大河美術 River Art:【蕭勤作品收藏展】

我們是誰?生命的意義是什麼?這兩個巨大無解的問題,是許多哲學家與藝術家畢生所探討的議題。2015年是蕭勤邁向人生80歲的里程碑,回首看所創下的藝術之路,這位色彩的魔術師用他的毅力與持之以恆的創作感動了無數的收藏家與藝術愛好者。

從老子思想到密宗壁畫,結合繽紛的顏色,蕭勤的創作背後暗藏玄機與冥想的可能性,超越極簡主義的深度,擷取古代人文的智慧結晶,對蕭勤而言,他的創新建構在傳統之上,但他的傳承受到新新事物的洗禮之後已然成為他個人的獨到風味。1990年,蕭勤的女兒莎芒妲在洛杉磯去世,促使1991年開始的「度大限」系列作品,繼續推動藝術家追求生命價值、宇宙價值的核心思維。蕭勤說過:「我本來就不是地球人,我是從外太空來的,如果有機會,我會想要去探索外太空。」

面對生命的豁達以及對宇宙萬物的好奇,蕭勤持續的在時間的漩渦中以他的畫筆探索著,美麗的色彩猶如將萬物蘊含于其中,又在空白中做出虛空與藏物的矛盾與同性質,這是永恆的實驗,是永恆的生命,對他而言,宗教不是界線,而是想象力的起源。

誠摯邀請您與我們一起探索蕭勤的藝術世界,參透宇宙能量中所蘊含的真實生命。

Who are we? What is the purpose of life? These two pivotal philosophical queries have perplexed numerous thinkers and artists. The year of 2015 marks the age of 80 years old for Hsiao Chin, a milestone of the long-living artist, a master of mesmerizing colors who has touched countless art-lovers and collectors with his perseverance and continual creativity.

From the philosophies of Lao Tzu to Tantric murals, underneath Hsiao’s dazzling colors lies the possibilities of meditation and enigmatic riddles, a depth beyond Minimalism that extracted the crystalized ancient intellect, to Hsiao, his innovation was built on tradition, this continuation of the old became his own unique elegance with the modern influences. Hsiao’s daughter Samantha passed away in Los Angeles in 1990, this incited the beginning of his new theme of works titled “The Great Threshold”; a continuance of pursuing the meaning of life and the universe. He once said: “I’m not of the Earth originally, I’m from space. If there’s a chance, I would want to explore space.”

On life, Hsiao has a nonchalant outlook, along with the curiosity of the infinite cosmos, he has been exploring with his paintings in the whirlpool of time. The colors so intense as if comprising the boundless universe within, a complex and paradoxical parallel of emptiness and void, this is a timeless trial, an immortal life, to Hsiao, religion is not a boundary but a beginning of his imagination.

We sincerely invite you to explore the art world of Hsiao Chin with us, realizing the real life contained in the cosmic energy.
