Boys Gone Wild

Each of them had applied his own unique symbols into the creation of works to tell us about their own experience and the observation of the environment they are living in a bantered-like of way。
Behavior Modification 04
My artistic creations are focusing on the conflicts of the real life, especially the role that people play in the society. In my opinion, people are fettered by their identities, but at the same time they are pursuing them. It seems hard to get rid of it, because there will always be some people that shape you and think that you have to reach their expectation; nonetheless, conflicts and contradictions appear, while we expect ourselves to become certain kind of person. We see a beautiful and order world under this thought, yet, what I would like to present are the things that behind the beauty, the things that in fact are being suppressed or rectified. Therefore, I attached the importance to the emotional portray of people with a little bit of innocent, nervous, or guilty. It seems to be hidden a number of sticky and sick emotion, somehow there is no choice. On the other hand, I would like to turn the latent drives into physical way that people can feel the point of pain, and the present of the pain is actually made up by the environment and the desire of oneself. Now, can you see my points why I choose to convey the involuntary persecution by comic fighting? Others can only truly understand it, when things are based on expectation, and this is exactly what plays in our life again and again. However, in the end, they will become stronger no matter how.
You Take Not Only My Hand
This is a series of paintings describing the people I observe in the cities. I attempt to represent the familiar emotions toward the cities, and also transform these kinds of feelings into “The Dot Men” of my works. This also goes deep into the conversations between the cities and myself, and helps me to get to know myself once more.
The way I represent this series of works is though painting and I choose the industrial products, markers and spray, as the media for they are the most accessible tools in my life. I draw my works by applying a lot of "dots" onto the objects which represent the way individuals in the cities: alone, but yet closely stick with each other. The assembled dots are driven by their desires, just as the objects of lust in my paintings. Only by looking at them closer can you find out it's constructed by individual dots. The industrial features of markers and spray can emphasize the sick and unpleasant atmosphere that I want to create and thus represent the state of trance of modern people.
The Rose at Corner 02
Moe represents the passion of otaku.
“Moe” is a Japanese slang word originally referring to fetish for characters in video games or anime and manga. Because the Japanese colonization in Taiwan during World War II and the close geopolitics between Taiwan and Japan, Taiwanese always exist a familiar but contradictory proposition in receiving culture from Japan. In addition, because of the special island nation character in Taiwan, the nature of Taiwanese’ quick absorbing and consuming the foreign culture also form the special mutation in Taiwan visual culture. Therefore, those sexy female characters in Japanese anime have transformed into the spicy products for Taiwanese otaku, the ‘spicy girl’ visual culture. In order to attract the sights of those males who indulge in the virtual anime world, the business man search the spicy dress in manga and put on their sales girls; such as the odd but sexy clothes of the betel nuts girls on street in Taiwan. Now, the ordinary street has become the fantasy anime space for those otaku, where fulfill with the sings of “Moe”. Since then, there has no boundary between virtual and reality…
Unblessed love No.02
(La) El Nino, global warming, currency expansion, energy crisis, short supply of food, financial crisis, races problem, terrorism are the current global disasters around the world, and the challenge of human colon issue by the concept of moral, gender identity problem, birth decrease and a problem of marriage policy .etc are also the problems that human being are unable to stop them to be occurred.
The Hollywood movies became popular while the economy was depressing, and the creation of super hero characters, Batman, Spider Man, Green Hornet and King Kong were produced in the bleak year of 1930 because people needed to transfer their emotion into these fictitious heroes and look forward the positive satisfaction. Most of people build their imagination of idols by a movie, a comic book, an election and a ball game; therefore, these political figures, idols, cartoon characters, and ballgame players have become the most effective people in the society because of the base of high selling record builds the miracle.
“Unblessed Love” is formed and shaped by television commercial or public voices; therefore, what we see is not what we get. The life value has twisted to something we can not recognize. In the real world, the global disasters have become pieces in a fictitious cartoon film. A hero is not a hero; a criminal is not a criminal anymore. If there is no logical justice in the world, if a criminal does not have certain shape and if using military forces is not helpful, then does a hero know how to deal with a criminal, and what kind of a hero we need in our century?
