Candy Bird專訪-Part.A Interview with Candy Bird-Part.A
(The English version is below)
擅長利用塗鴉和空間中既有物件互動的 Candy Bird ，這一次與躺在紙張上的文字玩接龍。午後微風系列，保有著鮮明的輪廓，深刻的筆觸，卻多了細膩與溫柔；每一幅插畫運用分鏡的手法，一步步引誘讀者掉進了角色的世界裡，好像，每一個情節都很重要好想知道，下一幅的圖框裡會發生什麼事。稀鬆平常的寫實文字，道出淡淡的日常，濃濃的省思就好像那只剛燒好茶的茶壺，社會議題隨著壺嘴吐出的霧氣，若隱若現，很喜歡 Candy Bird 的為社會而藝術，淡然又自在的描繪血淋淋的社會。
Q:過往沒有使用文字創作的習慣，但詩、小說常給我靈感和啟發，羨慕那些很會使用文字的人。 至於寫作，記得最早應該是國中時寫過軍事、科幻小說，沒寫完也把草稿丟了，後來到最近幾年，出國旅行時才又開使寫些日記、散文。 這次想結合塗鴉與插畫兩種形式，嘗試些不同的表現手法，至於它應該怎麼被歸類則不清楚了，或許也不叫圖文，就是某種“繪畫”吧。
A:最近與香港的“油麻地兇案導賞團”合作一系列展覽，預計於11月17號、星期六晚上在行者藝文空間發表，香港場的則是在12月8號，詳細資訊我會再公佈於自己臉書和IG上。 另外也有一個與亞洲素人作家合作的計畫，從2017年開始預計會持續五年，還在進行中，有興趣的請到這裡參觀: https://aprilcccc.wixsite.com/theothers
A: What is the core concept of this creation?
Q: I have been interested in many aspects of urban society for a long time, especially those that are less concerned or ignored.
This year's (2018) solo exhibition at the Taipei Zun Cai Art Center is, to be simple, a family relationship focused on Taiwan's current economic situation.
A: You are really good at writing. In the past, there was always a habit of writing. Why did you public your own writings at this time?
Q: I have not used the habit of writing in the past, but poems and novels often give me inspiration and inspiration. I envy those who use text very much.
As for writing, I remember that when I was in the middle school, I wrote a military, science fiction novel.I thew away the draft after. In recent years, when I traveled abroad, I finally started to write some diaries and essays.
This time I want to combine different forms of expression with words and illustration. As for how it should be classified, it is not clear, perhaps not called graphic, or some kind of "painting".
Family appearance in modern society
Q: What is the metaphorical message of the excerpt from "breeze of the Afternoon"?
A: It is not interesting if I say it. It is left to the audience to interpret and understand.
Q: What is the story behind the illustration?
A: As you can see, the afternoon breeze is an article describing the relationship between father and son. I use it to overlap with a painting depicting “redemption” to express the family appearance of modern society as mentioned above.
Q: Do you want to try to make cartoons in the future?
A: I have worked with Rex(The white radiation), but both of us are so busy that the work does not meet the standards of completion. The future depends on fate, and I also like to try different things.
Recent exhibition plan
Q: A recent exhibition information introduction (exhibition plan)?
A: A series of exhibitions recently co-operated with Hong Kong's "Yau Ma Tei Murder Guide". It is expected to be published in the Walker's Art Space on November 17 and Saturday night. The Hong Kong field is on December 8. I will reveal the details on his Facebook and IG.
There is also a plan to work with Asian amateur writers. It is expected to last five years from 2017 and is still in progress. If you are interested, please visit here: https://aprilcccc.wixsite.com/theothers
