The textures of sea fibre, rattan rings and jute twine give this work by Pinaree Sanpitak multiple different textures especially in their placement against solid painted wall and tile floor. This to my mind adds a dimension to the artwork called Womanly Bodies as it emphasises the soft pliable form of the the female.
These suspended tubes of different sizes, shape, volume and form follow the female body which has the same variations. The fragility of the pieces belies the inner strength of the work which again mirrors the female with those same hidden inner strengths.
The artwork is described by the gallery that “Rather than offering a literal representation of the body or a fixed definition of femininity, Sanpitak evokes a play of perceptions to convey the complexity of women’s lived experience.”
