A mouth 一支嘴

「一張嘴」近二十年來,台灣在經濟、社會、政治、國際各方面都遇到了許多問題與困難,二次政黨輪替並沒有為台灣解決這些問題,人民對政治人物與媒體失去了信任,近年來,更暴發了幾次公民自主性發起的抗議事件,人民對生活充滿無力感。「一張嘴」最初的發想即來自對政治人物的厭倦,除了能說會道之外,他們沒有眼睛也沒有耳朵,張口便說著虛假的話,承諾著無法兌現的承諾。在畫作表現方面,每一張除了只有「一張嘴」這個共同處之外,均尋求不同的畫法,以讓每幅作品都有自己的獨特性,當然,這跟我喜歡嘗試不同表現方式的個性也有很大關係。

"A Mouth"Over the past twenty years, Taiwan has encountered problems and difficulties in its economy, society, politics, international affairs, and many other aspects. The second "political power transfer" did not bring a solutions to these problems, however. People have lost their faith in politicians and the media. Several citizen protests against the government in recent years have further indicated people's sense of powerlessness toward their lives. "A Mouth" was inspired by people's discontent with politicians. Apart from being quick-tongued and argumentative, they have no eyes or ears. They speak using deceptive words and make empty promises. All the paintings under this topic have one thing in common: they have only "a mouth" on their face. Aside from this shared feature, I applied different ways and techniques to each painting, trying to bring out their own uniqueness. Certainly, such a choice in trying different artistic expressions has a lot to do with my personality.
