Nice and Naughty (2008) , No Space Gallery

In her first solo show, Orn brings together large paintings, tiny drawings, words made from masking tape, bold type, cartoon-ish characters and a pop palette of colours to occupy the gallery space. From the large acrylic panels to smaller drawings, to audacious writings on the wall, what this early body of work showed was Orn’s concern with ordinary everyday details and feelings. Words and characters that would find leading roles in her work.
