摩訶大聖羯摩曼荼羅

 2005-2007

「羯摩」的意思之一就是立體空間,佛家有「三世」之說,就是過去、現在、未來。《摩訶大聖羯摩曼荼羅》這個單元呈現的是佛之三世中的未來世界,而主角就是楊茂林自己的偶像「悟空」,且同時借用了佛教東方、西方、與中土的空間觀;以及佛教過去、現在、未來的時間觀。這一系列作品在形式上處理得特別莊嚴和諧,在染色的技術上有一些楊茂林過去繪畫經驗中延伸出來的美感,曖曖含光效果的金屬表面,與佛教教義中慈悲凝斂的形象,更具有視覺上與精神層面的連貫。


 

Canonized Karma of Maha with Mandalas | 2005-2007

In Buddhism, the “Three Lives” refer to the past, the present and the future. The Canonized Karma of Maha with Mandalas series materialize the image of the future, Yang Mao-lin has borrowed the Buddhist concepts of space (i.e. the East, the West, the Middle-earth) and time (i.e. the past, the present, the future). All the pieces in the series are plated for gleaming shine to create a solemn and peaceful atmosphere. The gleaming gilded statues fit perfectly with the serene, solemn and holy atmosphere that Buddhism pursues, and thus create a greater sense of physical and spiritual coherence.
