紐約當代藝術家,奧普海姆(Peter Opheim b.1961-),有著斯堪地那維亞血統(Scandinavia)。他最新的作品帶著一些北歐神話與色彩,無論你知不知道北歐神話,其實都沒關係,奧普海姆的作品始終擁有純粹、天馬行空及療癒感,這正是步調緊湊、生活壓抑的現代人所缺少的。

「噬山者們 Bite the Mountain - Eat the Forest」

現年60歲的奧普海姆,繪畫特色鮮明,容易與先進國家的人產生共鳴,因此展覽邀約不斷,除了美國,還有法國、荷蘭、英國、日本、德國、俄羅斯…等地。

畫中的每一個角色都不重複。

奧普海姆大可以只創造一個角色,然後複製無限多的畫,如此省事多了,但他沒有這麼做。因為,他認為這些角色或精靈,可能存在現實生活中,如同地球上的每一個人,都是上天賜予的美好,一樣擁有獨具的個性及生命故事,沒有重複的人。然而,他也發現社會化後,一群人可能擁有集體意識,被洗腦制約了,以致個人色彩消失,最後失去自我,懷疑個人存在的意義及價值。

無限想像。

現代人的意識被綁架了,失去想像的本能,甚至連”想”的勇氣都沒有了。所以,奧普海姆的每一幅畫的角色,可能是男、女、老、少、人或其他動物,他不具體描繪,任憑我們個人去想像,形成了奧普海姆創作的一大特色。他認為我們都有與生俱來的藝術特質(想像力),如果觀者覺得療癒或共鳴,那可能是從他的作品中找到了與我們對應的「純真」,值得恭喜,並好好珍惜。

他們是生物?人、動物或精靈?就交由觀者自己去定義吧。

奧普海姆(Peter Opheim)的每一件作品都是獨一無二,奇幻象徵。奧普海姆認為這些角色的性格,是積極正面與純粹的,都是地球上最好的典範。

Peter Opheim: Bite the Mountain - Eat the Forest

Artist | Peter Opheim
Duration | June 5 – July 4, 2021
Venue | Powen Gallery ( No.11, Ln. 164, Songjiang Rd., Zhongshan Dist., Taipei City 104, Taiwan / 10:00-19:00 Closed on Mondays )

* In accordance with the latest anti-epidemic measures of the Taipei City Government, Powen Gallery is temporarily closed until June 14. Welcome to view the exhibition online.


Peter Opheim (1961–) is a New York contemporary artist, with ancestors from Scandinavia. His recent works carry the color of mythology of Northern Europe. However, an understanding of the myths in this part of the world is not required to appreciate Opheim’s creation. His works always have a sense of purity, unbridled freedom, and healing. With our lives of daily hustle and bustle and stress, this is precisely what people today need.

Bite the Mountain - Eat the Forest

Opheim is now 60 years old. His paintings are distinctive and unique. As his style easily resonates with people in the developed countries, invitations for exhibitions have continued to roll in from the US, as well as France, the Netherlands, UK, Japan, Germany, Russia, and others.

The characters in his paintings never repeat.

Opheim could have just created a single character and produced an unlimited number of paintings based upon it; this would have saved him a lot of trouble. However, he believes that the different characters and sprites in his creations may exist in real life; like all the people on earth, no two persons are identical. Each has its own aesthetics, granted by God; all have unique personalities and life stories. There are no repeats. However, Opheim has noticed that once people become socialized, groups may possess a collective consciousness, and become constrained by brainwashing, to the point that all the individual color is lost; finally, the sense of self is lost and doubts about the meaning and value of individual’s existence creep in.

Unlimited imagination.

Modern people’s consciousnesses have been kidnapped; they have lost their basic ability to imagine, and even the courage to think. Therefore, every character in his paintings might be male, female, old, young, human, or another animal; he paints without specificity, giving us a license to imagine by ourselves. This forms a major characteristic of Opheim’s works. He believes that we all have inherent artistic qualities (imagination). If the viewer feels the power of healing or resonates with his works, this may be because they have found the “innocence” that belongs to us within his paintings. This is worthy of being celebrated and cherished.

Are the paintings animals, human beings, or sprites? The answers are left to the viewer’s imagination.

Every work by Peter Opheim is unique, and a symbol of fantasy. He believes that the characters have positive and pure personalities; they are the best exemplars on earth.
