未曾改變的風景 Unaltered Landscapes

熊薇個展

XIONG Wei Solo Exhibition


當熊薇潛心深入探索禪宗的空、道家的無為等形而上學時,她的風景畫就進入純粹抽象和極簡主義,所有傳統的象徵主義和線性表現的形式都拋諸腦後,唯一僅有的是她的筆觸,留下時空的線索。雖然她所謂的風景畫的形式顯著地改變了,但是形象背後的精神未曾改變。如同宋代的藝術家,熊薇通過畫布呈現她的哲學思考,而畫布上所出現神祕的形象,就留給觀者去解碼。

As Wei Xiong’s mind wonders deeply into the realm of metaphysics, in either Chan (Zen) Buddhist teachings of Emptiness or Taoist Non-action, her landscapes transcend into total abstraction and brutal minimalism. All forms of traditional symbolism and linear representation is forgotten and left behind. There is only evidence of space and time, left by the artist’s brush. While the formal qualities of her so-called landscapes have dramatically changed, the spirit behind the image remains unaltered. Like Song Dynasty  (960 – 1279)  artists, Wei Xiong seeks to address philosophical concerns within the boundaries of her canvas, in which the painted image appears as enigmatic as that of the ancients before her, leaving only traces of her mind to be deciphered.
