EXHIBITION

Flesh and Soul - Jasper Huang

"All of my work is based on 'the study of human behavior', and in particular the issues that revolve around traditional and modern life.
I wonder about the greed of human nature and the projection of desire.

I try to invite the public to discuss my work as objectively as possible. Thus, only the viewer decides the degree of intensity of desire in my achievements.

We are different in our habits, however, it seems that we have the same quests which are often related to the material things of life, power, money, sex…. These secondary needs occupy a primary place in human DNA and no one seems to be immune.

Since ancient times, mankind has learned to hunt animals to satisfy its appetite and to pillage land to establish symbols of power and status.

In ancient Rome, warriors of high rank, as well as part of the nobility, wore muscular breastplates adorned with mythological scenes. They were the projection of an idealized human body and symbolizing their supremacy over the enemy. Even today, living in opulence and exhibiting it remains the most universal way if one wishes to become the object of all desires.

According to historians, the importance of desire dates back to the earliest sounds made by man to signify his desire for the flesh. "


I combine the concept of perspective, light and shadow of Western painting with the mood and philosophy of Eastern painting and translate this combination into colored ink.

I draw most of my inspiration from my life experience. I look for the link with modern civilization in antique museum paintings, thus pursuing the philosophical meaning of my art, mixing the real with the unreal as in a dream.

In my paintings I use tea and coffee to stain the background, interpreting the unconscious desire that drives human beings every day. I choose delicate and hard silk as the main material for my paintings. Choosing this work medium is not only a way to highlight the essence of the East, but it is also the most symbolic material of my personality.

 

This is because the flow of pigments, traces, air bubbles produced by the process of breathing the canvas and the shrinkage of the silk caused by the process of drying the ink, all express the changes of desire. in our daily life.

In my work, you can interpret distant desire as a veil. It’s like a mountain or a wispy cloud in the distance, or like a dream that cannot be easily interpreted… but sometimes it’s bold, naked and presented in a bright way.
