    八零年代東南亞在台藝術家特展

    二十世紀的八零年代初,臺灣畫廊已建立經紀代理制度,並一度成為新加波及香港優秀華人藝術家嶄露頭角的地方。成立於1978年的阿波羅畫廊,在八零年代初就開始陸續邀請東南亞優秀的華人藝術家來臺展覽。其中包括嚴以敬、龍思良、陳楚智、蕭學民、凌運凰、余元康。

    嚴以敬(阿虫)從1982年起在阿波羅畫廊陸續舉辦過四次展覽。出生於廣州的他曾是香港知名的政治漫畫家,爾後移民美國,改以阿虫為名發表畫作。他以油畫、水彩以及水墨創作。醉心於風景及勸世畫的他,以藝術創作教導人活出豁達的人生。

    龍思良出生廣州,後移居越南,以僑生身份回臺研習美術,並畢業於師大美術系。從1979-1984年曾受邀在阿波羅畫廊舉辦過三次個展。結合東方水墨之雅與西方水彩之美,畫出屬於他的獨特風格。作品聞名於華人藝術圈,更榮獲無數美術大獎的肯定。早年曾在台視擔任美術指導、聯合副刊畫插畫,並為張秀亞、余光中、古龍等知名作家繪製書封,更被封為「古龍御用封面畫家」。也是知名藝術團體「V-10視覺藝術群」成員。

    畢業於新加坡南洋美專的凌運凰從1979-1983年在阿波羅畫廊舉辦五次個展。他從英國正統技法出發,融合東方風貌的水彩畫風,落筆生動、架構穩練、色彩明快,繪出透明水彩的流暢與澄淨,再以乾式淡彩堆疊,呈現出明暗對比的效果。題材多以生活周遭熟悉的景色為主,搭配慣有的柔和棕褐色調,讓畫面充滿溫馨感。

    曾新加坡文化獎及韓國亞細亞藝術獎的陳楚智於1982-1993年間在阿波羅畫廊共舉辦過三次個展。注重現場寫生的他,多次在世界各地做過寫生考察的他,對臺灣的古厝及老街市集的濃厚鄉土色彩及多樣性最為難忘及感動,於是緊抓起畫筆捕捉這即將消逝的記憶,用他獨有的筆觸、線條、光影及色彩,留住那百年孤寂的滄桑美感。

    曾於1988年在阿波羅畫廊辦過個展的余元康,以現代水彩來創作中國原始文化的題材,這也是藝術家奠定「個人風格」的分野。探索中華民族原始文化(新石器時代),從純樸的造型原理當中探詢人性最純真的情感,得以突破後期形態各異的民族性、地域性所造成的疏離,找到藝術的共同性,也就是人性。並以自我探索出的「接觸面技法」,其技法主要效果是以較豐富和逼真的肌理質感,呈現出重量、粒子及光亮感,使觀者產生平面與立體的空間錯覺,將能更生動地表現出畫面的題材。

    擅長以粉彩作畫的蕭學民,出生於馬來西亞。從1980年至今在阿波羅畫廊舉辦過四次個展。首展除了展出肖像主題的作品,更在展出期間接受預約於現場為人繪畫肖像。不僅用色嫻熟準確,更善用了粉彩輕柔細膩的質感,一筆一畫地勾勒出畫中肖像的面容,張張傳神、自然,有溫度亦有深度,並注入了他個人的浪漫特質。十多年間,於臺灣共畫了一千五百張以上的肖像,寫下了一頁臺灣肖像藝術的歷史。蕭學民曾說:『感恩…沒有臺灣鄉親的支持和鼓勵,我的人生必黯然失色,這裡的每一份恩情,都應該…抱著它,才是我真正的溫暖。』

