Personal Statement

The goal of provoking peoples’ thoughts through artwork has undoubtedly motivated me. Having a genuine interest in how art can influence actions, I aspire to create art that sinks into the deepest parts of one’s mind. My Psychology studies have given me a finer understanding of people as well as new perspectives on daily life. Incorporating my knowledge, the idea of schemas were an important aspect of my recent work where I played with how everyone has different preconceptions of the same objects.

I actively seek opportunities for viewing art whilst travelling, in addition to regularly visiting art galleries in Bangkok, such as the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre. A recent art workshop in Hong Kong further developed my understanding of contrasts in societies, such as how controversial pieces have greater acceptance in the West than in Asia. Also, by taking the opportunity to do a foundation in a new, culturally vibrant city such as London has opened me to experiences where I am constantly exchanging knowledge and information. Filled with exhibitions and galleries, I take advantage of that to explore art in so many ways I couldn’t back in Bangkok. For example, the “Everything At Once” exhibition. Ryoji Ikeda’s work was a completely new experience. I found myself submerged within the art piece, hearing the sounds and letting myself absorb the ambience. This gave me a new perspective on how to make art, and it is reflected in my recent work where I tried to capture the energy of different people and cultures that are walking within the highly driven environment of Central Saint Martins. I wanted to recreate a similar effect of reflecting a whole new place within a piece. In addition, my work ethics really came into play during the foundation course. I’m driven to create and I never saw the end of each project as “the end” as I always re-work into my pieces to see a variety of results. Reflecting on discussions within the studio and reading texts such as Robert Ryman's interview affected my way of working, as I've become more aware of the technical aspects of my work since I've learnt that everything counts as art, even the way it is installed. As a result the way that I work now is very experimental and it could be seen in recent works where I tried many mediums and surfaces that I’ve never used before for a “painting”. In a recent abstract piece, I used different ways of stitching, which led me to enjoy creating without thinking but ways of making instead.

I took the opportunity to work at PNS, a textile printing business in Bangkok. This showed me the scale of commercial textiles in fashion. But to further explore textiles within fine arts, I researched and met an eminent Thai artist, Jakkai Siributr who uses textiles. Through an interview with him, I gained a deeper understanding of the roles an artist has in the community, because of his willingness to explore difficult subject matter such as the exploitation of Buddhist beliefs for effect, which has seen him misunderstood and even attacked. However, misconceptions don’t affect him because “The importance is to give my own voice and opinion. The audience can agree or disagree, it doesn’t matter”. He had impacted me as an artist because I too hope to have such strength of mind, rejecting the notion of producing works to please, but finding expressing of my beliefs.

By completing DoE IA Bronze, especially its community service in caretaking and teaching children to swim, I have opened my view to other people’s living conditions, becoming more empathetic in the process. How the lives of others contrast with mine shows me how lucky I am, and my beliefs drove me to become a peer mentor to two students; they look up to me for guidance. With this in mind, I’ve grown as a person while feeling the need to fulfil each day with acts that will improve the quality of living for others, whether it is stimulating emotion through my art, or looking out for each other.
