In the past few decades, Kma Sirisamphan has constantly spoken to himself through his works, transforming his feelings for everything into his creative energy for each artwork. The whole series is from his own and others’ life experience, pulling from his perceptions of dealing with growth, success and failure, seeking for the value of life. All the pieces express not only the full range of his cheeky and intellectually subtle language of sculpture but also show his wonderful outlook on creating in life.
Born in 1966, Kma Sirisamphan graduated from Silpakorn University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts in 1992. After receiving his degree he had one group thesis exhibition, and joined the 37th National Exhibition of Art, then shifted to start to work with his own business as an event organizing company that used art as a key tool.
Throughout his series, Kma Sirisamphan has shone a spotlight on the curvature of the sculptures. The form of the muscles exhibits an emotional force. The attention to detail establishes a middle ground where abstract meets realism. The focus is on the lines of the muscles and the colors used are natural. Karma appears in various narratives that he is weaving throughout the exhibition; ranging from love to sadness. These emotional stories not only today awaken feelings of sympathy and sorrow in the audience but also are responsible for awakening his period of dormant creativity. Had he not experienced the trials and tribulations of his former career, there may not have been the urge to reawake his artistic nature. The inspiration of his perseverance comes through in his sculptures and it encourages us to keep going through the hurdles of life while building a mindful position on the meaning of it all.
“In my opinion, there is the responsibility as the artist to not only create aesthetic works but to also remind people to be mindful through my works.” by sharing this experience, Kma Sirisamphan encourages the public to contemplate their own life experiences.
