Olarn Chiaravanont, At the end of the day / 2013 / Acrylic & oil on canvas / 130x110cm
Chiaravanont's paintings are characterised by lightness and reduced clarity: circular and organic forms as well as drippings float in space weightlessly. They seem almost na´ve but are, in fact, precisely calculated; every painterly decision is meticulously conceived and apodictically implemented. The result is an elemental, primary language of forms, which confidently moves between the worlds, eluding definitive cultural or art historical categorisation. Along the path from the Modernism of the mid-20th century to today's postmodernism Chiaravanont finds an individual present in the alloy of all kinds of influences.
