Shirky develops the alternative possibilities of photography and painting by combining two methods in her works. It brings her a chance to reconnect with her body, life, and environment. Other than her interest in gender issue, she also loves to explore the man-made cityscape or objects in our surroundings. They create meaning, warmth, and culture in a city. It could be a brick wall, wooden panels, or glass reflection as the primitive object before she expands my imagination by paint. Each of these elements in her photo carries their own language. Shirky uses painting as the medium to communicate with them as a dialogue between the 2 spaces and self.
