關於時光林 About Time Lin

時光林出生於1960年,他從小就展露了美術的才華。在他唸小學和初中時,每年的美術比賽他都得到第一名。儘管他在常規課堂上學習,但他的畫作是在他第一次參加台灣省展獲得優選佳績。他的高中老師水彩畫大師蕭如松先生,看到16K畫作,稱讚他是“四十年來第一位的天才。”他曾經考取國立台灣藝術大學。但當時,台灣社會仍然認為畫家的職業生涯沒有希望,所以他選擇放棄機會並服兵役。離開軍隊後,他的職業生涯始於廣告業。然後,他的藝術才華和不懈的努力得到了提升,從設計師,藝術總監,製片人到創作總監,在他的整個職業生涯中。2010年,當他50歲時,他再次拿起畫筆,成為一名自學的藝術家。

直到今天,他還在繼續磨練自己的畫藝。自2013年以來,他的油畫入選東京國立新美術館的藝術未來國際展,西英國皇家學院的年展,以及巴黎的沙龍展。他的陶瓷作品入選中國紫金藝術陶瓷獎,並成為Societe du Salon d'Automne的正式成員。他還獲得了國立台灣美術館的認可。此外,他的“巫山雲雨”裝置作品在2017年佛羅倫薩雙年展上展出,並獲得了視頻的第五名,並獲得了Lorenzo il Magnico國際大獎。他的創意舞蹈計畫入選了松山文創園區的書審。2018年,他的作品入選法國藝術家沙龍和法國獨立藝術家沙龍,並在巴黎的Le Grand Palais大皇宮展出。2019年,他榮獲美國藝術獎第一、三、四名、佛羅倫斯雙年展裝置藝術第三名、義大利波提切利藝術獎,入選當代藝術策展人雜誌「未來100位藝術家」,羅浮宮卡魯塞爾廳藝購博覽會個展等。截至12月,他已舉辦了10次個展,並參加了29次聯展。

他將自己取名為“時光林”,因為他認為“時間就是藝術”。他以時間為核心,以新美好為創作理念,善用不同的方式和工具,不斷自我挑戰。藉由參加國內外大型競賽,突破藝術創造上的框架與限制;期許能持續攀峰,創造影響人心的新、美、好的作品!
