A Road Without Bends—Master Lacquer Artist Wang Ching-shuang (30’)
Wang Ching-shuang spent his early years on the production side of the lacquer industry, but later moved to the creative side of lacquer art where he developed a unique style. This program looks at the life of a craftsman, the events that marked his progress, as well as the human side of his development. We look at his influences, the development of his technique, reveal the dedication that goes into the making of a great craftsman, rather than focusing on the works themselves. This video record of his life, and the ways the art has been passed down from one generation to another, will serve to promote this ancient art in the modern world.
Lacquer Artistry—The Theory of Lacquer Art and Makie Technique (30’)
Relief makie is one of the most complex and difficult of the forms of lacquer art, and the one requiring a solid artistic foundation. The techniques comprise tracing the pattern onto the lacquer, using powdered charcoal to build up the relief image, and laying gold, silver or bronze power or powdered lacquer on top of this. This technique can create a sense of depth within the lacquer, and the patterns interact on different levels and through the play of light and shadow. This program takes a look at the theory and practice of how relief makie is created to serve as a document for the transmission of this art. It is part of a systematic system of information about Taiwan’s folk arts that will assist in its further development in Taiwan.
