At first glance, Hong Yong-Xin’s works look like a series of inkblot tests. Perhaps her works are meant to stir our emotions in a subtle way. Butterfly specimens are glued onto the paper, theirs colors and patterns carefully interacting with the paint.
In contrast to Hong’s works, Christina Tsai’s paintings are more direct and restless in giving the viewers a visual experience. For Tsai, creating these pieces aims to expose the naked existence of the self and serves as an immediate response to the feelings she has when making them. (via Facebook)
The pieces shown here are available for viewing at SLY Artspace, Taipei.
