Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital, Manipulated, New Media and Photogram on Plastic and Canvas.

I took this picture at a home in Bangkok at Sukhumvit 39, that was in 1960s home of Italian writer Tiziano Terzani named the Turtle house. I was there on Easter Sunday 1 April 2018 evening, just a few days before this tropical paradise house with garden and big pond with turtles was demolished to gave way to a boring ugly concrete skyscraper.
I read all the books of Tiziano Terzani in 2005, loved them and never even slightly imagined that I would ever see this house and even less that I would spend an evening there in the company of Khamsing, their gardener of 35 years. It was a magic evening at this tropical oasis with lush vegetation, a pond, birds, peace, oxygen, charged with some very special, powerful and unique energy.… At the same time surrounded by luxury condos that in the end swallowed it.
The garden was alive. I found the palms forming such a beautiful pattern while harvesting UV light.

It is a photograph, but I also hand painted over it a little bit with acrylic paint in an almost unperceivable way, but it makes the artwork more complex, powerful, original and unique.

160 x 200 cm, digitally altered photograph on textured pvc, hand painted over with acrylic paint, edition of 12, 2018.

The photograph is sold unframed, but can be framed at additional cost.
