Lost-Self, by Pairoj Pichetmetakul
Curated by Ek Wongleecharoen
I was drawn into Pairoj’s work when I first saw his Abraham Lincoln portrait. It captured the soul of a man in what appears to be a time of hardship. I feel that a portrait should capture the depth and personality of the subject without the distortion of reality. In some of his portraits, he uses a lot of vibrant colors that pop out of the canvas like a layer of texture in different dimensions. Pairoj’s portraits provokes many questions about reality. -Ek Wongleecharoen
