無論是誰,只要他還活著,你就不能稱他是幸福的。
——希臘箴言

白石畫廊(台北)榮幸地宣布將於2018年4月14—5月13日為藝術家黃宇興舉辦台灣首次個展「黃金之國」。此次展覽將展出黃宇興近期新作,集中呈現了藝術家個人創作中的最新變化與階段性面貌。

黃宇興1975年出生於北京,2000年畢業於中央美術學院壁畫系,現工作生活於北京。以獨特的螢光色彩體系體現其各階段之感受及需求,他曾表示螢光色帶有一種被濃縮後或是激發出來的生命力。其作品或以單獨要素變形重構或將各種元素整合重現,不停嘗試挑戰新的視覺體驗,然其主軸一直緊扣「對於人的理解」此一大方向。

其近期創作依然將「時間之永恒輪迴」同「人性之複雜」間的內在張力作為精神內核。在人類歷史的長河中,曾有諸多盛極一時的偉大文明被冠以「黃金之國」的盛名,而這一稱謂亦是對我們現今所處時代的絕妙隱喻。然而無可避免的,所有如日中天的「黃金之國」最終仍將盛極而衰皆歸虛無,而其衰敗無疑皆肇始於人之墮落。

就此,「人」的形象再一次顯現於黃宇興的畫布之上,回歸到我們的凝視之中。我們得以觀看的既是他人,亦是自我。如果「肉身」永遠無法擺脫其命定的有限性,那麽個體之選擇是否仍有足夠的意義?人的有限性是否仍能成為其存在的基石?面對這些苦澀的詰問,「黃金之國」仿佛一束投向那片幽邃之地的微光,為我們提供了某種體悟與理解的可能。

Whitestone Gallery Taipei is honored to announce the exhibition — Kingdom of Gold, Huang Yuxing’s first solo exhibition in Taiwan. This exhibition will feature 15 recent works focusing on the latest changes and different phases of his creative journey, and will be held from April 14 to May13, 2018.

Huang Yuxing was born in 1975 in Beijing, he graduated from the Department of Mural Painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2000, currently lives and works in Beijing. He uses an extinguish system of fluorescent colors to reflect his different states in life, he once said that fluorescent colors have a powerful vitality that seemed to have been condensed or highly evoked. His works are composed of either repetition of a deformed individual element, or reconstructed / integrated various elements. He constantly tries to bring up new visual experiences, however, the idea of “understanding of others” remains the fundamental theme of his creation.

In his recent works, he focuses on the inner tension between “the eternal cycles of time” and “complexity of human nature”. In the long course of human history, there have been many great civilizations that have crowned with the name of “golden kingdom”, this is also an excellent metaphor for the era in which we live. However, all the “golden kingdom” is inevitably destined to ruin and come to nothing – as the result of the fall of men.

In this regard, the image of “man” once again appeared on Huang Yuxing’s canvas and returned to our gaze. If the human body can never be free from the limit of immortality, does the individual’s choice remain significant? Could such limit of man still be a cornerstone of his existence? In the face of the bitter inquiries, “Kingdom of Gold” is like a beam of light projecting towards the gloom of quiet land, providing us the possibilities of a certain comprehension and understanding.
