Artist Yi-ting Wang utilizes natural materials to explore the essence of life and the exchange and circulation of all visible and invisible energy. She uses painting as a way to reshape and capture objects’ present images. Through the repeating process of construction and deconstruction, Yi-ting thickens the shapes of natural objects. She infuses her energy into the withering objects, and thus creates a new state of being for the objects. In Chinese philosophy, pine trees are highly regarded, even in the domain of contemporary Asian aesthetics. Yi-ting’s curiosity for pine trees started with the common sight of pine tree plantations in rural areas of Taiwan.
