游悠 首饰设计 本科预科
I am an observant individual, and most of my creative inspiration and materials come from daily life. I enjoy transforming abstract concepts into tangible forms. Additionally, I have a keen perception of colours and scents. I love experimenting with various materials, exploring and utilizing their unique qualities and textures, and incorporating them into my artistic expressions.
In my artwork series titled <Family Portraits>. I aim to commemorate my childhood memories with my grandparents. I have selected items associated with each individual's scent as the primary materials, including liquorice, braised meat seasoning, and gelatin water. Then, based on the distinctive characteristics of my grandparents, such as their personalities, I extracted elements like colours, shapes, and textures, and combined them with the main ingredients to create a one-of-a-kind "self-portrait."
I employ innovative materials and fuse them with jewellery techniques for artistic expression. To depict my grandfather's rough texture, I grind the braised meat seasoning into powder, mix it with plaster powder, and let it dry to achieve a coarse texture. For my grandmother's dry and rough texture, I melt gelatin sheets, blend them with gelatin water and soapy water, and blow bubbles. When these bubbles dry, they mimic the roughness of my grandmother's hands. As
for my own smooth texture, I use liquorice powder mixed with silicone gel, which gives the artwork both resilience and smoothness. I extracted colour palettes from these three main materials: I represent myself with a fresh green, my grandmother with an angry red and calm blue, and my grandfather with a warm and steady yellow-brown. Subsequently, based on each person's character, I selected corresponding shapes: I am a cone shape, symbolizing my cautiousness towards strangers; my grandmother is a triangle, representing her sharp tongue but tender heart; and my grandfather is a trapezoid, symbolizing his upright nature. By combining these colours, textures, and shapes, I created the final artwork.
