Ithipol Thangchalok “Abstract: The Truth of Art”

     The exhibition presents the works that Ithipol has created since he was an undergraduate and graduate student. The show includes pieces from his very first solo exhibition "Recent Paintings" (1991) and many following exhibitions which are “The Color of Light" (2002), "Matter of Mind" (2004), "Primal Spirit" (2006), Intuition and Intellect" (2008), and "Alphabet" (2013). The exhibition also features the very recent collection "The Journey of Parkinson Lines" (2014-2015).
 
      The path of his creation began with printing techniques that he practiced in his early years at Faculty Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts, Silpakorn University. In those days, Ithipol did not yet officially have knowledge of abstract art. Four major techniques he studied consisted of silkscreen, etching, woodcut, and lithograph. All these techniques were incorporated into different themes that include organic form of seeds, trees in a city, wall, and human figure and space. Ithipol gradually made these representational forms to be abstract ones. A seed that was once recognizable became a geometric figure. A large bush became a group of lines that freely ran. A human figure was turned into slices of geometric forms. These basic printing techniques later led him to discover particular techniques that resulted in the content of his work.
