Morakot Ketklao is a Chiang Mai-based Artist.
Ketklao’s work explores connections between the personal and the shared experience of global climate change. She relates her everyday observations of her immediate environment nuances. Her body of work combines landscape elements with structural geometry to create fractured architectural landscapes that explore the ever-encroaching presence of humanity in life. She has developed an emotive visual language that expresses her concerns about the loss of the natural world while exploring themes of compassion, empathy, and friendship, all united by our collective mourning of nature in the Anthropocene age.
