Who’s Cutting Onions

Tum Ulit

Date:

13 Jul - 25 Aug 2024

River City Bangkok proudly presents “Who’s Cutting Onions”, the debut solo exhibition by Tum Ulit, an artist, cartoonist, and storyteller who captures loneliness, sorrow, and profound emotions through his poignant illustrations that speak directly to the hearts of millions worldwide.

‘Who’s cutting onions?’ originates from an idiom we often use in delicate moments, where articulating our true sentiments proves challenging. It encapsulates those times when our hearts yearn to shield the profound reasons behind teats too agonizing to comfort. Vulnerability becomes the final frontier we hesitate to unveil. In such moments, we seek solace in whimsical excuses, suggesting that these tears stem not from the sorrow within our souls, but from the overpowering presence of unseen onions.

In his quest to convey these nuanced feelings, Tum Ulit has fashioned a realm akin to delicate layers of an onion’s petals. Within this realm lies a tapestry rich with intricate and tender emotions, inviting exploration layer by layer. Much like peeling deeper into the onion intensifies its essence, delving into this world unveils raw and tumultuous emotions, stirring tears that may need to be shed.

Tum Ulit warmly invites viewers to explore the depths of their hearts and shed tears together, for he believes that behind every teardrop lies a reason. Inspired by reminiscence, loss, growth, love, hope, and even dreams, these emotions resonate through over 30 artworks crafted from the artist’s imagination, interpretation, and profound feelings.
