Artist Residency and Exhibition:  Sudrak Khongpuang, Thailand

January 12 – February 24, 2018

A Tale of Two Shores

 

South Bay Contemporary at (Zask Studios) Portuguese Bend, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

A reception for the exhibition was held at SoLA Gallery on February 24, 4-7 pm.

With a vivid visual memory and oil colors in various earthy shades, Thai artist Sudrak Khongpuang approaches her canvas, intent on creating the lush landscape that has brought her happiness since childhood. She devoted the first six years of her career to discovering the medium and content that she produces now: surreal displays of nature with a vibrancy and attentiveness akin to viewing the world with young eyes. But she visits California from Thailand for a residency and exhibition with South Bay Contemporary SoLA Gallery to explore her skills, adopt new concepts, and, of course, acquire more memories to tap for inspiration.

Residency and Exhibition at SoLA Gallery: Meeson Pae Yang

July – August 2017

Recent Installations and Paintings

 
Meeson will be in SBC SoLA Gallery for the month of June 2017 working on art that will be for her solo exhibition in August 2017.  She will be working on large ink paintings on mylar and canvas to start, then moving on to installations and sculptures. She plans to work at SoLA 4-5 days a week and the Gallery will be open to public to meet and talk to the artist on Wednesdays 10 am – 4pm through June.

Meeson Pae Yang Statement

The work explores the convergence of science, technology and mythology into a thickly layered stratum of images and objects reflecting systems within nature. Intersections and parallels in systems become unfolding metaphors and imagery to dissect and explore. Much of the work begins by extracting simple elements and then expanding, repeating, and extending these components into transmuted conglomerations. The process of the work involves a methodical collecting of artifacts, images, and sounds to synthesize and compress into expansive visual fields. Working in a variety of media from painting, video, sculpture and installation, each medium is a tool to process natural phenomena from the microscopic to the macroscopic.
