About artist

The reason why I chose stranger introvert as my artist name is because introvert is one of my personalities.at the same time introvert means that i need to be open minded to the unknown ,to explore and to discuss it. Meanwhile, stay suspicious of something I already know,to research and analyze it.

Nowadays, The world is full of anxiety, fear and destruction. Therefore,creating a neutral and relaxed space as a carrier to contain the feelings people experienced in this uncontrollable and versatile world is important for me. Despite maintaining the peaceful and balanced mentality by myself,extending the possibilities of resilience and inclusiveness art works can create is crucial for me too.

The quiet and stillness of the graphic works may be a resting place for this misleading and information explosion society. After taking a break from the fierce reality, we can continue to pursue the truth in our heart with more courage and determination .

I hope that my creation can maintain sincere and gentle.Meanwhile,continuing to record the story of modern life.

About works

I create four series which are”Space for soul””Bole””human”and “life series”.  My concept is from Henry Gleitman’s book “psychology”. He mentions that when individuals have their own tangible or intangible space, conflict will lessen.

Below are  these four series detailed concepts.

Space for soul

Struggling with power and violence is what we face in the modern world every day. Living under this condition,people always try their best to conquer the difficulties and strive for whom they care and love at the same time. Consequently,taking care of ourselves becomes the least important thing in our daily life.

Creating a quiet and peaceful space in this chaotic world is important for me. “Space for soul” is the series that I hope I can give not only myself but also viewers a space for the exhausted modern life. After taking care of ourselves, we will have more inner energy to fight for what we believe and protect who we love.

Bole

Ancient sage once said that “Strong horses are not rare.However,the man who can recognize the strong horses is rare”. The man was called BOLE by people  at the time. BOLE is considered a star that takes care of the sky horse.

This series I want to record the thing that is always being ignored. I desperately hope my effort of magnifying the beauty I saw can be seen too. Not the shallow visual beauty but the beauty and kindness that glimmer in this cruel world.

human

Human’s images have been in my paintings several times. In the process, I dull several characters on purpose, such as sexual characteristics and wearings. Except for the reason I don’t want to stabilize human beings,the most important thing is that I hope I can create a place that stays open and private at the same time. Viewers can throw their mental burdens away and enter different scenes in the paintings comfortably.

life series

In the process of creating artworks, the esteem toward life and spirits is one of my main philosophies. As a result,I create Stranger Introvert as my pseudonym. Stranger means I have to be open minded and to be questionable both the thing that I already knew and the thing I am not familiar with. Meanwhile,I try my best to invest and examine the world.

Everything has its own spirit, the reason why I didn’t give this series’ paintings their respective names is that every life is tremendously complicated. Instead of defining or delivering any view to the viewers,creating the unique connection between viewers and paintings is more important to me.

There are different shapes and spirits of animals and plants in the artworks. For me,sensing the spirits is more important than sensing the shapes for me. Despite recording the scenes, observing the situation of animals and plants living in a mutual space in the city is what I want to display too. Even though some spirits claim to be harmful to humans, they still have the right to live in the city and they are desperately trying to survive.For me, their life is precious and beautiful to be recorded too.

Whether known or unknown, I wish I stayed brave to see life’s light and empathy  life’s dim.

在創作中堅定的相信真誠的力量,希望呈現不隨波逐流,不譁眾取寵的溫柔與對生命的尊重。

  內向陌生人的代號源自於對自身的期許,內向一方面是本身的人格特色,另一方面是期許自己能成為一個不會只顧著輸出而無法輸入他人感受的創作者,陌生人則代表的是對未知的事抱持開放的心而去探索與討論,而對已知的熟悉的事物隨時抱持懷疑而去研究與檢驗。

當代世界充滿不安恐懼及破壞,所以對我來說更要創作出一個中性的空間當載體去涵融難以掌控的現況,除了找回自身的安穩及平衡,更想將藝術的包容性及韌性用創作去延展開來,平面作品的安靜靜止,或許少了當代追求的五感刺激與實驗性,但卻希望其中的溫吞與開放性對觀者來說能成為這個資訊爆炸真假難辨的世界裡一個腦部的休憩站,休憩後再繼續提起勇氣與決心去追逐心中最想找到的真理。

  我的著作以”心理學”中提到的領域(territory)概念為核心延伸出(人),(靈魂空間),(生命系列),(伯樂)等油畫系列,此”領域”的概念提及當生命與生命間有著有形或無形的空間,就會相對減少衝突的發生。

以下為”領域”四系列的介紹

  • 靈魂空間

世界從微觀到宏觀都充斥著許多權力與暴力的拉扯,在這樣的時空背景下,人們要一邊承受與努力克服障礙,一邊拚盡全力保護自己所愛的人事物,常常把自己擺到了最後。

  這個系列的創作,便是期望給予觀者一個放任本我的空間。

人體的形象多次出現在我的創作中,創作過程中,我削弱了一些特徵,不論是性特徵或是一些衣著及裝飾物,除了不想將其標籤化,更大的原因是,對我來說,我希望創造出同時開放與保有隱私的角色,讓觀者能拋開生命的包袱自在的與創作產生連結,是一個將話語權交給觀者自行輸入資訊的系列。

  • 生命系列

  畫中不管動植物皆各自有其形體與靈魂,但我想對我來說看到生命的靈是遠遠比看到生命的型而更為重要。除了紀錄,另一方面也飽涵我對城市中與人類共用生存空間的動植物的觀察,那些對某些人來說有害的生物,也是拚盡全力在延續自己的生命,對我來說也是極其珍貴的生命的美。

  不論已知的未知的,希望自己在生命旅程中始終保有看見靈魂的光芒與同理靈魂的黯淡的勇氣。

  • 伯樂

  伯樂是天上一個星宿的名稱,專管天馬,韓愈《雜說》:「世有伯樂,然後有千里馬,千里馬常有,伯樂不常有。」

  身邊的物品,或許不刻意,但我想我看到了它的獨特,以此紀錄。

  我渴望能有伯樂能看到我創作中所想傳達的美,不是虛無的視覺而是真誠與尊重。

期許自己的創作能不隨波逐流,不譁眾取寵。

做伯樂這個系列的時候,本來很直白的認為這是我對創作的一種渴望,

結果做著做著卻發現,原來這裡面飽含的不只是表面上的看見,更多的是一種無論是什麼樣子都會被接納的期待。
