It has been 10 years since the passing of Chen Ting-shih, who is famous in the art world for his abstract prints and iron sculptures. The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts has organized a commemorative exhibit of his works titled, “Immersed in Poetic Grace: the 10th Anniversary Memorial Exhibition of Chen Ting-Shih.” The diverse and grand display of works included in the exhibit spans poetry, calligraphy, printing, painting, and sculpting.

Chen lived a life without sound after losing his hearing as a child, which was when he became deaf. He devoted his entire life to creating art, and toward the end of his life he was mostly involved in iron sculpting, using his aged wrinkled hands to pour new life into old scrap iron. The organizer of the exhibit, Liu Kao-hsing, says that aside from representing the versatile artistic life and uniqueness of the artist, the exhibit also focuses on allowing his poetry to serve as a medium for blending the sense of poetry and art found in his works. Visitors will feel as if they are appreciating a symphony of both poetry and art. The exhibit will be on display until July 1.

以抽象版畫及鐵雕聞名藝壇的藝術家陳庭詩,今年逝世十周年,國立台灣美術館策劃「滿庭詩意—陳庭詩逝世十周年紀念展」,將陳庭詩橫跨詩文、書法、版畫、繪畫及雕塑作品,作多元面向的盛大展出。

陳庭詩幼年失聰造成生命的無聲狀態,卻窮其一生致力於藝術創作,更於晚年埋首於焊鐵雕塑,以佈滿歲月紋路的雙手重造廢鐵生命。策展人劉高興表示,此次展覽除呈現陳庭詩全才的藝術生命與特質,並特別以詩為軸,讓陳庭詩作品的詩性與藝術交融,讓看展者猶如觀賞一首「詩」、「藝」交織的生命交響曲。展期至七月一日止。
