The Returning and Investigation of the Value of Hand
I have been an ardent lover of hands-on works since I was a child. Besides, my family background and life experience deepens my feelings for the “hand”. I think that artists are craftsmen. They are good at using hands to create various appearances to interact with the world. Art begins with men’s fingertips. The artistic expression of hand is never absent, from primeval cave paintings to the great works of great Renaissance artists to contemporary artists’ various practices. However, there is still insufficient research about the artistic expression of the hand. The main aim of this thesis is to probe the artistic value and the ideological context of the hand. I take Michel Foucault’s The Archaeology of Knowledge as a way of thinking, it is similarly used with the hand as the core to grab the important theory related to the hand from the outside, such as the hand in art history, anatomy and medical science, anthropology and psychology, and the hand in the eyes of great artists. I also analyze and induce the similarities and differences of the multivariate artistry of the hand through the process of reciprocal reference. I take it a step further by researching the large amount of artistic expression works of the hand during the Surrealist period. I do research on how the artistic value of the hand is embodied completely through photography, Surrealism, Photorealism and contemporary artists’ varied practices. Finally, comparing and analyzing art history to my hand-related works, and probing how new artistic values of the hand and the possibility of application under the influence of contemporary aesthetics and the current digital technology could be created and the imagery of the hand could be probed and created as an issue. I have probed the hand as an artistic theme for more than twelve years. In the past, I observed and applied the hand as an object. After doing in-depth research in the past few years, I slowly began creating with the hand as the subject to probe the core imagery of the hand. Therefore, this thesis not only does in-depth research and discusses the application of the hand as the artistic theme, which the current academia lacks. A more important aim is to explore the origin of consciousness and the evolution of ideological context of my artistic creation, and also do research on the meaning of refined ideology, and finally, complete my complete artistic creation context and system.
