Koi Art Gallery is proud to present “Post Human” art exhibition to be held from December 13, 2013 - January 26, 2014. This exhibition showcases the latest artworks by Chatchawan Nilsakul.
“Post Human” is a solo exhibition of latest artworks by Chatchawan Nilsakul, a talented artist and reputed Fine Art professor at the prestigious Chiang Mai University. In this exhibition, he takes on a unique approach of comparing contemporary human figure and form to architectural composition.
The artist views the evolution of the physical human body as a reflection of its historical aspects, which further expresses the terrain of its contemporary times. He explores the further development of society, era and atmosphere of its time through the form of the human body.
The acrylic on canvas works have a unique composition to them – from different angles, different components of the painting can be viewed simultaneously by the viewer. In effect, a change in perspective takes place in the eye of the beholder – exposing the results of the artist’s layered technique. His use of metallic colors and layers on his figurative models carves out a phenomenal, harmonious landscape.
Professor Chatchawan further showcases the contemporary human form through layers of acrylic and metallic colors that overlap, much like the complex society we live in today. He explains “when you see a human body on a big scale, some part of the body looks like that of a stone, or becomes a part of a sculptural building.” The body as an object speaks to viewers as an abstract element – both visually and conceptually. It serves as a space that defines our human environment and existence.
