胡坤榮說:「我期待自己的作品是擁有獨特純潔的安靜空間,可以耐人尋味;一如印象主義所討論的光影與色彩,不僅嚴謹、有秩序,而且具有前瞻性。」

面對人群時,胡坤榮的話語不多,顯得拙於言辭;但他的生活應該是怡然自得吧。他釀醬油、製作麵包、肉品一定向熟悉的肉販購買,他養植物、養金魚、寵愛狗,是一個和我們不太一樣的人。他絕對孤僻,挑剔,不隨俗,就像他一生只面對幾何抽象,挑戰顏色、造型和空間,他一定寂寞,因為不寂寞畫不出這樣安靜的作品,他當然挑剔,因為不挑剔無法面對他自己的孤寂;《我心狂野》應是他內在的真實自我,這一次終於可以一窺究竟。

 

“I expect my works to be provided with unique, pure and quiet spaces which can intrigue viewers and provoke their thoughts. Light and shadow and the colors, just like those discussed in Impressionism, are foresighted as well as strict and methodical,” says Hu.

When in front of a crowd, Hu is a man of few words and seems to be slow of speech. Even so, he should live a life that he is happy and pleased with himself. He brews soya sauce, bakes bread and would definitely purchase meat from the butchers with whom he is familiar; he, who differs quite a bit from us, cultivates plants, raises goldfishes and pets dogs; he is absolutely autistic, fussy and doesn’t do as everybody else does. Moreover, he only faces geometric abstraction, deals with color, form and space throughout his career and life. He must be lonely, if not, he cannot make such tranquil paintings; he must be fussy, if not, he cannot be at peace with his own loneliness. Wild at Heart should be his inner and real self.
