About Artists

霍剛 HO Kan

1932 年生,來自中國南京。1949 年隨國民政府來台,1950 年進入台北師範學校藝術科就讀。 因緣際會受教於「台灣現代藝術導師」李仲生,以超現實主義畫風聞名,是 1960 年代達到高 峰的「台灣現代藝術運動」代表人物之一。1964 年前往義大利米蘭,畫風蛻變為幾何抽象。 幼年時期的書法與金石學的學習經驗,以及超現實畫風的創作基底,為抽象幾何表現提供了養 份,允稱為東方幾何抽象的代表。今年,霍剛受邀參加KIAF 2017「藝術家論壇:東方抽象藝術對談(Eastern Asian Abstract Art Conversation)」,將與日本「具像派」代表藝術家松谷武判(Takesada MATSUTANI),以及韓國「單色派」代表藝術家朴栖甫(PARK Seo Bo)共同參與座談。霍剛作為台灣著名「東方畫會」的藝術家代表,參與本次台日韓三方知名大師級藝術家的分享與交流,再次見證其蔚為華人幾何抽象代表的地位與實力。

Ho Kan was born in Nanjing, China in 1932. In 1949, Ho settled down in Taiwan with the Nationalist Government, and entered the Department of Fine Arts, Taiwan Provincial Normal School in 1950. He had studied under “the master of Taiwanese modern art,” Li Chun-shan, and had been known for his surrealist painting. Ho’s painting of surrealism made him one of the representative figures in the Taiwanese modern art movement, which peaked in the 1960s. In 1964, Ho went to study in Milan, and his style gradually shifted to geometric abstraction. Ho’s learning of calligraphy and seal carving at a younger age and his grasp of surrealist painting helped pave the way for his later painting of geometric abstraction, rendering him the master of Eastern geometric abstraction.

 李光裕 LEE Kuang-Yu


Lee Kuang-Yu was born in 1954 in Taiwan. Following graduation in Taiwan in 1975 , he went to Spain to study western sculptural technique and theory in Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando and Universidad Complutense de Madrid respectively and studied with celebrated sculptor Toledo. On the level of sculptural language, his work opens up the enclosed structure of sculpture with his characteristic techniques. It creates the unique form, style, and concept of the “void,” and demonstrates “the concept of silent void in the Oriental culture” that embodies the state of unifying the object and the self. It not only displays aesthetic values but also reveals the artist’s contemplation on the state of life at that moment, conveying contemporary social implications. His work has previously been exhibited in New York, Venice, Spain, Austria, Japan and Singapore. This year, Lee was invited by the National Pavilion of San Marino to hold the exhibition To Have and Have Not in 2017 Venice Biennale. His works can be seen in the public spaces or National Taiwan University Hospital MRT station, on Civic Boulevard, and at National University of Kaohsiung. Within Taiwan, three major galleries have collected many of his works.
