ABOUT 

Kueh Chai Phiaw is undisputedly a dedicated classical Chinese ink artist equipped with one of the most rigid Chinese ink art foundation in the local art scene.

In 1962, Kueh studied at the Department of Fine Arts of Taiwan Normal University, where he was directly taught by important art masters including Huang Junbi, Lin Yushan, Pu Xinyu, Liao Jichun and Ma Baishui. As such, his artworks inherited the masters’ style and demeanour underpinned by profound traditional drawing fundamentals and compositions.

After thousands of years of refinement, the cornerstone of Chinese ink painting ultimately focuses on the mental state and ability to integrate painting techniques with the soul. Under this concept, the ethereal and the serene; the nostalgic and the humble; the natural yet solemn, are all inseparable factors in a painting.

Looking at Kueh’s artistic pieces, you can certainly distinguish these great symbols filled to the brim. His monumental expression and cultured composure are certainly unparalleled!

郭才标不只是一位不折不扣的传统水墨画家,亦是本土传统水墨画基础深厚中的佼佼者。

他在1962年负笈台湾,在台湾师范大学修学纯美艺术系。当时就有国宝级的台湾艺术大师,黄君璧、林玉山、溥心畬、廖继春及马白水等亲自授课。于是在他的作品中,传承了这些大家的艺术思想与风范,拥有着深沉的传统绘画基础与格式。

中国水墨艺术基石经历了几千年的揉炼,绘画艺术最终讲究的还是技术与精神相容一体的功力、修养与意境,即是脱离不了空灵流畅、怀古姿拙,自然大气的元素。

而郭才标的艺术创作,皆盈溢充沛着这些艺术的大符号。大气的表现与儒儒君子的风姿,一时无人可比!
