Author / Chuang Tong-Chiao, Yang Chih-Wei
Eight pieces from the three series are chosen for Chuang Tong-Chiao’s solo exhibition, Inner Peace, Home, which paints a vivid image of the coastal climates and open yards. This is a reflection of his life and work after returning to the north coast of Taiwan. It is also a continuation of the theme that he has been exploring since 2012. This is an attempt to shed new lights over the expressive geometric lines through abstract and figurative expressions of personalized symbology. However, it differs from pure abstraction. It differs from the progression of over abstraction between the figurative and the abstract, and from semi-abstraction that wavers between likenesses. This is an attempt to express the non-linear dynamics with composition and color on a two-dimensional plane while leaving room for the fluidity of space, which is ambiguous and yet open, to reflect the images of house and universe he captures when he walks, bikes, drives or travels.
Yang Chih-Wei’s White Territory explores the inner state and expresses the spiritual realm within through the pure “form” and “color”. He feels the world with utmost sensibility and present it with utmost rationality. He tries to transform the world in his eyes into the pure form and color, without indication and narration, without complicated painting techniques. Only the simplistic geometric and abstract elements remain, while leaving the large void, attempting to build the inner spirituality that he seeks. Art does not present the world in an objective and comprehensive light. However, it is precisely the subjective consciousness that highlights a unique, essential and multifaceted quality of art, its unhindered connection to the people and the world.
A Gallery is featuring Chuang Tong-Chiao and Yang Chih-Wei in this duo solo exhibition. The two young artists have been focusing on abstract art and will present their latest work.
