"Map of My Life"
Pran J. Sutham
An Artist’s Statement
Please consider reading my brief artist statement below:
"This unnamed art piece serves as a map: an illustrative overview of the journey of my life so far. The specifically chosen red and blue lid boxes line up to form the flag of my native country, the Kingdom of Thailand. Taking a lid off one of the boxes will reveal a miniscule image of either the flag of a nation I’ve been to or a panorama sketch of a visited city's scenery. My goal is that an observer should be able to relate the sketches of unspecified places with his/her past experience. The sketch of Singapore, for example, gives the picture of a heavily modernized, urban setting, which viewers might be able to associate with their hometowns."
