Chinese artist Chen Cheng-Wei’s realistic paintings of the bygone era 中國藝術家陳承衛舊時代的擬真畫作

Chen Cheng-Wei’s paintings are very realistic that I feel like the subjects in the paintings are going to step out of the frame anytime. The chiaroscuro employed by the artist highlights the realism in each work. They’re so realistic that they also look surreal. The paintings, upon closer view, invites the viewers to formulate a narrative. A young lady waiting for her suitor. Two sisters expressing different views. A lady looking straight right at us, inviting us to look back. The artist’s works tackle relationships between his subjects as well as between the subject and the viewers.

The pieces collected here are part of an ongoing exhibit titled Being and Nothingness at Chini Gallery, Taipei.

You can view more of his works included in the exhibition here.

陳承衛的畫作都是很寫實,讓我覺得畫作中的人物隨時可以跳出來,藝術家利用的明暗對照法強調每幅畫的真實感,他的作品很真實,看起來也很超現實。在較近處看,這些畫邀請觀眾一起創作故事,像是等待求婚著的女士、表達著不同意見的兩姊妹、直視觀畫者的女士,強迫我們再回頭看看她。陳承衛表現出人與人之間的關係,以及畫作中的人物與觀眾之間的關係。

這些作品正在采泥藝術展出的一部分,展題叫「存在與虛無」。
