The Art Center, Center of Academic Resources, Chulalongkorn University, and JeOn Art Booth are pleased to announce Return to Intimacy, a group exhibition of painting, print, photography and ceramics. This exhibition marks the 4th annual workshop exhibition of JeOn Art Booth and celebrates its 10th anniversary of the program, which is a Bangkok-based art community learning East Asian brush painting. This year’s exhibition showcases the work of not only its twelve member artists, but also eight invited contemporary artists whose cultural and aesthetic backgrounds are diverse. The exhibition opens to the public and the opening reception will feature gallery tours by the artists and curator, Jeong-ok Jeon.

Return to Intimacy attempts to expose artists’ experience of images, sounds and impressions encountered in their everyday life and show how they employ the experience in their art. Based on the acquisition of seeing, hearing and feeling in their lives which becomes a driving force of creation, the featured artists’ works share themes around art and life, and include treatments of imaginary landscapes, childhood memory, cultural identity and nature. They focus on presenting the artist’s inner voice and his/her surroundings through craftsmanship and artistic sentiment. This exhibition also encourages audiences to see the intimate association between art and life and find a simple truth that the beautiful moment emerges when art and life become one.
