Cho, Hui-Chin

Portfolio of the week

Tell us a bit about you…

My artist’s name is: Cho, Hui-Chin (my first name is Hui-Chin and Cho is my surname; I follow the East Asian name order as my artist pseudonym.)

 

Raised in a multicultural ambience, the Taiwanese ethnicity and the deep influences of the culture surrounding Japanese anime and manga, and Chinese aesthetics have shaped the enticing space, galvanising into my inspiration. I studied at Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) during the period 2014-2018, and currently live and work in London whilst I will be doing MA Painting at Royal College of Art from 2019 to 2021.

 

My works are sort of the experimentation which engage with deconstruction of the Binary opposition in terms of the relationship between life and death; generally speaking, human give superiority to life rather than death. My idea assumes that all materials, motifs or colours within binary oppositions could be analysed and criticised in all their manifestation, making alterities. The leathers would be deconstructed into the metaphor of zooming in the figurative iconography, and the iconography deconstructed into grotesque motif is transformed a new symbolisation. My intention is to create the perception of ‘a dream within a dream’ meaning that deconstruction is happening on the leathers whilst viewers analysing the works as a process is the action of deconstruction.

What is your next creative project?

I have been working on collecting/searching the vintage/antique leathers as the crucial materials. Materiality is an important aspect in my works with animal by-products such as leather forming parts of the configurations, symbolising creatures as life which once existed namely the ambiguous existences in between life and death. However, I came across a few controversial questions doubting me that “would ‘using leathers’ encourage people to manufacture more brand-new leathers?” Absolutely I'm very much against the idea of using brand-new leathers/furs by hurting the innocent animals. This is why I insist on spending times collecting and using ‘vintage’ and ‘antique’ leathers/furs, which were sacrificed during the period of 1920s - 1960s, as the main materials in my works.

 

In my most recent works, I have been using the vintage leathers as the canvas which are considered as a concrete space or could be deconstructed into the metaphor of zooming in the figurative iconography as the skin. And the intention of my most recent works is to create the perception of ‘a dream within a dream’ which means that the patterns and images are being deconstructed on the leather which is being deconstructed whilst the behaviour of viewers who are thinking the arrangements of the works as a process is the action of deconstruction

How would you describe your work?

I very often postulate that painting and sculpture are the same references as an ambiguity in the concrete dimensional presences, which expand from their dimensions with layers of symbolism and meaning conveyed through a variety of compositions and motifs; materiality is an important aspect in my works with animal by-products such as leather forming parts of the configurations, symbolising creatures as life which once existed namely the ambiguous existences in between life and death. As a result, my artworks approach the experimentation of deconstruction, establishing an inner equilibrium between rational analysis and sentimental interpretations. By exploring these, the processes of deconstruction ubiquitously form personal perceptions for the individual, unconsciously presenting intimate opinions namely the desire, fetish, ambivalence, sadism, obsession or authentic evocations. 

 

I am happy to be participating in the 3-day-exhibition, which held by Portfoliobox and ImageNation, at Galerie Joseph Turenne in Paris on 9th-10th-11th November as a group show with a lot of talented photographers whilst there will be my personal exhibition as the feature included in this show! 

 

In my personal exhibition, I am trying a new subject matter of ‘deconstruction’ in between the relationship of photography and the two-dimension and three-dimension; my works will be presented the most important idea ‘deconstruction’ of the Binary opposition in terms of the relationship between photography (the metaphor as ‘death’) and tactile works (symbolising ‘life’).

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

There are lots of great artists and we would seek for various artists during different periods of time. Now I might say James Ensor, Joseph Cornell, Hannah Höch. I am often inspired by the collage artworks of Hannah Höch; the arrangement of spatial relationship in object/collage artworks of Joseph Cornell; the wallpaper of my mobile is the painting - The Bad Doctors (1892) by James Ensor, although he finished it ages ago, you can’t say this painting is not ‘ ontemporary’ either. I do enjoy the works which are chronological and narrative with grotesque human figures. With a variety of impacts, I have been unconsciously creating my own style as a result after being influenced by different style/year/materials of artworks/artists.

 

 

What is your favourite coffee space in London?

I am genuinely pleased to randomly grab a cup of coffee somewhere around my studio. So to speak, the ‘favourite coffee space’ will be my studio.

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I DO love Portfoliobox. This is because the flexibility of templates helps me organise massive images easily, and the support systems have done their job well; every single time I came across difficulty when I am sorting out the website, the Portfoliobox support staff always get back to me very soon and help me solve the issue. And I feel that Portfoliobox really cares what I am concerned about my website!

Núria Farré

Portfolio of the week

October 26, 2018

 

Who are you?

