Trees blur. Buttercups trail yellow smudges. Clouds fog beneath a translucent film. These are the mixed-media landscapes in Borderless Place, which reveal invisible borders within the natural environment as a reflection of the contrast between beauty and reality. Taiwanese artist Chia Yun Wu incorporates photography and printmaking into her practice to question existence, materiality and the human condition. “When working with art, life becomes inspiration, and my life cannot be separated from the place where I was born.” The images stretch the boundaries of reality, focusing on the intersections of freedom and belonging.
