HUANG Ko-Wei

The Seventh Genre: Habitat/Zoo/National Park



I try to explore the relationship between paintings and images through painting practices. Our surroundings are full of images that are difficult to be defined and categorized. We sometimes see clearly; however, sometimes, what in front of our visions are quite unreal. Painting and images are meant to be silent but expressive. What poetic paintings provide the viewer is beyond a visual experience. I try to create ambiguity and confusion in my practices. By reinforcing the visual movement and mind swing, I thus interpret the ethereal vibe in my surroundings.

Therefore, the visual experience that I am extremely familiar with is enveloped by an indescribable sense of body that relies on my imagination and form a huge “vacancy.” Such interpretation does not establish a certain position or dialectic consequentialism, but it proposes a process of how painting locates itself by deviating the expectation in the era of visuality. The artist and the viewer simultaneously swing among verbally ambiguous senses, throwing ourselves a question that cannot be concluded, and attempting to wake the spirituality of our time.
