About Nuttaphol Ma
Nuttaphol Ma's relentless process of peeling away, supported by endless, patient observation, forms the basis of his artistic discipline. He examines patterns and sequences, which present themselves as strings of events, recurring found shapes and numbers. The artist records these dialogues through photography, performances, video and text. Ma’s current site-specific sculptural works map the artist’s abstraction of how he weaves between dreams of leaving and dreams of roots; between past and present; between longing and not Be longing.
