Workplace is pleased to announce the first solo show of London based Thai artist James Prapaithong opening at the gallery’s East London location this September. Large scale paintings of cinematic proportion will be shown alongside small works resembling blown-up photographs reminiscent of places that we all have encountered once before. Seemingly common places and landscape views devoid of any figures become catalysts for visual flashbacks and arenas for emotions to develop. The moon between the trees, the view from a train, the shimmering lights of a city nightscape framed within Prapaithong’s paintings reflect on the human desire to remember precious moments and our inability to fully preserve memories from the past.
