• Tom Smith畢業於紐約視覺藝術學校,深感現代數位化的產物逐漸抹滅藝術創作的光環,其作品順 著數位時代中的藝術脈絡作出充滿想像的詮釋與構圖。Smith的作品看似經由機械和數位化的方式 做處理,實際上皆是親手繪製的作品。作品遠看時像是繡帷上的蔓延圖形,近看則會發現在圖案上 有著相對顏色的線條躍然而出。在這次展覽中每件作品均是由兩張壓克力顏料繪成品組合而成,當 兩者結合時,會產生如兩個視頻快速切換間被定格的視錯覺,在看似動態的畫面中,立體的視覺效 果彷彿現出不定形的臉、誇張的眼睛、睫毛與漂浮的地磚。如同百葉窗葉面的擺動可以控制光的進 出與室內的明暗,Smith的創作像是在整理其內心的想法和外界觀者的想像,而這些均反映在作品 上,使之不受定義所侷限,也因此觀者可以自由地產生連結。對Smith而言,這是一個永不停止的 實驗過程,同時也是讓我們反思自身認知、意識與潛意識的課題。
