La Lanta Fine Art presents ‘‘Circus’’, a new painting exhibition by a Dallas-based artist Michele Mikesell. The title of the show is inspired by a quote from American writer and poet Charles Bukowski: ‘‘We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorised and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.’’ In this exhibition, Mikesell presents her new technique incorporating brushing, wiping, scraping and sanding paint, resulting in beautifully textured surfaces that add depth and personality to her characters. Mikesell sees humanity in what some would say are dark places. She believes these places are where we draw our strength and creativity. She portrays what she sees in the human condition: strength, bravery, solitude and isolation. Her paintings are about the universal human experience. Circus will be on display at La Lanta Fine Art from Aug 31 to Sept 26. The gallery is located on Sukhumvit Soi 31 and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 7pm. Call 02-204-0583 or 02-260-5381.
