策展實績 > 意識轉移 魏子喻個展 Transformation of Consciousness

創作自述|魏子喻

這次展出兩個系列作品,分別是《Hello!Kitty》系列和《Untitled 》系列,兩個系列為我在研究所時期的主要創作,兩者是連續進行的,也同時對於現在自身的創作有相當程度的影響力。我喜歡、也擅長以細膩的筆法去描繪畫面,一直以來都採用「超級寫實主義」的風格,配合著攝影、投影設備,以及數位科技軟體的輔助,這代表著古典繪畫技術與時代的連結。

我從《Hello!Kitty》系列中開始思考創作的轉變,使玩具公仔們像是演出戲劇一般,彼此間有著對話關係,就像童年時代自己把玩玩具公仔那樣,賦予它們生命,改變了自身原來多倚靠直覺的創作模式。

《Untitled 》系列以無題命名,描述靈魂經過了鏡頭進入各種媒體,再由創作者之手再現於畫布的過程。此系列期將作品敘述從玩具公仔身上重新回到創作者本身,不再以公仔的角度觀看,而是以創作者為出發,試圖尋找靈魂的存在,所以讓畫面以3D立體圖像的概念呈現,以期尋找出「靈魂」這個真實卻又虛無的存在。更讓公仔們回到創作者自身曾經存在過的時空場域,明確地展現公仔的生命,以及公仔替代了自己的存在,此外更加強了創作與數位科技軟體的連結性,重新找到一個屬於自己的創作方法,此為這次展覽中相當重要且別具意義的部份。

雖長久以來以創作者作為自身志業,然對於創作仍舊有許多好奇與想要學習的部分,這是在創作歷程中相當珍貴的時期,期能透過此次展覽作為自身研究所階段創作的整體檢視,並於未來更加堅定自己所堅持的方向。


Artist Statement |WEI Tzu Yu

The exhibition Transformation of Consciousness consists of the “Hello! Kitty” series and the “Untitled” series, which are my main creations during the master's program. They are developed simultaneously, influencing my current creations. Creating in Hyperrealism, I enjoy and am good at painting with delicate strokes with assistant photographic and projecting equipment, demonstrating the combination of classic painting skills and modern technologies.

I began to think about changes in my creations while painting “Hello! Kitty”. Instead of painting with instincts, I created conversing relationships among the action figures, as if they are playing a drama, just like how I granted life to my toys when I was a child. 

The “Untitled” series portrays the process that spirits enter various media and are displayed on canvas through the artist’s brushes. With the 3D paintings, the focus of this series is shifted from action figures back to the artist, hoping to figure out the existence of spirit. The action figures even return to places that the artist used to stay in. As the action figures come to life, they substitute the artist’s existence. The connection between creations and technologies are deepened while I discover another creating method, stressing the significance of this exhibition.

Although having called myself as an artist, I am still curious about creations and hope to learn more. Such situation is a precious period in my career. I hope that the exhibition would act as a review on my master’s program, allowing me to be more determined on the direction I am heading to.
