Exhibition of Tsai Wei-Cheng

藝術家蔡尉成,近二十年來以西遊記中孫悟空這個經典人物來作為他作品的題材,「72系列常與變」的系列作品中,充分表現他幽默、詼諧又內斂的雕塑語言,也展現出七十二變精彩的生活哲學創意,成功地將題材內容與造型思維巧妙相融。藝評經常形容藝術家蔡尉成是一位以「悟道」的角度來看待生命的雕塑家,在這幾十年的創作生涯中,不斷地與自我、作品對話,將內心對萬物的感受,轉化為創作能量,投注於每一件作品當中,在這瞬息萬變的時代,心仍是一切的主宰,唯有安住內心,才能自由自在的去面對外在的困境,達到無我的境界。

Tsai Wei-Cheng has made the classical figure of Sun Wukong (Monkey King) from Journey to the West as the main theme of his works in the past two decades. The Seventy-two Normal and Transformation series of works expresses not only the full performance of his humorous, witty, and restrained language of sculpture but also shows his wonderful philosophy of creativity through seventy-two polymorphic transformations. Tsai Wei-Cheng successfully blended the subject matter with formative thinking in this series. Art critics often describe Tsai Wei-Cheng as a sculptor with an enlightened perspective. In the past few decades of career, Tsai Wei-Cheng has constantly conversed to himself and his works, transforming his feelings for everything into his creative energy for each piece. In this rapidly changing era, the heart is still the master of everything. By feeling peace in the heart, one can face external difficulties with ease and reach the threshold of transcendence.

1971年出生於台中的藝術家蔡尉成,個性不喜拘束與造作、喜愛多變、樂於嚐試,這也成了其創作方向。畢業於大甲高中美工科,師承謝棟樑,有別於一般傳統木刻、佛像雕塑,他的雕塑風格更加地貼近民眾,且饒富趣味,而作品也堅持東方神秘含蓄的精神,將和諧溫潤的銅及剛毅冰冷的不銹鋼兩種材質完美的結合,作品表面涂刷的紋理有華麗時尚的烤漆也有近似潑墨斑駁的歲月痕跡呈現,讓絢麗與樸實的質感,得以自在巧妙地相融。每一個階段的每一件作品,都代表著藝術家蔡尉成對人生的不同體悟,「72系列常與變」的系列作品,可以說是他至今著墨最深的主題,孫悟空幻化成多變的神行百態,表達出藝術家積極豁達的生命態度。

Born in Taichung in 1971, Tsai Wei-Cheng does not like being restrained and contrived, but he loves being flexible and open, qualities which have become the direction for his creativity. He graduated from National Ta Chia Senior High School and studied under Hsieh Tung-Liang. Unlike traditional wood engraving and Buddha sculpture, his style is closer to the people and genuinely interesting. He also insists on implicit oriental spirit, perfectly combining the warm harmony of copper with the cold fortitude of stainless steel. His works are painted with baking enamel and mottled ink to show traces of time, so that beauty and simplicity can blend subtly and unrestrainedly. Every stage of each piece represents a different contemplation of life. Seventy-two Normal and Transformation could be his deepest efforts. The Monkey King transforms into varied forms, expressing the artist’s positive and open-minded attitude toward life.

2016年藝術家蔡尉成的最新系列作品「天空系列」,將雲朵的象徵融入其中,並於新加坡藝術登陸博覽會搶先曝光,雲朵象徵著自由的意念,而自由一直是蔡尉成作品裡一個重要的語彙與符號,也是傳遞無限能量的元素,同時象徵著他追尋著自由的意念,不畏障礙、風雨,以堅定的步伐緩緩前進,將他獨特的創作語言呈現於大家面前,希望每個人面對生活挑戰與衝擊時,都仍然保有清澈的思緒,擁有面對困難的勇氣。「天空系列」作品中包含了「六感」創作,在創作的過程中,藝術家嘗試將不鏽鋼、銅等原有的基本創作媒材,尋找出嶄新的元素,抽離原本的固有僵化,將六感的主題發揮淋漓盡致,延伸出更多的創作視角,同時也表現出他獨特的創作脈絡,讓作品散發沁人心脾的能量。

Tsai Wei-Cheng’s latest series of works in 2016, Sky, integrates the symbol of clouds and was first exhibited at Art Stage Singapore. Clouds symbolize free will, and freedom has been an important aspect of language and symbol in Tsai Wei-Cheng’s works. The clouds also symbolize elements that give infinite energy, and the artist’s will to pursue freedom. He is not afraid of obstacles and difficulties, and moves forward with a steady pace. He openly presents his unique language of creation, hoping that everyone can have a clear mind and the courage to face the challenges of life. The Sky series includes Six Senses, in which Tsai Wei-Cheng searches for new elements in basic materials such as stainless steel and copper. His goal is to eliminate the materials’ inherent rigidity and fully express the theme of six senses, extending his creative perspective, demonstrating his unique creative context, and enabling his works to exude refreshing energy.
