It is the little things that construct our life. Shieh Kai Ki (Hannah) usually uses mixed media in her works to tell a story or send a message, addressing particular issues inspired by her observation in everyday life.

Hannah’s practice includes bookmaking, printmaking and illustrative drawings. Her motivation for artmaking is to tell or further interpret a story of what she has experienced, to keep a record of what she sees. In the era of technology, people who enjoy drawing and making things out of hand is rare but they are what she treasures the most. She is curious about what people do on a daily basis, what they encounter in life randomly, what they dream about, or their reactions towards different topics or social issues. Hannah believes these are the most appealing features of human nature. Life is not always good, it sometimes sucks. Her works take the ordinary out of reality and transform to her own visual language. Hannah hopes that her creation can evoke emotions or resonance among people at some point in their lives.

生活是從瑣碎、細微的東西建構起來的。

謝佳淇的創作多為混合媒介,包括書本、版畫,繪畫和平面設計。她好奇人們在生活中對各種議題的回應和感受,並通過日常的觀察,在作品中傳遞她想要訴說的訊息和故事。

對她而言,將所見所聞以畫面詮釋出來是她維持創作的力量。在科技發達的世代,享受繪畫和親手製作的人並不多,而她珍惜的是自己依然熱愛這些事。

人生不總是好的,有時候很糟糕。她特寫現實裡那些平常的事,轉化成自己的視覺語言。希望可以在某些時刻,喚起人們的情緒與共鳴。

You won’t get hurt if you stay away from it.
But if you are afraid,
you miss things that could have been amazing.

不靠近的話就不會受傷。
但太害怕的話、
就無法好好享受了。
