The Other and the folds in Creative Context: Studies in Painting by Po-Chia Wu
The research motive of this dissertation is rooted in a comprehensive review of the author’s works created during doctoral studies. An analysis and exploration of the atypical break between creative series is launched. The dissertation’s research content has been divided into three primary categories to further explore: “the atypical break in creative context”, “ the ‘transformation autochtone’ and modality of creative thinking” and “painting’s dependency on the visual”: How does one comprehend the “atypical break” that seem related yet not entirely continuous between the author’s painting series? Can the incomplete break between the series be reconsidered through a “transformation autochtone” on creative concept? As Foucault passionately states in The Order of Things: “decisions shall never neglect any form of discontinuity, rupture, threshold or limits” – can it be recognized as the result of transgression or folds in thought and idea? The significance behind the existence of painting is its existence itself; painting is no longer a carrier to communicate or propagate because painting now acts as a simulated matter that echoes the connection between the artist’s life and the world – but how does one practice such concept through painting? The dissertation’s research context will mainly refer to Foucault’s writings and Deleuze’s A Thousand Plateaus. Three exceptional artists – Gerhard Richter, Robert Morris and Allan Kaprow – whose creative concepts and issues that concern them present some parallels with the author will also be discussed as validations of the author’s research and thoughts. Between the artist, their artwork, and their written discourse, varied exhibits of a homogenous nature should be the ultimate goal. Through exploration and debate of literature and theories, analysis of works by art masters, together with the author’s curiosity in the realms of contemporary physics, science and topology, the author attempts to be rid of own’s shackles and treat the ambiguity of such creative context as the folds and transgression of ideas and thoughts, which wil serve as the advanced research and practice of this dissertation’s proposition.
