The pictures generated by the classical works along art history are being interpreted and consumed in various ways; so much so that the details in the works by those geniuses have become less important in our impression, only the images and the plots remain. From the viewpoint of cyber aesthetics, the painting styles with standard fillet create friendly and relaxing interface to stimulate the user’s desire to click and consume. Interestingly, the term ICON also bears the double meaning of Christian ICON and computer icon; which exactly reflects the flattened attitude of the human towards knowledge and classics. Based on this, I embed the extremely simplified images into visual experience in cyber times. In this exhibition, I continue to focus my vision on the disappearance of “Depth” in classical portrait, to deconstruct the defying of portrait, thus to evoke the audience’s “Gaze” upon the subject one more time.
