Wantaya Thitipaisal – Stage Fright

Stage Fright” is a captivating collection of thought-provoking artworks meticulously crafted over the course of a year. This series delves into the profound intricacies of ambiguity and self-negotiation while exploring the impact of privacy on human relationships. Thitipaisal skillfully blurs the lines between public exposure and private censorship, inviting viewers to contemplate the delicate balance of decision-making in uncertain circumstances.

Each canvas embodies a unique presence, with brushstrokes, colour choices, and corrections representing moments of hesitation between abstraction and figuration. An abstraction is a form of censorship, shielding the artist’s private self while granting viewers the freedom to interpret and engage with their own thoughts and emotions.

The subject matter of “Stage Fright” revolves around the complexities of day-to-day interactions, ranging from gossip and rumours to cultural myths, social constructs, virtues, and introspective acts of self-reflection, penance, remorse, and repentance. This collection exudes a touch of postmodern sensibility, drawing inspiration from actual events, places, and everyday experiences.

The symbolic use of stages acts as a foundation for the artworks, manifesting as platforms, walls, cage-like structures, fences, and floors. Despite their diverse forms, each step symbolizes a space to stand upon, meticulously arranged as dioramas with focused lights casting an evocative glow upon them.

Join us at Richard Koh Fine Art Bangkok as we embark on a journey into the profound world of “Stage Fright“, exploring the interplay of art and meaning, ambiguity, and self-discovery.
