The essence of Chaki’s work has been described as a collision of the outside world with the artist’s innermost visceral perceptions. His most recent work: landscapes and still-life’s, are created by selecting and assembling commonly known elements of nature so as to present us with a newly ordered vision of the world. Although no element in his artworks can be traced to actual places and plants, he presents us with a believable reality yet entirely of his own making. The essence of the painting is to be found in their execution. Shapes are defined by forceful lines or clashes of colour, distance is conveyed by subtle shadings contrasting with brutal overlaps, light and mood proceed from chromatic interplays laced with telling brushwork.
