Coup de Coeur : Apawan Kultawanich, the beauty of translucency

Apawan Kultawanich (Thailand) takes a familiar object and transforms it, exploring « the beauty of translucency. »

«   The inspiration of my work comes from material experimentation. Plastic drinking straws is ready-made object that is overlooked its high potential properties. What made an object valuable? Through the research and experiment, Plastic drinking straws is transformed into material for jewellery. Translucency and optical effect are the outstanding characteristics of plastic drinking straws which are utilized as theme in my project.  The surprising biomorphic feature of melted plastic straws inspires the simplified organic shape of work pieces. I aim to capture a timeless delightful sense that is similar to the one we receive from natural object. Furthermore, the natural sense enhances tactile qualities illustrated through delicate and dynamic patterns and forms. My work explores the beauty of translucency through the plastic drinking straws, and challenges perception of material value in jewellery. The plastic drinking straw is transformed by experimental processes so as to bring out its aesthetic value. My work is a combination of optical effect, translucency and natural shape which result in an eye-catching delicate craft work. The optical effect in my work will change depending on the light and background behind the pieces when it set on the body. »

EXPO ‘(Not) An Englishman in Bangkok: Y-UK’ – ATTA Gallery, Bangkok (Thailand) – 28 Mars-28 Avril 2013

« (Not) An Englishman in Bangkok: Y-UK »

"(Not) An Englishman in Bangkok: Y-UK" -   Artists: Apawan Kultawanich, Bunvara Wannapin, Chayawat Ungrungseesopon, Jittrakarn Bunterngpiboon, Kuntee Sirikrai, Panjapol Kulpapangkorn, Siripim Apinuntakulchai.  -  ATTA Gallery (Bangkok, Thailand)  28-Mar-2013 - 28-Apr-2013    website: www.attagallery.com  mail: info@attagallery.com
The Exhibition “(Not) an Englishman in BKK: Y-UK” presents woks of young Thai jewellery artists/designers who received their post graduate Jewellery Design degrees from various prominent institutes in the United Kingdom. 
Living and studying abroad pose a unique experience for us Thai students as we are constantly pulled by two forces. One force comes from new experiences in foreign land, along with its new and exciting culture. Another force comes from old habits from our Mother Land and its culture and traditions that are so familiar to us. The two forces constantly shake us and make us think more about what’s going on around us and how to form our ways of communication.
Participating artists/designers have created pieces of jewellery based on their personal thoughts, interests and experiences. 
The branching out of thoughts of these designers who have stepped out of traditional boundary into another reflects new movement in the contemporary jewellery scene in Thailand. It makes us look back and re-examine possibility and boundary of jewellery…and that maybe there is no boundary at all…
