Artist Profile – Sunshine
My name is Sunshine and I am an artist at NIST, Bangkok. I am not sure what came first, being nosey about the world or a natural curiosity with color and paint. Maybe a bit of both. I have only been painting for a few weeks, but during this time I have found a new passion and enjoyment for being free with my work. I have learned that when I relax my best art work happens. A lot of things inspire me, but I guess I can’t say exactly how that takes shape. My experience with people and the relationship I have with them is evident in my work. This is important to me because I value people in my life. I like people. I learn many things from people, both positive and negative experience. I am at my best when I don’t think of a clear vision with my work. My creative juices seem to just flow out of me when I feel an idea, not think of one. Some say that my work has been inspired by Jackson Pollack, others say that I have my own unique style. For me, I just enjoy painting, experimenting with different colors and letting the paint do its work instead of trying to control every detail. I have experimented with portraits and objects, but I do prefer abstract art as a way of expressing feelings. I feel as if time floats away when it is just me and the canvas. I hope the audience thinks about the people they care about in their lives. I would like them to consider the importance of spending time with them in the busy and stressful lives we all lead.
