The Pullman Bangkok Hotel G is currently hosting an exhibition called "Love and Faith", and it's a fitting title as both seem evident throughout the myriad artworks _ embroidery, sketches, paintings and more _ that are on display. From Hathairat Maneerat's loving recollections of her dearly missed mother to Ruthairat Kumsrichan's meditations on Buddhism, the pieces are deeply personal, the artists' feelings on display.

Hathairat's Thai Thangka paintings exude warmth and nostalgia, with their tale of childhood memories and the strong bonds of family. Her most impressive pieces command attention for the labourious hand stitching that obviously went into them, through which she has managed to fuse disparate yet harmonious colour schemes. Her large embroidered wall hangings allow the viewer to delight in an intricate relationship among silk, cotton and beads, which are delicately strewn along the support material.
