「30 ─ Printmaking Works by Tuzi」
As a copper printmaking artist, Tuzi is capable of producing copperplate paintings after many years of relevant advanced studies. She can easily turn an idea into a picture by skilfully using the characteristics of copperplate painting production. Her works is abstract and intuitive, frank and straightforward but not rigid or affected – just like her real personality. Therefore, when we appreciate her works, we can feel relaxed as if the works are naturally radiating a healing magnetic field. We can always see a lot of life experience from her works.
Turning 30 this year, Tuzi has experienced many things in life: she has moved forward in life’s journey, earned a master’s degree, started her own family and also took some time to rest. She hopes to set off again with 30 works of this exhibition, while also being a small conclusion – a sorting out of her thoughts. That is why this exhibition is named “30” and is displayed in the form of a crafts book, as if a diary telling her life in pieces.
