Moved by human beauty and the mysteries of nature, Inseparable explores interpersonal connections and the bonding of one person to another: unbreakable through the natural truth of inevitable separation.
I paint and draw from both direct observation and my own invention. My process involves the grinding and mixing of pigments then layering these colors with varying degrees of abstraction and realism. The method progresses by continually adding weight and subtracting elements of the human form until the image starts to reveal itself. I sculpt the subject through the application and removal of multiple layers of paint to achieve contrast and subtlety of value in the spaces between.
Through the creation of my work, I am continually trying to learn to understand and accept the truths of nature that we meet only to part. I often look back in my life and see that unplanned experiences with others are the most valuable and each moment is somehow connected to the next, building upon each other to manifest my current life story. I split my time between my hometown of Bangkok, Thailand and my current home in the United States, where I have lived in New York City, Los Angeles CA, Nashville Tennessee and now currently settled here in New Jersey by the sea.
