About The Artwork

The term comes from Daoist theories about the relationships between discourses, ideas or meanings, and images that symbolize profound meaning in The Book of Changes. From the Wei, Jin to the Tang Dynasty, poetry critics sought “the image beyond an image, the scene beyond a scene” in order to pursue the spiritual implications and the beauty of images that are beyond textual descriptions. This term gives expression to the artistic and aesthetic tastes and ideals of the Chinese nation. Each piece of artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. NOTE: The images in context are not to scale and are for display purposes only.

張樹光  中国当代摄影艺术家 男,1984年出生于福建福州,从事摄影艺术23年。现创作有「見無所見」「無生花」「如是觀」「象外」「藏山」「臨川」「離相」「樹光」等系列作品,展陈于树光美术馆。 当代艺术语境下摄影的目的,早已不再是再现我们已经拥有的现实世界。当代艺术以非认知和非智性的方式,进行感受与感知的创造。与序列化的、日常化的事物所不同,艺术能以其“纯粹视觉”来呈现画面。随机性如波洛克的创作,光影的实验成为可能。碎片化与流动的创作语言,幻化成万物生成与消逝的风景。 In the context of contemporary art, photography no longer merely serves to represent the real world. Artists experiment with different media and methods to create in affective and perceptive way. Art can be “Purely Visual” and random like Pollock, distant from the orderly everyday objects. 在艺术家树光的作品中,画面的素材——颜色、肌理、光线等短暂地脱离了它们本身的现实环境,我们看到的只是“观看”本身。艺术与哲学的观看,在于超越生命之“所是”的潜能、变化与差异的可能性,其超越了我们日常生活经验的世界,具有理解潜在世界的潜力。艺术家作品中的观看(“见”),或许即是图像本身的意义所指。 In artist Shuguang’s works, elements including color, texture and light are taken out from their original environment, forcing the viewers to observe. Fragmented and ever-changing images consolidate into a landscape of becoming and fading.
