Ching Wen Tsai has been exploring the body-mind-spirit theme for years. Her work intends to serve as a medium for the public to become more aware of the mystery of the spiritual world. Her works reflect on the nature or spirit of things, but also on the objects themselves. She seeks to describe the essence of things, but also the appearance or surface of them. Through art, she transmits the energy of spirituality to the viewer, and reflects her inner vision of nature, human beings, animals, mysticism and more. She questions society’s beliefs through various aspects of her work, striving to provide various ways of interpreting and viewing her works beyond the stereotypical biases of the viewer. Based on the concept of destroying stereotypes, her use of media is varied. In her view, art should be wide open to contain different media. Playing with media through art is reflection of the spiritual world, which contains not only the idea of the material, but also the knowledge of its essence. Altering the definition of materials is one of the ways she can increase her audiences’ awareness of different possibilities.
