Pratuang Emjaroen

ประเทือง เอมเจริญ

My paintings portray all happening in the course of nature and the way of life; be it ugliness or horror, cruelty or love and care; be it joyous smiles or sad tears; be it trouble or peace. All of what one mustencounter in life --- my life, your life, anybody's life. It is a total revelation. If you can acknowledge happenings in your life, you can grasp the meaning of my works as easily as seeing and understanding what occurs to yourself both within and without.
