Entry Description

These blurry contorted figures, emerging from the twilight, with the darkish half-human, half- beast features, are struggling between physicality and spirituality incessantly and restlessly. These pictures were taken by one shot, with nearly none of embellishment or modification by using graphic software.

About Photographer

I come from Taiwan. I received my master degree from Taipei National University of the Arts (TUNA), Taiwan. I am teaching visual arts in universities and colleges. As a digital visual artist, I create images that extract the most exquisite elements deep inside my heart, my mind and my soul. My art works reflect my senses of aesthetics and views of philosophy, rather than only record the explicitly observable phenomenal world. That is to say: "I feel, I think, so I create." Most of the time, I rely on my instincts for creation. I intend to catch the evanescent moments and depict the essence of eternity from transience through photography. Besides the characters of impromptu delights, my digital art works are unbounded by existing forms and structure, and freely blend of western and oriental cultural elements. Some of them are endowed with metaphysical poetry.
