Her first-ever show in Bangkok, Camilla Engström is a Swedish-born artist whose works serve mostly as her autobiographical depictions. ‘Undercurrents’ features 16 paintings that capture the transformation beneath the earth’s surface and the human bodies in the times of perceived stillness. Through humour, surrealistic landscapes, and figurative expression, her works usually exhibit distinct themes, among the ‘season’ — vivid and cheerful in the summer and hibernated in the winter.

‘Undercurrents’ is on show at Over the Influence Bangkok until January 6, 2023. Find out more via the website.
