Artist:

Hsu, Tzu-Kuey 1956-
“A world of beasts surging forward can be seen in the iridescent vortex, the existence full of myth but meanwhile realistic with all those images of natural creatures. These human-like creatures are however not human beings. They are more emotional and more intelligent than human beings are.”

Hsu’s art works as well as most of the reviews to them are full of tension. He developed his own art creation philosophy, named “Pictorial Cubism”, with which sculpture creation is deemed able to be deconstructed and shaped pictorially. In other words, brush strokes, texture, and composition play important roles in Hsu’s art works.

His early works are considered critical and negative. However, after Hsu encountered his middle age, he now prefers adding more color and subtle images of beasts into his art works. Throughout the process of creating serial of art, this artist enable himself to explore and do an art experiment. Furthermore, he has expended his own vision and knowledge domain via his ceaselessly try and insistence on distinctiveness. He observes various social phenomenon, and try to analyze them. At the same time, he takes good look into himself therefore has the ability of self-reflexiveness.

Hsu, Tzu-Kuey graduated from National Taiwan Normal University, and then got his Master’s degree in fine arts in Pratt Institute, USA, in 1988. He has been the pricipal of Taipei Hwa Kang Art School, professor, chair of Fine Art Department at Tainan University of Technology, and dean of College of Art at TUT. Hsu now lives and work in Tainan. His art works have been displayed on several solo exhibitions in Taipei Museum of Fine Arts, National Museum of Fine Arts, and Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts.

Isa HO 1977-
“She’s obsessed to dressing up. She could be an ingénue one day and a strong warrior another. Reflection of females with tremendous styles on the film feels like walking out from the lens and coming to real lives.”

As a Taiwanese contemporary feminism artist, Isa HO advocates the concept of female self-love. She’s skillful in photography, and female body is what she mostly displayed. HO drills down how feminism culture develops through out capturing different female characters. Due to HO’s discovery of some anxiety from her own socialization process, she turned this anxiety into the core subject of her art. She tries to get her female models and even herself out of the box of social norms, and figure out how specific female social roles are formed, what kind of ambivalence they encounter, and find out the equilibrium point between traditional and modern value. Her photography demonstrates female confidence that combines traditional and modern characteristics, exactly and harmoniously.

HO has various experiences participating in exhibitions in Taiwan and aboard. In Addition, she has also been artist-in-residence in ICSP, New York, and Cité internationale des arts, Paris. Her art works are now collected in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Fongjia Museum of Fine Arts, White Rabbit Gallery in Australia, and Gwangju Museum of Art in Korea.

Chung Shun-Lung 1974-
“With the perception in a multi-role life, I look for states of things and their relationships via photography.”

Chung Shun-Lung focuses on social changes caused by human civilization development. Therefore, his photos present spectacle of the era. He tries to represent his multi-role life as well as his own experiences in it in his photography. By reconstructing what he has observed in everyday life, the potential states of things in the photography format could be seen. Instead of spectacle, what Chung wants to present is a neutral, objective, and wide framed whole picture of the society —— more precisely, an ambiguity state —— via his photography. His work named “witness presence” was honorably nominated for Taipei Art Awards in 2002. Another work named “Light of Darkness” won its Kaohsiung Art Award in the next year.

Chung Shun-Lung is meanwhile a photographer and an industrious farmer. He graduated from London University of Goldsmiths College with a Master’s degree in image and communication. Before he decided to work as a freelance photographer, he had been lecturer of Department of Multimedia and Animation Art and Department of Visual Communication Design in National Taiwan University of Art.

Hsu Tang-Wei 1980-
“Messy ropes and images make the composition firm but eternally changeable. A complex map with a precise coordinate that can ne found by the first glance. This is the best description to Hsu’s art.”

Despite the complicated composition, Hsu’s paintings give audience a calm feeling. Skillfully adding decorations onto pictures that are already fully occupied by images, he creates a harmonious and steady space rather than a chaos. Contrastive colors, unoriented lines, and irregular shapes, all these elements collaborate together in Hsu’s work in a magical fantastic style. Via his art, he invites audience to an adventure and exploration into his imaginary world.

