Wu Chia-Ying (1992-)
‘With the human body as the iconic representation, my art embodies the mythical atmosphere that solely belongs to the body language. I have transformed the back dimple into facial expressions, like a human face, while it hints at the emotions and many feelings of a person’
Wu Chia-Ying was born in Changhua, Taiwan and received his fine art master degree from the Taipei National University of the Arts. In 2014, he received selected prizes from both Taiwan International Art Association and Central Taiwan Arts Exhibition, marking a significant year for the artist. Besides the awards, Chia-Ying held his solo exhibition ‘Breathless’ at New Taipei City Art Centre in 2015. In the same year he was invited to exhibit in ‘Spirit ‧ Timespace’ with oil painting artist Zhuo Bi Hui in Taichung, Young Art Kaohsiung 2015 Rising Artist Section as well as 2014 Artist Fair Taiwan by AVAT (Association of the Visual Arts in Taiwan).
The primary concept of the ‘Flesh Series’ comes from a longing for the flesh, and subsequently the desire for it. It is between the female body and the luscious flesh where a balance is reached. The artist creates a world on the canvas that mirrors his inner world where the search for a sense of security and existence takes place. Within this unique world of flesh, the audience witnesses how these symbolic body figures continue to reshape the forms of desire.
