【葉 色 餘 光】 蔡獻友 個展

選自【植物的變形】歌德

當破土迎接第一縷陽光時,它整個形態毫無藝術性可言

植物之子,也如人類之子一樣

幼苗愈長愈高,把各個器官組合成整體

再反復、再創造

可能發育成無窮盡的不同形態。

你看:仿佛每片葉都被精心雕琢

鋸齒狀葉緣,波形缺刻,針狀葉片

在葉柄支撐下,與整棵植株交織為整體

命中注定!

陽光無私的關照著大地,溫熱著生命,樹葉上殘留略顯的餘光,註記著葉片自身的存在,我如是凝視。每個生命注定是獨特的風景,樹是如此,人亦是。蔡獻友將個人生命的潛思與植物的生命力投射在作品裡,他的創作脈絡總圍繞著自然,看似內斂卻又略帶神秘,是首讚頌生命的詩歌,富含純粹情感和耐人尋味的哲理。2011「青葉落白」、2012「葉,落錯」、2013~2014「植.樹」這三個歷程是透過植物對人的逼視,追尋人與自然精神的純一性。2015「飲清露」是領悟山中草木之蒼勁,孑然於天地,不時領受著疾風,入夜以水露養生。將自體化身自然,將自然融入本體,所以能與自然共享天成!在創作中獲得瀟灑而豁達的龐大生命力。2016近作「墨蘊」系列,在圖象與背景色彩的對話中越發其深邃。捨下具璀璨東方文化的色彩,試從人類學考古的視角,去剖析在大地色中積層的人類文明。畫面背景的黑灰土壤色,如同翻閱的歷史之書,超越了時間的排序!

 

‘Komorebi’

A solo exhibition by Tsai Hsien-Yiu

Artless the shape that first bursts into light-

The plant-child, like unto the human kind-

Sends forth its rising shoot that gathers limb

To limb, itself repeating, recreating,

In infinite variety: ‘tis plain

To see, each leaf elaborates the last-

Serrated margins, scalloped fingers, spikes

That rested, webbed, within the nether organ-

At length attaining preordained fulfillment.

-Excerpt from “The Metamorphosis of Plants” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe-

 

We are unable to find an English equivalent of komorebi, which is a Japanese word that describes the sunshine filtering through the leaves of threes. However, it is only fitting that we use such word to introduce Tsai Hsien-Yiu’s works that endeavor to capture the interplay between the light, the leaves and the human beings.

 

Look at the sunshine, how gloriously it arrays the earth and how charitably it delights every living creature. The komorebi documents the existence of the blades above and of us as we gaze. Each life is destined to be a unique landscape itself and so is the case with every single tree and human being. In this exhibition, Tsai’s works reflect the subconscious mind of his private life combined with the perseverant strength of plants. His works around the nature, seemingly introvert but also slightly mystique, are in praise of the creator of life, full of unexpected emotion and intriguing philosophy.
