對於藝術家蔡依庭來說,繪畫如同日記般記錄下生命的不同階段,如果仔細端看蔡依庭的作品,其創作風格形成的過程中,藝術家無疑將個人的生命歷程放入作品中,而此次在非畫廊展出的作品,不單單從女性的視角,更加入為人母親的經歷,對自身的形體進行不同角度的觀察與表現。

距離上一次2013年個展,蔡依庭將近五年的時間未舉辦個展,這段時間他多了另一個角色—母親。她是一位全職的母親,卻未曾放棄創作這條路,即便是挺著懷孕的大肚子,每一天晚上,他會走到住家附近的工作室,在不是太寬敞的空間地板上,打開一大捆的水彩畫紙,跪趴在地上專心地畫畫,這是作為藝術家的蔡依庭日常的生活狀態。

展覽名稱蔡依庭思考許久,命名為《初生。月內》,展出的十餘件作品正是紀錄初次生產後,作月子(台語:月內)的感受及狀態,她說,月內對她而言是一個過渡的時間,承載著身分和身體的變化與轉換。

To Tsai, painting is like a diary recording the different stages of life. If we look at Tsai’s works closely, one may find that the artist undoubtedly puts her life history into the works during the formation of her creative style. In the exhibition at Beyond Gallery, it can be seen that the works are the observation and expression of a personal body from different angles, in which they are not only stemmed from the perspective of a woman but added with the experience of being a mother.

Since she had her last solo exhibition in 2013, Tsai had not held a solo exhibition for nearly five years. During the period of time, she has taken on another role—mother. Tsai is a full-time mother who has never given up her road to artistic creation. Even when she was already sporting a baby bump, she would go to the studio near her house every night. Although the studio space was not roomy, she insisted on unfastening the bundled watercolor papers, kneeing down and bending over on the floor to paint without distraction. To the artist, this is her everyday life.

Tsai named the exhibition Newborn.Confinement after thinking over for a long while. More than a dozen works on display were the recording of her feeling and status during the postnatal confinement after giving birth at the first time. She said, the confinement was a transitional period to her, in which it bore the physical adaptation and identity shift.
