Having worked minutely in an abstract art wich draws from the cubism and which inspires the Buddism, the artist Kasem Khaolao experiments one action painting inspired by the Asian calligraphy of which the dominant color is the black broken by the red color, as warm color expressing the violence.
A linen series who are triangular, rectangular, diametric, triptych and quadriptych… question to the human condition namely the fragility of the human being, the being and the nothingness, the harmony and the violence, the fate of the man and the chaos. So many plastic themes which draw from a philosophy of sense. In this context, Kasem Khaolao delivers us its impressions : « In my work, I use my imagination to express the relationship bound by the mind as the universe that can be the mind connected to the universe that can be found in every single unit of life on the planet. » A universal and transcendental mind, monad way of the philosopher Leibniz.
A old village at the summit of a rocky montain populated with wild vegetation, and the river puts a series of spectacular waterfalls. In the vestiges of an old temple, a walker in search of the human nature, by referring Buddha’s precepts, contemplate the very depths of the darkness in the deepest of the solitudes.
Kasem told us : « My work is created with wishes that my personal thoughts and feelings are easily acknowledged by sight and imagination. The combination of artistic aesthetics, which are either complicated or simple, as far as the subject matter is concerned, is my portrayal. For me painting is quite powerful and captures meaning that is quite close to my thoughts of mind and spirit .Consequently, it is what I can do much better than any other thing. It is a self-developed feeling. »
Under the silvery and bright beams of the full moon and which penetrate into a cloud deck, broken branches of the mixed araucarias and which announce a Thai revival of the Tradition of the forest.
A desire to realize, in its body and in its spirit, the peace of mind and the wisdom of Dhamma.
