2CHOEY, Talking, 2021, Acrylic on canvas, 160 x 120 cm
“wrap” is a group exhibition by six illustrators who wish to portray the development of an illustration, one of the art forms which has currently been widely accepted. Many illustrators have invented methods and attractive characters to express their perspectives. Through the use of unique languages and a wide variety of characters, illustrations are not only used for a commercial purpose but also for reflecting ideas and contemporariness.
Brightside, Battle Field, 2021, Painting and drawing, 80 x 160 cm
In essence, an illustration is a social observation and an expression of understanding with an attitude. Detailing is an illustration’s beauty, making it unique and able to relate with many other fields. In addition to beauty, an illustration is also a method of studying and understanding various aspects of the world—ranging from global politics, living things, to the relationship of young people. In this era, the existence of illustrators emphasizes the existence of subcultures, creating different tastes and diversity in the arts community.
Pomme Chan, Fatherhood, 2021, Print on paper, 100 x 109 cm, 10 editions
In addition to creating attractive characters, “wrap” also desires to open up the conceptual space of art. The analysis of textures, planes, and internal forms aims to achieve the interaction between objects and space as well as the portrayal of concealing, wrapping, and covering concepts. This is not to obscure or hide, but to discover the physical “texture” and what lies beneath its shape or planes. Each artist uses his/her “method” to show interest and to independently connect what is inside and outside.
TUNA Dunn, Marinate, 2021, Comics on lasercut stainless steel, 29 x 120 cm, Thickness 2 mm
In the competition to present an incredible character, many characters have been invented in the world of illustration. Pomme Chan gives the meaning of home—a living space that encapsulates relationships and life—by showing the activities inside the house. Tuna Dunn shows stories of daily life, relationships, and love that is simple but special and delicate. Brightside expresses the chaos of societies and politics through the characters. The “collage” by Sethapong Povatong is created as a result of research and the collection of old illustrations which are then put together into a new story filled with history and contemporary events. Phannapast Taychamaythakool shows the integration of Eastern and Western paintings that are full of the charm of coloured lines together with diverse characters and 2Choey recreates well-known characters from our childhood memory by redesigning new faces into a unique sign language.
Double O Seth, Chaos, 2019, Analog collage, 38 x 42 cm
Therefore, “wrap” is an exhibition that is keen to explore the fundamental anatomy of spaces and objects, consisting of visible and tangible shapes and textures as well as different types of characters. No matter where these visual languages appear—on visible objects or planes—all the relationships in this world will be interpreted by the artists. At the right time, the characters will be alive and become a part of our lives.
Now … That’s a wrap!
