Literature:

‘I am merely depicting nature and what I see before my eyes, be it a person or an apple. I know this will invite ridicule. But what is reality? I don’t know.‘— Tan Swie Hian in Embracing Infinity: Works by Tan Swie Hian

“我僅僅描繪大自然和我在眼前看到的東西,無論是人还是蘋果。我知道這會引起嘲笑。但現實是什么?我不知道。”— 無時無涯 : 陳瑞獻作品展


Rooted in an artistic practice that stems from a firm Buddhist belief, Tan Swie Hian’s paintings are conceived within the glimpse of a higher reality. His identity as an artist is inseparable from his personal belief, from which springs a courage that underlies Tan’s assertion of his otherworldly vision – all the more admirable in a society regulated by strict rationality, market values, and the dictates of secularization. In an environment like this, it is uncommon to find an artist figure that relentlessly stays true to his convictions. 陳瑞獻的藝術實踐植根於堅定的佛教信仰,畫作是在超現實的境界構思出來。

他藝術家的身份與他的信仰是分不開的,也因為這信仰帶給他的勇氣,創作過程值得超凡脫俗,與世俗的市場和價值規範截然不同,更令人欽佩。在這樣的環境中,藝術家還堅持初心,是難能可貴的。
