Si Sa Ket-born artist Sakaranon Supap, known for his examination of culture in Thailand's Northeast, has attempted to capture children's naivety in his latest exhibition, "The Innocence".
Presented by Carpediem Galleries and on show at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, the exhibition features 17 oil on canvas works representing the backstage activity of a group of girls preparing for a traditional Thai dance. Through his eyes, they were lively and naive girls who have yet to explore the world and he began to wonder what they are going to do in later life and how long they could maintain their innocence.
Sakaranon said: "I wish the best for their future but all I can do now is to capture these few images of their innocence on canvas."
