A Shadow of Giving

A Shadow of Giving
Tawatchai Puntusawasdi (Thailand) 'A Shadow of Giving' 2018 brass, copper & galvanized sheet 100 x 260 x 350 ซม. Collection of the artist Tawatchai Puntusawasdi creates his sculptures from precise mathematic calculations while incorporating handcrafted elements. He possesses great expertise in the use of materials such as wood, stones and metal. His works play with the aspect of the world's gravity to challenge the viewers' understanding of volume and space, communicating with and questioning them about ego and impermanence in Buddhist philosophy. At Wat Pho, his research focuses on perspectival structures inspired by two-dimensional mural paintings of almshouses that symbolize offering, selfless deeds, and respect. For Tawatchai, measurements and mathematical precision are paths to solitude and bliss.
