Artist Statement

In recent years I work with different media, often concerning personal experience, cultural heritage, and sometimes social and environmental changes as my inspirations and themes. I follow the changes of my personal life making adjestments and innovation, allowing matters in their natural forms of development. My various series of works aim to express my interest and contemplation regarding the process or the evolvement of “precipiation”, also my thoughts on “true vs untrue”and “illusion vs reality”. Although the forms and appearances of my work changes, the essence of my aimremains the same.

吳觀麟
近年我時常利用多種媒介進行創作,多以探索個人經驗、文化觀念、以致社會與環境的種種變化為創作主題。因應着個人際遇而作出不同的調節和轉化,不同系列的作品都是為了表達藝術家對「沉澱」過程的省思,和對「亦真亦假」、「虛幻與現實」的所思所想。雖作品的形態一直在轉變,然而本質不變。
