"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 essence of pop art is to deconstruct thoughts, which is a kind of ideology of deconstruct and remodel. It is anti-historical and anti-classical, and often takes social figures of the masses and it copies the original appearance of life as the basic elements of creation. But this empty “art” is over-interpreted, which makes the empty subject matter more superficial.
The existence of the pop culture further defines the connotation of the commodity as anti-art, which makes the commodity and commerce as a symbol of overturning high spirits attack traditional art.
My work works by appropriating fashion products, 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 the generation Z on us and question the power of the fashion/product industry endorsement. My painting combines abstract and concrete, 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.
