Each researcher (artist) creates 2 or 3 dimensional contemporary artworks that develop the concept from study and interpretation of Buddhist principal, philosophy and belief. Communicating through images and symbolic, the work conveys audiences to appreciate the context and relationship between Buddhist Dharma, nature, and modern materials. The idea is to analyze and synthesize how art, culture, and philosophy are rapidly changing and giving out influences among each other by using various media and materials that are assembled to produce the creations of paintings, sculptures, mixed media arts, and installation arts. The aim of the project is to pass on Buddhist teaching to people that will lead to the creation of more love and faith in today’s society.
Art helps generate the intellectual foundation for the life of local people, including all the working class and other classes in the society. Traditional artifacts and culture remind people the local knowledge and wisdom. They are developed to create contemporary art which is represented to the public in both national and international venues. The research project titled “A Study of Buddhist Philosophy and the Creativity in Contemporary Art” establishes space for education and exchanging of ideas between critics, thinkers, philosophers, artists and people. The project also connects religion to variety groups of people in many different generations, including the older generations who have great believe in Buddhism and the younger generations who prefer to develop the content of Buddhism in order to fit it into today’s way of living.
