Main Article Content

Jiamchan Chankhonghom


This article aims to study and analyze natural phenomenon of Songkhla Lake in the perspective of natural environment and arts in order to synthesize as a fine art and demonstrate the process of generating academic knowledge. The findings of the study are: 1. The natural perspective of Songkhla Lake’ s phenomenon from the upper, middle, and lower watershed had three cultural characteristics, namely, freshwater, brackish water, and sea water. This consequence came from ecological environment influencing people’ s mindset on the multicultural arts. 2. The factors of natural, human, and cultural dimensions had an effect on the creation of western and eastern arts expressing the contents of the paintings. 3. The synthesis of style information consisted of two concepts: Objectivism and Subjectivism. First, the Objectivism consisted of Naturalism that expressed the natural phenomenon over human, culture and of Realism that human created under natural dimension. Secondly, the Subjectivism consisted of Romanticism showing the paintings with emotions, natural phenomenon’s power and of Idealism and Conventionalism focusing on the virtue and moral standard. The results were, then, synthesized to create the holistic knowledge by creative practice, adaptive experiment, enhancement, and problem solving of aesthetic meanings to represent the cultural characteristic in a new context.
