Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The reference of this artwork comes from "Galatea Riding a Dolphin" (1880) created by Leopoldo Ansiglioni (1832 - 1894). This work refers to the desire of controlling or harmoniously living with nature, regarding to adding artificial elelments such as plastic colour and texture to rnfer the utopian world we huamn are continuing creating . War was a behavior for humans to reconstruct and revolutionize for their idealized world. After WWII, we as the Generation of Hope living in a social phenomenon full of harmony, hope, pleasure, and desire. The Generation of Hope series depict the post-utopian world created by humans, and each subject was referenced classic Western paintings to indicate the influences under the European hegemony. People seem to be living under a war-less wonderland, however, the truth is covered with hypocritical lies. The paintings ironically disregard the reality of corruption and erosion with hedonism.
