Announcing Ho Chia-Lien’s Exhibition “Life cycle and painting record”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Life cycle and painting record
by Ho Chia-Lien on November 23 (Fri) to 29 (Thurs) , as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura.

Ho Chia- Lien lives and works in Taitung, graduated from the Western Painting Creation Group of the Fine Arts College of National Taiwan Normal University. The art studio was established in 2004. He likes to use watercolor as a medium to create new visual experiences, exploring the virtual and realistic aspects of watercolor, the theme and the associated spatial relationship.

In addition to painting, Ho also uses hair to create a special visual experience by exploring the memory of hair, the cutting of emotions, and the thought behind the act of cutting hair. Ho expresses a spiritual liberation and emotional tension, observing and feeling life.

Here are some words from the artist himself.

Usually I like to use watercolor as a medium to record new visual experiences.
This time I tried to create a new medium of hair and plants, showing the state of falling or abandoned in the life cycle. Reshape a new life by cutting with the past.
