Wan-Ju’s work is based on the perception of Shadow. In her painting, shadow is more than the identity of the objects, it refers to an individually spaces, and emotions. She has been exploring shadows through colors,  medium, and difference forms of installations. Her work is also focusing on the relationship between shadows and texture where both refer to time’s massage and how people feel, grow, change, influence and perceive an accumulative experience around where we live and visualize.

This experience with art activities influenced her to realize more firmly desire, to move towards artistic creation.
