[ 藝術家介紹 ]
李光裕 LEE, Kuang-Yu (1954-)
1954 年生於高雄內惟。以東方思惟結合西方技法 著名的雕塑家,曾於紐約、威尼斯、西班牙、奧 地利、日本、新加坡等地舉行展覽。1980 年代畢 業於西班牙聖費南度皇家藝術學院及國立馬德里 大學美術學院碩士班,回國後任教台灣藝術大學、 台北藝術大學教授雕塑專科 20 餘年,是將西方雕 塑觀念與技法引進台灣雕塑界的代表人物。
2006 年離開教職後,李光裕深居於汐止山上的工作園區,地偏心遠,促成其後作品的重要蛻變, 一改渾重厚實之美,而以虛實交錯的結構,靈變地塑寫種種意在物外的世間情態。藉由心境、山 境與作品意境之間的層層映照與對話,他創造出 立基於西方雕塑技法,卻充滿東方人文意涵的作品風格,為「東西融合」此一概念的成熟體現。
Born in Neiwei, Kaohsiung in 1954, Lee Kuang-Yu is a renowned sculptor who integrates Eastern philosophy and Western techniques. He has held solo exhibitions in New York, Venice, Spain, Austria, Japan, Singapore, etc. Lee graduated from Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Spain, and obtained his MFA from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain in the 1980s. After returning to Taiwan, he taught sculpture at Taipei National University of the Arts and National Taiwan University of Arts for over twenty years. He is deemed a representative sculptor that has imported Western sculptural concepts and techniques to Taiwan.
After retiring from teaching, Lee has been living and working in the mountains in Xizhi, and the seclusion of living in the remote area promoted the important transformation of his work. The artist used to depict weighty and substantial beauty; now, he portrays worldly existences and their implications in a subtle way and with sculpture interwoven with physical structure and blankness. Through the contrast and dialogue among the state of mind, the mountainous landscape, and the artistic conception of his work, he has created a unique style that integrates Western sculptural skills and Eastern humanistic meanings, fully embodying the perfect unison of the East and the West.
