Wu Mei-Chi was born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1989. She is an enthusiastic photographer and sophisticated graphic designer. Her photography has been widely known since her school life. In 2017, she was awarded an “outstanding alumni” acknowledgment from her alma mater, National University of Kaohsiung.
Over the past few years, Wu Mei-Chi created a series of still life images which merge various art styles and historical elements. This recent trilogy, “XXY”, “XYX”, and “YXX”, creates a distorted space against common sense by rearranging the structure of space. Using a mirror as the medium to cause variation within the forms of the original materials, the works display changes
of the original objects’ physical properties, as well as their visual forms. They combine two forms of media-- paintings and photographs. First, with geometric segmentation similar to modernist sculptures, and later with highly technical color photo enlargement, a series of saturated, striking images are the end result.
In 2016, she held her first solo exhibition “XXY” (The Space of Things) at NEPO Gallery in Taipei. In 2017, she has shown her new works “XYX” (A Moveable Feast) at Aura Gallery in Taipei.
