The Birth of Daisy’s Art

 

I’m a Taiwanese-Canadian photographer, make-up artist and art director.

Born and raised in Taiwan, I now live and work from Vancouver and my studios around the world.

In my work what some may consider excessively packaged or unrealistic I think has the power to draw us away from the daily trappings of our mundane lives to consider realities beyond the current one.

In 2014, I graduated from the Blanche Macdonald Centre makeup program and while vacationing in Taiwan, I realized the hometown of my imagination no longer existed. In my evolution, I’d become an outsider in both Taiwan and Canada. I felt lost, often confusing the customs and cultures of two societies I simultaneously belong to - what is right or wrong, white or black.

The “cell“ concept was born out of this period.

My health was going downhill and worsen by the pressure.

At the time I didn’t realized I would pay for the consequence so soon.

My Photography And Art Direction - A personal Renaissance 

Focusing On the Theme Of "Rebirth" I Have Often Felt Connected To Works From This Period As Creating Art Is Very Much The Bright, renewing Sun Of My Life.

 
 

A brush with death

Without warning I passed out in the bathroom. I still remember the feeling of losing my identity in a consuming darkness and the fear of having no place in the world. In my loneliness the shadows whispered - what do we have after death and will I forget all the joy that is mine today?

The Near-Death Experience affected me deeply,

The Brain Hypoxia Episode Shifted My Practice, Content and Mind-set. 

 

I Couldn't Access My Studio Set Up Anymore, But The Urge To Express Myself Through Art Never Stopped.

I Started Shooting With My Phone and I Was Delighted by The Resulting Quality. I Was Fascinated By The Mainstream Modern and Even More By The Effervescent Quality Of The Digital Age Connected.

I want my legacy to be Timeless And Eternal

 I Have Opened My Eye To See More in What was Once Simple and Boring Everyday life.

I Realized How Lucky We Are, Surrounded By Nature’s Bounty In Peaceful Vancity.
