Current period is a unique era. While people enjoy the convenience in life brought by tech-nology,psychological disturbance and apprehension accompany with advancement of society are seriously threatening survival of human beings.Post-modernism,arising from 70’ in 20th century till today without sings of fading, adds bit favor of reminiscent history into modernism and searches for anciern spirit of humanism to make up shortcomings of western civi-lization of materials.
Such a phenomenon is reflected in the trend of contemporary art. While art forms of all styles were once been through and died out, artists could only expect to find possible right angle to enter and explore by reviewing every pen craft in the history of art. It is to blend per-sonal life experience of the artist into his creation of art in parallel, creating art in such a way that it asserts personal signature as well as presents contemporary spirit and interfaces with history.
Being guided by such thinking, I went from ancient fresco to the adoption of meaning of western and eastern spiritual civilization. And by using symbolic denotations, creatures in Mother Nature and events in daily life are becoming the medium through which personal lan-guage in painting is best expressed. The exhibition”rock, cave, floater, history” held in Provincial Art Gallery Tai-Chung (Now it is renamed National Art Gallery), was based on such a tachniqe in 1999. At the initial stage of improvisation of this series.”endurance, obscurity, reflection, revival”, I was smitten by 911-attack of terrorism and my beloved father’s pass-away. A sense of feeling of suspiration grew out of the transience of life. These emotions down and in depth were naturally transformed and mingled into different scenes of creations in the system, while facing the moment of improvisations. Unclothing the disguise of art form of multi-oriented medium, it points direcly to the loft presentation of contemporary spirits of humanism.
The phrase,”endurance, obscurity, reflection,revival”,was a restructure of a set of words created by myself to correspond to the connotation brewed inside and sophistication of the peri-od embedded in paintings, meaning further, obscure, re-seeable,and rebirth. Through interpre-tation of paintings, these originally mysterious, profound, and abstruse wordings are surprising-ly able to lucidly present the inner image while in painting.
Back to list
My paintings always have the touch of techniques for realism, connotation of surrealism, and spiritual guidance of Pittura Metafisica Artist, furthermore,are even directly categorized as surrealism. Along with the appeal of contents and theoretic base of”endurance, obscurity, reflection, revival”,intention of my creation out of clearness has early become a kind of’sureal-ism without sub-conscience and intuitively gone beyond the thoughts of improvisation of surre-alism.
It took 4 years to come out with the work exhibited at this time. This paint book is com-prised of works for 30 pieces, to which I gave all out efforts personally. Your comments are highly appreciated and enthusiastically expected. At last, I would like to sincerely thank my col-leagues and instructors who have been accompanying along with me on the road of art. In memory of my beloved father, I would like to also dedicate this collection to him and may him rest in peace.
