17 Apr Chatsayarot Inkupchan : Li(n)es Beneath
16 April 2018
The intention of Li(n)es Beneath, the young thai artist first solo exhibition, is to draw attention to what’s under the surface or inside the exterior…
LI(N)ES BENEATH is a new series of paintings by Chatsayarot Inkupchan, a young Thai female artist graduated from Naresuan University, Phitsanulok, whose concept and skills were developed throughout her attendance in Thaillywood Artist Residency in 2017.
Playing between “Lies” meaning deceive or conceal and “Lines” relating to her visual forms, as she employs “Optical Art”, a style of painting using lines as a main visual element for creating artworks. It corresponds with her concept to portray the delusion of humans’ emotions and the concealment of individuals’ feelings.
“This series started from my state of mind when I was stressed out by situations and surroundings from which I could not escape,” Chatsayarot explains, “I needed to confront them and conceal the actual feelings, however tense they may be. The use of fabrics tautly covering a person’s face became an archetype for creating a new series of oil paintings and a representation illustrating internal states of mind and individual’s feelings which sometimes we cannot perceive with bare eyes.”
