Cian-Yu Bai

Taiwan - 1984

”How emotion lead us to destiny which we picture in our mind? How do we value emotion nowadays? Every history, life, memory, society, family and love and carry sensitivities and emotion to the future with their own intensity. All of the paths have been taken and forking tracks inside of time display different possibellities.

 

There is always has poetry elements in the story of my painting. Through mysterious figures wich some parts slightly merge into background and surround by bright fading garden. I try to depict the lightness of fleeting moment as a dream theater. In front os changes and ephemerals, I am search for the boundary of memory, space and interpretation between the inevitable heaviness and lightness in life." Cian Yu Bai
