Awarelism
Awarelism

一個睡著,一個醒著。「覺」與「覺」同個字兩種活著的形態。
人是活在覺知的覺?還是睡覺的覺?
活著夠清醒,會知道要什麼、什麼不要。
會問為什麼的,離答案也不遠了。
會說別想那麼多的,也依然會過得很好。
憤怒的,早有很多可以發洩的對象。
活著不耐煩,死了又覺得可惜的,歡迎……。


The Chinese word of Awarelism -“覺” has two meanings: “Asleep”and “Awake”
So which one matches the concept of Awarelism?
If you are the one living awake, you know what you want or not and start asking why.
You are already close to the true meaning of Awarelism;
For those who don’t want to think too much, it is fine;
For those who want to express emotion, there are many other alternatives;
For those who are fed up with the boring life but not going to die soon;
read this album and begin to awake your awareness!
You don’t need to believe in what I say about that,
it is not something that you have upon request or maybe you don’t even want it at all.

Title

Awarelism Website

For Awarelism, word is the linguistic artifice used for facilitating communication and documentary purposes. My words are plain and hope everyone can understand the concept. However, too many words may limit your imagination and your thinking.

This is the era where government or giant enterprises controlled the media for taunting, quarrels, confusion, incitation, deceit, constraint, brainwashing, etc.

Listeners do not understand and refuse listening. Readers do not understand and refuse reading. It does not make anything clear. This is how the power of wording scared me.

Human thinking and consciousness is constrained by words.

Throughout the evolvement of civilisation, I lost my faith to one-way media. Therefore, this album is not one-way. It is to relate with readers and initiate the new kernel for new thinking.

This is also the reason each piece of work only given a number but not name. If you want to explore or discuss about the origin of each one of them, you can visit their designated webpages.

The release of Awarelism is the beginning of its collective creation. Everyone is very welcome to visit the official website.

語言文字對《覺醒印象》來說,只是用來促進溝通與留下紀錄的工具載體,寫的直白,是希望任何人看了都能懂,但太多的文字,也只會是箝制想像空間與思維意識的籠子。

在所有傳媒載具都被商政操控的時代裏,文字早已變成挑釁,爭吵,蠱惑,搧動,詭詐,束縛,洗腦,約制的工具。聽的人沒聽懂,不願聽懂。看的人沒看進,不願看出究竟。道理越辯越不清,真理越辯越不明。語言文字的力量,讓人感到恐怖的地方就在這裡。

人類大部份的意識與意志都被囚在文字語言裏,從文明歷史的演進看回來,我對單向的載具已沒信心。

所以,這本畫冊如果只是單向的傳遞訊息,就失去了這本畫冊想產生共鳴,激發出新思維的核心意義。為了避免文字帶來可能的約制,畫作盡量只取編號不命名。但,您如果想更了解每幅畫作的源起,或想討論它的意義。請在覺醒印象專屬網站上,與任何一個人去激盪究竟。

覺醒印象的出版,只是個人創作階段的結束。實質上,是覺醒印象透過書籍、網路、集體互動創作的開始。不論喜歡或質疑,好奇或看戲,這個網站都歡迎。

《覺醒印象概念畫集》內容簡介:

兩百年前我們用畫筆繪出世界,兩百年後相機隨處可見
這本書,將跨越二維與三維的交界,走向下一個兩百年。

這不只是一本畫集,而是你我的殘酷社會。
完結「小確幸」式的自我欺騙,歡迎光臨現實世界!

不形塑一個美好的桃花源要你認同,只是要明白告訴你世界的偽裝與幻覺,
唯有認清現實的瘡痍、坑洞,我們才能用清明的眼繼續前行!

