Shih Yung Chun

ART #5


Shih Yungchun, born in 1978, Taipei, holding the first solo exhibition at Yulan Hall Gallery from October 20th to November 28th 2012, in 798, Beijing. The exhibition is named as “soap operas”,showing his 62 representative in the mainland audiences. For himself, it is important; for real art loving friends in Beijing, however, it is also a chance get to know the guy.

Shih’s paintings mostly come from scenes of everyday life as the main theme, however, he evolutes from hundreds of photos to the narrative content. That’s why in those familiar scene, he always deliberately makes alienated and strange change, let people feel astonishing, but can not help curiousity for further exploring the truth. However, the truth in Shi Yongjun’s paintings, doesn’t exist. That’s why he named the exhibition as “soap opera”.  Every day seems true, can also be fabricated. Shih Yungjun makes every one of his works highly finished because of the mature painting skill. He is an artist with very strong painting, we are now facing the repositioning moment of art after 40 years’ leading by concept art, which makes Shih’s art even more full of temptation. He’s also a good story teller. Whirling plot, like a metaphor, saying that we are living in the ” mystery “, the mystery of life, dramatic process. The true mingled with the false. Who can distinguish it? like a panic during the  pursuit of truth in the vain, perhaps this is the power of creations by Shih , and the reason which led him deep into the mystery and unable to escape.

 

 

时永骏

ART #5


1978 在台北出生的时永骏,今年10月20日至11月28日在北京798玉兰堂画廊举办第一次的北京个展,以《肥皂剧》为名,将他近年来的62件代表作呈现在内地的观众眼前。对他个人而言,是重要的展览,但是,对于北京真正爱好艺术的朋友,又未始不是一次大饱眼福的机会。
时永骏的画作虽是以最熟悉的日常生活场景为题材,但是,他从成千上百的照片中,演变出取之不尽的叙事内容,所以在熟悉的场景中,他总是蓄意制造疏离和陌生的改变,让人在错愕之余,忍不住想要更进一步探索真相。然而,真相在时永骏的画作中,是不可能存在的。所以,他非常机巧地以《肥皂剧》为名,说明看来真实的每一天也可以是编造和虚构的。时永骏在绘画技巧方面的纯熟度,使得他的每一件作品的完成度都很高。他是一位绘画性很强的艺术家,在今天当代艺坛走过观念艺术主导的40年,正面临重新定位的时刻,时永骏的艺术,反而充满了诱惑力。他,也是一个擅长说故事的人,扑朔迷离的情节,好像喻示我们都活在“谜”里,谜一样的人生,戏剧化的过程,真真假假,虚虚实实,谁分得清楚黑白与是非?一种在虚妄中追求真理的恐慌,或许这才是时永骏创作的动力,使他陷溺其中而无法脱身的真正原因吧。
