“Corpse Smile” the solo exhibition by Arnont Lertpullpol, presenting oil painting with the canvas that has repeated brush lines rapidly or emphasized an empty space with vivid colors in order to create the surface, rymthm and a variety in techniques that indicates emotion. Hence this time the artist heightened the design of processes which are orderly organized and repetitious; patching and combining as it was a replicated artwork and to be representative as the meaning of military and recurrent effects from wars. With an analysis of particular circumstances in activities, behavior or visibly physical characters for instance to be under control to attack, shoot, retract and stop, to have regulations and discipline etc. to form a technique and a type of production to be effective in a particular procedure of repetition which had been executed over and over again by amounts, the same initial and final processes; not to be out of the box or manage to unfollow a fixed procedure. Using a condition of painting processes to control an expression as it is an essential matter to convey the meaning than explaining with a situation or an outcome from a complete truth in order to transfer a state of fearfulness to be on the work as if it was a feeling of being attacked by an army in front of us and intimidated our lives.
