Gossip Gallery @Silom Galleria, one of the leading contemporary art galleries on Silom Road, is pleased to host Tanadol Derujijaroen’s contemporary collection of sculptures entitled ‘Journey’. This exhibition, which is the artist’s first solo show, will officially debut on Thursday, September 23, 2010, and will be available for public viewing through October 30, 2010.

Like all of us, Tanadol’s personal life is a collection of countless of experiences. Some he recalls fondly; others he wishes had never occurred. Nevertheless he remembers them all, and uses these memories with his considerable talent to create sculptures that represent his emotions and dreams. ‘As a child from a broken home, I’ve always dreamed of a perfect family. To realize this fantasy, I have created a group of sculptures, titled the “Family Series, which depict that part of my childhood that was wanting and incomplete. Created in bronze, these works depict the ideal family which I’ve been longing for.’

‘My other works being shown in this exhibition also dwell on personal memories and, in fact, serve as my personal diary, where I have mentally recorded my thoughts and experiences throughout my life. Each piece sums up my feelings toward a particular incident and conveys a story. Some figurines may look happy, but they conceal an emotional scar. Like “a picture (that) is worth a thousand words”, a sculpture can also speak. Despite the fact that these works speak about my personal life and dreams, I believe that these themes are concepts that everyone can relate to,’ Tanadol Derujijaroen concludes.

Khun Siripa Chotchung, the managing director of Gossip Gallery, said that ‘I am very excited that Gossip has been chosen to host Tanadol’s first solo showing. This exhibition not only speaks of the dreams and desires of one man, it illustrates a life long journey of a man that is worth documenting. I would like to thank Tanadol for allowing us a glimpse into his personal diary. I would also like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to take a journey with me and, in the process, come to understand Tanadol’s hopes and dreams through these amazing sculptures.’

‘Journey’ will be officially opened for public viewing on Thursday, September 23, 2010. This superb exhibition of sculptures by Tanadol Derujijaroen will be introduced by Dr.Kongkiat Opaswongkarn, the Chief Executive Officer of the Asia Plus Securities Public Company Limited (ASP) at 6:30 p.m. at the Gossip Gallery @Silom Galleria (BTS: Surasak Station). Tanadol’s fellow artists, interested private collectors, and members of the general public are invited to join in the celebration of the life and spirit of this incredible sculptor.
