Phuket Art – an essential extravagance

PHUKET: Vibrant colours leaping from the canvas, enticing textures tempting you to touch them, subjects evolving as your perspective changes – Art Extravagant is a visual feast!

Wednesday 23 July 2014, 10:24AM


Presented by Oasis ed. Phuket, this new and original exhibition of artworks by German artist, Barbara Stoebel, is sure to appeal to and perhaps also challenge viewers. Weaving together abstract symbolism and purely graphic forms, Barbara’s art is full of surprises.

An established artist, with exhibitions world-wide, Barbara approaches each new canvas as a journey, discovering new paths to explore, mediums to experiment with and concepts to traipse over. The artworks evolve during the journey, culminating in ideas that come to life and grow with each step.

Incorporating a wide range of materials (paper, sand, driftwood, gypsum, flour, acrylic, grout and fabric), her “paintings” are highly textured and burst with 3D life from the bounds of their framed canvases. The arrangement of textures, lines, shapes and colours display her inquisitive creativity, as she plays with the different materials. The result? Simply spectacular!

Barbara appreciates art as having the unique position of being both an extravagance and a necessity in life – perceived as an extravagance in the time and money it can take to participate or invest in art, yet essential for what it gives to our lives. Children need art and craft to develop their creativity, imaginations and motor skills. As adults it provides us with challenges or peace, provokes us to question ourselves and reminds us to play like kids again.

Knowing the great importance of art in the lives of young people, Barbara has kindly donated her painting “Rocking Bird” to the Phuket Has Been Good to Us Foundation, for display in their kindergarten. Oasis ed. Phuket & The Book Cafe will also be donating art supplies to the PHBGTU Foundation and welcome contributions from the community to add to this.

The Grumpy Panda Community Art Space is located in the Book Cafe, Rawai. For more information about this event or the Art Space, please contact Kez via kez@oasisedphuket.com or 0849462171 or visit
