Seven YCH, Taiwanese Artist, literature-award-wining poet/writer, and the curator. He started to practice his modern art photography while he was at the university in the ’90s. He graduated with M.A. in film-directing from Beijing Film Academy in 2002. His photography has been exhibited internationally and has been collected by private corp. and collectors all over the world.
Seven YCH 喜歡探索事物的矛盾之處。他擁抱寒冷中的溫暖，接受混亂中的偶然，從微觀通往宏觀，從確定性中喚起抽象性。他認為唯一能夠實現空虛的是詩意感。近年來，他潛心研究混合內在與外在景觀的新領域，描繪心理狀態的現實，並提出了有趣的無邊際的故事的獨特圖像。
YCH is interested in exploring the contrariety of the objects. He likes to embrace the warmth in the coldness and to accept the serendipity amidst the chaos, to evoke the immensity from the insignificance as well as the abstract from the certainty. He believes the only thing that can fulfill the emptiness is the poetic sentiment. In late years, he dives into a new territory of mixing inner and outer landscapes, depicting the realities of mental state, and comes out with intriguing unique images of spacious stories.
From the exhibited series of works, YCH continues the exploration of “Texture”. He is trying to see through the “Substance” in mankind with the collage images and the poetic shadows. In his images, referring the imagination as the “Texture", lead the viewers to fly effortlessly into a transparent spacious land. From the artist’s point of view, the ability of mankind to imagine can be considered as a marvelous gift that allows us to travel through time and space, from a momento to eternity, from the beginning till the end.
