Artist Note

“Everything that exists, regardless of size and material, are lifeforms that breathes.”

Junkhouses’ works are based on hers concept of Organicism. In a nutshell, new lifeforms are born through the artist’s eyes and imaginations on inorganic objects. These inorganic objects may be something that the artist doodled, expressing the rigid objects such as houses, buildings, images, or keywords within hers unconsciousness, processed into the metaphysics and then finally born as a new and live organic image.
And these images do not just stay on the canvas. The artist would often take the images outside onto the public walls, providing them new setting to proliferate. These images may get ripped off immediately, or remain there for a day or two or, sometimes longer than usual.

Junkhouse lived in an environment where industrialization and constructions by humans have reached the limit throughout hers life, deep within the scent of concrete and co-existing with the other inorganic, stiff objects. It could be observed that it was easier for her to observe, perceive and produce hers organic images because she had been living in such an environment.

Moreover, she perceived the city as one giant organism.
The city continuously changes, whether naturally or artificially, evolve and mutate. Therefore, because the images and environment that she survives move and evolve, her forms mix and combine with each other, transform into geometic figures and forms, and finally, proliferate after reincarnation into the new formes metamorphoses.

Junkhouse will continue to find, observe and show us the co-exisiting materials and objects that we do not easily perceive, showing their own real world and transforming them through her unlimited imagination.

Junk House被理解为有机体,是以即兴想象或样子的形象而存在的。
Junk House是一个可以绘画的地方,因为对于形态的色彩的调和是最看重的。用调和好比率的状态画好素描之后,通过颜色来找准整个图片的比率和调色。所有的形态都披上了美丽的色彩,色彩配合着形态,这样就诞生了一副新的作品。就这样不断的发掘新事物,并去制作它,这就是快乐的去寻找美学的过程。
