Old World Tropics

Old World Tropics reveals my personal encounters during a brief visit to my birth country of Thailand.
I became interested in exploring the simpler side of life and the quieter side of the country, rather than the ongoing way of consumerism or the social and political context or the wider economic situation.

This body of work depicts the mundane, the oddities and the traces of the old customs that exist on a remote island in the south, somewhere which is unfamiliar yet somehow familiar to me. The work portrays remnants of the past overlaid with the present in a place where the activity of the locals reflects their rural background.
