Do you remember the lampwork beads by Sherry Bellamy? We posted about the Canadian artist’s amazing work last year; now we want to introduce you to one of Thailand’s few internationally recognized woman artists: Pinaree Sanpitak.
Sanpitak is one of Thailand’s most internationally recognized artists and she collaborated with Venitian glass-blower Silvano Signoretto to produce ‘breast-cloud sculptures that are both solid yet ephemeral in their transparent lustrous presence’.
Information taken from the Thavibu Gallery website:
For over 15 years Pinaree has evolved her primal images of femininity to two recurrent emblems – the vessel and the mound. Far from exhausting her subject, the industrious, explorative artist resourcefully and imaginatively continues to create interesting modes of manifesting intimate interpretations to the female psyche within contemporary society…
The artist has exhibited in Thailand, Singapore, Japan, France, Australia and the USA. Her art installations and works are based around the image of a woma’s breast and we love the way she explores feminine sensuality and desire.
