Be Takerng Pattanopas’s practice emerges from twin obsessions with space within and space without. Over many years, he continues to examine symbols for the interior of the human body as they can be related to ideas of the infinite cosmos, and this preoccupation can be considered a distinctly 21st century, suggesting a sense of the zeitgeist. His current work hybridizes sculpture, installation, and painting through an examination of voids, microscopic visualizations of the body, and tunnels and monoliths. The latter motif was inspired by the mysterious and impenetrable objects of Arthur C. Clarke’s novels and Stanley Kubrick’s famed film. All elements are precisely orchestrated by the artist so that viewers experience a strange ambiguity of experience, where meanings appear perpetually in flux.
