VIPOO SRIVILASA
"Deity"

Deity is a collaborative project between collector Subhashok Angsuvarnsiri and artist Vipoo Srivilasa. Their partnership began when Srivilasa was introduced to Mr Angsuvarnsiri’s private collection. One particular object captured Srivilasa imagination; an antique painter’s frame detailed intricately with wood carvings. The frame is hand carved with delicate flower patterns and is often used to hold religious paintings atop its altar.
 
Based on the original purpose of the frame, Srivilasa created 7 enigmatic and unspecified deities that merge within them. Each was uniquely designed to fit within the wooden framed shrine made by Mr Angsuvarnsiri’s team. The frame was adjusted to accommodate 3D aspects of ceramic sculptures and become an elaborate stage for each of Srivilasa’s Deities.
