Drifting on the dreams of ‘thousands’ of souls

Visual artist Wang Liang-Yin explores the “dissatisfaction” of being human in her latest exhibition

Her work erupts into a riot of color. Born in 1979, Wang Liang-Yin is at the forefront of Taiwanese visual art after exhibitions in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan and South Korea.

In her latest show entitled The Iris of Beasts, she drifts from dreamscapes into reality, exploring the “dissatisfaction of being “human.”

“The dimension that the artist creates is drifting near and far like a dream, yet real as reality at the same time. It is an organic space that is not only touchable, visible but also carrying hundreds of thousands of consciousness of souls,” the Lin & Lin Gallery said.

“It is sometimes sweet and warm [and] sometimes bizarre and cruel instead. Maybe, it is here that we are able a step closer to the most vital and unique nature buried deep under the consciousness as a human,” it added.

Wang Liang-Yin’s exhibition at the Lin & Lin Gallery in Taipei and entitled The Iris of Beasts runs until April 24. Click here for details.
