Death is not the end but a new beginning. Death is not a result of life's frustrations, but a transition from this life into the next. From mortality into immortality.

This solo exhibition by Pimpisa Tinpalit is a philosophical study of how all metaphysical conditions co-exist. Death can provide insight into how we understand and appreciate life. ‘Silence #1.6.1’ heals those who regard death as the unlovable sting. ‘Silence #1.6.1’ is an innovative and engaging piece, playing on form and meaning. It borrows from mythical ideas and local iconography but uses everyday materials to be accessible.

It is the artist's hope that her work can lead to small or large changes in attitude regarding ideas about death.
