Memory, dream, and transcendental experience are the source of Hung-Ni Wu's work. From this, she develops the survival behaviors observed in the corners of society under the moving path of life, and pays attention to the extension and questions that arise: how are we created, what is the meaning of life; what are its goals and values?
Her artworks depict the relationship between the environment in which the individual responds, and the coexistence of the enormous oppression felt by a group of people. Through the Burden series, she discusses and compares her living environment and her growth experience; observes the appearance of society through the perspective of her own life, her responsibilities and pressures that individuals bear under society, and the hidden class system that pervades the entire system. She explores cultural differences, memories, dreams, and experiences at the emotional level, which are buried in the body and coexist within it. The body, as a carrier of emotions, carries invisible inner pressure and emotions, coexisting to find the value and meaning of life. The atmosphere shrouded in the whole environment is connected by individual murmurs and dilemmas, and how to balance the coexistence between the two to maintain a seemingly stable social image that contains many contradictory emotions.
In Hung-Ni Wu's works, the body is like an organism or a single body that is often used as the main carrier for the art, behind which are dragged the fragments that are constantly multiplying. We are born with the original subject, and our original body is constantly carrying these burdens forward. At the end of the work, it is almost impossible to distinguish the clear boundary between the initial individual appearance and the later entanglement. The inner face representing the ups and downs and restlessness of the pressure is arranged in a dynamic direction outward through brushstrokes, implying that the mind is trying to break through the external environment within the existing framework and restraint.
Through the squeezing and stacking of the mass, the back-and-forth entanglement and intersection and dynamic of the brushstrokes, and the frequency of density generated by each stroke, she expresses the inner emotions of the individual, group, and society. The familiar specific signs and objects, colors and structures are manipulated to transform the objects into clumps. The small clumps in the picture are connected to each other and aggregated into a huge block, echoing the image of the recycled objects being organized into groups. Lines The direction of the brushstrokes is fixed and swaying. The direction of the brushstrokes and the undulations created by the bending and shaking indicate the frequency of bumps on the way to collect items, so that the shape of the mass loses its sharp edges. The finely broken strokes, wrapping around the whole and shaping the main body, also symbolize the complex state of pressure multiplied in the mind.
