The celebrated sculptor Haritorn Akarapat (Born 1961) explores his passionate interest in concepts of time as they can relate to Buddhist thought. A graduate of Thailand’s prestigious Silpakorn University, Akarapat has developed a unique approach to patina for bronze sculpture. The artist uses vivid colors and seems to almost purify the sensual and demiurgic aspect of clay moulding. References to liturgical rituals can be found in Akarapat’s use of liquid and fire in his processes. Ultimately, a sense of erosion provides a path to insight and, essentially, wisdom.
