Three Sixty Five : solo exhibition American Swedish Institute / by Tia Keobounpheng


It was a powerful and emotional experience to hang this show. 365 individual paintings hung on the walls of the American Swedish Institute are honored individually and collectively as part of the generative work I produced over the span of one year. Also include in the show is the 100 days of metal work (that was finished along side one painting a day and) that ultimately led to my diversion into metal sculpture.

One can visibly witness the progression from one day to the next as creative ideas live and evolve and circle back again and again over time. It is also not lost on me that it took all of this work to make it possible for me to open-up enough to begin exploring and producing personal, expressive sculpture work.

Show is on view through August 7, 2018 in the Benson Gallery.
