Buddha images from 14th century, antique ceramics from Bago, jewels, old puppets, instruments are only a few of the wonderful selection of objects to be on display for more than six months!

brighton festival

A good article on the Burma-themed Brighton Festival was published in the Urban Times. The response to the Burmese contemporary art there was enthusiastic. One of the artists there is one of our favourites, Eikaza Cho.

“Before my brush touches the canvas, I don’t predetermine what I am going to paint.”

Ko Cho (Mr Cho), as he is known, has a particular use of colour, line and distortion which play out unpredictably in his exercise books and in paper work. Many of his works are fully abstract or feature recurrent motifs such as the owl, cat or figures from the spirit world such as the Lokanat, guardian spirit of the world.

About a dozen paintings are still in London. If you saw anything there that you are kicking yourself for not having bought, contact suriyagallery on gmail dot com.

waterproof

The new exhibition starts today — a great variety of watercolours. Open until 28 February, from 10.00 to 18.00.

Pansodan Gallery itself has recently shown itself to be waterproof and smokeproof — it came through a fire in the building without damage to the many artworks displayed and stored on the premises. There was some damage to the rooms, but none to the art.

With thanks to the firefighters.
