Artwork Appreciation
HO Huey-Chih is an artist skilled at depicting still life with meticulous and complex brush strokes. She seeks her themes in the cuisine and utensils of daily use in Taiwan, filling her paintings with ordinary objects found randomly in everyday life. HO Huey-Chih 's Harvest Season is filled with beautiful images of dumplings, beef noodles, fresh vegetables and fruit, all foodstuffs--all iconic snacks and dishes of Taiwan, and all representing a satisfying feast for the eyes of the beholder. At ""Harvest Season,"" the Jewish people traditionally offer sacrifices to God of the grain of new harvest and a lamb to express their thanks. HO Huey-Chih attempts to reference this tradition and convey to Taiwanese that when we enjoy these foods, we should first be thankful to God that she has blessed Taiwan with sufficient water that we may grow excellent grain and agricultural products, and we should cherish all that we enjoy with a grateful heart.
