Nawin by himself
Before I start to create a painting, I always figure and imagine a human image as I am interested in personalities, behaviors, and habits of people in societies. Thus, when I feel the reciprocate, it enhances my desire to draw a man to portray and express my personal concepts and feelings.
According to my belief, once you are one of the society, you need to interact and gain experiences from the surroundings. Things we are able to see from the outside with our own eyes are appearances, status careers and dressing styles which are external interaction allowing us to know one another. With the time passes by, we have to communicate, understand, convey and exchange each other the feelings and thoughts we want to express. Some make us feel the affection. Some make us feel the hatred or passion. As a result, our internal emotions, thus, have to protect or battle against those outsides and search for what satisfies our feelings. Sometimes, what we have to fight is ourselves. And whenever passion, greed, anger and love inside us are unevenly out of control, those feelings would turn into deadly weapons and harm us instead. Thoughts, emotions, feelings or even instincts, conscious and unconscious minds are invisible but can be recognized by perception. They are so well-hidden in human body that sometimes one almost cannot easily comprehend. These are the abstract essence I want to convey through my painting to tell the stories and contents of human’s lives by using human body’s images, body languages and relevant contextual symbols reflecting his/her or my own emotion and feelings and to create the connection to the dimension of those abstract feelings.
The stories of “Women” are always brought to my paintings especially during the beginning of my career as an artist. I straightforwardly conveyed the story and content from the scene I saw, in a corner of the City at night, of the prostitutes earning their lives. The place seen form the outside was just fully decorative with dazzling lights, curiously luring people to get in. But the inside, which was a dim place altogether with such women’s lives, were just completely contradictory. I was curious to notice the ways they dressed themselves up with colorful outfits yet their feelings were just the other way round, filling with the stories of their lives which are kept shut in the dark.
My paintings which present the naked women reflecting the passion inside of human. The word “Chimplee originally means the paradise where dwelled Paya krut who kidnapped Nang KaKee and had sex with her. This later contributed to a metaphorical meaning of “Chimplee Heaven” that it is a heaven which is full of illusionary happiness of lust and passion hidden deeply in the dark side of mind. However, those are revealed in the forms of affection, desire, passion of beauty and sex, causing one to create the illusion to satisfy the feelings of happiness and satisfaction in the mind, letting it conjure the self-created illusory heaven. However, the unnecessarily excessive admiration to the beauty or being lured into illusory beauty may change the feeling into obsession that causes at last sorrow and misery right at your own heaven.
