SHIEH Kai Ki

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.

建構起生活的都是瑣碎、細小的東西。謝佳淇的創作多數為混合媒介,透過日常的觀察去傳遞她想說的故事或訊息。 她的媒介包括書本、版畫,繪畫和平面設計。對她來說,維持創作的力量是能夠將所經歷和看見的用畫面詮釋出來。 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。她好奇人們在生活中對各種議題的回應和感受。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。希望可以生命中某些時刻,喚起人們的情感或共鳴。
