Continuing the unrestrained and challenged attitude, Wu reinterprets the Greek and Roman myths through watercolor. Taking form from the paintings of old masters, Wu excludes the mythical doctrines but retains the realistic life. The unrestricted nature of watercolor provides a space for imagination, compared with oil, introduces an alternative perspective.
The Female Image by the Female Artist
Compared with the classic illustration of a female figure, ignorant and pure, Wu presents a human with feelings. When facing with sickness, death and romance in life, women might fear, worry and laugh. The female images by a female artist are about feminism, but also about one’s responsibilities for the world and society.
