Phaptawan Suwannakudt’s exhibition Bhava Series presents the subjective state of one’s existence within in-between spaces, full of richness of colour, a density of voices and intonations of place. In Thai, the complexity of the word bhava encompasses existence or the status of being, originating from a Pali word meaning to become or a subjective becoming, in the sense of feeling and ascending within one’s continuous and cyclical worldly existence. In her devotion to her sense of self and discovery, Suwannakudt continues to create works that are contemplative, aesthetic tapestries - condensed communicative murals.
