Will Yu

Taiwan, 1977



Will Yu 尤瑋毅 1977. 01. 31

I’m come from Taiwanese artist, WIll Yu (尤瑋毅). The creation of human nature on the subject of life philosophy is my artistic work for many years. I think that life is a very important matter, and art is a secondary issue. Because if you seriously think about all the problems in life, your artistic creation will naturally be strong. However, art must be “sincere”.

Artist Statement

A highly-reputed ancient Chinese philosopher, Laozi, once put down:

’’Observe your mind by introspection, and see there is no mind;
then observe the body, look at yourself from without, and see there is no body;
then observe others by glancing out afar, and see there are no beings.
Once you have realized these three,
you observed emptiness!’’

Nothing is tougher than waving goodbye; pain always throbs us when we leave the environment, the things, even the people we used to be familiar with. We human beings tend to indulge ourselves in our comfort zones in content; living in there happily forever seems wonderful. However, this plays the role of shelters as well as obstacles to our success. Thus, ‘’leaving’’ becomes a must-do for humankind to integrate things going on around us. Only when we leave our ‘’shadow’’, the comfort zone that provides us a sense of security, can we truly challenge ourselves to go beyond our potentials; only when we force ourselves to stand away from where we used to belong to can we see through our deficiencies.
