在「點線面、黑灰白中,架構屬於我的空間」。空間時而重疊穿透、時而重組放鬆,我雖然表現的是“空間”,但並非只畫“空間”,是想表現在空間之中、作品之中我總總的情緒,和觀者分享我對於創作的闡釋 ─── 那對我來說無限自由的創作、徬徨茫然的低潮、與頃刻之間想起就充滿無限感恩的心。

如果說生活的核心是創作,而創作的核心是內容,內容的核心是想法。生活中的一筆一畫,隨著日升月落,在一件一件的作品中不斷累積輕重,構成故事。形成風景。那一幅幅歷年的心情(畫作),是我內心當中最直接、同時也最撫慰我心的〈故事‧風景〉。

面對生活中的種種感觸、情感、想法與情緒,無論是在休息、旅行或是創作,總是經由沉澱之後,才逐漸架構了當下對自我認知與確認的空間。有時是一次美麗的夕陽落海、有時是創作上面一次次的失敗,才慢慢地增加對生活與創作的厚度;面對生活中不順遂與挫折的堅持與度過,也才成就作品中對自我生命認知的溫度。

在一次次的嘗試創作中,逐漸在作品中加入鉛筆炭筆。鉛筆炭筆的筆觸和質地,那是有別於壓克力顏料的繪畫性和溫度,是更趨近手感的溫度。在畫布的網孔布紋中揮散開來。

在平面畫布中我試著將抽象的想法建構出來,使感想具象化、抒發情緒。畫面中點線面與黑灰白是我慣常使用的基調。有時架構出絕對的空間;有時卻似將空間壓縮壓平,點線面黑灰白的排列組合描繪出似實似虛、非實非虛的空間,我總是嘗試在這有限的顏色與形式間找尋對生活、創作、生命的許多可能性,和在它們之間的關聯性,再將它們投射在我所表現的媒介(畫面)之上。而創作對我來說,已經漸漸屬於生活的一部分,密不可分。

期待總能一直細細品嘗生活、細細品嘗創作,並努力堅持的創作下去。
