March 11–April 30
The mixed media works of Thidarat Chantachua aim to bridge together the different cultures in this borderless world despite differences in the people’s beliefs—bringing forward the artist’s ideology in a contemporary and universal language. The artist’s semi-abstract works take visual cues and foundations from Arabic arts that are closely linked to Islam, which is also the artist’s religion. Islamic art is often characterized by its geometrical patterns (its fundamental concept of Tawhid), monotheism or oneness, and Mizon uniformity and harmony. This ancient philosophy of art is brought closer to contemporary audiences through the artist’s interpretation.
