I feel there is no limit or boundary to what can be made beautiful through art. The value of art can only be found in the experience of each person of each work. No rules or theories can restrict a work of art. Art is not created by just following theory - this produces only imitative work. An artist must go beyond understanding basic theories and understand how to create art while knowing that art presents no restriction about what can be made beautiful. Humans and nature naturally exist together, but humans create rules and theories that shape society in ways that are in conflict with this natural relationship. In Thailand today, many follow the rules, laws, cultures, and tastes of society without thinking. But for most of them, and for me, life that has to belived in side the limitations of Thai society's systems and rules is a constant struggle for survival. I reject the pain and suffering that I must undergo to live, and I create shapes that acknowledge my sense of conflict and express my rejection.
