The paintings Chiaravanont creates repeatedly drift in and out between abstraction and figuration. Through this repetition, the paintings are able to open up themselves to suggest endless visual possibilities. Subsequently, the awkwardly playful imagery invokes a sensually warmth relationship with the audience.
The paintings activity becomes a necessity, something that we do everyday like brushing our teeth or taking shower. The key to effectively archive this is to change the motivation that determined the decision-making process that would take the practice beyond the art of painting into the art of the everyday life, which will then be put back into a contemporary gallery environment.
It is important for paintings to maintain their freshness, which can be felt by the absent of premeditated plan. The paintings contain both success and failure, and therefore represent the artist himself, not what his perception of how painting should be.
