Artwork Appreciation
CHEN Yi-Chia is skilled in eastern gouache and many of his works are inspired from his personal everyday experiences. Fragments and artifacts from his memories such as metal artifacts from Taichung factories are often used as symbols of nostalgia and homesickness. Soft, retrograde tones are often selected to provide sincere and rich emotions. Auld Lang Syne illustrates a scene in front of the family home, with the red umbrella on the steps symbolizing the artist’s hope to locate certain unique identifiers in an otherwise routine and mundane life, introducing new sources of energy within a packed schedule. To CHEN Yi-Chia, the process of creating this artwork allows him to identify a place where he could store time, memory, and existence to manifest the warm and emotional patchwork that make up his personal history.
