Romance of Trees, Flowers, and Stones II

Romance of Trees, Flowers, and Stones, the contemporary ink exhibition of Taiwanese painter Peng Kang Long that took place at Yi&C. in 2014 not only embodied the perfect marriage of contemporary ink and home aesthetics, but expanded the horizons for local and international collectors.

This year Yi&C. presents Romance of Trees, Flowers, and Stones II, comprising a constellation of Peng Kang Long’s works from 2014 to 2017. Fervently sought after on the international art market, Peng is known for harnessing the power within his painting, as each brushstroke delineates mountains, stones, flowers, grass — either in audacity or defiance. Critic Xia Ke Jun once described Peng’s brushwork as “profound, intense sensuosity,” and “an authentic exploration in Chinese ink,” while Guo Guang Yu compared Peng’s unrestrained interpretation of the centuries-old medium to fauvism in ink. Through this exhibition the viewer will be able to witness up close the artist’s creative force and artistic endeavor in all its ebullience.

誠摯邀請您參與易雅居2016年11月11日 【仰觀垂象—泰祥洲水墨個展】開幕酒會

Yi&C. is pleased to present Chinese ink painter Tai Xiangzhou and his solo exhibition Celestial Tales for its 2016 annual exhibition project. Having caught the attention of the international art scene, Tai Xiangzhou brings to Yi&C. his latest series Astronomy. The most salient quality of his work lies in the artist’s ability to blend traditional Chinese ink painting with his years-long research on astronomy and early Chinese art. His painting encapsulates a structural aesthetics of image making as meteorites and the astronomical universe metamorphose at the tip of his paintbrush. The artist has introduced a new perspective on Chinese ink painting that exudes profound poetics, garnering him international acclaim.

Tai Xiangzhou’s work is in various collections of museums and academic institutions, as well as prominent international collectors. Especially his work is the first that the Art Institute of Chicago has collected of a living Asian artist since it was founded in 1879, opening a new page for Chinese ink painting on the international art scene. You are cordially invited to Celestial Tales: The Ink Painting of Tai Xiangzhou, on view at Yi&C. from November 11 to December 10.

Contemporary Art in Korea

Korea has in recent years distinguished itself in the field of arts and culture. In celebration of October 3, the National Foundation Day of Korea, Yi&C. in collaboration with Taipei 101 and the Korean Mission in Taipei, is pleased to present Contemporary Art in Korea, a group exhibition aimed at fostering cultural exchange between Taiwan and Korea by highlighting a constellation of important Korean contemporary artists, both established and emerging, who have contributed to the burgeoning art scene in Korea in diverse mediums from sculpture to printmaking. 

Contemporary Art in Korea opened with sculptress Gyoungmin Kim’s critically acclaimed solo exhibition A Journey to Find Happiness earlier in July. Kim is known for her keen observations of the everyday, transforming moving moments from a first-time meeting, to a morning commute to work, or a joyful bike ride home with family, into three-dimensional forms that emanate an air of tender and deep happiness.

The group exhibition continues at the end of August with artists Park Seo Bo, Kim Whan Ki, Song Hyeong Noh, Yoon Byung Rock, and Ha Taelm, among others. Park Seo Bo, known as the father of the Dansaekhwa, or the Korean Monochrome Painting, is dexterous in creating repeated pencil lines on hanji, Korean traditional paper, mounted on canvas, embodying a spirituality in painting through multitudes of lines. Kim Whan Ki (1913–1974), who passed away over 40 years ago, pioneered in Korean abstract art with his clean palette and deep sense of dimensionality. Song Hyeong Noh conflates nature, animals, and inanimate objects in his painting, calling forth imagery surreally three-dimensional and unexpectedly gripping. With his paintbrush Yoon Byung Rock magnifies apples on traditional Korean rice paper in a uncanny realist approach. Also on display is a refreshing array of emerging Korean artists who have found their way into international limelight. Contemporary Art in Korea with a talented roster of Korean artists, instantiates the distinctive and booming art scene of Korea today. The varied group exhibition opens at the end of August at Gallery 101, Taipei.

