AN ORIGINALVichit Nongnual has a knack for creating powerful artwork through his subject’s facial features. Such examples include the sharp outline of his subject’s noses’ and eyes, this style is made even more apparent with a pair of subjects as shown in his latest, ‘Duality’ piece.
CONTEXTVichit uses the human face as a canvas to interpret the inner workings of the mind. Seeking to expose what may be on the mind of his subject, their appearances are interrupted by symbols of meaning; clouds, text and smoke are cast across the facial landscapes.
A PRESENCEBringing the same meticulous technique and visceral, earthy mediums to his portraiture: the stark, serene, powerfully dignified paintings combine abstract and bricolage inflections with a presence.