Hsu Tang-Wei graduated from Shih Chien University with a bachelor degree in architecture, and then continued his study in plastic arts at Tainan National University of the Art. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles and Taipei. Hsu has various experiences participating in international art exhibitions and holding solo exhibitions. Furthermore, he has been artist-in-residence and completes series of public art. Hsu’s works has been nominated by Asian Cultural Council and Taipei Art Awards, and has won Taoyuan International Art Awards.

Tsai Yi-Ju 1980-
“Unplug rock brings a pure expression of inner passion to life.”

In Tsai’s early period of art creation, she focused on ink wash painting. As time goes by, she learned to combine the method of creative thinking and graffiti from western art into eastern traditional ink wash painting. A contemporary personal art style was born. Tasi’s paintings with both abstract and realistic images are full of innocent symbols, such as dinosaur, tank, and imagined creature, that make her art works vital. These symbols originated from her childhood memory with which she started her own adventure into her inner world. Tsai believes that this adventure would finally end up like a dream after the search is done.

Tsai Yi-Ju obtained her Master’s degree in visual art creation at National Chiayi University. She now works as professional artist. In resent years, she has held several solo-exhibitions. In 2017, Tsai co-exhibited her art works with YIART in “Critical Point: A Conversation between Monochrome and Color”. Additionally, she was artist-in-residence in Japan in 2012 and in Korea in 2015. Her works are collected in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art and Sun Yi-San Memorial Hall, Taipei.

Chen Mintse 1972-
“Recognizable abstract realism is definitely Chen’s style.”

Chen worked in engineering field after graduated from Nation Taiwan University. Due to the passion about art, she decided to study oil painting in Chicago Art College, USA. She has great amount of knowledge of human visual experience therefore could trace the images of those common materials from daily life in specific color combinations and forms. In addition, her well understanding of optical character of oil painting helps her dominate colors in her creation better. Color different is something Tsai considers flexibility of expressing different emotions and meanings via her painting. By telling these difference, audience could feel depth of field in Chen’s art works.

Chen believes in the concept of abstractionism and phenomenalism that emphasizes critical lines of thing and human perceptual phenomena. Contrastive colors, depth of field, and blur line of object in her painting lead audience immerse themselves in their own perception of the scenery. In this situation, the subsistence or what the artist see has no say. It is what the audience see that matters.

Hsu Ming-Jen 1975-
“After image of the scenery is as light as a feather, and the scenery even more so. But, they both leave a mark in heart.”

In the wide field of contemporary art, Hsu chooses sketch as his creation format. Recycled newspaper and magazine are used by him as sketching book. The horizontal lines on the uneven surface of these paper represent the character of scenery he sees, and the simplified color highlights his abstractionism style. What he wants to capture, is not the real scenery but the impression given by the scenery perishing as time goes by. And what the audience see, is only after image remaining in his memory.

Hsu Ming-Jen obtained his MFA at State University of New York at New Paltz. In 2014, he held his solo exhibition called “Passed Away Scenery: Hsu Ming-Jen’s Sketch Solo Exhibition” at Taipei Museum of Fine Arts. Three year later, he co-exhibited his drawing with YIART at “Critical Point: A Conversation between Monochrome and Color”. His works are collected in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and Art Bank Taiwan running by it.

Chou Cheng-Liang 1969-
“Slothful and soft lines in the painting radiate the warmth of time and life.”

Landscape in a hazy state, combining fantasy and reality, is what Chou sees and feels. He captures both city and countryside scenery in his daily life with traditional composition of Chinese Shan Shui (landscape) painting skill, tender brush stroke, and on-the-spot drawing skill, creates a magical realism atmosphere. This concept originated not from Chou’s imagination but from those glamourous moments in his own life. Chou believes that live experience and presence at places are the fundamental elements for art creation. Via childlike perspective and phenomenalism philosophy, he presents a misty quodis arcana full of overlapping mild colors layers in his unique way.

Chou Cheng-Liang finished his MAF at Graduate institute of Plastic Art in Tainan National University of the Art. He has been artist-in-residence in China and Korea, and his paintings has been independently and co-exhibited in Korea and the USA. His art works are now collected in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and National Museum of Taiwan History.
