Installation View of “The Banality Beneath the Skin” 2017
《他們的庸俗花絮》展覽紀錄

『 如果常玉畫裸女是藝術 開放藝文空間展同志情慾 』

“大家不覺得常玉畫裸女是情色,覺得是很好的藝術品,蜂擁地去看他的展覽,那麼,沒有理由當(畫裡的)主角換成男生,就覺得這個主題很怪,或這樣的創作不對,這就是明顯的一種偏見。”——台北市開放空間文教基金會執行長黃浩德

■ 陳泓圻《他們的庸俗花絮》即日起展至20日,地點在松山文創園區133號共創合作社「開放藝文空間」,詳見 https://goo.gl/j39U64

“Bold eroticism and sensuality are key words to describe the work of Chen Hung-chi (陳泓圻), so visitors are reminded that viewer discretion is advised. His obsession with the male body falls within the tradition of portraiture and still life painting, the metaphorical floral structures evoking the flowers by Georgia O’Keeffe, though packing more punch with brightly contrasting colors. The subtle sexual tension in The Banality Beneath the Skin (他們的庸俗花絮) is filled with longing and desire. While the compositions may seem direct and in your face, Chen’s poetic symbolism and motifs are well composed, combining classicism with a contemporary twist. Taboo is no longer the pressing issue in these works. There seems to be an anxiety reflected in his works, suggesting future climaxes or rejection while redefining the male gaze, a refreshing rendition of exploring sexuality in the tradition of Egon Schiele, Robert Mapplethorpe and Allen Jones.” ─── Jason Chung Tang Yen
