Official description

"Constant Uncertainty", an exhibition of abstract paintings by Angkrit Ajchariyasophon, an artist and gallery owner based in Chiang Rai, will go on display at 338 Oida Gallery.

His new works on canvas and paper reflect the constant uncertainty experienced by all living things.

With the human lifespan now averaging 70 years, and our planet existing for more than 4.5 billion years, it is in this limited timescale of human life that we have learned to live with rapid changes.

Knowing this lets us accept that nothing actually belongs to us, or is ever permanent.

Our greatest fears are loss, separation and death _ each is only a natural process of life.

The state of abstraction surpasses the confinements of self, excelling beyond logic _ beyond thoughts.

The practise of painting does not allow one to enter this state. However, the gesture of time spent in the creation process of painting does express the commitment without having to materialise the action, relating it to the abstract concept.

Constant Uncertainty can be viewed at 338 Oida Gallery until Feb 28. The gallery is located on the fourth floor of the Pongamorn Building on Rama IV Road and is open daily, except Mondays and Tuesdays, from 1pm to 5pm. Call 090-198-8749.
