“Sound of mountains” Solo Exhibition of Tung-Jinn Yeh
Tung-Jinn Yeh uses oil pastels to create special textures on screens. The colors are elegant and fresh. The simple landscape composition exudes peace and calm. “Sound of mountains” is the title of Yeh Tung-Jinn’s recently completed series. The mountain remains the theme in his paintings; but contains increasingly bold depictions of the horizon into two halves in order to form fields of beach and broad sky. Tung-Jinn Yeh graduated with a degree in Mathematics from the National Taiwan Normal University before becoming a math teacher. Upon retiring, he settled amongst the mountains of Puli, becoming a full time artist. Although mathematics and art are often considered vastly different disciplines, Yeh sees a similarity in their thought processes. Yeh’s works contain misty forests and mountains, glowing moonlight, silhouettes of birds. Yeh uses oil pastels to portray his detailed landscapes, transcending reality to accurately represent his personal interpretations of the tranquil scenes.
“Art test is negative“ Solo Exhibition of Huang Fa-Cheng
The artist who participates in this solo exhibition is Huang Fa Cheng, the first prize winner of the 1st “GO‧TO TAIWAN” Huang’s creations focus on thinking about the interaction between human and nature, as well as current events and environmental issues. The exhibition will be divided into three themed series: artificial scenery, lonely scenery, and pandemic scenery series, respectively. Huang uses objects and scenes from his surroundings as inspiration. The elements he utilises, such as swimming pools, sidewalk trees, gardens, are all physical presences that either obstruct or replace nature. By adding in elements of human society and behaviour, either explicitly or metaphorically, Huang creates a sense of ambiguity on his canvases as he interrogates the contradicting scenes and feelings that exist as a result of civilisation.
