It’s sunrise. The sun is shining upon the Garden of Eden, and the people just awoke are singing joyfully of good harvest. Do you still remember when you first felt happiness?
March is a musical form of strong rhythm. Initially it was created for the combative lifestyle of military troops to motivate the spirit; it was later used also to express collective strength and common determination. So is art. “The foundation of art is the radiant power of humanity,” says Tolstoy. Entering the pleasant art world, you are filled with vital powers; with the fullest of energy, everything is so full of hope. You open the first page to a fairy tale and smile; along the pleasant melody, you begin a little summer trip with the best friends of Mr. in search for all the little happiness. And the red sun hangs afar above the ground, gorgeous like a dream, as if it is telling Wang Pan Youn that displacement is actually the takeoff of sailing a thousand miles. Or you step into Kusama Yayoi’s fantastic pumpkin field; it is so simple and orderly, but it’s also lush that it fascinates you. Yoshitomo Nara’s big-eyed kids are wild yet innocent as ever, flying in the light aircraft high in the sky. As for Yoshitaka Amano’s glittering, pretty nymphs, their bright, watery yet seeming wicked eyes make us curious for a peek into their secrets. An attempt to rid himself of all restraints, in the forest of desires, Chiharu Nishizawa reveals his constant pursuit of the incredible epic inner world. We also see Shintaro Miyake as the captain of the pirate ship, aspiring to become king in the paradise at sea. Then we step into the deep of Kwon Ki Soo’s colorful bamboo forest like we are Donguli who broke into the Peach Garden by mistake, and we bask in simple joy just like Donguli. Elsewhere, Huang Ming Chang’s water buffaloes are taking the cool pleasure by the pond in a summer afternoon; the breeze makes ripples in the pond, and the dragonflies are dancing among the lotus leaves. And we find Eddie Kang seeking balance between planes and three dimensions, with his particular humor, disinclined to lose himself in the city and become the puppet under any discipline. We also find the spectacle of Ye Yong Qing, in which he searches for a modern spirit in the Song garden and gently places the universe in his chest. Or, in regular order with self-comfort, with his natural romanticism, and with a rich philosophy of life embedded underneath, Kim Tschang Yeul tells the story of Thukral & Tagra.
Nothing is definite and absolute in art. In moments of thought and emotion, we hum pleasant melodies and board onto the wild train. Together with 14 Taiwanese and international artists, Metaphysical Art Gallery invites you for an experience the march of happiness around the world.
