宇宙中無所不在的能量
The Omnipresent Energy of the Universe

一直以來,我皆以深沈的平和、誠實的內在,靜心觀望一切的將來與發展。而宇宙間渾然大化、無形卻又無所不在的能量,謂之「炁」。在我繪畫中的「炁」具有活潑多變的面貌。「炁」代表宇宙中無所不在的能量,自然造化之功則是「炁」之生機與泉源之所在。並以個人對「二元性」的理解、詮釋與掌握,演繹虛與實、動與靜、陰與陽、強與弱、有限與無限等對照性的概念創作。 
All the way through, I have been using contemplative mild and integrity, quietly watching the future and development of everything. The invisible yet omnipresent energy completely integrated in the universe which is called "Chi". The "Chi" in my paintings has a lively and varied appearance. "Chi" represents the omnipresent energy of the universe. The creative power of the nature is the vitality and source of the "Chi". With my understanding, interpretation and mastery of "duality", I interpreted contrastive concept creations from virtual and real, dynamic and static, Yin and Yang, strong and weak, limited and unlimited.

築基於以感性之眼對自然的深刻觀察,回返宇宙本源,引「炁」之流動,對萬事萬物的存有樣態進行一種形而上的現象學思考。乃至於從現象觀本質、從本質看世界,這原本就是互為表裡、相互連動的概念。我巨視自然的運行、微觀現象的變化,感受到「炁」在至大無邊的時空象限中的強烈波動;看到混沌初開的自然之力。更體悟浩瀚宇宙、星雲空間的無限張力而反映著所生活之體驗,自然現象及宇宙萬物皆是我在創作時隨時取之的靈感來源。 
Based on the in-depth observation of nature with sensible eyes, back to the origin of the universe, causing the flow of "Chi", and carrying out a metaphysical phenomenological thinking on the existence of everything and even approaches the essence of things by the way of observing the phenomena of the external world, observing the external world from the inner dimension, this is originally a concept of mutual and internal linkage. I look at the natural movements and changes in microscopic phenomena from a macro perspective, feeling the strong fluctuations of "Chi" in the boundless horizon of time and space; seeing the natural power of chaos. I am more aware of the infinite tension of the vast universe and nebular space which reflect the experience of life. Natural phenomena and everything in the universe are the inspiration sources at any time of my creation.

1990年,人生無常的變化讓我驟然失去女兒Samantha,在經過一段時間的自我心緒沈澱之後,我 悟出了當生命在此生結束,便走入「無限」的大境之中,生命能量循環往復,永不消失。於是透過繪畫敘說我的情感,經由繪畫及自我意識的不斷錘煉,追求一種超越生死侷限、天人合一的廣闊境界。度大限系列即是此時期的繪畫主題,是對生命真諦的體悟及永恆性的探討,呈現我經由性靈默想尋求超越與昇華的心境變化。以在精神上極富東方生命哲學的「輪迴」內涵及宗教性的救贖,在刻骨傷懷但永不絕望的生命思考中,參破生死界線,並理解一切的不幸、死亡,終將在毁滅後重生。當經歷且參透了之後,終於明瞭,永恆的生命,並不僅僅只有此生、此世,而是在於生死「大限」度過後的化外光明彼岸。 
In 1990, the impermanence of life caused me to suddenly lose my daughter Samantha. After a period of organizing my thoughts into calmness, I realized that when life is over at this cycle, it will enter the "infinite" territory, the cycle of life energy will never disappear. Therefore, I described my emotions through the paintings, through the continuous tempering of painting and self-consciousness pursuing a broad realm that transcends the limits of life and death and the unity of nature and human. "Passage Through the Great Threshold" is the theme of painting in this period. It is a discussion of the real understanding and eternity of life. It shows the mindset change that I was seeking to transcend and sublimate through the spiritual and meditation. With the "Samsara" connotation and religious salvation in the spirit of the oriental life philosophy, in the bone-deep wound but never despair of life thinking, I broke the boundaries of life and death, and understanding all the misfortunes and deaths that will eventually be born again after the destruction. Once I have been through such heart-wrenching experience and understand the nature of it, it finally dawns on me that life is eternal and does not end with death. Rather, the seed of eternal life continues to grow on the brighter end of the “Great Threshold”.

畫作「在永久花園的莎芒妲」中那特殊的一抹顏色,代表的是莎芒妲無論在何時、何處,對我來說,她永遠是最特殊且如此的與眾不同。所以;我幫她畫許多美麗的花園,讓她能在永久的花園裡徜徉。藝術家的心靈原就比一般人感受深刻,在那麼鮮豔的色彩之下,有著我濃濃深深的思念,或許懷著情懷進行創作,才有令人動容的絕對美麗吧。 
The specific touch of color in the paintings of "Samantha nel giardino eterno" represents Samantha is always the most special and outstanding to me, no matter whenever or wherever she is. So; I drew so many beautiful gardens for her in order she could strolling in the eternal garden. The artist's mind is far more profound than the normal person. I have very deep memories under such bright colors, perhaps the heartfelt astonishing beauty came from my creation with deep feelings.

1996年我從義大利到南藝大來任教、退休,又已經過14年。如今再回來接受榮譽博士的頒予並在我任教時的視覺所舉辦個展,所代表的意涵猶如我曾於繪畫中提及的:『兩處心思無論多遠、多深的距離或異離,只要出現勾通或共識,彼此就已產生有意義的連結。』 
In 1996, I went to teach at Tainan National University of The Arts from Italy then retired in 2005. After 14 years I have been awarded Honorary Doctorate Degree and hold a solo exhibition at College of Visual Arts - where I had been teaching for many years. The implication it represents as I mentioned in my painting: "No matter how far or how deep the distance is, there are meaningful connections between each other as long as there is communication or consensus."

2020年,我85歲了,一系列的展覽,我親提『新能量』為主展題,在我的基金會之藝術中心同時發起『New Punto藝術運動』。藉由當初發起此藝術運動之初衷,結合各類的藝術工作者,喚醒有良知者的本性,把日益侵蝕人心的貪婪、粗暴和不良心機以藝術之能量消弭殆盡,讓世界能恢復我們嚮往之平和安樂的樣貌。 
I will be 85 years old in 2020. In a series of exhibitions, I personally introduced the "New Energy" as the main exhibition topic. At the same time, I launched the "New Punto Art Movement" at the Art Center of my Foundation. By initiating the original intention of this art movement, combining various types of artists, awakening the conscience of human nature, to let the increasing eroding greed, rude and bad heart that is increasingly eroding the people will be eliminated by the energy of art, allowing the world to restore our yearning appearance of peace and happiness.
