Sanpitak, visiting artist from Bangkok, Thailand,
Pinaree’s exhibition titled “Noon Nom and Vessels” combines two bodies of recent works. The Noon Nom (literally translated “Nom” is breast or milk, “Noon Nom” evokes nestling at the breast) is an installation of large soft breast shaped sculptures that she premiered last year in a solo exhibit at the Bangkok University Art Gallery. This summer Pinaree made two cast brass vessels lined with gold leaf specifically for this exhibition. The inspiration for the vessels was born from the intention to create an installation on the ARTSHIP in Oakland, California. At Babilonia 1808 the cast vessels are installed with a series of charcoal and wax drawings on paper of vessels. These two bodies of works are the progression of multiple series in a range of media in which Pinaree explores the relationship between the female form and vessels.
