80 YEARS KAMOL TASSANANCHALEE : RETROSPECTIVE

Date:

19 Jan - 19 Feb 2024

MATDOT Art Center celebrates the 80th anniversary of the artistic journey of Kamol Tassananchalee. For the exhibition at MATDOT Art Center, visitors are taken back to the time before Kamol was honored as the artist of the two worlds. In 1975, Kamol used the vast expanse of Mohave Desert sand and the whole blue sky as a canvas. He arranged many gigantic three-dimensional color tubes at various points before allowing the natural wind to disperse the color powder across the desert. The result is a captivating image of vibrant lines on the sandy landscape.

This artwork marks the beginning of Kamol's exploration into the creation of art related to "color tubes," leading to numerous experiments and innovations in the field of printmaking. Subsequently, he developed various forms of mixed media artworks. In terms of conceptual thinking, Kamol intertwines stories related to Buddhist philosophy, as well as the way of life and local wisdom of the East, with contemporary knowledge and artistic innovations from the Western world. Through his art, he eloquently narrates a thoughtful exploration of ideas