眼界 ‧ 心界——森山大道個人作品展

森山大道是戰後日本攝影界最重要的攝影師之一。
展覽展出森山大道由1971年至今不同時期的作品共80幅,其中包括森山最為人熟悉的作品《野犬》(1971)。展品選自各重要時期的系列作品﹕首次造訪美國時拍攝的《紐約:另一個國度》(1971)、《北海道》(1978)、《巴黎》(1988/1989) 和仍在創作進行式的《紀錄》攝影集系列: 《紀錄No.15 (紐約)》(2010)、《紀錄No.18 (台北)》(2011)、《紀錄No.19 (意大利)》(2011)、《紀錄No.23 (倫敦)》(2013)等。展覽涵蓋森山大道歷經四十多年的藝術發展。

「我非常喜歡城市,尤其是大城市。
越大的城市就有越多的人種、越多故事、越快速的流動。
城市包括人類、社會的慾望在裡面,
是一種混亂的狀態,
對我來說,我非常喜歡拍攝這些慾望纏繞不清的感覺。
如果以我自己的說法,我覺得因為城市本身就是藝術了,
我並不需要再去創作藝術,
只要把城市的原汁原味拍下來就好。
這就是為什麼這麼多年來,我對於城市街頭從來不會厭倦
而且一直都很喜愛的原因。」

得墨 :金浩得墨界 / KIM HO DEUK:the Mo, KIM HO DEUK’s Ink Painting

身為韓國重量級的當代水墨大師金浩得,為了跳脫「墨」的物性,他甚至以裝置概念來進行『墨』的實驗,提煉『墨』色之中空間與時間的純度,樹立了聲墨和形墨兩種特殊的「墨畫」體裁,在韓國當代水墨裡無人可以望其項背。作品更廣受韓國國立現代美術館、三星美術館、大邱市立美術館以及POSCO、OCI美術館等機構典藏。此次易雅居個展《墨界》,帶來了他創作轉換點的兩類作品,一是將身體可以聽到聲音的感情表達出來的「聲墨界」以及將形象的平面繪畫造型在時間和空間移動的動態表現出來的「形墨界」。既是墨的繪畫,也是墨的裝置,絕對值得屏息以待!

Gazing into Korean Contemporary Art

Gazing into Korean Contemporary Art 
Melting Domain: Triangular Matrix of Korean Arts 

Blending elegant home décor with Asian contemporary art, nurturing a unique atmosphere where East and West cultures converge, has always been the core philosophy of Yi&C. As Lesser Fullness of Grain is approaching, Yi&C. with its unique eye for arts and culture, is pleased to present Melting Domain: Triangular Matrix of Korean Arts, a group exhibition curated by Moon Jung-Hee, which highlights the trendsetters of Korean contemporary art. 

As the Korean culture overwhelms the global fashion, cultural and creative, and entertainment industries, Korea's contemporary art has held a strong presence in the international art world. Looking to broaden the scope of the Taiwanese art scene, Yi&C. invites Moon Jung-Hee, visiting professor of the Tainan National University of the Arts, to curate Melting Domain: Triangular Matrix of Korean Arts. Moon is also an art historian and the chief researcher of the Korean Graduate School of the Arts. This exhibition focuses on three well-known contemporary artists in Korea. Switzerland-based Yang Kwang-Ja (b. 1943) and once U.S.-based Kim Bong Tae (b. 1937) are both tremendously influenced by Western Modernism in the 1970s, while Kim Sun (b. 1976), born in the generation of the mid-70s, is a rising star in Korea's art circle. The common thread that runs through these artists' art practices is that they construct a melting domain through the use of multimedia art forms and collage. Delving into issues such as self and identity, localness and foreignness, memory and reciprocation, these three artists reinterpret the diverse forms into which contemporary art morphs in their individual generations. 

《The Light Series》, Yang Kwang-Ja 

Since she graduated from the Berlin University of the Arts and settled down in Zurich, Switzerland to teach, Yang Kwang-Ja has been actively engaged in her art practice, which was profoundly influenced by Western Modernism in the 1970s. On display at this exhibition is her Light Series, distinguished by lyricism, and a mix of oil paint, ink wash, and egg tempera. Breaking visual boundaries, the artist layers on canvas an exuberant fullness with hefty oil paints, contrasted with ink wash and egg tempera that exudes an airy, poetic, and sensuous freespiritedness, as an emotional space simultaneously transparent and opaque materializes. Painting in an abstract style of German Expressionism, Yang boldly combines ink wash and oil paint on traditional canvas or Korean mulberry paper. It is not difficult to see her relentless search in Eastern and Western cultures for something that resonates with her identity as Korean, her longing to return to her motherland, and her pursuit of connection. In her work, ink wash applied closely to hefty oil paint, appears to be mottled traces but more like reflections of her state of mind, while a nostalgia so faint and obscure sprawls along the texture of her painting. 

