ANNIE HSIAO-CHING WANG
Annie Hsiao-Ching Wang received her practice-based PhD in Art from the University of Brighton (UK). She has been enthusiastically and intensively studied on the issues related to women's identity, creativity and visual culture in her artwork and teaching. She specializes in the art of photography, oil painting and mixed media. Currently, she is not only a professional artist and a director of Ching Tien Art Space, but she is also an assistant professor at the Department of Arts and Design, National Dong Hwa University.
Since Ms. Wang’s successful exhibition of “Wedding Process” at Taipei Fine Arts Museum in 1997, when she began to garner the attention of art critics and curators, she has been featured at several solo and group exhibitions in Taiwan and England. In 2002, she was selected as the “New Generation Female Artist of Image Art” in the book, The History of (Contemporary) Taiwan Women Artists. In 2011, she was proudly awarded the “Outstanding Alumni” from the University of Taipei.
Ms. Wang’s series of artwork created from her personal experience of motherhood, has been applauded and admired by international art circles since 2007. She was invited to exhibit her work at 2007 Manchester Photography in United Kingdom, 2012 The International Festival of Contemporary Photography at Novosibirsk State Art Museum in Russia, Yes Taiwan: 2012 Taiwan Biennial, 2013 Ulsan International Festival in Korea, 2018 Kaohsiung Photo and 2018 Taipei Art District Festival in Taiwan. Because Ms. Wang was chosen for “Judge’s special recommendation” by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Taiwan, her artwork was selected to represent Taiwan for traveling exhibitions around the world between 2014 and 2016. In 2018, her artwork series, “The Mother as a Creator” went viral and raised a multi-national echo of interest through internet. Two major newspaper outlets, Beijing Youth Daily (China) and Apple Daily (Taiwan), took notice and wrote reports and published them in very large layouts.
