This artwork is about Joaquin Phoenix’s play in Joker.
We are born to discover what we really want in our lives and this is definitely a lonely and tough way to go through. As a member of the society we have to fulfill rights and tasks under the name of society frame, and yet we can’t have happiness and a guaranteed future.
Joker once dreamt and imagined him being the happy man he wished to be, despite the darkness of reality set him off even he had put on much effort. Numbers of event had ruined his balance in life and this had dissociated him. However, this dissociation had caused the explosion of his personality and the audience had picked up joy in the chaos.
Before his role in Joker, he played in “You Were Never Really Here”(2018) and his acting was already way beyond Joker’s play. Cinephiles had discussions on his casting as Joker, and so did I. He came into my canvas at the same time with Joker’s release, several artworks came into the world as ‘nerd painting’ is the genre I pursue. It can be said that me myself and the audience, we all are the Joker inside my artwork. It has come to the point to create ‘Joker 2’, and I am both quite nervous and excited for this.
