wen gum gum / wen chia-ning
wen gum gum is a Taiwanese artist, graphic t-shirt designer and zine publisher.
she is specialized in painting and moving images.
her observation focuses on how the media manipulates public ideology and transmits messages through the use of visual images.
she uses the image as a tool for self-introspection and outlets, interweaving inner spirituality, the world, and the internet, with absurdity as an inevitable adornment to the process of making the work. she is concerned with the way in which mass media portrays characters, particularly in relation to the narrowing of gender roles.
