采泥藝術:【「觀止無形─謝貽娟、洪藝真、王淑鈴聯展」】

「觀止無形-謝貽娟、洪藝真、王淑鈴聯展」

自從抽象藝術於20世紀的誕生,將繪畫本身自客觀寫實的功能性獨立出來,從此確立繪畫的自律性,也肯認藝術元素「線」、「形」、「色」本身的表現性,不單只是作為再現現實世界的要素。自此,抽象藝術如何跳脫具體的形象,單純以形與色的組合型塑獨樹一格的表現形式,以純粹造型建構關於藝術家自身的宇宙,則成為前仆後繼的抽象藝術家致力研究的課題。

本展「觀止無形」將以謝貽娟、洪藝真、王淑鈴三位傑出抽象藝術家的作品,透過其各擅其長的藝術語彙探究抽象語境的可能性。三位藝術家皆先後於「英國皇家藝術學院(RCA)」深造,奠定其各自的創作理路與發展範疇。洪藝真的創作受到美國「抽象主義」與「極簡主義」的影響,著重材料與形式的單純性,將作品簡化到「顏料、畫框、畫布」三種元素,並透過物件複製與肌理再現,以低限美學的趣味進行個人關於繪畫性與創作本質的哲學思辨與辯證。王淑鈴的抽象作品體現個人沛然無盡的思緒與意念。畫布上的顏料與圖面構成,以大膽且揮灑的筆法搭配氣勢恢宏的構圖,在形的流動與轉化之際,體現藝術家集結東方書法氣韻、民間典故、佛道哲學所交相融合的創作底藴與文化涵養。長期旅居英國的謝貽娟,以其特有的「非空間」創作脈絡,發展個人超越具象、獨樹一格的創作形態。本次展出的「粉末系列」則是始於「之間」開始探索的哲學。在一片湛藍的有無相間中,空亦是滿,滿亦是空,一切是攸關「純粹」與「生命」的探索。「觀止無形」一展將三位台灣傑出女性抽象藝術家,如何在汲取皇家藝術學院的學理養分,結合各自的生命經驗與東方文化涵養,進而發展出獨具個人風格的抽象表現,構成藝術家所欲傳達的意念性與感官性,體現個人畫意與畫境,進而發展抽象藝術更為深入的探索、詰問與開創。

Formless Perfection: Jo HSIEH, Yi-Chen HUNG, Suling WANG-Three Artists from the Royal College of Art


Since the birth of abstract art in the 20th century, painting has exceeded its function of creating objective, realistic representation. Abstract art assures the autonomy of painting and recognizes the expression of "line," "form," and "color" instead of treating them as elements to represent the realistic world. Moreover, abstract artists have also endeavored to free abstract art from concrete images by employing combinations of simple forms and colors to create unique artistic expression and construct individual cosmos of art with pure forms.

On view in Formless Perfection are the artworks by three acclaimed abstract artists, Jo HSIEH, Yi-Chen HUNG, and Suling WANG, who have been exploring the possibility of abstract painting through their distinctive artistic vocabulary. The three artists all graduated from the Royal College of Art (RCA) in the UK, where they established their creative direction and field of artistic development. Yi-Chen HUNG's art emphasizes on the pureness of material and form by simplifying her work to "paint, frame, and canvas," and through reproducing objects and representing different texture, conducts her philosophical and dialectic thinking on painting and its inherent characteristics with the charm of minimalistic aesthetics. Suling WANG's abstract art embodies her unlimited ideas and creative thoughts. With flowing and changing forms, the paint and image on the canvas as well as her bold, freewheeling brushstrokes and majestic, dynamic composition materialize her artistic concept and cultural depth informed by fluid forms of Chinese calligraphic art, traditional folk allusions, and the Buddhist philosophy. Based in the UK, Jo HSIEH is known for her unique artistic conception of "None-Space," with which she has created artworks that transcend concrete representation with distinctive characteristics. The Pigment series on view in the exhibition originates from a philosophical exploration of the "in-between." In between the azure shades, the void is full and the fullness embodies the void—it is an investigation into "purity" and "life." Formless Perfection brings to the audience three outstanding Taiwanese female abstract artists. They have absorbed the academic nourishment of the RCA, and integrated their individual training with their personal life experience and understanding of the Oriental culture to develop highly characteristic styles of abstract expression. Their work conveys their thinking and sensibility, embodies their artistic ideal and conception, and expands the exploration, investigation and horizon of the abstract art.