《The Dancing Box Series》, Kim Bong Tae 

Kim Bong Tae, with a bachelor's degree from the University of Seoul, nurtured by the local Korean abstract style, has been practicing printmaking and sculpture in the United States for many years. His recent body of work demonstrates a great deal of sculptural 
collage in the painting that renders something flat three-dimensional. With the Dancing Box Series Kim's years of hard work in two-dimensional and three-dimensional arts have finally come to fruition. Several flat geometric shapes pop up in the box: a see-through interior space is formed by silhouettes of the geometric shapes, while a three-dimensionality is constructed by color blocks which transform into dancing figures. 

Intriguingly the Dancing Box, strongly influenced by Western simplicity and logic, is dominated by a vibrant and contrasting palette that enlivens the dancing figure with an aesthetic quality that evokes traditional Korean clothing. Neat and sprightly, Kim's work 
is a form of self-scrutiny on Korean artists in the global art world, each detail characterized by highly distinct pigments steeped in the culture of his home country, artfully blending aesthetics of the East and West. 

《The Nostalgic Series》, Kim Sun 

Born, raised, and based in Korea, emerging artist Kim Sun is known for her mixed-media art practic in photography and drawing. She first photographs the scenery, then hand-draws on transparency paper, and finally superimposes the photograph with the drawing, before taking an image of the combined piece as the final work. While the drawing conveys the artist's subjective awareness and emotions, the photograph portrays remnants of objective reality. The Nostalgic Series is — in a way — a question she poses to herself throughout her years of travel in foreign lands: Who am I? The traces of changing space and time, and surroundings/contexts are mixed and collaged with her superimposed images and expressive drawings, creating a surreal imagery in poetic filter colors. Kim Sun blends realistic observations with personal reflections, turning them into thoughtful visual manifestations. 
Believing in living space aesthetics and arts, every year Yi&C. presents meticulously curated exhibitions as a way to enrich the public's cultural understanding. Melting Domain: Triangular Matrix of Korean Arts is an attempt to transcend borders as well as an opportunity for art connoisseurs to experience firsthand the burgeoning Korean art scene. 
About the Artists │ Yang Kwang-Ja 

Born in 1943 in Naju, Korea, Yang Kwang-Ja went to study in Berlin, Germany in 1966. 
After she graduated from the Berlin University of the Arts, she settled down in Zurich, Switzerland, and has been living and working there as a teacher and an artist ever since. Her artistic style of abstraction is significantly influenced by German Expressionism, rendered in Western egg tempera, self-made ink wash, and Korean mulberry paper, as she breaks East-West boundaries in her conscious welding of materials.

Kim Sun 

Born in 1976 in Chungnam, Korea, Kim Sun works in mixed media of photography and drawing, with a solid foundation in techniques. Contrary to the grandioseness and sensationlism often found in contemporary photography, Kim Sun's work witnesses her return to the nature of visual aesthetics. Her poetic visual expression does not seek to provoke, but to convey the subtle feelings of the artist as pensive visual representations.

開幕圓滿成功 - 【A Reconstruction of Beitie Images - 碑帖印象 - 黃一鳴水墨作品展】

2014年開始易雅居在當代空間展出較少見的當代水墨畫,示範了充滿東方情愫的水墨畫如何交融於當代的居家空間之中,一開展便深獲好評,也為易雅居獨特的眼光與人文品味更添一筆。2015年易雅居接續,再推出以書法為基底的創新水墨藝術家黃一鳴先生,帶來【碑帖映象-黃一鳴水墨作品展】。易雅居為熱愛藝術者推薦這位奇才大家,其跨越書法與繪畫的界線,騁馳於書畫之間,大氣揮灑,引人入勝。

