地景藝術創作者安迪‧戈茲沃西(Andy Goldsworthy, 1956 -)作品的黑色圓形有著虛體、有著無法意測的深度,詮釋出虛無存在性。




平板玻璃(sheet glass)切割、堆疊成形,放入窯爐(kiln)約800°C融合玻璃(fusing glass),再反覆切割、對疊、窯燒以時間、溫度、厚度(layer)控制玻璃流動狀態,完成滿意的狀態,再加工表面的肌理,噴砂(sandblasting)表面,並放回到窯爐以約600°C火拋光(fire polishing)與烤彎(slumping)成形。

Artist Statement:

The artworks by the landscape artist Andy Goldsworthy (1956- ) often feature a black hole of an immeasurable depth as an embodiment of voidness.

It is an experience CHAO Nan-Kai intends to explore via artmaking, which departs from the mountain streams not to give a realistic depiction but how the landscape of mountainous scenery becomes an artistic inspiration. The contours from glass-cutting reflects the risky transition between the realistic and abstract essence of nature as found in streams, rocks, and whirlpools as well as his intuitive confrontation with fear and helplessness. Every step throughout the artmaking process continuously simplify the complications to achieve the lowest visual disturbance and to manifest the most absolute minimalist painterly quality.

With an influence from ink-wash painting, the artwork integrates the aesthetics from both the East and West as it also maintains painterly symbols. By using plate glass as canvas, techniques such as fusion, cutting, sandblasting and polishing are added with an opaque matte finish – rather than the cold, bright and smooth surface – to create a sense of warmth, while the minimalist shapes in black and white, at the two ends of the spectrum, remind us of a paper-and-ink quality to convey a similar artistic philosophy despite of the use of different materials. The artmaking process is as much an enactment of memory as self-criticism, as it transforms the space into a two-dimensional image for the spontaneous natural scenery to be engraved on it.

How it is made:

The sheet glass is first cut and laminated as a way of shaping it, before the shaped material is put into the kiln at a high temperature of 800°C for further fusion, and the process of glass-cutting, lamination and kiln burning repeats, with its fluidity carefully managed via a control of time, temperature and layering, until it meets expectation. The final steps include textured surface and sandblasting finish, and the work is completed with fire polishing and slumping in the kiln again at a temperature of 600°C.
