I possess a strong and a deep love of visual imagery. The foundation of my Western and Chinese training comes from Taiwan master artists Shih-Ciao Li and Ke-Mei Li. I participated in art workshops by artists with different styles and was influenced by modern fashion and contemporary trends. Touched by the subjective works of Impressionism, Cubism, the endless imagination of Surrealism, the bold colors of Fauvism, and the construction and beauty of the musical rhythm of Abstract Expressionism, my objective is to show the essence of images rather than reflect the image or object. Accordingly, my art works present a stronger essence than the actual figures. Shapes and colors are the essential elements of paintings. I transform everything around me into an interaction of shapes and colors. By my use of mixed media (i.e. broken string instruments) I present the inherent vitality of different form elements by adding dissimilar materials to shape the paintings
I want the people who look at my paintings to get pleasure and beauty from them. I want to make it easier for them to experience something deeper and richer each time they revisit a painting, and to be happier because of it.
