TJAŠA IRIS homage to KING BHUMIBOL ADULYADEJ
Tjaša Iris created 8 photographs that she dedicated to King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. Tjaša Iris lived in Thailand for many years out of the last 8 years that she spent living/creating/exhibiting in South East Asia. Thailand is her adopted country and King Bhumibol Adulyadej was her King. She spent much of her time creating art at his Bhubing Palace in Chiang Mai. There among King’s rose gardens and thousands of other flowers she found inspiration for many of her paintings and photographs.
This is why the 8 artworks in the series are all flowers. They are 8 in edition of 11. By living in Southeast Asia for so many years, she learnt that numbers are important to people. Number 11 means “every day” and number 8 means “prosperity”. Like the new Merdeka tower in Kuala Lumpur will have 118 floors…ect. As she loves Thailand very much she wishes: EVERYDAY PROSPERITY to Thailand and to the Thai people.
Tjaša Iris is known as colorist, but this time for these 8 artworks she has chosen Black & White, the colors of mourning.
She was releasing her first artwork today and she will release the other 7 ones at 8 in the morning (Thailand time) on days 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26 October 2017, until the day of cremation.
