張嘉穎
CHANG, Chia-Ying

出生於台灣台北,畢業於臺南藝術大學造形藝術研究所、臺北藝術大學美術學院油畫組。

作品獨具精緻華麗的視覺風格,顯露其純熟駕馭繪畫技法,穿梭於古典與當代之間。嚴謹的構圖裡,充滿挪用自著名童話故事的元素和東西方神話的符徵,隱微指涉多重意涵。在甜美色調的異世界裡,一切時間和空間的線索都斷裂,也讓邏輯缺失的敘事益發耐人尋味。不固定符旨的模式,以神祕學的表徵,誘發觀者自行想像,讓現實中無法顯現的真實感受呼之欲出,進而探討個人和集體的潛意識,乃至宇宙與生命之間能量的緊密關聯。

曾於臺東美術館、伊通公園、台北當代藝術館舉辦個展及參與臺北市立美術館、國立臺灣美術館、高雄市立美術館等處之大型聯展,並受邀赴美國、瑞士、義大利、南韓及中國等地展出。

Born in Taipei in 1982, Chang Chia-Ying is a representative figure of the animation aesthetics in Taiwan. Chang received her BA in Oil Painting from Taipei National University of the Arts in 2005, and obtained an MFA in Plastic Arts from Tainan National University of the Arts in 2008. She was awarded the prize of Honorable Mention in Taipei Arts Award in 2006, and her works have been shown in New York, Switzerland, Italy, and China.

The unique style of Chang’s painting lies in her fairytale narratives. However, these fragmented and lost narrative clues render the meaning of the fairytales destabilized, and open up an intriguing imaginative space. Chang often appropriates well-known Eastern and Western fairytales. The characters in her elaborately created images always carry multiple implications. The greatest feature of her work is the imaginative, slightly eccentric images painted with superb skills and exact classical forms and composition.
