The “Melted Mask” series consists of 100 works, each with black backgrounds and different masks. The theoretical basis comes from the inspiration of Nietzsche and Bakhtin's discussion on the aesthetic significance of masks. Masks can close or distance the differences between people. Although the mask's surface function is to cover up, the humanity is still eager to communicate. Everyone wears a different mask to hide their true self. The dissolution of the mask explains the process of breaking away from the illusion and facing the self. Peace, struggle, awareness... I want to present the individual faces surrounded by the noisy world with the peaceful, desolate and lonely language of painting.
