Savanhdary Vongpoothorn is a painter and visual artist born in Laos and based in Australia. Her practice explores a diasporic identity, interweaving cultural and spiritual references and symbols, from Laotian textiles and Buddhists mandalas, to Aboriginal Art and Scottish Tartans.
"Footsteps to the Nigatsu-do" is a collaboration with poet and calligrapher Noriko Tanaka. Rubbings taken from the 53 step-stone stairway leading up to the Nigatsu-do hall reveal complex symbolic patterns, while Tanaka’s calligraphic rendering of her Tanka of Todai-ji and Vongpoothorn’s sutra fragments add to evocative meaning.
The scintillating repetition of the forms incised on the stone steps of the Nigatsu-do becomes a metaphor for immersion in a ceaseless search for enlightenment.
These rubbings were made using ink and fabric blotters on moistened sheets of handmade paper that the artist sourced from the renowned Fukunishi Washi Hanpo in Yoshino. Swipe right to see the process!
See this incredible installation in-person at Gajah Gallery Singapore! 'Shaping Geographies: Art | Woman | Southeast Asia' runs to 31 Dec 2019.

I know we said we didn’t want another “Basic Christmas...” but what if I told you I’m releasing an acoustic R&B version of my holiday EDM banger from last year?

So this happened last night 😁🎄 How did we go from “no we‘re not gonna have time to put up any tree” to 3 Xmas trees later?! 😅 So tired, but so rewarding when you see Reem’s face of joy 🥰 I’m gonna leave them all bare with no ornament this year. I think they’re still pretty as is ❤️ #christmasdecorations#foyerdecor#pregnantmama
