The winner of the exhibit’s top prize, “The Taitung Award” went to Yu Kwang-chung’s poem Taitung, as well as Restrained and Falling. Generally speaking, the panel of judges expressed that the eastern painting this year strove to break out of traditional molds. In addition, the western paintings were quite refined, while the videography, sculpture and new media were all quite novel. The latter three types of art were all meticulously crafted, provided interpretations of how our environment affects our emotions and displayed subtle observations regarding contemporary collective life. These works are rich in detail, distinctly unique and use contemporary art to exhibit Taitung’s unique local cultural milieu. You’re cordially invited to attend and feel how Taitung is brimming with artistic energy.
