"Fast," "hype," and "packaging," brings extravagant material consumption, as well as symbolic business culture, which makes the power of the individual irresist the tide swept. Therefore, it easily leads the public to succumb to quick and temporary popularity.
The existence of pop culture further defines the commodity's connotation as anti-art, making the commodity and commerce a symbol of overturning high spirits attacking traditional art.
My work functions by appropriating fashion products, and commodities. These sleek and gorgeous images depict generation Z, an era of rapid material economic development, and attempt to highlight the dangers of continuing to support materialism. When I put forward the issue of the relationship between commodities and people, the audience needs to reflect on the influence of the media in generation Z on us and question the power of the fashion/product industry endorsement. My painting combines abstract and figurative, which is a challenge to Pop art. I develop the painting practice of combining abstract and Pop. With a visual narrative to reveal the pop culture under the influence of the current society.
