Wu Hsichi

Wu Hsichi first started developing the series "The Cage of the Human World". The series is about how human society has embraced the speed and convenience due to technology and media. And how, at the same time, humans are loosing their natural abilities and spirit.

Hsichi uses crayons to connect to his memories of childhood, letting him find purer and more innocent creation experience. This shows how he still examines himself at the age of 50, and also how, he has developed a brand-new visual language.

Thick oil pastels repeatedly rubbing against paper retain dense lines showing the artist’s emotions on the texture of the paper. Magic compositions present the thought of the artist warning of the existing state of humans, which serves as fables.

The paintings have rich and lively styles. Their steady colors lead us to a more profound language of atmosphere in which the lines link everything togehter. Characters and scenery in the pictures are controlled by these lines, so they only look with their intangible expressions.

Wu Hsichi has studied philosophy, and thus, he pays more attention to the unique aesthetic value in correspondance to nature and humanity. In his creation he strongly feels a social transformation which is worth the reflection.
