1070 Notes

Whether working in painting, installation or sculpture, Joyce Ho tinges her work with an acrid hue of cadmium yellow. This is not a cheery, sunshine yellow but a color that creates an atmosphere of anxiety surrounding Ho’s isolated, downtrodden figures. Since we featured her in Hi-Fructose Vol. 23 in 2012, Ho has completed several new paintings, as well as a video installation that was shown in Taipei. A sculpture of a house drowning in yellow-hued wax, the installation contained a video playing inside the doorway of the house of a woman telling a story of a personal incident that lead her to become paralyzed. Ho’s work is cathartic, though it is far from optimistic. Through her creative process, the artist deals with the loneliness and anxiety of feeling like an outsider in both her adoptive home in the U.S. and her native Taiwan. Take a look at some of Ho’s work here: http://hifructose.com/2013/08/20/interdisciplinary-artist-joyce-ho-depicts-loneliness/
