藝術家創作自述

藝術是一場面對自己跟誠實對待的一場盛宴,而這場盛宴就是一段生命。這場宴會不時會上些不合適自己的菜,同桌也不時出現和自己不對盤的人;我們帶著好奇心匆匆赴宴但如何最終從容退場?這是一場哭著笑,笑著哭的學問。

作品中持續探討一個議題 ''人與人間的關係'',你、我、他的關係牽引著人的思緒,其中思緒中有正負兩面,負面將導致現代人心走向貧乏、潰堤…如何化負面為正向?觀看自己是非常重要的課題,不是批判自己,而是永遠站在別人角度思考,將會得到很多原諒;世界越複雜必須化繁為簡方能使其自在,試著多花點時間看看自己將會有非凡的收穫。

Artist Statement

Creation is a grand feast of self confession, yet this feast is life. From time to time, this banquet may serve dishes that are not suitable for us; people who joined us may also be unsuited. We feasted with curiosity in a haste, yet how do we retreat elegantly? It is a wisdom of life carried with laughter and tears.

The works continue to discuss the subject of relationship between people. How do we draw people’s emotions?  Emotions towards life are reversible. While lack of positivity leads modern people’s state of mind into dilapidation, how do we transform negativity to the bright side? Introspection is a significant subject of life, putting ourselves into other’s shoes instead of criticizing will receive much more forgiveness. The more complex this world may be, the more simple it should be.
