Through intuition, layering, and the expression of emotional tension, this series explores and experiments on the canvas using vibrant colors and intuitive brushstrokes. It presents a pursuit of real life and introspection during the period of the pandemic—an exploration of the seemingly failed, misaligned, and struggling processes through abstract lines and colors that translate these fragmented emotions, accumulated thoughts, and events. In doing so, it reveals the most precious aspects of everyday life and the authentic dimensions of human nature.

Szuling is a multidisciplinary artist working across design, photography and art. And also a pharmacist. She graduated both from National Taiwan University (2010) in Pharmacy and National Taiwan University of Arts (2016) in Visual Communication. Experimentality and abstract avant-garde are two major characteristics of her works. Artworks from photography, graphics, motions, paintings, and still explore various possibilities. In less than a year after her works, she was soon selected to the Tokyo International Art Fair and won Gold Winner in The Paris Photography Prize (PX3).
