CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES

The foremost importance of contemporary art is concept. Among the concepts that are being experimented by various contemporary artists, some probably will become more and more prominent in the course of history, whilst some will likely be forgotten as guinea pigs. The artists having been remembered seem to be avant-garde, even not being accepted by the general public at the time. But it is exactly their bold and advanced concepts that make their works more and more valuable along with the time passing by.

For the present creation, Shoran has been through in-depth thinking, and at the same time she has come cross some changes. Her concepts are seen bold or advanced. She acknowledges that improvement of her works remains needed, and she has a long way ahead. Ten years of learning and experience on the way of pursuing arts has made Shoran become more modest and prudent. She does not expect her artworks would be accepted by the general public. Now she is concentrating on her own creativity, on accumulating experience, cultivating and improving her concepts and skills.

Shoran has the advantage of her learning and understanding of Chinese culture, and in the meantime, she receives the influence of Western arts. The works she creates while being in London lie in a high standard level, as they are the outcomes based on the world excellence of arts, and the combinations of the creativity out of Chinese and Western cultural thinking. Of Shoran’s works, Chinese and western art critics hold their own different interpretations, but enormous compliments are paid on the material, form, content and concept that are being applied. Chinese art critics commented, “While containing the Eastern and Western concepts, it is such a broad viewpoint and tender empowerment to stand from the point of female suicide for further experiments and studies”. And western critics expressed, “This form of artworks is marvellous. No one could ever foresee what kind of greater dimension and in-dept thinking this theme is going to lead Shoran to in the future. ”

Indeed, where will Shoran’s concept of theme in life, living, humanity, and pain bring her to in the course of her art creation in the future? When she becomes more and more mature in her pursuit of art, what kind of vast space will her thoughts and exploration of the theme lead her to? Let us be patient and look forward to it.

觀念與結果

當代藝術最重要的就是觀念,這種在當代被各個藝術家所實踐

的觀念,有些也許在歷史的長河中會越發閃亮耀眼,而有些也許會成為了那些被人淡忘的實驗品。那些被人們記住的藝術家,在當時看來,是前衛的,甚至是不被大眾所接受的。但是正是他們大膽超前的觀念,使得他們的作品隨著時間的推移而越發珍貴。

 對於現在創作,姜嘯然是經過深思熟慮,也是幾經變化。她的觀念可以是大膽,或是超前。她也深知,自己的作品還需要不斷的完善,今後的道路還很長。在藝術道路上,十幾年的學習與歷練,讓嘯然變得更加謙虛謹慎。她並沒有想著自己的作品會被大眾所接受,現在就是專心創作,積累,磨練,完善。

 嘯然的優勢在於,她對中國文化的研習與理解,同時她在西方也接受了西方藝術的熏陶與衝擊,她來倫敦之後的作品,是站在一個很高的平台上,接觸到了全世界優秀藝術的基礎上,結合了中西文化思想的背景之下創作出來的。對於她的作品,中西方藝術評論家雖有著自己不同的解讀,但是對於其材質、形式、容以及觀念,都是大加讚許。中國藝術評論家認為以女性自殺為原點蔓延衍伸,視野之開闊,心襟之慈憫,囊括了中西方的理念。而西方藝評人認為這些作品的形式非常好,而在今後,誰知道這個主題將會引領嘯然到何種的更大的空間,何等的深入的想法。

 確實,姜嘯然的這個關於人生、人性、生命、傷痕的觀念主題,將會在今後的藝術創作中將她引向何等空間?在她越來越成熟的藝術道路上,她對於這些主題的思考與探索,將會將她引向何等廣闊之天地?我們拭目以待。
