Senses of Layers : Myint San Myint

“I grew up with silkscreening, it is the family business. It was silkscreens that first excited my appreciation. Most of my most of my works have come to include some silkscreening. To build the silkscreen into a work of art, I create layers upon layers, using strokes and flicks of the brush as well. Images emerge from between these layers, and I focus on the meanings of the images, the variations, the depths, the hints, the shadows. That is the art of it.”

Myint San Myint’s techniques do not reproduce well in a photograph. You need to see the layers on canvas, so come to his new exhibition, starting 3 January 2012 to explore them at Pansodan Art Gallery.

The ways people get here

Pansodan Gallery has been open for over three years now, and most of the people who have found us have done so through their friends, or through web searches — under their own steam, in other words. Here are some search terms from this morning:

Search terms which brought people to Pansuriya Art PostOne of our Than Myint Aung paintings ranks very high in generic image searches for paintings of nature.

Word of mouth has reached the ear of travel writers, and now we expect floods of tourists driving up prices, and our artists buying ever bigger canvases and using ever thicker paint with their new prosperity. But you, you knew us way back when. And you brought your friends. And we all had a great time with the artists.

P.S. Don’t believe it? Buy Lonely Planet here.

P.P.S. Read much, much more about Burmese art, from Andrew Ranard’s book.

P.P.P.S. I don’t even know what NPADC is, do you?

Were you watching the sky the night of 10 December? If so, you noticed that the moon left the sky for a while. She had seen that something extraordinary was happening on a rooftop on Pansodan Street, and came down to listen to a rare unplugged Side Effect performance, and to find out what this BETA Version of CAPism was. She was impressed.

10-17 December, Daily 10.00 am – 6.00 pm

Now inside the gallery, on the 1st Floor, 286 Pansodan Street,
