Tosachat Eclectic was developed from Utarit’s previous Déjà vu series on woodblock. These woodblock prints are related to the Lord Buddha, Buddhism and the Western World. Therefore, the inclusion of these 10 woodblock prints in the Déjà vu series are presented.
Tosachat can be defined as the name given from the scriptures in Buddhism. Those scriptures are mainly depictions of the story of the Lord Buddha, who was once still a “Bodhisattva” for ten incarnations before becoming fully “Enlightened” and lastly succeeding as the “Lord Buddha”. There are 10 main factors that are related to things such as good morals which are considered a prestige component. With these traits, it can transform a normal individual into a “noble individual.” This is an important part of the “Buddhism Concept”. Tosachat can also be classified as a form of literature. It can be seen as “A Story Telling”, “Have its own sources and background”, and “have its conclusion per each chapter”. It is considered an ancient tradition here. Moreover, even though Tosachat are mainly classified as Buddhism Scriptures form only, the concept is also perceived in other areas as well. Its concept can act as a newer point of view, whether it is in the context of “society”, “culture”, “traditional areas” and lastly “political factors”.
With this mixed concept, this series of artwork can be seen in a more contemporary context. A newer image with a blend of diversity and chaos. All those images come from different sources, which passed through the process of being reproduced, added info, and modified from their original picture. Hence, resulted in Tosachat’s characteristics in context and presentation being changed from its original sources. These can be conflict & harmony, Eastern & Western, Old and New, Traditional & Contemporary, and Philosophy & Absurdity.
