As setting the theme of mountain forests, sea areas, and running water in valleys, this solo exhibition captures the natural landscape in local Taiwan as the elements, including the mountain peaks that stand out majestically, choppy sea views, or the clear water running across rock canyon. Through the artist’s observation of seasonal changes, the world implies life history in the universe and brings abundant energy to everything on earth. The artist interprets landscapes between earth and sky through brushes and oil paints, presenting Taiwan’s unique colors and rich vitality. Her artworks convey the touching sensation inspired by the land of Taiwan, guiding viewers to the natural “Vision” of beautiful Taiwan.

From the natural microscopic appearance and the landscape atmosphere in mountains and the sea, the artist explores nature and the meaning of life, discovering the colors and the unique vitality between earth and sky. Randomly selecting the local natural vigor in life, the artist demonstrates all things on the earth through her painting brushes, wandering among light and shadow, colors, and scenarios to seek the truth, the goodness and the beauty. With her perspectives and comprehension of interpreting nature, the artist records the vigor of greenness and the mountains’ long-flowing stream water in macrocosm through realistic paintings, probing natural connotations and expressing her feelings for the world among the atmosphere of all things. In her peaceful life and plain yet perpetual creation, the artist expects to pursue arts unremittingly and quietly leave a touch of color in the pages of painting nature.

The artworks of the current oil painting solo exhibition—Natural Vision, present the topics through realistic techniques. The artist employs oil painting because she particularly loves the texture and effect of oil paints that can perform multicolored outcomes with subtle texture, which is helpful to deliver various Taiwanese features and the layers of light and dark in natural scenery, bringing the artist diverse painting space.
To the artist, the pros of realistic oil painting are the capacity of color overlapping with repeated corrections; it requires patience to conduct realistic painting, using the technique to grind the picture out and gradually achieving the expected outcomes.
Realistic artworks for the artist are like challenges that refine one’s mentality; it needs calm and practical emotions with an extremely settled pace to present the artistic conception that the artist desires to show using natural and appropriate manners.
The completion of each work takes time to develop. Artists cannot urge to speed up the process; instead, it requires conducting each stroke wholeheartedly. Light and dark, coloring, and compositions are the points that need to consider during the process.
Realistic paintings rely on visuals to deliver aesthetics, and the beauty that realistic paintings convey is that artists can form a unique personal artistic conception through the ways they intend to exhibit. The spiritual connotations shown in realistic paintings are more likely for the public to understand and accept.
The painting content, diversification, and applications of artistic creation exist in the wholehearted mindset. Through the personal morals cultivated by artistic creation, the flexibility of applying various contents and creative manners in realistic painting generates myriads of presenting ways, allowing artists to use them arbitrarily and interpret the works diversely or as a reflection of tradition. The artist aspires to take the natural elements in Taiwan as her painting topics, exhibiting the artworks with natural styles of Taiwan features.
