A life lived in abstract
Mom Tri’s VR Gallery’s artist in residence Chris De Meo will be showcasing his first solo exhibition My Abstract Life from June 11 – July 11.
Monday 11 June 2012, 11:14AM
Mr De Meo is a relative newcomer to both Phuket and art. He began painting in 2010, when he moved to the island and decided follow his ‘true passion’. Originally from Fremantle in Western Australia, he moved to Phuket to follow his creative calling. Since arriving, he has completed more than 40 works.
The exhibit features predominately large abstract works. Each creation comes from one of De Meo’s experiences or a particular point of view he has. “I store these feelings and when the time is right I tap into them and transfer them to canvas,” he says.
“Colours and emotions drive the work, yet what the artist sees and the viewer interprets will be very different. The painting becomes their own individual reality”.
Chris offers up his very personal stories and paintings to visitors from now, until next month. VR Gallery is the successor to the mini gallery that had previously existed at Mom Tri’s Boathouse for many years. It has long-served as a venue for local and visiting artists.
The VR Gallery, Golden Elephant Boutique and Sunshine Coffee Shop are all located adjacent to Mom Tri’s Villa Royale at the entrance of the Baan Kata Estate. VR Gallery, 12 Kata Noi Road, Kata Noi, 076-333-568, email@example.com; momtriphuket.com
