Invisible Field of Vision XIV
"Invisible Field of Vision XIV"
Art photography by Wu Hsichi
Photography is part of Wu Hsichi's life. In 2016, he moved to the seaside of Yilan County. He often walked along the coast alone and looked at the infinite possibilities between the vast Pacific Ocean and the earth. Wu Hsichi used the camera to record the momentary scene and capture the moment with his deep and persistent artistic emotions. If these photos are the records of his life, it is more accurate to say that these photos are another important form of his creation. The complete structure and narrative space in the photos, like many of his artworks, are always astonishing and touching.
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.
