Introduction of the Series: 
/ Free Association /

Work included in this series “Free Association” are created between 2016 and 2018. As a dialogue to the artist’s self and to the world, Free Association captures the state of minds in the rapidly changing surrounding environment. subjectively, the dialogue is about personal interaction actual places, people and situations. more objectively, it become a voice that interprets various facets of a now inescapable from media and technologies. When creating the composition of a drawings, the development is as fluid and organic as the sharp and unforgiving lines marked by the ink pen. The spontaneity and uncertainty allow the action of drawing itself to become an authentic record of a brainstorming process.

系列介紹:
 /自由聯想/ 

本系列中包含的作品“自由聯想”創作於2016年至2018年之間。
作為藝術家對於自我和世界的對話,“自由聯想”捕捉了周圍環境中快速變化的思想狀態。主觀上,對話是關於個人互動的實際場所,人和情境。更客觀地說,對話成為一種聲音,解釋媒體和技術在各方面不可避免的狀態下的聲音。在創作的構圖時,顯影與由墨水筆的標記呈現,清晰和不可預期的線條自然的流暢。自發性和不確定性使自己腦力激當地記錄著這真實的過程。

Through creating the art within The Free association series, the process gives birth to impressions and stories of imaginary worlds and characters. When stories in the real world are reinterpreted with the language in Wilfred’s art, sometimes serious subject matters metaphorically and become painted objects. These objects are exemplified by the toilets for the hens in an assembly lines in the “Egg Farm,” the deadpan-faced mascots in “Meme Makers,” or the deity-like figure in “Selfie Mike”.  They are all part of a language. This language are composed of motifs that signifies and personify consumerisms, globalisms, emotions and various type of interpersonal relationships.

通過在自由聯想系列中創作藝術,這個過程發想了世界觀以及角色與他的故事。當現實世界中的故事藉由Wilfred的藝術語言來重新詮釋時,有時候嚴肅的主題會受到隱喻並成為繪畫對象。這些元素的例子包括“雞蛋農場”與生產線上的母雞廁所,“Meme Makers”中面無表情的吉祥物,或“Selfie Mike”中的神靈般的形象。它們都是語言的一部分。這種語言主題的構成,詮釋著消費主義、全球主義、情感和各種人際關係。
