My works are inspired by daily life that express the feeling of imperfect situations when dealing with “art”. In Japanese this term is known as Wabi-Sabi. We all encounter different obstacles through the way we explore the meaningful ingredients in our life, especially in art. For me, I'm an average worker in a mega corporation. I want to use my unique sense of expression and limited resources to form my own style and the flow in my art, so I began to learn how to make outstanding art utilizing the lowest budget. With my iPhone 6s and a pair of Ikebana scissors, I found the most inspiring and interesting thing in my life of expressing Ikebana. After composing each arrangement I do a photo shoot and then edit the photos. I focus not only on revising the light of the photo but also sometimes add illustrations to it. Sometimes I paint an abstract backgrounds with bird-like motifs, sometimes I imagine a tea bowl on the table. I think it's Wabi-Sabi to me. Flow with my own mind and follow instinct to merge the real flowers into digital imagination.
Hsi is an Ikebana artist who based in Taipei, Taiwan. She is learning Ikebana, which is a form of Japanese flower arrangement. Originating from Tokyo, Japan, the SŌGETSU (草月流) school of Ikebana is known for its very modern and outstanding style. Before she became captivated by world of flowers, she majored in fashion design at ShihChien University and worked in the garment industry. Since she is a rookie in the art circle, she tries very hard to find her own way of expressing art in busy life by doing flower arrangements and photographing them. One day in the future, she hopes her artwork, which demonstrates the beauty of flowers merged into digital / film world, can be seen by people from around the world.
