MEI-FANG CHIANG Artist statement So come out, grab a handful of greens and sunlight. Place them in a piece of aluminum. And let them speak. Infusing colors into metal, my intention is to polish the expression of materials, bring it to a subtle balance between sense and sensibility, then search for possibilities of jewelry design. The everyday-use experience of the wearer is one of my major concerns. I would like to connect the unique emotion between jewelry and its owner ： while the work's concept embodies the user experience, a new object/subject relationship is created. Meanwhile I go back to life itself, continue observing the land, the nature and people so as to return to the practice of physical labor, which is the very basis of crafting.
