Pannapan Yodmanee (Thailand) 'Sediments of Migration' 2018 acrylic on concrete, iron size variable Collection on the Artist At a young age, Pannaphan Yodmanee has already received overwhelming success with her work being included within the 'Thailand Eye' exhibition at at Saatchi Gallery, London and winning the 11th Benesse Prize at the Singapore Biennale 2016. Pannhapan combines her knowledge and expertise in traditional Thai art with bold experiments with new materials and methods. Pannaphan extends her use of mixed media and large-scale installations that reflect the connections between Buddhist philosophy and art history. At Khao Mor, Wat Pho, Pannaphan's painted free-standing reliefs are placed delicately to blend with sculptures of contorted hermit figures and Chinese statuettes. Inspired by temple murals full of wisdom, she depicts scenes of Sino-Siamese trade, pilgrimage, mixed faiths and multiple ethnicities.
