Lives and works in Taipei

Joyce Ho received her M.A. in studio arts from the University of Iowa. She is an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis on painting, installation, and performance. With an illusion rich in light and shadow, the artist aims to integrate the deconstructed movements and fragmented slices of daily routines to convey an intimate, yet alienated tension between people and reality. The artist’s work simultaneously captivates and confronts viewers, rendering the quotidian action depicted in her work as a momentary ritual.
