Jun T. Lai

 Jun T. Lai born in 1953, received MA degree from Tama Art University, Japan. She participated in several artist exchange programs in the US, France and Switzerland. The experiences from immersing in these countries expanded her horizon. In the past 40 years of journey, her experiments and renovation helped to develop the diversity of materials used in her art work, including mixed media painting, sculpture, installation, conceptual and performance art

         The context of her art career is practicing her life through art, from the spiritual concept of minimalism to exploring the state of inner existence, and even the social issues of public art. The connection between the island, ocean and earth, forming the cultural context of ocean aesthetics and it always reflected her aesthetic pursuit on liberalism. Since 2000, "Wonderland" has been developed as the main topic of Jun’s art. Under the subtopics of Youth, Islands, and Oceans, she has been constructing context of individual and Taiwanese subjectivity.

         Her vigorous strength and passions for life can be seen from her over 100 exhibits in Taiwan, Japan, the US, Australia, France and Switzerland. Founder and Director of Studio of Contemporary Art(SOCA); Associate Professor of Institute of Aesthetics and Art management, Nanhua University, Taiwan; Director of Woman Art Association, Taiwan.
