Painter Preecha Punklum will present a collection of abstract-like paintings that stem from his inner state of mind during "Connecting Mentality", which is running at Number 1 Gallery, from Saturday to Sept 25.

The exhibition touches on the connective mind, which is attached to things surrounding us and changes over time depending on situations. As the social impact and evolution of the world in all aspects have an influence on our lives, the artist comes up with a way to create art out of his intricate emotions.

He presents his own stories and personal characters through acrylic on canvas paintings that connect viewers to his experiences. One of his works titled Memory Of That Night portrays the joyous atmosphere of a temple fair to help viewers connect to their childhood.

In another outstanding work, Connecting Mentality, he delivers a balance of light and dark tones of colours to create an image of happiness that might look unusual yet harmonious.

According to Preecha, to get to the essence of this exhibition is for us to use our connective minds when viewing each work and then focus back on our inner minds repeatedly to ignite a passion for an inspiring life.

Preecha has earned many awards and participated in national art events and exhibitions. He's currently an associate professor at the Department of Applied Arts, Faculty of Decorative Arts, Silpakorn University.

Number 1 Gallery is on Silom Road and is open Monday to Saturday from 11am to 7pm. However, due to the Covid-19 situation, the gallery is open only by appointment.
