Exhibition

顏頂生,1960年生於臺南將軍,1983年畢業於國立藝術專科學校,2004年畢業於國立臺南藝術大學造型與藝術研究所。

從一開始想像東西方繪畫的技術融合,到回身觀照自身與所處的空間,面對繪畫過程中的思維他秉持著「自廢武功」的創作狀態,不以技術的熟練自足,而希望於創作的每個當下,直接誠摯的展現自身對文化、對生命及對自然的反身觀照而已。

顏頂生的作品大多是幽微的空間裡,有著介於動與不動的狀態,這樣幽微的空間感與徐徐流動感,展現了顏頂生創作當下的內、外觀,內回觀己身,外體驗自然韻律。

他的創作,從一開始在空間中的書法性線條,作為東西繪畫交流試合的文化符號象徵。而後,在漸感創作上想法的矛盾,他逐漸地以觀照個人,試圖表現出自身土地、文化、記憶為主的創作。因此,身為中醫世家且開設中藥舖的他將中藥材作為符號入畫,以中藥作為媒材將個人生活經驗成功地融入了在地的現代文人畫語彙。

 

Apparently, Or Not-2021 Yen Ding-Sheng Solo Exhibition

Born in 1960 in Jiangjun Village in Tainan, Yen Ding-Sheng graduated from National Taiwan College of Arts (now known as National Taiwan University of Arts) in 1983. He later earned an advanced degree from Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts at Tainan National University of the Arts in 2004.

From the very beginning, imagining the technical fusion of Eastern and Western painting, to his return to the examination of his own place and space, confronting his thinking over the process of painting, he maintained a “deactivated” creative state – never satisfied with polished technique, but rather in every moment of creation to simply directly and honestly express his own culture and reflect on life and nature.

Yen Ding-Sheng’s works typically feature quiet and dusky spaces in states between dynamic and static. These sorts of tranquil and muted spaces and a feeling of slow flowing, express Yen Ding-Sheng’s introspection, outlook, and return to self, and experience nature’s rhythms in the moment with his art.

Yen Ding-Sheng’s art began with calligraphic lines in space as the cultural symbolism of the matchup between Eastern and Western painting. Subsequently, upon gaining awareness of contradictions in his creative thinking, Yen turned his focus to people, attempting to express his personal sense of place, culture, and memory through his art. Accordingly, having come from a family of traditional Chinese medicine practitioners and run a traditional Chinese medicine dispensary himself, Yen began incorporating Chinese herbs as both symbols and media into his paintings, successfully melding his life experience into a local modern literati painting vernacular of his own.
