last weekend i went to the kaohsiung museum of fine art. they were having a show with work from the 24th kaohsiung art awards. to be honest alot of what i saw i felt was pretty derivative. some of it i wondered what it was doing in a museum, but maybe i’m just missing something about the work. most of the better work was mentioned in the pamhplet for the show. my favourite pieces were by lin ching-fang. when i first saw his paintings i thought they were really ugly, but i couldn’t look away and they ended up being my favourite thing at the show. the picture above doesn’t do justice to the garishness of the colours in person.
