Abstract Art and Its Indefinite Meaning

Does abstract art need to be understood or not? When it comes to abstract art, many might often wonder how we should appreciate abstract art. What does the artist want us to see? When viewing art, we encourage viewers to relax and interpret the meaning according to our own understanding, because art is subjective and has different meanings according to the perspective of the viewer.

In The Iconic Treasure auction, Bangkok Art Auction has selected abstract works of 3 forefront artists in the field of abstract art acene, namely Mit Jai Inn, Somyot Hananuntasuk, and Inson Wongsam, to view and auction.

Mit is a significant artist in Installation Art. Although this piece is 3 meters large, it does not make the viewers feel uncomfortable, because of the soft tones that combine with symmetry, it is perfect for uplifting the living room.

1995-53 is the work of Somyot Hananantasuk, a successful abstract artist both in Thailand and abroad. This piece has been exhibited in many exhibitions abroad. Somyot takes inspiration from the rip of old fabrics and conveys them into abstract shapes. Even though it was painted in contrasting colors, it is harmonious to the eyes of the viewer.

The last piece of abstract art, Sleeping, by the National Artist of Visual Arts (Sculpture) named Inson Wongsam.