My name is Núria Farré, I'm a painter born in Barcelona (Spain) in 1992. I've done solo exhibitions in cities as Barcelona, Lleida, Murcia, San Francisco and Taichung. Also colective exhibitions in galleries from countries as Spain, United States or Taiwan. I've also participated in art fairs as Kölner Liste (Cologne, Germany 2014), Art Madrid (Madrid, Spain 2017), Young Art Taipei (Taipei, Taiwan 2017) or Keyhole Art Fair (Murcia, Spain 2018).

 

My paintings, sometimes hyperrealistic, talk about my worries as a young woman: anxiety, stereotypes, melancholy, the family, memories and the identity.

 

At the beginning of my career I was seeking for a liquid atmosphere that I used to talked about a duality between life and death, or between a solid and a liquid state. Years after, I started exploring self-portrait from a melancholic point of view. 

 

 

Portfoliobox

 

 

What is your next creative project?

I'm working on a series called The Matter of the Memory, where I try to understand my present through my memories from the past, so I use images from my family albums to create interesting visual collages with oil painting. I will show part of this series in my next solo show in Taichung (Taiwan) with the gallery Yiri Arts this October 13th.

How would you describe your work?

I would describe my work as intimate, sometimes hard and painful, sometimes peaceful but disturbing. In my work there are always unanswered questions, the same questions that impulse me to try to understand the world.

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

Between the contemporary living artists some of my biggest influences are Jenny Saville, David Hockney, Anish Kapoor, Gerhard Richter, Jordi Fulla and Jaume Plensa. All of them have an inspiring and influent work and awesome careers that are big examples for me.

 

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

I would like the viewers to take all the questions that I propose in my work and try to answer them or at least to think about it. And of course, it would be awesome if we could have a debate about them.

 

 

 

 

What's your favourite coffee place in Barcelona? 

I think I'm the only human being in this planet who dislikes coffee, so I don't go to cafes. But what I do is to eat lunch everyday in the same place. I go to a small restaurant near my studio that is called La Granjeta del Raval which is a family business and they treat you as if you were their own daughter. Also the food is like your own mom's food.

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

What I like about Portfoliobox is that with a very small effort you can have a very professional website. It's very intuitive for users and very customizable. It lets me have a portfolio website where my clients and the galleries can go and take a look at my work without knowing a thing about programing.

Portfolio of the week

September 25, 2018

 

Who are you?

I am a Japanese graphic designer who used to be based in Tokyo and currently based in Berlin, Germany.

I mainly design books, besides magazines, identities, advertisement, and more.

 

What is your next creative project?

I am working on some Japanese books projects and some brochures for concerts now. And planning for a self-initiated project inspired by life in Berlin and Latin typesetting.

 

 

 How would you describe your work?

I design thinking deeply about each text content, then progressing with the design by interpreting it sensuously or philosophically.

I like to explore and experiment with typesetting to create beautiful, playful, and new designs.

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

I worked for Tobufune, Japanese book design agency until last June, so my previous boss Shohei Oguchi influenced me most directly. Also, I am always inspired by many great graphic designers…like Bunpei Yorifuji, Masayoshi Nakajo, Dick Bruna, Alexander Rodchenko...in both aesthetic and philosophical way.

 

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

I am glad to be taken anything away. I think it might be interesting that Japanese typesetting mixed with Latin typesetting or using way of illustrations. Personally, my wedding project succeed to make our guests enjoy, and it was amusing, so I am delighted if someone gets inspired by it.

 

 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I love it because I could make my website neat and beautiful without difficulty. You can handle it sensuously even if you don’t know about coding or programming very well. I was a little bit in a hurry to make my site, and I tried other several website making services, but I always hit the wall at some points. On the other hand, Portfoliobox led me to a goal very smoothly. It knows users insight very well.

Who are you?

I'm Luka and I'm a photographer. I come from Slovenia and currently live in Vienna, Austria. I've moved to Vienna in the end of 2011, where I started studying architecture. But the main reason for my move to Vienna was BMX and with it related photography. I wanted to move to some place where the BMX scene is bigger than in Slovenia, so I have more possibilities to photograph and more riders to work with. Vienna showed as a good choice, since I quickly improved my work and got an offer from German BMX Rider magazine, to work with them.

What is your next creative project?

My next bigger project will be creating of 2nd issue of Hinterland zine. Hinterland is a zine about BMX, skateboarding and art. I'm running this zine together with two friends of mine.

 

How would you describe your work?

I most of the time shoot BMX in the streets of Vienna. As an architecture student, I try to enrich all those action shots with monumental touch of architecture and somehow connect those two different fields. I'm also a big enthusiast of mountains and landscape photography.

