CONCEPT

We see nature as a sort of sanctuary, a halfway house for passing  drifters.
People are so busy nowadays that we don’t think about it, we don’t include it in our routine, it seems as if nature is only a friend when we’re travelers.
Even when we do not appreciate it, nature finds a way to include us.
We neglect the realities of nature, adventures that translate into great stories are not appreciated by us, realities of leeches, ants, being confined by the woods or a soothing walk gone bad, this is a pattern of society, we do not like things that are not ideal, when things deteriorate, we run.
Like everything else, natures changes with time. We cannot see time, like we see nature.
Time is not something we can romanticize,we can romanticize events within time, but does the actual time have a face, does it have a name?

Time takes the shapes of things, because time never ever stands still.
I wish for the concept of time to take the shape of our surroundings, of nature that  constantly picks itself up and moves on. Nature takes its own course whether in the shape of a cloud or a steady flow of the river, not unlike time, it evolves.

CONCEPT
There's always been a kind of ritual in our family; old things that were once used, or even rugged possessions 
that should be long forgotten, bags, hats, and things that I deemed personal. These so called treasures 
were interwoven with memories that appear like flashes of images, of happy times with my family and loved ones.
Each and every object represents something, resembling treasures stored in an old cardboard box.

CONCEPT
 
When I first started to paint this series, I was thinking about what my farang friends were telling me about their experiences with Bangkok nightlife. I myself, often party with both Thai and farang friends at different venues all over Bangkok. Sometimes in pubs and bars, sometimes at a friends house, or very often at my own place.

As these joyous memories came back to me, and with the addition of a little music. I found myself dancing in the studio and started to paint this series of paintings. Which I hope whoever sees them will enjoy them as much as I did painting them.
 
BACKGROUND
 
Piengrutai is a self taught artist. She started painting full time in 1997, her main medium being oil and acrylic on canvas.

She currently resides in Australia and Thailand.
