  • About the artwork

    Here we see Pairoj at his best.

    Being profoundly influenced by the sculptures at Angkor Wat (Cambodia), Pairoj began to paint is figires as sculptures, with his unique textural and time consuming rendering of the surface of the skin to make it look as though it has been sculpted from stone.

    The title "Red Apsara" also comes from the Khmer language, the Apsaras' being the celestial maidens of the gods. Red Apsara is one of his major and finest pieces from this period when he first began to paint woks in this manner. The work is simply superb. The attention to detail and the overwhelming serenity of the figure makes this a stand-out painting.

    A masterwork from a truly gifted artist.