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

My biggest idol is definitely the legendary BMX photographer Jeff Zielinski, but I'm also really inspired by French photographer Fred Mortagne. I like how he connects skateboarding with architecture and his play with light and shadows.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I really like the flexibility of Portfoliobox. I like how you can create almost any design you want and you aren't limited to one particular template. I also like how fast you can make changes on your website and that the page for mobile devices is created automatically. That saves quite a lot of time.

Who are you?

My background is fashion design, having studied a masters in fine art (fashion) in Poland, since moving to Australia and continuing my profession in the land down under. I have worked with some of Europe's largest brands and was on the team who designed Poland's Olympic team uniforms while specialising in activewear and womenswear. My passion is commercial fashion which enables me to deliver great designs to everyone, not just a select few. My love for activewear originated from the ability to bring new technologies into the fashion industry while allowing us designers to be super creative.

What is your next creative project?

To master fashion photography. 

 

 How would you describe your work?

I started to work for a Sydney based company with two sister brands where I take care of not only fashion design but also graphics, eCommerce and Social Media content. It is this role which sparked my passion for fashion photography.

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

In activewear has always been Lacoste runway shows.

For womenswear and accessories, it's hard to point to one influencer but Sonia Rykiel has always been an important influencer for me,

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

How activewear due to its intricate design and advanced technology has influenced the entire industry and streetwear. That this type of design takes incredible discipline and has far-reaching implications.

Yukinori Hasumi

Portfolio of the week

July 23, 2018

 

Who are you?

I'm a freelance photographer based in Tokyo. At the age of 30, I quit my job in the construction industry, and devoted myself to photography full-time. 

 

I mainly take pictures of urban landscapes and architecture. At the age of six, I was captivated by “the chaos of Gotham City” depicted by producer Tim Burton in “Batman”, the first movie I ever saw. Sometime later, I became interested in the cityscape of New York, and now I travel there once a year to take aerial photographs.

 

Most of the pictures of night views that I take were inspired by illustrations from Gotham city.

 

As I am still a fledgling photographer, most of the pictures that I provide are sold via the Getty Images. The pictures that are taken of Tokyo and New York have been published in a wide variety of advertisements and media.

 

What is your next creative project?

This year, I will take aerial night views of my beloved Tokyo.

 

Tokyo is the greatest metropolitan district in the world, as recognized by the United Nations. I would like to communicate its beauty to many people.

 

 


© Yukinori Hasumi

 

 

How would you describe your work?

When I take photographs, in addition to being constantly aware of the need to produce high quality and what the market is looking for, I focus on views of the world and depictions unique to me. As we are now in an age in which job requests come via SNS, uploading pictures to SNS is a daily task.

 

Actually, it is due to SNS that I have received a photography project covering the athletes’ village in the Tokyo Olympics to be held in 2020.

 

Moving forward, in addition to just providing photographs, I am studying a number of fields with the goal that my photography will be able ot draw out the attractive qualities of a number of things, such as people and regions, and architecture.

 

 


© Yukinori Hasumi

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

That would have to be another Japanese photographer Takashi Yasui. He was the second Japanese photographer to have his photographs used for the Apple product wallpaper and he is photographer who has worked on a wide range of projects, both domestically and overseas.

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

I have been taking pictures in Tokyo and New York based on the theme “breath of the city”. Although the city has an inorganic appearance, it is alive, absorbing sunlight and breathing. I want the people looking at these various landscapes, introducing you to the charms of the city, to be filled with a sense of longing and enchantment.

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

More than anything, I feel it has a strong sense of design. It is as if it was a tool made for the creator. I also like the fact that this is very easy to do editing. As I only have a very basic knowledge of programming this is very helpful.

What is your next creative project?

My next creative project is a series of paintings around my female friends, and to portray them as the individuals they are independently from all the clichés surrounding how woman tend to be portrayed in art (nudity as a norm, etc).

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like Portfoliobox because it is so intuitive and the layouts offered are very clean and simple, which I really like.

© Hendrik van Zwol

 

Who are you?

My name is Hendrik and I am 34 years old. About 6 years ago I started photographing during a vacation. When I returned to the Netherlands, I received compliments from many people, which prompted me to spend more time on photography. In recent years I have traveled a lot and my photography has improved more and more. For example, in North Korea I was able to capture street life and in Vanuatu I cloud capture fire-breathing volcanoes. After a world trip of 12 months we arrived back in the Netherlands and moved to a city with different cultures. It therefore seems to me a nice project to be able to capture this.

 

How would you describe your work?

I find it difficult to describe my work. This is also mainly because I am still discovering which style of photography I like. What I find very cool is to use a lot of color in my photos. Think for example of sunrise or sunset.


 


© Hendrik van Zwol 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

Personally, I think Anton Corbijn is a fantastic photographer. This man has been able to capture so many fantastic portraits.

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

I hope that people get excited about my photos and that I can convey to my viewers what I have experienced during my travels.
