AG Gallery is pleased to announce our new exhibition with Sirikul Pattachote, Flower Offerings, opening on Sunday, September 1, 2018. Pattachote is a Thai artist living and working in New York City. In May 2016, Pattachote had her solo exhibition Things Are Actually Not Falling Apart with AG Gallery featuring her flower and female portrait paintings. In the exhibition we focused on finding peaceful unity within the laws of living a life through the artist’s original watercolor paintings and drawings. Flower Offerings is her second solo exhibition at AG Gallery.

Symbolic offerings are common practice made in Buddhism for multiple reasons but mainly the fundamental importance of offering for the offerer is the act and mind of the offering itself, more than the value of object that is offered. Such material offerings typically involve objects such as food, fruits, water or drinks, incense, candles, and flowers. Although it is visible material that is offered, the main focus of such practice is the mental state of and the action of offering, the material is therefore usually something simple and often from the nature. In this exhibition Pattachote and gallery attempt to create the whole experience of the offerings utilizing visual art and sound. It is possible to send out positive energy from one to others; an energy that receivers can convert to an encouragement for anything that they might need.

Pattachote is one of the artists who has been utilizing painting as a part of her meditative practice. From the material she uses, such as paper, to the medium she uses, such as inks and paints that she prepares for her work, to the subject of her works which is cut flowers mostly prepared and offered to the buddha and her beloved people. In this exhibition the artist also focuses on the meanings of the flowers which she selects and paints in her work.

Please join the Flower Offerings and unite the installation as a receiver. You are all you cordially invited to experience the positive energy of unconditional offerings.

Artist Statement

With evolving techniques and static themes, my process is an active exploration of spirituality, sexuality, mortality, fear and joy; woven together through art and design. I strive to create a playful world; the viewer is encouraged to indulge and get lost in multi-dimensional work. The deeper the inspection, the greater the reward.
