The intersections, enigmas, and inevitable conflicts of multiculturalism are central to my practice. My personal aesthetics challenges conventional art-and-spectator relationships, focusing on the fleeting gestures and social subtleties of lived experience or brief movement rather than on labelled material objects.
My Taiwanese background and ancestral lineages to Japan, China, and the Netherlands, provide a starting point for the imaginary space of my work. I’m interested in the balance between the sense of aesthetics and the sense of pleasures and metaphors of the iconography of infants to question the social subtleties of lived experience. Human desire, fetish, ambivalence, sadism and obsession find their way into my work. I approach each piece multidisciplinary through performances, painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, text, and collages.
Through an experimental approach, I observe and gather layers of symbolism and meanings through diverse metaphoric arrangements and interpretations. Each composition explores the philosophical and metaphysical in-between of the human relationship to body, time, space, life and death. I seek to establish an inner equilibrium between rational analysis and sentimental interpretations. I assume that all figures, colours, and materials can be analysed, deconstructed, and criticised, in all their manifestations, finally crystallising to reveal hidden metaphors and perspectives.
