Chu Fuchen’s work focuses on how to express the light and shadow we see by using photographic and print media. His work often references how light interacts with man-made architectural structures and explores different ways to observe time. Our sense of the passing of time everyday is related to light.
Fuchen uses photography as a sketch, which leads to a depiction of an unprecise area of light and shadow that sits between photographic purism and post modern photography .
The objects that are the subject of these images, such as stone stairs and geometric shapes of light, simplify the images of architecture. Even the combination of two related photos or duplicated images merged into one assumes the possibility of our vision. He then uses the same image, not just directly turned into a print, but a composition of the image and separates sections of light and shadow apart .By using different materials and skills to achieve imagination based on reality. Through exploring the connection with photography and printmaking ,this project is more concerned about what kind of world we are living in while also improving our observation of light track which affects our life as well.
