Installation View

The driving force in Pohan Wu’s work is the way sensory experiences affect our states of mind, especially those experiences associated with music, social environments and intra-personal communications. This four year long survey has resulted in series including “Music as Muse”, “A Lucid Dream”, “Intervening Variables” and “White Noise”. Nine pieces from which are selected to take part in this exhibition.
One of his major concerns is with visual art as a vehicle to examine multi-sensory perceptions. Consequently, he has continually added project-driven means such as abstraction and collage to his lens-based practice in order to find different perspectives into these subjects.

Wu believes an artwork is a metaphysical variation of reality and that good art should ultimately be therapeutic to possess the mystical quality of remedying the shortcomings in life. To this end, how his art is consumed and received is always just as important as how it is produced.

Pohan Wu was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan and lives in Toronto, Canada.
