thats why I asked participant artists to create their work respond to the Blue and White colour scheme.
