【 無拘泥 】 李元佳X陶發—靈魂對話-【 Unrestrained 】 Li Yuan-Chia x Tao Fa - Soul Interlocution


無拘泥-01.jpg

李元佳:「這一小點可代表一切,也可能無關緊要。」
陶發:「藝術如生活,如我們的樣子,我們的心靈,我們的德行一樣不用去述說,」

‧ 東方元素以及靈魂述說
李元佳是台灣抽象畫、觀念藝術的先驅。這次展出作品為他早期作品,以毛筆作為畫筆將東方靈魂帶入幾何的構圖中。1959年後,李元佳不斷突破的創作思維,貫穿其藝術觀­及哲學思想,將點化為人,在抽象的藝術中表現形式中傳達深厚的哲學思維。陶發在雲南藝術大學畢業後,成為自由創作者,相較於在教室上課畫圖,他更傾向於在山林之間,毫無拘束的揮灑。將自己靈魂與生命與大自然融合,並寄託在畫筆上,創造出充滿生命力以及充滿敬畏鬼神的作品。

‧ 顏色的靈魂
在陶發的作品中,他對大自然的顏色,不僅僅是真實的顏色,帶著他個人對於鬼神了解與敬畏,以及過去在城市對於山上的嚮往與幻想,而綜合出這些繽紛的色彩。相較於陶發,李元佳作品以四個顏色「 黑、白、金、紅」,代表四種信念-始終、純粹、高貴、生命,即使在不同媒材與創作,也始終貫策一至。

在這次的展覽中,我們將已故藝術家李元佳及中國當代藝術家陶發作品一起展出。這兩位藝術家,都將自己的靈魂注入畫面,用線條以及色彩來闡述自己的理想哲學。將帶給觀者最大的震撼。不同時空下的兩位藝術家,在同一個空間會蹦出什麼火花呢?

 

Li Yuan-Chia “This little dot can mean everything, but can also be insignificant”
Tao Fa “Art is livelihood, our actions, our soul, our virtues doesn’t need explanations.”

· Eastern Elements and the Narration of the Soul
Li Yuan-Chai is one of the early founders of abstract and conceptual art in Taiwan. This exhibition features his early artworks that focuses on the concept of using Chinese writing brushes to express his soul and thoughts. After 1959, he made a major breakthrough in the perspective of art and philosophy by transfiguring human into a dot, in which conveyed great philosophical meanings in the matter of abstract art. After Li Yuan-Chai graduated from Yunnan Arts University, he became a creator. He preferred working unrestrictedly in the nature more than sitting in a boring classroom. The paintbrush connects his mind and soul with mother nature and creates extraordinary pieces that are full of energy and awe.

 

‧ the Color of the Soul
In the artworks of Tao Fa, the colors that he used in his paintings is not simply the colors that he sees, it is the colors of his spiritual beliefs and fantasies about nature that he yearned for when he was in the urban cities. He was wonderstruck by the view, which inspires him to create paintings that are full of vibrant colors. Compared with Tao Fa, the four colors: black, white, gold, and red in Li Yuan-Chia’s works are symbols of faith, which are the beginning and end, purity, nobility, and life. Even if working on different materials, they will always be consistent.

Both artworks from Li Yuan-Chai, a deceased abstract artist, and Tao Fa, a Chinese contemporary artist, will be showcasing in this upcoming exhibition. They both extracted their soul into their artworks and expressed their theories and ideas through the paints and colors. What will happen when two of the most remarkable artist from different time periods meet?
