Artist-designer duo Jesse and Chittra Ganning bring trees to life with acrylics and gold and silver leaf in their installations, which will be showcased at the Sofitel So Bangkok starting Feb 19. 

An installation by JC Ganning.

The “Nature Meets Art: Tree of Life” exhibition features 15 contemporary art pieces, which combine traditional gilding methods with modern techniques — an approach for which the duo are renowned. The underlying theme of the pieces is the five elements — metal, wood, earth, water and fire. The earth element will be represented by rich textured backgrounds, water by a canvas of bubbles and metal by the lustre of gold and silver leaf.
