Life is a long trajectory. There are ups and downs in life, and there is a beginning and an end to everything. The same is also true of our Earth; it conceives all life but also unleashes disasters. Where there is sun, shadow follows. Just like there are two sides to a coin, the interdependence, interactions and the give-and-take relationships between Earth, disasters and humans are complicated, difficult to be described with simple definitions, to distinguish what is right and wrong or to decide who should be accountable for what happened. The researcher wonders if there is any common ground between art and disaster. He realized that there had not been a systematic research or organized related data and discourse on disaster. By conducting this research and creating the collection, he wishes to offer a new representation of disaster and extract enlightening values from it.
Disaster is Pandora s Box, only capable for inflicting pains; or so it seems. During the course of the research and in literature review, the researcher found that disaster actually possesses hidden elements that can enrich art and creativity. The key elements extracted from disaster are: terrifying atmosphere, twisted lines, eerie colors and unswerving humanity. These elements are further divided into four categories: belonging to nature, man-made, objective and unknown. Through painting, the researcher integrates his findings from the analysis of disaster aesthetics and his own understanding about the theme to deliver a mysterious and unique representation of disaster in his collection, in four sub-series titled firmament , humans , objects and mystery .
In the process of this research and in creating the collection, the researcher found that he true aesthetic values of disaster art lie in salvation of disaster and the power of soul . He hopes that, by integrating his own appreciation for disaster aesthetics and his disaster art collection, he can shed new lights on the topic and inspire the minds and souls of audiences, and help them see the love and compassion we need to show for the environment, creatures and people suffering from disasters. And through this research, he wishes to make some contributions for the creatures on this planet and to highlight the values and wisdom manifested in suffering caused by disasters.
