A Retrospective Exhibition “Abstract: The Truth of Art” Ithipol Thangchalok

Nearly 100 pieces including the former works and the ones that are never exhibited are the works from ever period during 50 years of creation of Ithipol Thangchalok who, among few Thai Contemporary artists, intently and determinedly persists in following the path of abstract art.
The path of Ithipol’s creation began with printing techniques that he practiced in his undergraduate years. When he pursued his master degree in the United States, he was officially acquainted of abstract art and realized that his practice could harmoniously get together with the philosophy of abstract art. By the end of 70s, abstract art in Thailand was losing its popularity and his fellow artists advised him to shift his praxis, Ithipol firmly insisted that “Abstract art always works for me.”
Because of his unchanging and serene path of creativity, Ithipol discovers the "truth" of art in many aspects. Finally it is all about his faith in the simplicity of abstract art, which allows the artist’s mind to truly discover the "truth" of art.
