Entry Description

In this image, the black and white stripes imply the disadvantageous and vulnerable substance of females. Like a zebra, women have to arm themselves to prevent from the pillagers. The stripes also insinuate the scars that women have been seared insidiously. Their bodies are often the target of physical attack or language violence. Even more, they are materialized to satiate men's desire or submit to men's prestige.

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.
