Me at an art exhibition Somebody comes to me and asks me: “ Are you an artist ? ” I say: YES Than asks me: “ Are you looking for the truth in art ? ” My answer: I don’t think that there is a truth in art ! Every artist has it’s own ideea in art. The image of an object is the object itself ? Could this be the truth in art ? If we find the truth in art we will stop searching and if we stop searching, we’ll begin to create a boring art. This is why in order to avoid boring ourselves, we have to be in a continuos search. Could this be the truth in art ? As an artist, I must give the mind the possibility to create art and you as a viewer, to discover and understand the artist and his art. What are YOU looking for ? This is a question that each of us asks in time. If I would create the composition with objects and buildings, I would situate the character in a certain time context. The lack of objects and background in my works represents the character in a timeless context.
Chai South first art is its own truth when art loses its truth it becomes nothing. We as artist paint and/or draw our own truths. What drew me to his piece was the lone figure appearing to be observing something in another dimension or place and then after reading your words I saw a bit of my own truth. love the commentary also!!! wish more artist wrote more about their work.