    阿波羅畫廊在2021年四月以「東南亞八零年代在台藝術家特展」為主題,展出嚴以敬、龍思良、陳楚智、蕭學民、凌運凰、余元康等六位藝術家的作品。

    春意盎然的四月,誠摯邀請您蒞臨欣賞。


    Exhibition Period: 4/03~5/08
    Exhibition Opening: 4/03 (Saturday) 15:00PM



    In the 1980s, Taiwan became an epicentre for emerging Asian artists – particularly those from Singapore and Hong Kong – when its galleries gained renown and recognition in the region. Established in 1978, Apollo Art Gallery began inviting Southeast Asian artists to exhibit with the gallery in the early 1980s. These artists included YIM Yee-King, LONG Sih-Liang, TAN Choh-Tee, SIEW Hock-Meng, LING Yun-Huang, YU Yuan-Hong.

    Now, 40 years later, Apollo Art Gallery will once again display works by these history-defining artists. In a time period when we are being reminded of the ways in which globalisation has influenced the development of art, Apollo Art Gallery has chosen to revisit what is undeniably an important age in which Taiwan emerged as a strong force in the global art community.

    YIM Yee-King – nicknamed A-Chung – has held four exhibitions at Apollo Art Gallery since 1982. Originally from Guangzhou, Yan gained recognition as a political cartoonist in Hong Kong before immigrating to the United States, where he exhibited paintings under the name A-Chung. Working primarily with oil, watercolour, and ink, Yan’s landscapes show the world in an optimistic perspective – a perspective he hopes to impart on the viewer.

    Born in Guangzhou, LONG Shi-Liang moved to Vietnam before eventually coming to Taiwan to study Fine Arts at National Taiwan Normal University. Known for his unique combination of Western watercolours and Asian inks, Long’s works gained much recognition and received many awards. In his early years, he served as art director of Taiwanese Television and provided cover illustrations for numerous notable Taiwanese authors such as but not limited to Zhang Xiu-Ya, Yu Kwang-Chung, and Gu Long – eventually becoming known as Gu’s preferred cover artist. Long was also known as a member of the “V-10 Artist Group.” During his time in Taiwan, he held three solo exhibitions at Apollo Art Gallery between the years of 1979 to 1984.

    A recipient of the Singapore Cultural Medallion and Korean Asian Art Award, TAN Choh-Tee held three solo exhibitions at Apollo Art Gallery between 1982~1993. A master of urban sketching, Tan uses a mixture of Western and Asian styles influenced by his travels abroad to depict the atmospheres of places that move him. Amidst the Taiwanese old streets and neighbourhoods, Tan’s brushstrokes and silhouettes capture an unforgettable sense of nostalgia, his distinct use of colours and composition expressing the timeless beauty of Taiwanese history.

    An alumnus of Singapore’s Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, LING Yun-Huang held five solo exhibitions at Apollo Gallery between 1979 to 1983. Canvassed a warm sepia tone, Ling’s works centre around scenes of daily life. Departing from the orthodox British style, Ling utilises a mixture of Eastern watercolour painting and vivid brush strokes, stacking both thick and translucent applications of watercolour to present a strong contrast of light and dark.

    YU Yuan-Hong, who held one solo exhibition at Apollo Art Gallery in 1988, uses modern watercolours and his personal stye to depict elements of neolithic Chinese culture. Yu experiments his self-developed “surface contact technique” to manifest rich illusions of weight, space, and texture in his paintings. With the concept of humanity as a starting point, Yu’s manipulation of physical planes probe into the common inquiries held by all art – those of human nature’s purest emotions.

    Malaysian artist SIEW Hock-Meng specialises in pastels and portraiture. Since the 1980s, he has held four exhibitions at Apollo Art Gallery. In addition to pre-prepared portraiture exhibitions, he also accepted on-site portraiture commissions at his exhibitions. Siew painted more than 1,500 portraits during his decade in Taiwan, each one implicitly romantic and unmistakably his through their delicate and thoughtful usage of pastels. His portraits are now considered an important part of Taiwanese art history and Siew himself has expressed gratitude for his time in Taiwan, saying that “without the encouragement and support I received in Taiwan, my life would have been much more dull.”
