胡愷昕透過繪畫將熟悉的事情陌生化,以作品作為語言,連結自身與社會。她以日常生活中最容易忽視的細節作為靈感,並融合小說家、社會學家、甚至是陌生人和鏡頭下的人物,擦出不同領域之間的火花,將各種存在與不存在的情感都演繹出來。 胡愷昕重新思考傳統繪畫中的既定形象和結構,研究不同物料的可塑性,嘗些跨越作品表達及展現方法的限制。她受實體論(Ontology)所啟發,對物件存在情感,擁有思考及語言能力的想法很感興趣。她的作品融合了繪畫與日常物件,從而創造出獨特的重量、質感和型態。她強調創造過程中無法預料的偶然性,重視日常生活的細節和物件,甚至是短暫的對話,都是她創作的元素。 近期,她進一步擴闊了繪畫的技巧,重新思考繪畫的本質和「物件為雕像」的概念,並利用油畫的特性,令作品從平面延至立體空間,創造出另類的風格。

 


Glary Wu’s work transforms and defamiliarizes the conversant things through painting and drawing, as a language to connect and shorten the distance between oneself and the society. She often starts with her particular observation on something minor and inconspicuous, while taking reference from novelist, sociologists, photographs she took, and strangers met in daily life. The interaction within various fields of studies, with poetic notion allowing emotional interpretation on existence and absence, are involved.

Her practice reconsiders the general knowledge on form and structure of painting, while experimenting the possibility of material, pushing the limits of the story’s presentation and displaying approach. Regarding to ontology, she interested in the possibility of personal emotions, understanding and languages applied to found objects. Glary is associated with combining the flat area of pictorial painting and drawing, and daily object with unique function, weight, texture, and form.
