Artist Statement

I’m always thinking about how to personify the abstract identity and human nature both which are my major issues of recent creation. My painting is naturally based on people and things in the daily life of Taiwan, but in order to express the non-umbilical cord relationship between the cultural surface and human nature, I use a kind of approach of “juxtaposition” on my creation. Beside, believing the divinity within human spirit, I try to make my art language a kind of composition of Greek classicism and contemporary realism to create portrait-like paintings which, furthermore, might be an Inter-textual composition or simultaneous description of history, I think.
