Tsai Wei-Cheng – “Transforming after objects” solo exhibition is going to be opened on Jan 14th at Rich Art Gallery. This exhibition is going to be curated by Hsu Woan-Jen who is a famous art criticism professor.This is a new innovative presentation of Tsai Wei-Cheng, in his 20-year-long artistic career.“The human being is the animal of emotions, thus we will be sentimental for surrounding objects.Everyone has the emotions of “joy, anger, sorrow, fear, love, hate, desire,” and the changes of the environment make peoples’ hearts ripple and naturally stimulate the desires of the creative.Nevertheless , adhering to Oriental philosophy, Tsai Wei-Cheng holds the spirit of staying while coping with all the changes, also fully demonstrating the symbiosis and coexistence of “emotion” and “change”, creating seven new works of “Emotion-Series”.
The exhibition “Transforming after Objects” originates from “Hsieh-He six codes” and “Correspondence to the Object,” reflecting the “correspondence” with “transforming” reflecting the pursuit of connecting the internal and external self, which Tsai Wei-Cheng intended to express through his new collection.
Tsai Wei-cheng regards himself in the changing form of the Monkey King, to convey the ideas of inside and outside. This blend of subject and object is present in the performance of the artwork.
The exhibition, in essence, preserves the characteristic features of the Monkey King seventy-two series of “Journey to the West”“, “Tightening Ring”,“Golden Cudgel”.However, the shape and the appearance is different compared with the past.The artwork hasn’t been polished and decorated deliberately, leaving hand traces of the creative process. It shows an unparalleled freedom when blending and molding.Material clogging caused by the process of clotting,it highlights the bumps and lumps of mud, swaying boldness of color, like an abstract painting.It makes the artwork appear as a kind of momentum of the flow and feelings,such as the immense sands of the universe.Because of a particular cause, in a specific space-time, interlacing and forming.This is a magical moment that can not be said, the work of art will be frozen and then turned into eternity.
