I always think of painting as paint or thing on the surface. So my work is about a question of what is paint and what is a surface. What is different between them. And how to blend this. My work has nothing to do with the conceptual or emotional idea. It is only about painting itself.
Then for me, the word re-see is something you need to apply to see painting nowadays. Because contemporary art trend to build on an external art world idea. But painting is a standstill since modern art. So, in my opinion, we as a painter should focus on what going on in the painting and that will be the way to connect the standstill painting to the present art world. — Ruthorn Rujianurak
