樸方異境──鄧卜君的水墨藝想

策展人/ 蕭瓊瑞

國立藝專畢業後便長期匿居花蓮的鄧卜君,以近二十年的時間,在山、石、樹、雲之間,觀照自我、對話自然,形成了台灣當代水墨的「後山傳奇」。

1960年代啟動的中國現代水墨運動,是以背離傳統「國畫」筆法的自動性技法,開創出一片嶄新的創作天地,也造就了戰後台灣現代藝術史的豐美篇章。但1957年出生的鄧卜君,卻以緜密、多樣的「筆法」,創造出另一番似古又今、似今又古的魔幻山水,讓後山曬影、方天水境,成為台灣當代水墨的樸方異境。

鄧卜君的作品,以素樸、深邃的手法,展現一種天光雲影共徘徊的奇麗境象;又以扭轉變形、無限繁衍的造形元素,讓人聯想起當代科幻電影中不可捉摸的外星世界。但鄧卜君的作品,不在著意創生駭人的虛景,而是在乎內在世界與宇宙洪荒的深沈對話與融和,帶著一份佛理、幾分詩意。

鄧卜君是近年浮現藝壇的一項驚艷,就如「花蓮」地名的充滿玄機,「花蓮」、「蓮花」、「洄瀾」、「水漾」,這樣的地方,成就了這樣的藝術;這樣的藝術,也成就了這樣的藝術家,既是在地化的,更是全球性的。

樸方.異境.一卜君,不容忽視。


A Simple yet Unusual Realm – TENG Pu-Chun’s Ink Fantasy

Curator/ HSIAO Chong-Ray

Teng Pu-Chu, has led a hermitesque life in Hualien for nearly twenty years after graduating from National Taiwan Academy of Arts, immersing himself in self-observation and dialogues with mountains, rocks, trees and clouds in nature.

The Chinese modern ink painting movement launched in the 1960s emphasized on creating new forms of ink painting with automatic techniques vastly different from traditional brushwork of the so-called “national painting,” and ushered in a new and rich chapter in Taiwan’s post-war modern art history. Contrarily, born in 1957, Teng has utilized dense and diversified “brushwork” to create his magical landscape that mixes ancient and modern styles, transforming Hualien’s natural beauty as well as its sky and water into a simple yet unusual realm in Taiwan’s art scene of contemporary ink painting.

Teng is known for using unadorned, mesmerizing techniques to produce a splendidly magical realm characterized by glistening light and rolling clouds. At the same time, he adds twistingly metamorphosing and endlessly replicating formal elements in his work, bringing to mind the unpredictable extraterrestrial world in contemporary sci-fi movie. However, Teng’s work does not focus on constructing terrifying fictional scenes but centering on deep dialogues and purposeful integration of the inner world and the boundless cosmos, exuding a sense of Buddhist wisdom and poetic beauty.

Teng has been a stunning case in the art scene in recent years. The name of “Hualien” – an intriguing place also called “Lienhua” (lotus), “Huelan” (surging currents) and “Shuiyang” (brimming water) – conveys much mysteriousness, and it is such a place that has nurtured the artist and given birth to his art, which is as much localized as it is global – this simple yet unusual realm created by Teng will always capture our eyes.


鄧卜君創作自述

藝術家/ 鄧卜君

源起
十二年前闖入現代水墨創作領域,一路走來始終抱持著傳統筆墨技巧結合西方創作觀念,做為自己的創作理念。十二年了,畫出我自己的魔幻境域。有人說是東方式的超現實,也有人說是《阿凡達》的理想世界。更有人形容是開啟《納尼亞傳奇》衣櫥門的另一時空。但無論任何的評論,都正中我創作的感覺,而這因子是「想像」,也是我最初播下的魔豆。
