It’s still spring and opens with Beginnings!

The website features a selection of works under a chosen thematic every other season. For Spring 2009, we are looking at 27 works from the early part of the artist’s career. Apart from the curatorial essay, you can expect at least one article in Burmese each time – with its translation in English – that is available for download. It is hoped that the entries of varied length at depth will stimulate the beholder’s engagement with the works, not so much due to the value of the author’s opinions but the perspectives they hopefully open up.

The website is created for the purpose of generating exchanges and advancing the appreciation of if not scholarship on – Aung Soe’s art. If you have comments on ways of improving the website, or of taking the author’s examination and discussion of the artist further, that would be delightful.

Here at Bagyi Aung Soe’s Blog, meet to share thoughts on the artist’s work, participate in polls, or simply browse old photographs.

Bonne visite !
