「花園裡的線索」是此次呂英菖、張騰遠聯展的展覽名稱,同時也是兩位藝術家共同創作的一件作品的名稱。作品〈花園裡的線索〉於縹緲深邃的宇宙之中花團錦簇,畫面正中緊密相連的是被以數學無限符號箍繞聚集的人們,這些化約為簡單線條的人形所代表的可以是呂英菖、張騰遠兩位藝術家、可以分別是其中一位藝術家與其家人朋友、也可以泛指因緣際會甚至僅僅擦肩而過的某些人,人與人的相遇乃至相聚在生命的輪迴循環之中竟是如此微妙。
人之生命於浩瀚宇宙猶如曇花一現,生時嬌豔燦爛,轉瞬已然凋謝枯萎,但卻非消失為空無。生命的曾經存在本身,就已經為曾經相遇相聚的家人朋友乃至片刻眼神交流的陌生人的內心,埋藏下一顆等待萌芽的精神種子,這顆精神種子在無限輪迴過程中蓄積能量,待得緣起、待得時機成熟又再花開,且更加燦爛。這是生命所顯現的美好,這是生命的終極意義,是生命花園裡等待發覺的線索。
呂英菖深諳其中真義並將其表現在創作之中,平面化的裝飾性線條,妝點出朵朵生命之花競賽似地花開,爭奇鬥艷而賞心悅目。張騰遠則以濃妝塗抹,重彩轟擊,為花開荼靡後的生命提出質疑和反思。兩位藝術家關懷生命、關懷生命存在所處的環境、關懷人與人之間真切來往的交流,他們於展覽之中、於作品之中所佈下的線索,你找到了嗎?

The exhibition In the Garden Crossword Clue is presented by the artists Ying-Chang Lu and Teng-Yuan Chang, who created this piece of work as a collaboration. This piece, places us in profound universes as we come upon a garden of blooming flowers; in the middle an infinity symbol is twined an assembly of people represented by simple outlines. The figures could signify the artists, Lu and Chang, or their families, or even strangers who meet by coincidence, creating a representation of the luck of chance in meeting someone in our daily lives.
Life is like a cloud that is here one moment and gone the next. Life is beautiful, but it can wither instantly too. Therefore, life can be likened to a small seed. We are constantly growing and learning to good and bad, while also learning about society through family, friends, and strangers. Molding the seed we plant in the soil. A seed is a depository of life’s energy, waiting for its destiny and the right moment to mature and bloom and show its brilliance. That is the meaning of life; that is the loveliness of life; that is the “clue” that people can find in the garden.
With this profound understanding, Lu painted flat flowers as decorations. Each flower representing a life in bloom while they presents a graceful exterior, internally they are in constant competition. Furthermore, Chang uses strong imagery and bright colors in his painting to stimulate our visual senses, and cause us to reevaluate the beauty of flowers in bloom, questing our life’s merit. Both of the artists are concerned about the concepts of life, environment and meaningful human interaction. These are the ideas they built into their ”clue” did you find it?
