Opening Reception: 15:00-17:00,20 Oct. 2019


The Shih Cheng Wen Art Show
Artist Shih Cheng Wen was born in the historic district of Dadaocheng, and was raised among the colors and designs of his family-owned textile store. This unique childhood experience helped to inspire his deep appreciation for beauty, allowing him to develop a unique understanding for colors. Attracted by the simple design of the hotel logo during his visits to the Cosmos Creation: Hua Shan Din, he began to create a series of artworks in the bold colors and abstract style of Piet Mondrian. Shih also brought the hotel mascot Baobby to life with vibrant colors and strokes while retaining its adorable cuteness. Also on display at the Shih Cheng Wen Art Show will be pieces that showcase the artist’s love for his hometown Dadaocheng, gloriously illustrated in a lively abundance of colors and carefree lines.

Dadaocheng native color artist Shih Cheng Wen
Born in the colorful and historic district of Dadaocheng, Shih has been immersed in a world of color since birth. His father’s textile shop opened his eyes to them, while the different hues and shades shown through the blue smoke of the burning incense from nearby temples provided a key to self expression, where his shy and reserved nature found a way to communicate with the world around him.


During his work as a men’s wear fabric designer at his father’s textile shop, Shih was found to have a unique knack for being able to mix any color that he laid eyes on. He has teasingly said that he felt obsessed by colors. He mixed his thoughts and passion into the process, and created a memorable chapter in the history of Taiwan’s textile industry. Having spent his entire life in Dadaocheng, Shih is especially adept at creating artwork of architecture. From the past to the present, each piece showcases his deep love for his hometown. Through a constant dialog with color, beauty is his daily companion.

20190429李信慧 寶寶華山町歷險記


Exhibition


Watching my nephews grow from helpless babies to bouncing, lively children, and my kin folks going through countless sleep-deprived nights as clueless new parents to become parenting experts, being around my 5 nephews has given me a different perspective on life.
Thanks to these little boys, I had the rare opportunity of a different life experience, which inspired me to create the series of art that is magical yet real, practical yet full of childish fun.

From the artist:
Urban sketching tells a visual story of the moment within each image. I often carry with me simple sketching tools like a couple of fountain pens, or I would simply pick up sticks from the ground, and sketch down what I see while I’m on the road, capturing the cultural and social scenes and phenomena in cities of villages. The satisfaction of capturing images in the moment is what every artist searches for.

Sketching has become a popular form of drawing in recent years. Its essence is to quickly capture what you see in front of your eyes, and heavily relies on the theory of perspective drawing to create correct form and structure. Perspective drawing provides a foundation for the accuracy of dimension, and is the basis for a sensible and intelligent image structure. Style-wise, I have preferred to use dried branches or sticks dipped in ink to create quick, carefree and lively lines in my drawings, while expressing my thoughts and ideas on the local culture or history, instilling a sense of rich humanity into my creations.

Capturing the Aura of Spaces by Photographer Wei-ming Yuan

All of these photographs were shot en route, on a journey. For me, travel photography seeks out soulful resonance in an unfamiliar place. And so, the images captured are a result of a specific anticipation, and simultaneously, present a perpetual surprise. The presence of this sense of surprise indirectly attests to the unique experience of being physically present in the actual environment.

A scene first triggers visual interest, followed by observations that reveal a hidden life phenomenon within the scene. The elements that make up the scene begin to dialogue, until a relationship and context begins to emerge. Photography is the use of images to document the varied and manifold dramas that occur within a scene.

Capturing the aura of spaces

Opening Reception: 14:00-16:00,14 Jul. 2018
Seminar: 14:00-16:00, 1 Sep. 2018