你是否認為,藝術是一種抽象難解的謎題,不懂、也不知從何懂起?
你是否覺得,有了相機捕捉一切風景,那麼畫作的意義將沒入衰亡?
當你走過藝術的畫廊,穿越數百幅畫,你卻只能看著它們心想:「到底美在哪?」

你發現了嗎?其實你和大多數人都一樣:害怕被欺騙,所以武裝自己;害怕不方便,所以默許環境被破壞;我們不吭聲,以為這樣災難不會降臨;視而不見,醒著卻像睡了,蒙上眼睛假裝一切不曾發生。

這本書要顛覆你以往觀賞的記憶,解開畫作「只能意會、不能言傳」的秘密!除了完美構圖、除了斑斕色彩、除了第一眼的強烈感受之外,《覺醒印象》裡每一幅畫作的靈魂意念,將透過文字結合圖像傳遞給正在翻閱的你,一筆一畫、一字一句都將撼動你心!

作者堅持以數位畫筆創造出屬於當代的畫作,用超現實與寫實意象的風格傾訴,衝撞社會既定框架、火力全開──歷時三年,挑戰環境、教育、城市、人類……等社會主題,展開一場與讀者的深度對話。

世界上最難叫醒的人,是假裝在睡覺的人,
而你,選擇繼續睡「覺」?或是睜開眼睛「覺」醒?

《覺醒印象概念畫集》的創作概念

綠叢花彩池塘水波,映照飛鳥藍天雲朵。
對我來說,大自然的真實已經美不勝收了,何須寫它、畫它、拍它、複製它?再怎麼創作也只是徒具人造虛擬的樣態。美麗的風景就在窗外,生命的奧秘在人造幻境裏是不存在的。

寫實西畫技法與傳統媒材應用的瓶頸,在上世紀就沒能再突破了。 畫不出前人的美,也創作不出當今的新;畫不過攝影相機的紀錄性,更何況是超越永恆的自然美景。嘗試了那麼多年的不同媒材之後,不想再限於傳統的約制中去突破。對我來說外在世界的美,已屬於視覺科技的了。所以,丟棄了油畫、彩筆、麻布、畫紙、水彩、泥塑、雕刻、鉛筆等所有傳統畫具,完全地使用數位工具繼續前進。

從傳統轉為數位,不只是因為數位帶來的強大,而是因為數位媒材多樣且擁有無限的可能,才更能保持概念意識的延續與完整性。現在時空的人理所當然使用現在的數位工具創作。在當代的媒材容器上,呈現當代的作品,是給未來的人們對我們這一代留下深刻印象的最好方式。
至於那種只有唯一的利益收藏價值性,早已不在我的創作核心裡。

這世界早已有很多帶來美好感受的藝術創作,這樣很好;但人們生命中的苦痛,依舊也沒減少過,甚至更多,這樣還是很糟。我不是負向的人,但是正受到周圍負向思維情緒的人們打擾著,我的日子也是難過。

終歸人有情有愛外,還有的是劣根性。慣性地把一切關起來佔有,也包括他自己。自以為追求的是美好,但往往那個美好,是附帶著更多、更多想都想不到的很糟。這些盲目的慾望追求,也連帶著給自己與別人、其他物種與地球環境更多的不幸。

熱血的對話聊得再多,還是沒能改變集體意識的無奈與頹喪。所以,暫時擱下天真的創作,選擇往那一直隱藏在所謂的美好裡面——更深的那個、會很糟的那個,去究竟、去紀錄。轉向靈魂的內在宇宙,去探索、去發覺,我們早已具足卻從未覺知到的擁有。

用感受去紀錄攝影機達不到、拍不著的地方,用數位畫筆360度地去描繪、去雕塑、去刻畫出所觀察到的人間印象,希望能讓人們看出,我們確實是可以擺脫掉那些很糟的苦痛。

《覺醒印象》在視覺風格上,是以超現實與意象寫實為主,覺醒著深掘刨出人之何以痛苦莫名的根源。用數位的方式紀錄,用沉靜的筆,畫出人類在有意識與無意識間,所受約制的精神狀態。

所以,《覺醒印象》的創作目的究竟是什麼呢?
《覺醒印象》的創作目的,就是希望用極簡的影像去提醒、去刺激人們。警覺到自己早已因層層的剝削機制,而失去了獨立的自由意識與警覺能力。我們的無明苦痛,往往來自盲目追求的不知所以然。我們的生活,大部份是受制於食物鏈頂層的控制,甚至是你的夢想、你的慾望、你的追求都是頂層洗腦灌輸給你的。

只是個提醒,只是個明白。
任何的追求,都有屬於它的好與不好,大多的追求也只是不需要的需要。

只是個提醒,只是個明白。
生命與生活的品質,究竟受到了什麼原因的影響?過去、現在、未來是受到什麼原因左右?

