古孟萱｜ GU Meng-Xuan
Born in Miaoli, Taiwan in 1998, graduated from the Department of Fine Arts, National Changhua Normal University, and is currently studying at the Institute of Plastic Arts, National Tainan University of the Arts. Personal creation is dedicated to planes, installations, traditional calligraphy and painting, extending from personal life experience and growth background to the possibility of creation, and paying attention to social awareness. Using art to provide different viewing perspectives, and trying to use different media to create, and began to try to transfer pictures to rice paper, corresponding to traditional calligraphy and painting requires a lot of experience to complete, thinking about the possibility of calligraphy and painting in this fast-paced era.
We live in a society with more and more information and less and less meaning. The images in the media have surpassed reality. Under the dominance of the media, the images of real events, such as the Ukrainian-Russian War, have become a relationship between reality and online information warfare, becoming a virtual war. In the world of television and the Internet, we have lost the ability to capture the reality of war, and the horror of war is consumed like a horror movie, becoming a kind of entertainment beyond reality. It becomes a sense of the sublime when the amount of intimidating and unsettling information on the Internet continues to accumulate. It also reflects people's macroscopic vision of nature in calligraphy and painting. With the monument-like natural landscape, the viewer is aroused to feel powerless to the huge data. By transferring images of wars and disasters from news, movies, etc. on the Internet, and using the travel map of rivers and mountains as the proof of traditional ink painting, a large number of images are continuously collected on the Internet, responding to the era of quantified images, and at the same time exploring the flood of images information society.
