戴纖蘄
DAI Xian Qi

Valerie Dai enjoys using ink as the media to create artworks related to traditional art. Moreover, she also likes to explore more new media. She has always been affected by living beings and she is also susceptible to the emotional fluctuations of these living beings. She believes that emotion is the most powerful thing in the world and that emotions drive the living body like a devil. She regards her artwork as a realistic embodiment of emotion. Her artworks advocate that people should pay attention to the basic qualities of themselves and that the audience should respect the innermost feelings of others.

戴纖蘄喜歡用以水墨作為媒介,創作與傳統藝術相關的作品。此外,她還喜歡以新的藝術形式探索一切可能性。

戴纖蘄一直被生命與生物影響,亦容易被他們細微的情緒變化所感染:她相信情緒是世界上最神奇和最有力量的東西,就像魔鬼一樣驅使著所有生命體。她將自己的作品視為抽象情緒的現實化身,並希望作品能夠帶領人們關注自身最基本的組成部分,尊重每個人的內心深處——最真實的自己。

“A girl is so gorgeous like a beautiful flower. She could be you, or me. If she cannot be found in fairyland, she cannot be found anywhere.”

We are wandering between reality and unreality, are blurring our skin.

「雲想衣裳花想容,如你如我卻朦朧。
若非群玉山頭見,哪兒哪兒不曾逢。」
