Angela is interested in exploring human’s complex emotion and relationship, which aim to transforming it into installation piece. Her works are constructed as a simulation of people’s feeling in an abstract display, using handmade materials, such as resin bricks, huge handmade arrow and semi-transparent door. She believes that installation art has obviously character of interaction, which also has more dimension for her to express ideas instead of two-dimension work. In the structure of her work, she convinces that interactive between audience and installation seems like another sort of gravitation pull and push the work.
During a peaceful residency period near seaside, she is trying to describe natural affairs via glowing materials and structures.
