Things Are Actually Not Falling Apart Solo Exhibition by Sirikul Pattachote
Exhibition On View: May 16 – May 29, 2016 Opening Reception: Tuesday, May 17 | 6-8PM
In this exhibition we focus on finding peaceful unity within the laws of living a life through artist Sirikul Pattachote’s original watercolor paintings and drawings. Sirikul’s sensitive and delicately painted works are presented quietly, but the images of fresh living flowers and dying flowers in her works leave an intense visual impression.Through her still-life paintings of flowers that she picked for one of her closest lost family members and with her imagination, you will experience the meditative message, “things are actually not falling apart”.
Sirikul Pattachote is a Thailand-born New York artist who earned her BFA from Silipakorn University of Art and Design (Bangkok). Her artwork is inspired by nature, where she draws upon memories and the experiences of her surroundings in everyday life. The ephemeral quality of life and matter is a central theme in her work. Through her paintings, she attempts to record and preserve certain memories and impressions that highlight the potential good that lies in everyone and everything. Sirikul has exhibited extensively in Southeast Asia and New York.
