黑色對於科學來說,就是指沒有可視光進入瞳孔內,在世界文明的範圍內,黑色代表凝重和深沉,未知的,恐懼的,等情緒或感官上的代表性色彩。

我以漂白水(次氯酸鈣)在黑布上創作的「人體靜物」作為系列形象,漂白水的媒材,對我而言,是一種毀滅與重生兩面並立的物質,如同百億年前的宇宙大霹靂,源於極緊密而複雜的能量,在爆破的短暫過程裡,解放時間與空間,並孕育物種與眾多文明。創作者似乎也扮演著造物主的角色,漂白水在黑布上,造成腐蝕解構的燒灼痛楚,並轉換為畫面的一抹光明,在時光與物質的層層堆疊,塑造成一個基本的形體肖像。設想在畫面佈局中,舞臺一角的微光探照,畫中的靜物逐漸有了自我思考,明白身處環境的未知黑暗,來自於權威、信仰、社會教條的不平等壓迫,開始從事抵抗與承受、排斥或適應,透過著思想,渴望將價值回歸到個體的發揮,拒絕理法的禁錮與約束。角色與現實間的沉默獨白,時而抵觸衝擊,兩者相互測探與破壞扭曲,無論如何,軀體與宇宙法則,最終將成為解構與再造的循環,而意識將不復存在。

To science, black means that there is no visible light enters pupils. In the domain of world civilization, black is, in emotions or sense organs, the representative color of solemnity, deepness, unknown, fear, etc.

I created “human body still” on black cloth with bleach (calcium hypochlorite) as the image of the series. To me, the medium of bleach is a kind of substance with two coexistent sides, destruction and regeneration. It is like the Big Bang in the universe tens of billion years ago, resulted from extreme compact and complex energy, which released time and space in the short exploding process and bred species and numerous civilizations. The creator seems also to play the role of the Creator – Bleach caused burning pain on the black cloth by corrosion and deconstruction, transformed it into brightness on the picture, and shaped it as a basic body portrait through the stacks of times and substances. Imagine that, in the picture arrangement, the still in the painting gradually has its own thought after highlighting by a gleam from a corner of the stage. It understands the unknown darkness around where it is which comes from the unequal oppressions of authority, belief, and social dogma, and starts to engage in resistance and acceptance, and repellence or adaption, via thinking, yearning to return the value to individual development and refusing the imprisonment and restriction from logos. The silent soliloquies between the role and the reality occasionally conflict and impact. Both of them are probed, destroyed, and distorted mutually. However,body and universe law will become the cycle of destruction and reconstruction in the end, and consciousness will no longer exist.
