Artwork Appreciation
In her work, “Today's Lunch - Seaweed,” Artist LIN Tzu-Chuan turns all the ingredients accompanying seaweed rice into simplistic geometric forms, using the rich colors coordinated with block shapes to restore the purest forms of the ingredients readily available in life. Using the repeated coating of acrylic color, LIN Tzu-Chuan brushes the different blocks with different thickness. After layers of coating, a thick and multi-layer texture appears to present 3D effect on the smooth canvas through the changes in the height of texture. The artist uses bright olive drab as the base tone while presenting the vegetables and ingredients in red, yellow and orange. Finally the work is sprinkled with block colors to symbolize seaweed sheet, highlighting the theme of the work. The artist heats up the details in life through geometrical rationality and passionate colors so that we can image the rice grains left on the mouth while sealing the happy moments of meal time.
