展覽簡介|

“穿越時空,是結束,也是開始。嘴邊殘留的牛奶,是童年的香甜。

而我們都是多種口味的牛奶。”

本展是由五位截然不同的高中藝術家所共聯合展出的畫展。我們以 “多種口味” 作為我們的主軸,藉此表現出此展的各個藝術家所呈現的無論是作品或是心境都是迥然不同的。因為在相同學校及有相同興趣的緣分下,能聚在一起舉辦一個充滿各種『味道』的藝術展。 五位創作家包含有水彩,服裝設計,麥克筆,書法,色鉛筆及攝影的創作等。在判然不同的創作外表下,我們所擁有唯一同樣的特點就是我們都是同籃共濟,等著被發送到遙遠的未知的牛奶。

『 花 』是一個隨處可見的東西,但是他卻給人帶來很多背後的意義。例如各種花有它所代表的花語。花也可以是一個人對另一個人的愛,不論親情,友情,或愛情。 所以我把我的每個作品都與花作為一個特定的聯結來說故事。 我的作品包含很多不同的議題,用花來當作與觀眾最主要的共同語言,不論是象徵美,大自然,純真,愛,我都希望觀眾能藉由不同的角度去理解不同背後的含義。這也是我把物件畫的寫實但其關係卻抽象的一大原因。

『 Flower 』is an object that you can see anywhere in your life, but it actually symbolizes a lot of meanings. For instance, different types of flower have their own meanings. Flowers can be a symbol of one’s love for another, no matter it is between one and his or her family, friends, loved one or even country. I include flowers in all of my artworks in order to create a connection . My artworks are based on many different kinds of issues.

學校書法相關活動

陰陽互濟,是一種美感的表現,是一種時代的融合,更是一種生命的體悟。全脂牛奶每一口都濃郁香甜,含在嘴裡聞到的卻是一股淡淡的幽香,便似行書中豐滿的筆鋒下暗藏著帶白的輕掠,韻味無窮。全脂牛奶是小時候在學校的必需品,每日少量的長年累積化為成長的關鍵,而現在在家偶爾暢飲一兩杯,頗有令人微醺的效果。書法內容也是一般,選材於必讀經典中的精華與現代詩作清新淡雅的整體,令人得以乘書法之舟飄越時間的長流。全脂牛奶雖容易使人發胖,但適當的消化與運動的代謝反而能讓人攝取到對身體有益的營養。這些作品也是如此,看著看著或許會悲情填膺,抑或憤世嫉俗,抑或不滿於現況,但唯有經過生活的體證才能化負面的情緒為心境提升、闊達的動力。

The combination of yin and yang is an artistic expression, a fusion of eras, and an enlightenment of life. Every mouthful of whole milk is richly satiating in taste yet emits but a light fragrance when held in the mouth, just as how the semi-cursive style is boldly thick in some strokes while subtly indistinct in others, delivering an inexhaustible charm. Whole milk was a childhood necessity in school; the yearly accumulation of daily morsels turns into the key to growth. Now, a casual cupful or two at home have the relieving effect of slight drunkenness. The content of calligraphy pieces are also so: the extracts that range from the essence of the must-read classics and from the elegant entirety of modern poems allow one to embark on the vessel of calligraphy that drifts in the infinite river of time. Although whole milk tends to make one fat, adequate digestion and the metabolism facilitated by doing sports can help to consume salutary nutrition from the milk. The same paradox dwells in these calligraphy works: looking at them might bring sorrow, skepticism, or discontent, but only through real-life experiences will these negative emotions become the momentum to elevate and inspire.

透過我的作品,我希望呈現一個不一樣的視角及思考模式給觀眾:是不是有一個可能,平常我們最常忽略、視為理所當然的物件,在我的影像卻能畫出一幅和諧的畫?陳年的電器開關、一面老舊且或許即將走入歷史的牆等等,都是我放在一系列影像裡的元素。又,是不是有另一種可能:平常最受大眾矚目的藝術作品,在我的影像裡卻只是配角?另一系列作品『美術館』,即為這個想法的實際作品。對我來說,我透過攝影在現實生活中構圖創作,鏡頭像是我意識的延伸,我希望能透過我的影像創造新的可能。

I would like to put forward a different perspective to my audience: Is it somehow possible, that the objects we tend to ignore in daily life, such as light switches, outputs, or even an old wall, render decent compositions in my images? Or, is it possible that the iconic art pieces turn out not being the focus, for once, in my images? For me, photography means drawing/creating art pieces with a camera in real life, and I hope I can create new possibilities through my images.

創作理念
骷髏是支撐身體的支架。有了它才可以直立向前,邁向生命的道路。「骷髏」代表著生與死;我是這麼相信的。在這社會裡有許許多多的偏見,像是膚色、長相、和身材。在骷髏裡卻看不到這些,因為它是生命最原始的樣貌。骷髏也是生命的盡頭 – 死。它代表著最終生命已殆盡而回到大自然的原體。生與死聽起來是多麼地衝突,但對骷髏而言又是多麼地相似。我選擇骷髏為創作的中心就是因為它獨特的雙重涵義與代表。這次創作的作品中我也納入了許多我環台一個月所體會的人情溫暖和啟發;把所看到的融入我對於骷髏的理念因而產生了ㄧ趟奇幻旅程。第一次深刻認識自己的家鄉⋯台灣,我的家真美⋯⋯

Skeleton is the structure that holds the body, and enable us to walk onto the path of life. “Skeleton” represents both life and death; this is what I believe. In today’s society, there are many prejudices such as skin color, appearance, and body shape. In skeleton, however, you can’t see those, because it is the original appearance of life. Skeleton is also the end of life – death. It represents the original form of body when life is gone and goes back to the nature. Life and death sounds very different, yet in skeleton, they are very similar. The reason I chose skeleton as my main theme is because of skeleton’s unique double-meaning and representations. In these artworks, I also incorporated many inspirations and people’s kindness I had in my one-month trip around Taiwan, merging what I saw into my theory of skeleton and creating a Fantasia. This is my first time truly understanding my home…Taiwan, my home is so beautiful…..

「生」所代表的意義非常廣泛,然而在這廣大的解釋中, 「生命」裡所經歷的「不同階段」卻最能反映我的想法。我想藉由現在有所成長的我,回顧在不同時期的我所呈現的自己。

The word LIFE itself has a lot of meanings. In my point-of-view, life means what a person has been through throughout different stages of life. All these pieces that I’m exhibiting in this exhibition are a reflection of myself during different stages of life.
