CHANG Kuo-Hsin, LIN Hsi-Chun
Mizuiro Workshop is delighted to present exhibition “SCAPE.” The exhibition features several series of paintings by CHANG Kuo-Hsin (b. 1954, Taiwan) and LIN Hsi-Chun (b. 1960, Taiwan), in which the artists express their new aesthetics from their life-time exploration of architecture design and art practice in both public intervention and personal realization.
Sharing a very similar background in the architecture field, a theme that underscores “SCAPE” is the sum of rationality and sensibility of CHANG and LIN’s modest concern for people and the environment.
CHANG Kuo-Hsin (b. 1954, Tainan, Taiwan) received his MA from Dept. of Fine Arts, Tainan University of Technology. Soon after he retired from the architecture career, he has been fully devoted to pursuing his artistic dream. CHANG’s work, consisting of dense collages of structural geometry, not only reflects his passion for space order , but also conveys his reverence for life.
CHANG has been very enthusiastic with the local art communities and has served as the chairman of Hua-Tuo International Art Association and Art League of Southern Taiwan.
"Abstractionism releases art from the boundary of any concepts and definitions. And art is no longer conveyed only by certain specific forms. By letting my brush respond to my heart genuinely can I create the unforeseen."
── CHANG Kuo-Hsin
LIN Hsi-Chun (b.1960, Taipei, Taiwan) holds a BFA from Department of Fine Arts of National Taiwan Normal University and a M. Arch degree from the Institute of Interior Design of Chung-Yuan Christian University. With a background in both arts, architecture design and a long-term teaching career at the architecture academy, LIN is well-known for successfully bringing a sensual and easy character out of his geometrically progressive abstract painting.
LIN has been a pioneer in the culture and art scene of Southern Taiwan; in addition to co-founding The Southern Art Magazine and having had served as the art director, he was the chairman of the Kaohsiung Art Alliance and the Modern Painting Society. He was also one of the founders of The Pier-2 Art Center of Kaohsiung.
Among many art and landscape projects LIN has been involved, Kaohsiung Central Park is one of LIN’s most famous designs in which he successfully revitalized Kaohsiung’s urban image by creating the iconic “Urban Spotlight Arcade.”
"I love abstract painting for it provides a path to explore the unknown."
