我們,即人類,生存的所有秩序都來自其背後的一則虛構故事。為了維持依照虛構所建設出來的秩序,我們投入大量智慧心力,創造了神話、宗教、法律、民主、資本主義。這些秩序刻劃的人物情節,一方面深深與我們結合,一方面也重新形塑了我們,才終讓我們覺得我們自己就是存在。這整個我與我們,千萬年來存在於千千萬萬人的共同想像裡。

在墨與彩的描繪變化中,李濤能夠跳脫當代水墨,或稱新水墨那卻已制式化的唯美情愫,以當代藝術家的態度,真正面對且抒發著我們,即人類,的當下與未來。

 

aura gallery taipei is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of Li Tao: “Li Tao – Sapiens". Opening reception will be at 3pm, May 16. We sincerely invite you to join with us.

We, as Homo sapiens, all live under rules constructed by fictional believings. To maintain the rules, we input wisdom and efforts, creating myths, religions, laws, democracy, and capitalism. Not only do all the outcomes live with us, at the same time they remold us, and eventually make us believe that we are the being itself. Over millions of years, the entire concept of “we” and “I” exists in millions of people’s mind.

While the aesthetics of the contemporary ink painting, or so-called new ink painting, has been narrowed to a specific criterion within the past few years, Li Tao leap out of the standard and create his own language of art with the variation of use of ink and color. As a contemporary artist, Li Tao truly face and express the present and the future of us, Homo sapiens.
