Different Strokes, Modern Visions of Asia
By Jirapat Tatsanasomboon, Kamol Tamseewan and Shi Wei
Private Event with CitiGold, Cuscaden Branch, Singapore (Reception: 20 November 2009)
The three artists present varied expressions each arising from contemporary Asia. While Kamol Tamseewan and Jirapat Tatsanasombon, both Thai artists, paint their familiar subjects in new metaphors, Chinese sculptor Shi Wei imbues his creations with the angst and ambiguity of modern existence. Kamol's black and white portraits on large canvases are both abstract and realistic- a visual treat, alive with energy and movement. Jirapat creates at once entertaining and engaging compositions with the unmistakable qualities of Thai culture –evident in the colours, symbols and the juxtapositions as well. Shi Wei's sculptures on the other hand depict women at once liberated, sensual and yet forced to compel to norms of desirability.
