The Impregnable Rhino | 銅牆鐵壁

語音導覽 不銹鋼手工鍛造、鐵板 stainless steel, iron 210 x 22.5 x 108cm

  《銅牆鐵壁》在鐵板上採取水平方式的構圖,以金鋼犀牛的頭部為中軸左右對開,在象徵工業文明的鐵板材料之中結合不鏽鋼鏡面反射的材料特性,將對象壓縮,變更原有的透視原理來彰顯立體空間。浮雕般的形式令作品跳脫單純的二維平面,高浮雕的效果轉化視覺的寫實比例,在既表面,又立體的體積中,呈現多方位的立體雕塑,營造出視覺上不同密度的觀賞效果。《銅牆鐵壁》剛強俐落的線條與均衡穩定的結構,亦生動的再現了藝術家宏觀和堅毅的審美偏好。

The artist adapts an embossment effect and makes “The Impregnable Rhino” a vivid relief on the steel board. The head of the rhino has been symmetrically divided into half. Steel, which symbolizes industrial civilization and has stainlessness feature, has been used to give the sculpture a mirror surface a special ability to reflect its surrounding. It is more visually appealing and has become part of the natural environment. Embossing technique enables the artist to make art works that are no longer 2-dimensional. This multifaceted characteristic is superimposed on the grandiose rhino design and together builds a unique watching experience for viewers. “The Impregnable Rhino” has strong line quality and steady structure. It highly represents Li-Jen’s macro and determined aesthetic preference.
