Artist Uses Layers of Thread and Netting to Create Striking 3D Artworks


Holographic ghostly portraits by  Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew

on Yavuz Fine Arts

One of the discoveries at Art Stage Singapore this year was Thai artist, Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew’s layered painting-on-silk installations shown by Singapore’s Yavuz Fine Art. The 3D visual effect of the transparent silk-curtain paintings is eerie; there is a sense of airlessness and nausea. The technique recalls that of Xia Xiaowan (b.1959), who creates painting installations with layered glass, but his work is about physiological distortions and repulsions, whereas Uttaporn’s are about lassitude and ennui, the barriers to memory, the dust collecting on consciousness.

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
