Taiwanese Artist Wu Hsi-Chi’s mixed media on paper depict man’s intimacy with nature 台灣藝術家吳熙吉描繪人與自然的親密關係

For 15 years, Wu Hsi-Chi has been creating abstract oil paintings. In the past three or four years, he has embarked on a new mode of expression using oil pastel. His new series, which remind me of prints, tackles man’s relationship with nature. The skies, the hills, the mountains, and the seas in his paintings are drawn with strong and vivid lines which according to the artist signify the present-day technological advances that require signals and radio waves. The artist applies the oil pastel generously across the paper and scrapes off the top surface to keep the excess pastel from flaking off. By painting man alongside nature, the artist attempts to relive his childhood spent along the coast in the mining town of Jinguashi. The artist now lives in Yilan, in northeastern Taiwan.

The pieces collected here are part of an ongoing exhibition titled Solemn Figures at Powen Gallery, Taipei.

過去十五年,吳熙吉一直都在創作抽象油畫,這三四年,他開始利用蠟筆線條畫出新的表達方式,他新的系列乍看之下很像版畫,這些作品描繪人與自然的親密關係。他畫作中的天空、山丘、山脈、以及海都被繪製成強烈生動的線條,根據藝術家自己表示,這些線條表示訊號。吳熙吉毫不吝嗇地把蠟筆塗在紙上,然後刮掉表面,留下下層的底色。藉由創作人和自然的繪畫,藝術家重溫他在金瓜石礦山沿岸的童年,藝術家現住在台灣東北的宜蘭市。

這是正於紅野畫廊展出中的部分作品,展題叫「妙像雲集」。
