2018歲末,大河美術將推出以狗為創作主題著稱的藝術家汪承恩個展「犬儒箴言」,在農曆狗年步入尾聲之際,為今年的畫廊展覽劃下句點。現實生活中,汪承恩是個專業養狗人士,對於狗的特點觀察細微,在看似單純以狗為創作的主題,實際上是他的自我投射,更反應種種社會型態及個人在社會中的自我價值。

本展延續了汪承恩多年來精心創作的狗道理系列,重新以犬儒主義的視角切入,探討如何以得理適宜的生存之道,超越面對荒謬世態時的虛無感與不信任感,達到精神的昇華,並將其凝聚在一幅幅仿若箴言的狗作品中。其創作並非是再現真實的狗形象,而是試圖構成視覺的真實,在意圖創造真實形象的畫面之中,尋找類似如同生命避難所般自我保護的可能,這才是運用狗來進行創作最有利的動機。因為人與狗所連結的情感,是如此的唯一與珍貴,根本沒有任何的他物可以替代。汪承恩試著藉由畫面來呈現人與狗之間的高貴情感,並給予真摯的表達。而能否於畫面之中,無法讀取與分辨的空白處,得到陽光,才是他所欲求的解答。

At the end of 2018, River Art will launch the solo exhibition The Cynic Motto by artist Wang Chen-En, who is famous for his dog-themed creations, drawing this year's gallery exhibitions to a close at the end of the Year of the Dog. In real life, Wang is a professional dog breeder who observes the characteristics of dogs. The seemingly simple dog theme actually serves as his self-projection, reflecting various social patterns and individual self-worth in society.

This exhibition continues The Principle of Dogs Series that Wang has carefully created over the years. From the perspective of cynicism, this series explores how to apply the ways of life and transcend the feelings of ignorance and distrust in the face of absurdity to reach spiritual sublimation, and condense that essence into doglike works. These works do not reproduce real dog images. Instead, they attempt to constitute the reality of visions. With the intention of creating real visualizations, the pictures seek the possibility of self-protection as seen in refugees. This serves as the most capable motivation for using dogs as the theme of these works. Because the emotions that connect people and dogs together are so unique and precious, no other items or animals can replace that. With sincerity, Wang tries to embody the noble feelings between man and dog through his work. Can one seize the sunshine among the illegible and indistinguishable blank spaces on the canvases? This is the question that Wang seeks to answer.
