“All of the people usually praise for longevity, wealth and fortune; they love health, tasty of food, resplendence of decorations, satisfaction with colors and pleasant to the ear.” It totally expresses Pahsi Lin’s life-esthetics which is by “Self.” Since 2007, there was an individual exhibition in British-Consulate in Kaohsiung. After that, Pahsi Lin overthrew traditional artists’ image. He kept holding paintbrushes, becoming addicted to dyestuff, and putting the beauty-concept into the living. He is really a slave of pretty. His every art exhibition is not only originate from the beauty-concept into the living but also a grand banquet. He let hues catch people’s eyes, musical instrument surround their ears, and make some red wine to enrich their sensation. In every opening, artists savored these creations.
Pahsi Lin is not the first person to make gold blend with art. He is famous for the way he describing. In his drawings, gold is no longer a symbol of property, witness and wonderland what human go for. It is just “self”, fame, and luxury. Although it seems pretentious and worldly, it is penetrative ability of the artist who keep pace with the times. He elaborates his reactions to beauty. If you relish Pahsi Lin’s series of golden creations deeply, you would discover that gold shows variousness. Majesty coexists with gentleness, but the imagery is flowing. Though it is often a feature, it still can play as a supporting role.
Pahsi Lin uses gold, mineral and ink to be the basic, and makes use of historical color more skillfully. He combines Western with internal brushwork, and gives traditional Chinese painting a whole new life. In conclusion, Pahsi Lin uses precious and historical porcelains to express what people go for!
Pa Hsi Lin, an artist whose life is full of artistic practice and embodiment, yet his art embraces the nature of life ; between reason and sensibility, Pa Hsi Lin continues to find a balance, but often finds that sensibility dominates over reason like a run wild river.Throughout his art career, Pa Hsi Lin dedicates to embody the spirit of "art of living", an idea which was enlightened by teacher Wang Feng Ge and with painting skills learned from teacher Chang Wen Rong, teacher Wang Rui Tsung, teacher Liu Bai Jun, Professor Huang Guang Nan and Professor Li Yi Hong. Not only from Pa Hsi Lin’s work can be seen the elaboration of the composition and the variation in the setting of coloration, but also the expression of Pa Hsi Lin’s feelings. Pa Hsi Lin’s heart strolls freely in the world of aesthetics, yet constantly enhances himself back to the innermost of his feelings and nature, and to enjoy his loneliness at spiritual level. On the other hand, Pa Hsi Lin has been actively engaged in the practice of aesthetics, and with Pa Hsi Lin’s friends they indulge themselves in the pursuit of art, music, delicate food, and good wine, of which apparently shows Pa Hsi Lin’s active involvement in the art of living.Qi Bai Shi dubbed himself “a rich man with 300 stone seals”, and Pa Hsi Lin is not only interested in these materials science but also has a keen interest in a more in-depth discussion and collection, such as the collection of inkstones, stone seals, and the possession of aged paper..... It is also worth mentioning that Pa Hsi Lin collects a great deal of good wine. Maybe Pa Hsi Lin’s motto below, which is quoted from W.B. Yeats’s poem, can best describe his philosophy towards life:Cast a Cold Eye On Life, On Death. Horseman, Pass by! -W.B.Yeats -
