中堅勢力 In the Prime of Vitality

開幕首展

Opening Exhibition


藝術創作不是一蹴可幾,天才也要禁得起千錘百鍊。中國當代藝術市場十年的爆發性成長,平空造就許多大明星,藝術家迅速竄紅者比比皆是,這卻是史無前例。巴菲特名言:「只有在退潮時,才知道誰在裸泳。」當藝術市場漸歸常軌時,才能定奪誰有真正實力。在時間奔流的長河中,堅持踽踽獨行,迎風踏浪,生活起伏與市場波動都未能動搖對藝術創作的投入,創造自己獨特的藝術語彙者,才能在藝術史上贏得一席之地。他們承先啟後,引領風騷,他們是兩岸藝術界不可迴避的「中堅勢力」。

Artistic creation does not happen overnight, even for the most gifted artists it has always been a long process of search and refinement. The Chinese Contemporary Art market’s sudden surge in the last ten years has raised many artists to the state of superstardom; a phenomenon unprecedented in China’s history. Investor Warren Buffett once said “you only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out.” That is to say, only when the art market stabilizes will artists’ talent and worth be clearly revealed. Only those who can withstand the passage of time, as well as the dictates of social pressures and market demand, and find their own place among different currents and trends, will have their names secured in art history. They have come a long way for their standing today, and at the same time, possess full potential for a bolder tomorrow. They are essential to the art world of China and Taiwan, as they are in the prime of vitality.
