The very first exhibition of VT Artsalon in 2020 is emerging artist Ou Jing-Yun, presenting us 《Flames of Illusion》.He applies painting as his main creative form. He often draws on mythical narratives of loss, joy, the sensual and the universe as his creative resource. These serve as creative methodologies through which he produces violent content, extending these notions into the medium of painting and the creation of sensory visual works. In his work can be perceived representations of war, pleasure, religion and the mania of the human condition, with some aphrodisiac and intent to influence the viewer to think about the meaning of shame and notions of evil.
The motive for this exhibition comes from 1930 Taiwanese and Japanese painting. It was an important era for the devilment of Taiwanese art. Paintings from that time were filled with authentic cultural colors, praising for the imaginary future. The styles were diverse and new. The most interesting part of these paintings are the expression of battles, portraits of woman and the modernize scenery. Artist hopes that with my paintings and expressions I am able to show it in different symbols. And also allow the possibility for the violence and desires from the flesh to intertwined together.
