關於 「彩靈」:

「彩靈」

「在清晨的床上,我拿著水壺,把水杯添至滿溢,
發現水杯是容量,而滿溢的水是膽量。



這微妙的瞬間,我放肆地讓水沾濕我手,
流落到我的衣裳,滲入我的床鋪。



這一刻,杯子不再是杯子,我不再是我,我們都成為了房間中的水。



我們都被外形教導了概念,

我們都被外形劃分了疆界。」

About "Cai Ling":

"Cai Ling"

"In an early morning, I was sitting in my bed, holding a water bottle, filling an empty glass with water till it spilled over.

I suddenly realized that spilled water was my courage that had been storing in the glass.



I let water dripping off my hand freely, falling onto my clothes, gradually seeping through my bed.

At that moment I realized that the glass was no longer a glass; I was also no longer myself. The glass and I became the water in the room.



Our physical appearance affects our conceptual thinking; 

Our physical appearance divides our boundaries."

關於展覽:

「彩靈」是藝術家辛朝殷於探索生命、靈氣及內在價值時所建立的一系列作品。



「彩靈」是創作者對內在力量的幻想,停留著內在力量超脫物外、湧溢而出的瞬間。這一瞬間流露了萬物內在的色彩,以及彩靈不被外形所限的純美。



作品以超現實的想像及畫風,試圖將萬物的靈氣,透過藝術語言呈現觀眾眼前。創作者利用豐富的色彩表現生命的絢爛,並以無形的流態隱喻靈魂超脫物外的自由。



整個「彩靈」展覽展出創作者三個思想階段的混合媒介作品,分別為 "起程"、"香港" 及 "回心", 當中包括油畫、塑膠顏料畫及木顏色畫等。



"起程" 是創作者描繪彩靈從一系列舊車中湧溢而出,表現出創作者希望乘坐著這些車輛,將彩靈引發,把生命的色彩帶動起來。



"香港" 是創作者透過於香港生活中的一些觀察所啟發的系列。不同的物件選材分別代表著創作者流失的童年、親人、習慣以及回憶。



最後,創作者於 "回心" 階段作品中尾尾道出他對彩靈單純的體會。



這三個階段的作品隱約地透露了創作者對生命的好奇、探索以及反省。「彩靈」系列常選用已淘汰或面臨淘汰的物件作為創作軸心。創作者認為縱然時代可以把一切流汰,被流汰的都只是物象,而蘊藏於內在強大的靈氣卻是永不磨滅。

About the show:

The "Cai Ling", which literally means “Colorful Spirit”, series were created while artist SAN Chiu Yan was exploring life, soul and inner value. "Cai Ling" is the inner power within all creations imagined by San Chiu. He captured the moment when the colorful souls of daily objects burst out from their physical shells.



Through his surrealistic imagination and painting style, the artist attempts to present the spirit of creation in front of the audience. San Chiu brings out the beauty of life through the richness in colors; through some in-figurative flowing motion, he attempts to implicitly present the freedom that lies within these colorful souls.



The "Cai Ling" exhibition presents the three stages of thought by the artist - “Embarkment”, “Hongkong” and “Returning”, featuring artworks which include oil paintings, acrylic paintings and color pencil drawings.

"Embarkment" series show a bunch of colorful souls bursting out from some old or obsolete vehicles.  San Chiu is hoping that by sitting inside these cars, he could "start-up" those colorful souls, and therefore the colors in his life.



"Hongkong" series was inspired through the artist's observation of the daily life in Hong Kong. The choosing of different subject matters in the pieces represents the losing of childhood, relatives, habit and memories of the artist.



"Returning" series disclose the artist's pure feeling towards Cai Ling.

These three stages implicitly show the artist's curiosity, exploration and self-reflection towards life.

Objects and things that were abandoned or will soon be abandoned acts as the subject matter in the "Cai Ling" series. San Chiu believes that although everything may be abandoned eventually, what really being abandoned are only their physical shells, whereas their strong inner spirit would last forever.
