The exhibition Eclipse features a series of paintings by Prasong Luemuang, depicting scenes of one of the most historical moments known to humankind as the whole world braved through a great pandemic together. The artist spent three years observing and reflecting upon this unprecedented time, viewing it both at a distance and close up through his own personal experience and his signature artistic practice, and marvelously rendered it into a set of massive paintings, the largest he has ever created. This solo exhibition serves to showcase Luemuang’s new series to the art scene of Bangkok in a decade. The exhibition brings together two series with 12 artworks and many paintings not yet seen by the public, encapsulating Luemuang’s unique artistic approach and style drawn from five decades of consistent and prolific practice.
Prasong Luemuang (b. 1962, Lamphun)
Prasong Luemuang has been a prolific painter his entire life. Born in the province of Lamphun, he began his artistic endeavor at Sirikorn Fine Art School in Chiang Mai, after which he joined the Thai Art Department, Faculty of Painting, Sculpture, and Graphic Arts, Silpakorn University in Bangkok. Despite not completing a degree, he was trained under the supervision of Chalood Nimsamer and started to gain recognition through the many awards he received during his time as a college student. As a visual artist, Luemuang masterfully conveys his experience, perception, and surroundings through distinguished paintings.
