By Unchalee Anantawat
Opening reception : Thursday 7th of july
Toot Yung Gallery is pleased to present “Familiar Faces”,
solo show by Unchalee Anantawat.
“I travelled around my mind, wandering around and found those Familiar Faces.”
Unchalee Anantawat was born in Bangkok in 1982 and has exhibited throughout Australia and Thailand as both a solo artist and as part of Melbourne based audio-visual collective Tape Projects. Her work has ranged from temporal, site-specific installations and performances to colour-saturated text illustrations and she has degrees in Graphic Design from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok and in Animation & Interactive Media from RMIT, Melbourne. Now back in her hometown, Unchalee is teaching as a illustration/stop motion lecturer in Chulalongkorn and Bangkok University and of course, still working her way out as an explosive young thai artist.
In this exhibition Unchalee presents an installation and a selection of drawings, paintings and limited prints (for some) extracted from her book Observable Universe freshly published in Australia. Through this psychedelic gallery of portraits, Unchalee is introducing us to her intimate universe. An amazing technicolor family where human forms and celestial creatures intermingle, intermesh with sensuality and humor.
