葉仁焜|YEH Jen-Kun

葉仁焜|YEH Jen-Kun

1984年出生於台灣桃園,現於台北生活和工作。2008年畢業於中國文化大學美術系,2011年於國立台北藝術大學美術創作碩士班水墨組畢業。參與過多個於台北的頂尖藝術機構舉行的展覽。亦參與過多個國際藝術博覽會包括「台北國際藝術博覽會」、「ART15倫敦藝術博覽會」、「台灣美術雙年展」等。作品已被多個國際知名機構收藏,其中包括國立臺灣美術館、龍顏基金會及雪梨的白兔美術館。
 
作品融合了傳統水墨和膠彩畫的技法特質來描繪城市的空景,探索個人與城市的關係,挖掘自身與生活空間的情感記憶,闡述大都會給予的疏離和寂寥感。2008年起,開始描繪日常生活隨處可見的建築物,刻意用廢墟和水泥的質感呈現,突顯空無一人的場景,似乎容納了所有城市人的孤獨。站在葉仁焜的視角,觀者看到的大都市是一個「非家」城市和「失落空間」,即無人聞問或無規劃的棄置空間及一種無人的城市風景,孤寂疏離感強烈,卻喚起陌生又熟悉的感覺。藉由畫中事物的構圖及空間錯置的超現實狀態塑造詩意,散發出夢境般的迷離氣氛。

Yeh Jen-Kun was born in 1984 in Taoyuan, Taiwan. He currently lives and works in Taipei. Yeh completed his B.A. in fine arts at the Chinese Culture University of Taiwan in 2008 and M.F.A. at Taipei National University of the Arts in 2011. Yeh has held solo exhibitions in major art institutions in Taipei and has participated in international art fairs and exhibitions including Art Taipei, ART15 in London and the Taiwan Biennial. His works have been collected by institutions including the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Long Yen Foundation and the White Rabbit Gallery in Sydney.
 
Yeh Jen-Kun delves into the relationship between humanity and the urban city, a man-made world. People often associate a metropolis with tall buildings, mass transit and busy sidewalks but Yeh depicts the city as an uncanny lost space. The ‘uncanny’ is a Freudian concept – a psychological experience that locates the strangeness of the familiar, confronting the subject with the unconscious, repressed desire. Since 2008, Yeh began to create a series of landscape paintings that evoke memories of a city based on what lives in his mind through reconstructing and assembling. In the process, Yeh painstakingly excavates pieces of memories that connect self and space. The ruin-like cement structures in Yeh’s works respond to the desolate spaces that have been neglected in real life. Yeh’s paintings exude a subtle surrealistic and dream-like ambiance. Yeh does not deliberately refer to any time or space, yet his works retain a sense of familiarity to viewers.
