Artwork Appreciation
HUANG Yen-Ying’s works are often based upon the differences between Eastern and Western mindsets and between ancient and modern knowledge systems. These comparisons were then converted into a visual language in order to provide a deep presentation of the artist’s metaphorical reference to Taiwanese history and modern social mindsets. Guitar Player is an illustration of left and right human arms upon which dozens of shining bright spots have been scattered, reminding us of ancient meridian charts in Chinese medicine used to locate pressure points on our bodies. At the same time, however, the unique formation of the spots outlines the shape of the human brain like a star constellation. By comparing between meridian charts and star maps, the artist provides an innovative reflection on the value of the human soul, and highlighting the viewer’s historical and social observations can help reconsider the links that exist between the individual and society.
