吳佑杰 Wu Yu-Chieh
以複合媒材與油彩堆疊於畫布上，斑駁的透視感、線條不規則的流動、色塊躍然呈現，就像孩子一樣在畫布上無染的表達純真的一面。作品的『主題』通常是人們欣賞抽象作品時很重要的引入點，藉由文字揣測、來解讀畫面。但 吳佑杰 的作品在創作
The summer afternoon in August, Mr. Wu Yu-Chieh is painting in the studio; his 3 years old son is sitting beside and taking a pen to imitate painting as his father. I sit simply and babble with him. His painting is hard to be told the exact pattern by others; however he can explain the meaning of those simple lines by his cognitions. Take the circle and dot as an example, he would say those circles are parking lots and dots beside are cars. Few moments later, I ask him again; he answers they’re swimming pool. Children firmly believe every present feeling and are unlimited. Is this a kind of the artists’ freedom during creation?
All Mr. Wu Yu-Chieh’s abstract works are showing the present feeling, which means he never set any topics, ideas and final visual results for them. During the painting process, sometimes the brush follows the pigment makes the lines intuitively, and the colors are layered concretely; however all of them are not be painted on purpose. The abstract painting is always telling his inner intuition and consciousness.
It is painted and layered with composite materials and oil paint on the canvas. The mottled perspective, the irregularly floating lines, and the flashing colors, they are all like a child’s innocence showing on the canvas. Usually the ‘topic’ of a work is a key point leading people to appreciate a abstract painting. By the words to surmise and interpret the painting. However Mr. Wu Yu-Chieh never set any topic for his works in advance during painting process. Therefore the topic of his painting is chosen from some chapter in his favorite books or is combined with some words spontaneously. Those words express his life experience and current feeling simply.
I like this part of simple narrative for creating by him.
‘ I saw dependent, destroyed, absurd, blurry, fragmentary, various, and exhausted in life. The all memories result in current life. All I can express is what I saw. They are included the experiences which are in my past life. Invisibly and soundlessly, the experiences flash in the dark moments between waking and napping.'
