Drawing

 

 

創作對我來說,是個神秘、難以描述的過程。創作到底是什麼?我選擇用心來尋找答案。這個旅程沒有繁複厚重的行囊,一切從簡,緊隨初衷。旅程中,畫線條是認知它的方式,在動靜的節奏裡,和它相遇,用身體和它對話。如今,這個探索旅程已經行走幾年,因為它,讓快速流動的世界,慢了下來,讓我看到自己和世界,重新找到連結世界的方法。這裡沒有追趕,沒有落後,只是自在地在世界的節奏裡行走。

 

為什麼是原子筆? 使用原子筆創作,當初選用的理由是,因為它隨手可得,且只要會握筆,就可使用。如此,在創作時,便可專注在探索和線條上。然而原子筆使用到今天,它既可透亮又可厚重的表現性,同是吸引我繼續使用原子筆創作的原因。

 

     For me, to create is a mysterious and indescribable process. What is it exactly? I choose to find the answer from within my heart. This journey is not burdened by heavy and cumbersome baggage. It is simple and direct from my soul. In this journey, I draw lines in order to better understand it. I try to meet it in the rhythmic beats of static motion and to converse with it through my physical body. Now, this explorative journey has been going on for years and because of it, the fast-moving world has slowed down. I could see myself in the world and rediscover the link in between us. Here, there is nothing to pursue here and nothing to leave behind – merely myself freely pacing along to the rhythm of the world around me.

 

     Why use a ballpoint pen? I started using the ballpoint pen in my creations because it is readily available. If you can hold a pen you can use it – even if one lacks skillful techniques. Then, I could focus on exploration and drawing lines of my own. Today, I can use the ballpoint pen to express both bright and heavy elements, and that is why it is still my tool of choice. 

 

 

 

 

Printmaking

 

什麼是版畫?版畫對我來說是什麼呢?版畫相較於其他媒材,有較高的技巧性,製作上是有一個「板」作為媒介,來進行複數印製。在這個過程中,版畫常需要經過繁複的步驟,及大量的體力來完成作品。對我來說,比起板的圖像內容表現,我喜歡其做版畫的身體勞動,也享受過程中,與板子接觸所產生的親暱感受。因此,我把「做版畫」這件事,帶入自己的生活裡,試圖把它當作日常生活的一部分,一種紀錄生活的工具。

 

     What is printmaking? What is it to me exactly? Printmaking, compared with other media, requires higher levels of skills and techniques. The “plate” is the medium for creating multiple prints and this process of printmaking often requires complex steps and great physical labor expended for each copy. For myself, I largely prefer and enjoy the physical labor of printmaking compared to the expression of images on the plates. I adore the intimacy of coming in contact with the plate. Therefore, I attempt to make “printmaking” a part of my everyday life, and as a tool for recording my own livelihood.
