Artwork Appreciation
CHEN Shiau-Peng excels at taking life’s sensory experience as a starting point to construct geometric abstract pieces with rich and varied visual effects by laying out flat geometric color swatches incised by white lines. In City Frame III–My RMIT, the material for the work is the campus map of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and is made up of eight individual separate paintings. Starting out in the upper right-hand corner with a geometric shape representing a schematic of the campus, the artist has moved and turned the buildings he regularly used to visit and that have some special meaning for him into a painting made up of individual geometric squares based on their original building construction floor plans, an abstract work of art constructed with simple and restrained color and form. This work is reflection and summation of Chen’s life as a student abroad in which he also attempts to explore the profound meaning of “abstract art.”
