Artwork Appreciation
The art of Gina Chiao, who has studied and practiced in the United States, is diverse and uses multimedia. Taroko Series 01 uses color and symbols to represent the canyons, mountains and trees of Taroko. White is the base color of the painting, while jade blue, red and black symbolize the traditional colors regularly used by the Taiwan aboriginal people who live there. The mountains in the distance, the clean-cut “V” in the mid-ground and the stripe in the foreground at the left of the painting represent the mountain ranges, the canyons, and the trees. In the mountain ridge in the distance there is a semi-circular shaped sun that is just rising, showing the beginning of a day in the mountains. The artist uses abstract blocks of vivid color to concisely portray the magnificent scenic images of Taroko and communicates her inner passion and feelings.
