賴威宇 Lai Wei Yu  
藝術家賴威宇的繪畫世界,就像費里尼那匹暗藏禍心的木馬,呈現的是一張張千奇百怪的我城眾生相,奇幻誇張的情節,洋溢著叮叮咚咚嘉年華式的歡樂。從早期較為寫實的人物畫,到逐漸走向富幻想、象徵、劇場氣息的創作路線,賴威宇將看似荒謬的事件,以孩子般的遊戲心,將畫布塗抹得像費里尼的彩色萬花筒,邀請觀者進入其中一起狂歡、喧囂,但在陽光照不到的角落,我們同時也看到了人生的無奈與荒涼。

賴威宇的創作人生就如同一部又一部的電影,題材則是成長過程中不斷上演的精彩冒險。所有的希望、失落、驚懼、歡樂,就像不斷變換的蒙太奇,跳脫傳統敘事軸線,自由穿梭現實與夢境之間。藝術家從現實中汲取靈感然後綻放出燦爛的火花,在夢境的霧靄中翱翔以尋找現實的通道,在諷刺的布幕後掩藏一抹同情的悲涼,看似情理之中,卻又是虛構出來的浮世畫卷。也許這世界並不美好,甜蜜的生活下是分崩離析的殘片,於是我們需要電影大口呼吸,於是我們在這裡繼續做夢,以畫筆屠城。

Artist Lai Wei-yu’s world of art is like Fellini’s Trojan Horse, depicting the strange masses in exaggerated festive celebration. Transitioning from realistic portraits to the fantastic, symbolic, and dramatic style seen now, Lai takes seemingly absurd situations and explores them with a childish wonder, creating paintings reminiscent of Fellini’s rainbow kaleidoscopes, inviting viewers to revel and celebrate. However, in the dark corners neglected by the light, we also catch a glimpse of life’s frustration and desolation.

Lai’s creative life has been movie-like, featuring the exciting adventures encountered while growing up. Hope, disappointment, shock, and joy change constantly in a montage, breaking from traditional linear storytelling, traversing freely between reality and dreamworld. The artist derives inspiration from life, turning it into brilliant sparks, groping through the fog in search of a path, hiding a sad sympathy behind the veneer of satire. What appears rational upon first glance turns out to be fabricated Ukiyo-e. Our world may be a flawed one, broken pieces beneath seemingly sweet life – and so we need movies that allow us to breath. And thus we dream, sieging the city through art and brush.

時永駿 Shih Yung-Chun
時永駿作品的獨特之處,在於他對時間流逝的滄桑感的表現力,不但在二維平面上巧妙地鋪陳出三維立體空間的向度,同時以擦拭、拼貼、暈染或磨損等手法,來製造一種第四度空間的聯想。他捨棄華麗鮮明的現實表象,刻意去挖掘人性深處所恐懼的許多不確定的記憶,那種不明就裡的模糊,深藏在每個人午夜夢迴的夢魘中,不能自主地浮現,卻又無法完全記憶,更不可能去掌握全貌。在時永駿多數的繪畫作品中,那些看似百般無聊的生活瑣碎事物,往往暗藏了他自己的突兀解讀,那些種種不合乎常規的情節,正是現實生活中經常被人們所忽略的。其實,那正是上一世紀超現實主義那一輩的藝術家,他們所表現出對於夢境的詮釋。時永駿以他獨特的視角,表達各種荒謬、怪誕的生活百態,以繪畫作為一個逃避現實的出口,將一切的不可思議、荒唐虛構都合理化了。他那貼近平淡題材中出人意表的駭人情節,更像是推理恐怖片裡的故弄玄虛,比超現實主義的藝術家所表現的夢境更遠離了現實。

The uniqueness in Shih Yung Chun’s works is the sense of vicissitudes of the fleeting time. Shih Yung Chun not only skillfully lays out three-dimensional spatiality in a two-dimensional space; further, by using techniques of abrasion, mosaic, color-gradation and rubbing, he creates an association to fourth-dimensional space. He discards the vivid surface of reality; instead, he deliberately digs the fear from blurred memories buried in humanity. Such bewildered gloom is hidden deeply inside every horror in the middle of the night. It emerges unconsciously yet can never be totally grasped, much less captured of its clear contour. Shih Yung Chun conceals his fanciful interpretations in the vagueness of the most trivial things appearing in his works, setting up irrational plots we often overlook in real life. This coincidentally corresponds with the interpretations of dreams from the surrealists in last century. From his unique perspectives, Shih Yung Chun expresses “life” in various quirky and grotesque ways. “Painting” is his exit for fleeing from reality. Here, he is able to rationalize every fantasy and fictional creation. The thrilling plots hidden under ordinary materials in his works are more like the mystifying tricks in horror movies, and are more deviant than from the surrealists’ dreams.

侯辰璐 Hou Chen-Lu 
每個時代都會有主流的美感,什麼才是美?侯辰璐在雕塑作品中呈現出的三個乳房的女性雕塑,探討著什麼才是美,在美國影集美國恐怖故事畸形秀(American Horror Story:Freak Show)中的黛西莉.杜普里(Desiree Dupree)是為擁有三個乳房的女人,透過三個乳房來吸引男性的目光,在現實社會中Jasmine Tridevil(假名)為了上電視真人實境秀花了60萬台幣元整型多了一顆乳房,她的目的是希望讓自己不在吸引男人,她不希望再有任何約會。這樣的女性天生和後天的改變,三個乳房,是為了什麼?侯辰璐透過醺燒的方式讓陶塑本身可以呈現一種原始的樣貌,沒有釉色的包覆,透出陶瓷本身的材質感,讓看似考古出土的雕塑,女性的美,三個乳房的審美觀。

Every era has its own opinion regarding beauty of the female form; a mainstream view. Hou’s sculpture depicting a woman with three breasts explores our definition of this beauty; Desiree Dupree featured in American Horror Story: Freak Show is one such woman, attracting the gaze of countless men. In real life, Jasmine Tridevil (pseudonym) spent NT 600,000 on plastic surgery for a third breast in order to win a spot on a reality TV show – her goal was to make herself completely unattractive, with no desire to date. Three breasts, one from birth and the other through surgery – why? Hou utilizes smoldering technique to create raw pottery, choosing to forgo a glaze coating, displaying the original texture. The end result is sculpture that looks like an archaeological aesthetic relic, a beautiful woman with three breasts.

金.提爾.撒拉路基 Guim Tió Zarraluki
金.提爾對於人性的透析已遠遠超乎僅對於臉部表象的刻畫,人們對於漂亮卻又令人不自在的東西感到視覺上的舒適與情感認同,深陷於景觀之中,而金就是個觀景人。金.提爾的化妝儀式是場盛典,讓所有捕獲的成為失去的,而後平衡。透過他,所有肖像都獲得了永生,不再有名字、名氣與其所賦予的權力等標籤附註,令迷失的靈魂有了全新的妝容。

Guim Tió’s understanding of human nature goes far beyond depictions of faces. People resonate visually with beautiful yet unsettling things, finding themselves deeply engrossed. And Guim? He’s an observer. His process of makeup is a ceremony, creating balance by discarding what was captured. Through him, all portraits are blessed with eternal life; nameless, without labels and corresponding baggage, giving lost spirits a new appearance.
