Totos solo exhibition Katika Krachaisri

Inspiration

The Paintings are always about creation and human nature, as seen in Buddhist folklore, complex stories and fables being told in extremely simple, almost primitive symbols and paintings.

There is also influence from different arts forms, Asian batik textile, Australian aboriginal artwork, and up to Tibetan mandalas and Chinese demons and angels’ paintings. There is also some influence from early European art and even modern painters like Kandinsky which make the visual aspect
more articulate and dominant. The paintings always have turbulence and movement, which grows almost organically on the canvas.

Techniques and special methods

Ink, Acrylic color and mixed media like adding readymade fabrics or beads to the canvases. These are all just different ways to get the desired final result.

Benefit

You can find the truth of life in these Buddhist stories which is like a secret image that is under our nose but we still cannot see. There is no real message in the work, as it is more a visual emotional reference that is supposed to speak to each person on a very personal plane, and one of the interesting things about these art works is that because they are so loaded and entangled in imagery, people have the opportunity to focus on the parts that "call" them, and dive into them in a personal visual journey.
