|Ghosts of Bangkok D.Price-Ewen 2012|
I've not had much time to art, but the week long holiday ends tomorrow and I finally have something to show. So, here it is - a new turn for me: abstract. The choice is deliberate - it is the only style I could think of to reflect my feelings about this ancient city. The ghosts of the past are everywhere. As you move through the city, you also see nature and industry striving to co-exist and, although it's not an impossible existence, there have been some losers as a result of phenomenal progress in this developing country. These then, are the ghosts of Bangkok.
This new work also heralds the start of a series, keyed towards my first major exhibition which will be staged in Bangkok, naturally. Just don't ask me when or where exactly! Ha!
I'm also returning to blogging after many tardy, half-hearted attempts. The fact that I get plenty of teacher holidays make it seem more manageable. I see a few of my old blogging buddies are still here but quite a few have also dropped off the landscape.
