HSIAO Chu-Fang

In the “Flowing Christmas”, I arrange a person, and put the glasses on his face. I felt the glasses turn to a bow. Then, I painted some red and green noodles connect to the bow. I was a game that I play with myself when these associations came into my mind. Now I am telling you the humor thing in the “Flowing Christmas”, but suddenly it become really not funny to tell you this directly.

Being a kind language, art can tell us about the artist’s thinking. I would like to make people understand my work easily. I am trying to observe people including myself, and record my life by painting.

For me, the manuscript is diary, and some of them could be pieces of me. Like talking to myself, painting could be a media to convey many ideas and my daily life.

One day, I was squatting and washing my head, and my head accidentally hit the faucet. It was a deeply pain! It occurred to me that the foam on my head could turn white to pink. I actually made sure of it at that moment. In this exhibition, I show about 10 pieces in my past 10 year works. People is always the subject that I concern about. I am happy that I always have the sense of humor to treat anything. By making art, I can record my observation and thinking in my life.
