Kwangkaew’s solo exhibition “A Symphony of Pauses” extends his previous concept about daily life to the one that places the objects in his daily life as the main characters in his compositions. Life can run by us in a blur as an abstract, an illusion, a fogginess. The pace with which we experience life will periodically pause when an image or object breaks the rhythm where everything else can fade away and time can seem to stop. Our nature draws us to aesthetics that possess the power to override the other stimuli and provide a reason for our vision to exist. The freezing of a moment is the ultimate wish of a dreamer. Our brains scramble to actively contain a fleeting experience, both in an urge to feel wholly that which excites us while also preserving an image which can sustain us. The unreliability we take from our broken attention is constant and only predicated on our tastes which we can anticipate but strangely continue to surprise us.
Our daily lives hide that which is important and great. Kwangkaew’s new series focuses on those ordinary things as time can changes rapidly before our eyes, quite often faster than we realize. The unspoken desire to stop the hands of the clock and savor all the moments would be desirable If we even knew which parts would be important to us in hindsight. His desire to be able to study each memorable moment in search of the answers to life is emphasized in the compositions he presents in this series. There are things that can change, growing with time and things that cannot be locked into a state of stability. A range of sounds and movements, reminiscent of a symphony. The visual world is ephemeral, the mental world is seemingly eternal. The symphony of the elements that combine to create our memories is timeless. The symphony is one that starts when we acknowledge that sentiment is welcome in our day to day activities. An image frozen can appear to manage conflicts that we notice can coexist in an interesting way.
