THE JOURNEY


It is not just a portfolio, rather, it is more like a reminiscence full of stories I desire to share with you. Evert time when I am drawing, it is the most relaxing momment I appreciate to obtain and own. I pursue the expression of my innermost feelings and spiritual realm. I think painting and writing are two different methods when employed to express these sensations.

FINAL ARTWORK

MEMORY OF TAO HUA YUAN


MEMORY OF TAO HUA YUAN TAO HUA YUAN is a special and mysterious place in a well-known ancient poem. The story is about a man who finds a place where people do not have contact with the outside world. By living there, they can keep away from wars and clamor (seems like Utopia). So does my painting, I want to deliver the joy without people thinking too much when watching it and finding some details on it. The special place is that I utilize the principles of kaleidoscopes to transform the shapes of flowers. It constructs a mysterious and fascinating atmosphere of my painting.

FINAL ARTWORK

TIME TUNNEL / PHAPSODY OF FLOWERS


The years represented by these paintings each refer to a special and delicate time in my life. 1997 I was born 2015 I was accepted into NTUA as a college freshman 2017 I said goodbye to a dear friend shortly after meeting her 2018 These paintings were created These have been wonderful and significant momments in my life that have made normal and mundane days into interesting and special ones. I have used a variety of colorful acrylic resin to illustrate these momments-they have their similarities but each of them is a little different than the other.( After interacting, they still belong to themselves, each time is the most special one.)

To depict and illustrate the flower's flow and rhythm, I utilize a different way to display. I try to observe the change and veined pattern when adding ink into water. Thereafter, I print these water marks out to be my artwork's background. Interestingly, when these marks integrate with the flower's lines I have drawn, they become delicate, sophisticated and graceful.

BOUNIFUL FEAST

2017 ink watercolor rice paper 120 x 120 cm 43


The art form of seal carving has a histiory of more than four thousand years in Eastern culture. Traditionally, they incorporate the functions of utility, decoration and expression. For me, I would like to make a breakthrough in some parts of traditional limitations. Thus, I use laser engraving to create my wood stamps but keep traditional calligraphy on it to arrange and express the whole space. Every stamp represents a country or a city I have visited before. They gather together with a new poem of my creation below and become an unique travel map.

This is a song about a girl's love letter, and the content conveys the sense of missing someone she really loves. Meanwhile, I deeply fall in love with this graceful song. I try to feel the similar atmosphere that the singer wants to transmit by listening the song at the same time. And then, I evoke my own memories and express them when I write down these lyrics sorrowfully and yet sincerely.

I want to create a new calligraphy work for my father to acknowledge everything he has done for me. I try to find out an ancient poem to write down and the content illustrates a man who has strong will to struggle for his work and life. That is all I want to praise my conscientious, hardworking and wise father in my mind. I think it can be more meaningful and suitable as a present.


MIND

draft

Mineral pigment is a popular art medium since the early stage in Chinese art history. In Taiwan, we refer to paintings that use colors mixed with gelatin, clay or metal. It can display more colorful, experimental and modern media. That is why I try to utilize this material to find some unpredictable flow in my painting.