有著紮實書法底蘊,以秀異的當代抽象水墨另闢蹊徑的藝術家黃一鳴,畢生窮究書法精要,如今提煉純粹線形,轉換成具有現代性的抽象水墨畫,作為對當代全球化以及中西文化融和的一種回應。而他將書法行書之間的氣韻生動,透過更寬闊、更當代的視野與構圖,跨越了書畫之間的鴻溝,解放書墨之間線性表現,賦予線條絕對自由,既承於過往,更是馭形於當代。

生於1952年,藝術家黃一鳴以書法崛起於兩岸藝壇,他投入書法創作,長達四十年而不輟,更於兩岸間奠定了書法大家之名聲與高度。近年,他以多年來的書法深厚底蘊轉而投入水墨畫作,經由自身的淬煉與純化後,將書法線形骨架與水墨澀相相融於無形,透過『線形』更自由奔放的表現,直觀地投射出藝術家內在的心相世界。

書法,承載著大中華五千年文化的精髓-漢字。歷代書法家多在字體架構下揮灑,講究運筆的力與文字書寫的美。千年以來,尚無書法家挑戰解構文字,無論是哪一種書體,所嘗試的皆為可辨識、具語意的文字!

而黃一鳴的創新之處,在於他藉著爐火純青的書法底蘊,大膽揚棄所依賴的文字認知框架,更自由地駕馭書法的唯一構成元素─『線條』。透過『線性』的純粹抽象性,以更直接、更有力的方式來表達內在對於藝術的永恆追求。

在此次展出的『碑帖映象』系列中,黃一鳴特別借用了「碑」與「帖」所隱射的兩種不同線質,最初,「碑」係指用刀刻在石碑上的文字,有著刀法的厚重、樸拙與剛硬,「帖」則是寫在紙絹上的文字,有著線條速度的流動、飄逸與婉轉之美。藝術家藉著這兩種特殊線質:樸拙厚重與流動飄逸,巧妙地闡述兩種截然不同的情緒與對比張力,更帶出了水墨繪畫中的黑/白、虛/實、剛/柔、急/緩、收/放等。整幅畫作揮灑疾駛,一氣呵成,不僅描繪出他理想境界裡的『映象』水墨,更淋漓展現出畫作的俐落磅礡之勢。

也難怪評論家陳宏星談到,黃一鳴先生的畫作間有著「無我執、棄諸象」之藝術創作的初心禪意。前北美館館長黃海鳴曾說,『黃一鳴的作品比一般水墨畫家更具有表現性,能用更簡潔的書法線條來強化、深化整體藝術表現。他的特殊性更在於運用的書法及繪畫的基本語言,傳達了非常細膩的整體生命狀態的體悟。』

也因此,凝視著黃一鳴的水墨作品,頗能享受畫作裏一股秀異的凜然之氣。但若試圖想要理解其中奧秘,則實有不少的難度。這正因黃一鳴的當代水墨畫,由書法中淬煉而出的,因此,觀賞黃一鳴的水墨畫作自然能擁有兩種欣賞視角,與多種樂趣,既能觀其畫,欣賞其相應於自然與內觀所得的藝術感悟。又能觀其骨幹與架構,領略其中力與美。這不禁令人想到唐朝張懷權在《文字論》裏說到「深識書者,惟觀神采,不見字形」。透過這句話的闡述,或可稍微窺知藝術家究竟是如何跨越書畫的界線,並進一步地悠遊於其間。

專注人文品味與空間美學的易雅居,透過獨特的美學視角,為國人推薦與眾不同的創新藝術觀點。此次【碑帖映象—黃一鳴水墨作品展】於易雅當代空間館展覽,帶來藝術家最新畫作,時間從3月27日到4月26日,易雅居盛情邀請藝術愛好與品味者一同感受這獨一無二,騁馳於書法與繪畫之間的水墨之旅,更深度理解東方藝術的傳承與變化萬千。 


藝術家簡介│

以書法崛起於兩岸藝壇的黃一鳴,書法根基深厚,歷經數十年潛心探索與突破,自書法元素中萃取出風格強烈的「線質」精髓,以抽象感知與線性質地,開創出獨具一格、融匯東西的當代水墨抽象表現。曾獲中山文藝書法創作獎、中國文藝獎章書法創作獎。近年廣受兩岸三地所邀展,作品收藏於台北市立美術館、北京歷史博物館(現國家博物館)、台北歷史博物館、蘇州美術館等,以及為各國收藏家典藏。
