To stimulate the weakness of our art market, YiCOLLECTA is going to launch Relay20, an online collection that collaborates with various artists at a reasonable price. A total of seven artists are included in the second round, who are artists Daniel Lee, Yang Zi Ran, Yuan Hau-Li, Gilles Lan, Liao I-Chin, and Hsiang-lin Chien.

Artist:

Daniel Lee 1945-
„All homelands were just foreign lands, the last stops of ancestors’ stray.”
The exhibition is Daniel Lee’s collection of photos he took while travelling in China in 1984. At that year, Lee went back to this land of nostalgia for the first time after 30-year separation. He captured the image of a mysterious China with no cross-strait exchange. China had always been an ambiguous and untouchable childhood memory for Lee till 1980s. Due to a friend’s invitation, Lee returned to China and started an exploration in this land which is both familiar and strange for him at the same time.

This collection received recognition in the art circle and won a reward of American Photography Yearbook in 1984. Part of this collection is included in Lee’s first photo album Today’s Ancient Canal, the first photo album about China published in Taiwan after the martial law was declared.

Daniel Lee was born in Chonching, and immigrated to Taiwan when he was little. As an Asian artist, his career of photography and digital art are well acknowledged in the Western art circle. He participated in some of the most important international art exhibition, such as Venice Biennale, Linz Ars Electronia Festival, and Kassel Art Festival. His works are collected in some important art institutions both in Taiwan and aboard, e.g. Documenta und Museum Fridericianum gGmbH in Kassel, Germany. Furthermore, some of his works are included in art textbooks for students in Yale and Oxford. Lee’s works were demonstrated in a review exhibition in Taipei Museum of Fine Art in 2016, and gained a lot of applause.

Yuan Hau-Li
“The discrete rocks in Discrete Islands in Potential Series demonstrate the mental status of diaspora, the metaphor of loneliness among relationships.” said Yuan Hau-Li.

In Discrete Islands in Potential Series, blank and distance between rocks symbolize the gestures and positions of people in their every-day lives and ethical rules. “The exploration of material texture could be shown with the minimalism style,” said Yuan. “and the inner power of ink can emerge through cotton texture due to its characteristic.”

Yuan Hau-Li graduated from National College of Art (now Taipei University of Art) with bachelor degree in fine art, majored in ink wash painting. She then continued her study in fine art creation in Taipei University of Art seeking a master degree. After that, she applied for Doctoral Program in Art Creation and Theory in Tainan National University of Arts.
In Yuan’s career, she tries to open up the boundary between traditional ink wash painting and modern art craft, questioning the core meaning of ink wash painting with a deeper and wider philosophy. She thinks out of the box of traditional Chinese ink wash painting by emphasizing the importance of self-consciousness and individuals’ decisive power to tradition and modernity, and abstraction and realism. Her works were collected by Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Art, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, China Hun-Lu Museum, as well as some private collectors.

Yang Zi Ran 1957-
Yang was born in Chiayi, and graduated from Chinese Culture University. He is now popular among local art circle. His ink wash paintings have been demonstrated in ART TAICHUNG, ART TAINAN, and ART KAOHSIUNG. In addition, he has also held his solo exhibition Walk through the Nature and couple exhibition the Vast Nature.

Yang’s ink wash paintings bring the audience to the straight feeling of simplification, brightness, and tenderness. In order to present those features, he doesn’t do much decoration to his works. Therefore, he has to focus more on the strength and finishing of the brush stroke, and be more careful switching between strong and fine formats.

Various subjects, such as people, scenery, even deformed figure, mountain, cloud, and tree, appear in his paintings and show his devotion to art. Blank is never absent in Yang’s work. “It's essential to ink wash painting,” he said. It represents for the Yang style.

Gilles Lan 1974-
“Surrounded by concrete buildings in the modern cities, people often forget to slow down and take a look of those little natural things in everyday lives.”

Lan graduated from Tunghai University with a degree of fine art, majored in gouache, then went to study art and music in France. He has experiences participating in various Taiwan and Asian art exhibitions, and puts a lot of efforts on sharing the romanticism philosophy about nature and human emotion with people living in the busy cities via his art works and his own life.

Lan’s works present the traditional style of Chinese painting art craft. With the tender brush stroke and realistic images of daily life scenery, including birds and plants, his paintings create a balance between traditional and new style. Different color saturation of the flat tone in his paintings brings out some invisible details in everyday life. These details exist in his works those combine imagination and reality, as well as those ignored corners in the busy cities.

Laio I-Chin 1987-
Laio was born in New Taipei City, Taiwan. Living and immersing in the beauty of Taiwan Strait in her early years, Laio was more or less inspired by the power of natural order. She graduated from Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a master degree in fine art. During her time in the U.S., Liao accumulated more knowledge about Automatism of American Abstract Expressionism and action painting, and improved her painting skills. Additionally, she combined her art works with hermeneutical aesthetics, showing artist’s real feelings and experiences with which make her paintings like abstract poems.

“Relationship” is at the core Liao’s philosophy of art creation. For instance, relationship between time and space, different materials, even relationship between smell and emotion.

Hsiang-lin Chien 1993-
“A vulnerable animal howls when it’s grabbed by a powerful hand with bulging blue veins. It continuously struggles and resists.”

Chien was graduated from Tainan National University of Arts with a master degree in applied arts this year. She was honorably mentioned in Da-Dun Fine Arts Exhibition in 2018 and Next Art Tainan this year. Furthermore, at the same time of nomination, her art works were co-exhibited with those of Daniel Lee, an artist resented by YIART, in the exhibition Uneven Parallel in Tainan.

Chien has been passionate about pottery ever since she was little. After having come of age, she starts dedicating to animal protection issue, and focus on criticism about animal cruelty and power relation between animal and human being. Her realistic pottery sculptures of hybrid of animals and human beings create freakish and tense atmosphere as well as visual shock to the audience.
