走自己的路,點滴自在

林磐聳六十藝術展

Walking My Own Path, A State of Being –

The Art of Lin Pang-soong at 60


2007年林磐聳榮獲國家文藝獎美術類得主,是歷屆美術類得獎者中最年輕者,更是首位以設計專業獲得國家文藝獎。早年他選擇設計是一條特別的路,他說:「這條路並不好走,卻讓我因此看到了不同的人生風景;正因為走這條路的人比較少,所以我才能幸運地受到矚目。」

在人生半百之際樹立了新里程碑,他要花更多的時間與精力投入藝術創作,這又是一條特別的路,也是一個重大的轉彎。他在設計界的盛名,對於從事藝術創作,有正、反兩面的作用,盛名既激勵著他,但也會是個包袱,所幸,他有著「海納百川,有容乃大」的海洋性格,促使他勇於擺脫一成不變的既定方向。

林磐聳從年輕時,就堅定地走自己的路,從設計到繪畫,在自己的土地找到取之不盡的創作養分與安身立命的根本,以滴水穿石的毅力,持續令自己自在的創作形式,成就了藝術,也圓滿了生命。

In 2007 Lin (Apex) Pang-soong was awarded the National Award of Arts in the Fine Arts category, as the youngest recipient of the category, as well as the first designer in the award’s history. In his early years, Lin’s choice of vocation was a different path, and he recalls, “it was not an easy path, but it allowed me to see a different perspective in life; and because those who went down this path are few, I have the good fortune of being recognized.”

At halfway to a hundred, Lin met a fork in the road and shifted more time and energy towards his painting, which was another different path, and also one of great change. His success in the field of design plays both positive and negative roles on his art; he is driven by his reputation, which can sometimes be a burden. Fortunately, he has the spirit of the sea, in which “the sea encompasses a hundred rivers, it is great because of its capacity,” thereby encouraging him to forge another path.

Since his youth, Lin Pang-soong firmly walked his own path. From design to painting, he found endless inspiration and the sense of belonging in his native land. Like steady continuous drops of water piercing through stone, Lin’s adherence to his approach to painting, is in itself a form of art. So in faceing his art, Lin is free and at ease, and through the thousands of intricately placed dots, the viewer captures a glimpse into Lin’s state of being.
