【王子欣首次個展】T.C. Wang First Solo Exhibition
王子欣 T. C. WANG (B.1967)
Whether by nature or nurture, I seem to have inherited by mother＆#039;s depression. Perhaps that＆#039;s why, late in life, I was drawn to black and white photography, with all its profound intensity. I wished to imitate Mr. Moriyama Daido, one of the most famous B/W Japanese photographers, and to do so I practiced street shots on a daily basis. His rough textured, high-contrast, surrealistic style became my goal. In 2011, I was the curator and exhibitor of the “A Tribute to Moriyama Daido B/W Photo Exhibition" in Taipei. The exhibit, in a way, culminated this phase of my life, which served as my introduction to the creative act.
In 2014, I began working with color. I had no professional training, no formal art education and zero painting experience. With no theory to draw from, I created freely, attempting bold experiments in all sorts of art forms. I made collages, oil paintings, and mixed media pieces utilizing canvas, wood and all kinds of other construction materials. My photographic aims had been specific, but I brought no stylistic focus to these new works. I thought simply of combining colors and lines, in the hope of creating a brand new visual experience with each and every work I completed.
I do not have any grandiose goals for my art; it is not born from a desire to change the world. I make art for the love of art itself— for both the creation and the appreciation of it. I believe art to be a basic human need, like food, air, and water. It is not the domain of a select few, but rather something everyone has a right to. Art can beautify; it can delight; it can move people deeply. And at its best it can connect the viewer with the creative urge itself. Ultimately, I hope my works can express my true feelings, and that viewers will apprehend something of them, whether pleasant or unpleasant. If people are attracted by my work and stop for a few seconds to take it in and create some kind of connection with me, then I will have fully achieved my aim.
