如虎添翼 A Tiger with Wings

The tiger is a majestic beast. To create the print for the year of the tiger, it’s important to demonstrate such a character as well as the image of good luck at the same time. Beginning with the concept of “wings” (翼) – its Chinese character is composed of the symbols that represent “feather” (羽), “farm” (田), and “mutuality” (共) in Chinese – the artist used grid paper to geometrically represent the “farm,” and wings to represent the “feather.” Meanwhile, he highlighted the grace of tigers with the silhouette of a tiger king flying across the sky in the bubbles to represent the “mutual” dreams shared by the beast and most of us.

金樽21 Jinzun 21

Jinzun, a gulf in Taitung, is named so because the shape of the gulf is similar to an ancient golden cup (known as Jinzun in Chinese). Chiang has lived there for a dozen of years, and the dialogue he has had with nature and life there develops into a new visual language that he uses in his works. In Chiang’s original work, an oil painting, he placed the square blue paper at the centre and covered it with green, red, and pink circles. The colours spread out and layer on top of each other, creating a vibrant scene. The print well captures the delicate use of colours and three-dimensional texture that are found in Chiang’s original work.
