Karuna Panumes is one of the most sought after contemporary artists in SE Asia.

She is known for her self-portraits, always displaying the warm light of a late afternoon sun.  In every work, the shadowing on her face is changed due to different items being used.  Sometimes, the shadowing will be due to a Balinese hand puppet, other times the sun shining through a decaying leaf or material.  In this work, we can see the outline of a lace curtain shadowing on her face.

These are truly unique works and exceptionally beautiful.