只是個提醒,只是個明白。
在想不出怎麼脫離食物鏈的制約之前,至少清楚明白,自己是在哪個環節上。

不是反抗,不是輸贏或你死我活,而是清不清醒、明不明白地覺知生活。只要是醒著、只要是明白的,幸福就算不近,也不遠了。

Beyond Creating Awarelism

Green shrubs, colourful flowers and ripple in the pond, accompanying with flying birds and clouds.
What a beautiful landscape, but after writing it, drawing it, picturing it or copying it; it becomes an artefact. Beautiful landscape from your window conveys the mystery of lives which never exists in the artefacts.

Since last century, western realistic painting and traditional art supplies have been confined by their bottlenecks. Neither can I exceed the ancient masters’ arts nor can I innovate a new artistic conception; neither can I exceed the precision of photography nor can I exceed the eternity of nature. After I had tried familiar with all the painting techniques and art supplies, I believe we should get rid of the limit of traditional elements. The beauty of the world can be visualised by technology nowadays. So it is time to discard traditional art supplies such as pencils, papers, inks, paints, carving knife or anything of the sort and go straight with digital tools.

From traditional to digital, the advancements of technology makes the possibilities of preservation of integrity and continuity of a concept beyond a piece of artwork. Artists at present period should incorporate with emerging technology to creative process. By using emerging technology as a new medium to create masterpieces;  it is a brilliant way to tell future artists more about our  generation at present period. Creating artworks solely with collectible value is no longer the core of my creations.

It is so great that the world already has a lot of artworks which bring people happiness. But they have not reduced human’s suffering in life or even have deteriorated it. I am not negative, but being surrounded by negativities; it has a great impact on  me.

Other than love, people have deep-rooted depravity. Inertia locks up everything including itself. On the way of pursuing happiness, it attaches to some unexpected quests you have to manage. The endless blind pursuit of human has bought more misery to the whole world.

It is always frustrated and useless that no matter how enthusiatic talk I had given attempting to change the “follow-the-majority” phenomeno. Therefore, I postpone the simple creation and head deeply into the dark side of happiness, to discover and to record the findings with my life. Speaking to your interior, you may find out that we have already been contented with our possession.

I try to feel the places where camera is no longer applicable; using the digital stylus to portray, to carve, to shape in 360 degrees for my impression about life, hoping that everyone else understands we can actually free ourselves from the sufferings.

Awarelism, in visual, is mainly based on the surrealism and imaginary realism style. It allows one to gain a better understanding of where the unknown sadness in his coming. Use digital format to record and use my silent stylus to shape the constrained spiritual state, between conscious and unconscious conditions of human beings.

So what is the purpose of creating Awarelism?
It is the use of intuitive pictures to awake the awareness of people and alert them they are already in an exploitation system and lost freedom. Our unknown sadness comes from the blind pursuit of nothing. We live in the real world limited by those who on the top of the food chain; even your dream and your pursuit are brainwashed by them.

Just a reminder, just an understanding.
All your pursuit has both good side and bad side and most of the pursuits are  unnecessary desires.

Just a reminder, just an understanding.
Before breaking the shackles of this food chain, at least you should know where you rank in the food chain.

Just a reminder, just an understanding.

This is probably not to come as an inspiration of revolt, defeat or it’s-either-you-or-me type of enmity. But more about awareness and understanding, happiness is coming throughout the way.
