Artist Statement

--- KAOHSIUNG paintings

It has the important aspect for me to walk and take photos in order to “touch the boundary” between inner myself and the outer world. My work starts from this point primitively, speaking of very personal reasons. This series started from taking photos in Kaohsiung city in Taiwan, when I visited there on an occasion of attending the art fair. I stayed there for three days, and encountered the colourful life and activity in this tropical region.

--- Stay beyond (the boundary)

The boundary line that lies between us is like the skin that tells us we can never be completely identical. I believe it is like the horizon. Even if we thought we reached out and touched it with our hand we could not go the other side of the line. But that’s alright. That’s because knowing should not be such an easy thing.

To find the point of contact between herself and the world (=the other), I walk and show the boundary line, and try to let the viewers feel “in between”. In the far off boundary line shown in white, there is a landscape seen by the artist. You would not truly know the things seen by the artist in the real meaning. However, I want you to try and follow the process of deconstructing each colour of the scenery as if tracing the artist’s thoughts. Hopefully your imagination will work as it tries to understand the true landscape seen by someone other than yourself.

When you notice the boundary line, I want to recall the true beauty of the ability granted to human, this power of imagination. So that people can greet the world and the calm, kind future, which is embraced in whatever form it comes.
