This latest collection has brought forth the
problem of our society at night , with it's glittering lights from the
pubs, bars and other entertainment complexes with dim lights, cigarette
smoke. A time with lady singers servicing their guests, alluring, and
seductive. Their bodies wrapped with clothes that show their flesh in
most parts, painted faces bright color lips like some "angel"
within the embraces of the patrons of the establishments.
The value of art is not just derived from it's
elaborate beauty of shapes and colors, but it should also reflect therealities
of life and society.
Therefore art must communicate the essence of the message to the viewers
perhaps by using symbols like
Ladies : With their beautiful alluring, seductive looks but at the
same time terrifying and dangerous.
Flamingo plant : Signifying men or the male gender
Orchids: as a symbol of the ladies or female
Giants : In the story the giant is the villain or the "bad guy",
cruel and terrible.
And as it is a well know fact that giants are always men with an evil
intention, taking advantage of the females.
In our current Thai society, both the government and the private sector
has tried to campaign for warm and loving families, and for young ladies
to "keep themselves innocent" before the suitable age.
But there was a recent survey regarding Valentines day and Loy Krathong,
and the result was that Loy Krathong is the day when first sexual encounters
happen most, followed closely by Valentine's day.
A day for sex and lust such as the likes of giants, kissing, groping,
fondling without shame or conscience of what is right or wrong, ignorant
of any ethics.
