透過油畫,艾丹探索了廣泛的繪畫語言,從近乎攝影的寫實主義,到富有表現力的抽象筆觸。 在尋找藝術中的「美」的過程中,艾丹探索了花卉主題、它們的不同種類及其象徵意義。 通過這次展覽,艾丹的畫作在歐洲和亞洲的古典和現代繪畫傳統之間,以及不同花卉物種之間,建立了持續的對話。


With oil paintings Daniel explores a wide range of pictorial languages, ranging from almost photographic realism to expressive abstract brushstrokes. In his search for ‘beauty’ in art, Daniel explores floral themes, their various species and their symbolisms. Through this exhibition, Daniel’s paintings establish a constant dialogue between European and Asian classical and modern pictorial traditions, as well as between the different floral species.

雷明思將西方美學與台灣當地材料相結合,混合兩種方法創造出獨特的彩繪瓷器作品。其中大部分作品都是在上色前雕刻而成,通過瓷器本身具備的靜雅底蘊,結合艷麗花朵的雕繪,為瓷器添上來自大地的生氣,也使雕面上眾芳奪艷的花多一分儒雅氣質。雷明思希望他的作品不僅具備觀賞性外,還能融入在日常生活中,從觸覺的回饋中去感受,在與環境的交融中去享受。


雷明思的作品,以陶瓷來捕捉花朵極具魔力的本質。 陶瓷的媒材使用,帶來了立體的效果,為藝術品增添了深度和質感。 藝術家展示了花朵的複雜細節,從嬌嫩的罌粟花瓣到百合花的大膽色彩,以及存在於他想像世界中的各種奇妙花朵。


Marcel fuses both western aesthetics with locally found materials in Taiwan, mixing both methods to create unique painted porcelain works. Many of the works are carved before pigment is applied onto them, thus an experience for the senses of sight and touch. Marcel wishes his artworks to not only be looked at but also felt and enjoyed in the everyday. Porcelain is delicate and elegant like flowers. The audience are able to feel the petals of each flower carved onto the surface of many of his artwork.


Marcel artworks captures the magical essence of flowers with porcelain. The use of porcelain allows for a three-dimensional quality that adds depth and texture to the artwork. The artist showcase intricate details of flowers, from the delicate petals of a poppy to the bold colors of lilies together with flowers that exist in his imaginary world.

艾丹近幾年創作著重於形體的表現並力求寫實,在新的創作系列中,以花為題,試圖尋求全新個人風格,同時探索其照相寫實主義的界線。在此次的創作中,藝術家試著不要被某種主題所束縛,或必須遵造照相寫實主義風格,而是試著以抽象的方式,強調花的美感。在形體與抽象概念界線的探索當中,同時也去思考「美」這個概念的易逝及死亡,希冀創造出當代的「虛空畫」(Vanitas)。

創作過程中,影像是透過層層堆疊,將純然抽象的點綴畫面融入,凸顯出主體,形體與抽象兩造相互對話、共生,其交集之處則透過油畫使用的材料、筆觸以及色彩的運用而呈現出來。


Daniel Arroyo’s art practice has mainly been focusing on figuration and strict realism. In his new series of floral-themed paintings, he is in search of a new personal form, a meditation on the language of painting pushing his familiar boundaries of photorealism in art.


Daniel seeks not to be a slave to the motif or the photographic model, but introduce the abstract to come to the fore and take a strong presence to voice the beauty of flowers.


This exploration of the limits between the figurative and abstraction goes in parallel on a conceptual level with a reflection on mortality and the ephemeral temporality of beauty and thus creates a contemporary form of classic vanitas.


The images are built from an endless succession of superimposed layers, interspersing and merging layers of pure abstraction with others where the figurative motif prevails, forming a dialogue and a symbiosis between both realities; where the meeting point is the pure material of the painting, the physicality of the brushstroke and the sensuality of the color.

《鏡中花園》同時包含了畫布和陶瓷上的繪畫,提供了觀者多種維度,既在疆界上有所突破,亦突破了花卉作為藝術主題的美麗和多樣性。


Through a combination of paintings on canvas and on porcelain, A Garden Through The Mirror offers multiple dimensions that pushes both the boundaries and the beauty and versatility of flowers as a subject in art.
