Please Stay and Focus presents a series of paintings by Karn Karnjanamai - an artist who relocated from Thailand to Germany. This is informed by the artist’s experience while he tried to adapt to a new environment, new people and new languages in another land. These works explore intense emotional states of artists, while he was studying German languages. He found it difficult and painful to focus on taking the German language exam. Working on painting as a starting point, holding various gestures, centering composition - the series of paintings explores the lens of personal experience and emotive perception. By drawing upon wide ranging experiences of vulnerability - the artist uses a form of figure to reflect on the uncertainty of his emotion. This show understands the need to find ways to express and live differently, and this could be more relevant to a conversation that connects to those who have encountered the same situation.
