Ordinary Is a Mystery

Kongsak Kampakdee, Chatchapon Nantamanop, and Wantaya Thitipaisal

Date:

6 - 27 Jan 2024

Richard Koh Fine Art is proud to present an exhibition of contemporary paintings by three young artists with uniquely compelling concepts and styles. The group comprises Kongsak Kampakdee, Chatchapon Nantamanop, and Wantaya Thitipaisal.

The exhibition ‘Ordinary is a Mystery’ showcases the intriguing commonalities interwoven between the 3 artists to evoke certain feelings of being observed, leading to a distinctive emotions and interpretations based on each artist’s individual approach. In these paintings, viewers will sense an indescribable ambiguity through the strange and mysterious atmosphere embedded in portraits, landscapes, and even seemingly ordinary environments and activities, where the employed language and visual grammar are enigmatically both contradictory and cooperative.

Kongsak’s paintings explore ambiance and the interaction of elements in the images, creating an unusual feeling between people, places, and times. Chatchapon’s works engage with space and the fragments of relationships that arise from different places, objects, and feelings, producing a surreal-like effect that leads to emptiness and prompts more questions within the mind.

These works resonate with Wantaya’s diverse pieces, unveiling depictions with twisted connotations from inner states, resembling parallel images of reality and interpretation. The paintings of these three artists reflect the existence of doubt, wonder, and questioning of normality within the missing souls and the void of society, connecting us to the strange, and mysterious, and slow aspects that overlap with the mundane sceneries of our everyday lives.
