Maudie Brown: Naturally Creative - November 21st till December 31st, 2015

Maudie Brown 是一位知名畫家,擅長肖像畫,畫風大膽而且充滿張力。繪畫素材以油彩和壓克力顏料為主,用色鮮明強烈,筆觸隨興所至。她的肖像畫作品清楚傳達畫中人物的個性和情感。受到居住環境克拉哈利沙漠的影響,她的畫作時常以探索非洲住民的文化為主題。藝術對她來說,是一種描述非洲大地原始之美的方式。「我想要在作品當中創造一個真實空間,並且在這個空間加上層層交疊的色彩,來挑戰觀畫人對空間的視覺感官。這是一種控制與自由、放縱與紀律之間的平衡。」 「我深受非洲文化和色彩的影響。非洲每一種事物的色彩都是鮮明艷麗,我想要把這種衝擊的體驗表達在我的畫作當中。」

the colours and cultures of africa

Maudie Brown is a South African painter known for her powerful and bold portraits. She is currently based in Taipei. She works in both oils and acrylics, often with vivid colors and strong, spontaneous brushstrokes. Her portraits are known to convey character and strong emotions. Influenced by the Kalahari Desert where she grew up, her work often explores the theme of indigenous cultures and the people of Africa. To her art is a way to portray the raw beauty of the world she lives in. "I'm interested in creating realistic space, yet adding flat fields of color to breakdown how the viewer sees that space. It is a balance of control and freedom, discipline and play. I'm influenced by the colors and culture of Africa. Everything there is so vivid and colorful. I try to express that explosiveness in my paintings.”

Post Apocalypse

And Dulan was never the same again...the Ape Apocalypse party was a resounding success for party goers and animal lovers on the night of September 26. Uncle Pete and the Bulldog's china opened with their unique mix of bluegrass/hillbilly meets folk. Uncle Pete looked the part in his farmer john attire, and his son Balow stole the show with his drum solos. The Apes, amid rumours of autopsy theft and fueled by the recent media-driven panic concerning health issues (rabies in particular) finally arrived in a storm of apocalyptic mayhem, blowing speakers and eardrums, and destroying any expectations of what Apocalyptic Ape Rock should sound like. The audience looked apprehensive at times, not sure what to make of a band that refused to stand still (a rare sight in Taiwan), but after taking their Ape-bite antedote shots, several human observers seemed more willing to let loose and join the apes in their world. Ape Apocalypse played several sets of energetic punk rock that eventually brought the police down at 9pm.. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for news of the next WaGaLiGong Rooftop Party coming this October!

Video footage shows apes stealing corpse - is this the Ape Apocalypse?

APE APOCALYPSE IS HEADING YOUR WAY - CADAVER MISSING FROM KAOHSIUNG HOSPITAL. Mild panic has seized cities in south Taiwan after a bizarre incident on Monday September 22nd involving several members of a monkey troop. Two apes, one apparently disguised as nurse and patient, broke into a hospital in Kaohsiung, managing to by-pass security and staff. Although motives are still unclear, security cameras clearly show the apes stealing a cadaver awaiting autopsy from the coroner's department. Hospital officials have refused to comment on the incident, raising questions as to how the alleged apes managed to outsmart strict security and bluff nurses. Banana peels and animal fur have been found on the scene. Military personnel have quarantined all hospital staff and patients, and government agencies in Taiwan are on yellow alert, the highest alert status since martial law ended in the late 80's. Other ape sightings have also occurred in both Pingtung and Taitung counties. Animal experts are debating whether the incident is linked to recent attacks on tourists at other locations in southern Taiwan, Donghe in Taitung County in particular where several Chinese tourists were bitten after trying to feed monkeys some 'rou bao' (meat buns) at a popular monkey viewing spot. In related news farmers and hippies around Dulan, Taitung County, have reported sightings of apes on the foothills of Dulan Mountain. Eyewitness reports seem to confirm suspicions that apes island wide are migrating south, and seem to be drawn to Dulan in particular, with several hippies and tourists having their shoes (the tourists) and smart phones (the hippies) snatched. One eye-witness account described a particular band of apes dressed in orange jumpsuits. The man, a farmer, spotted four figures on his farm. "I saw several figures dressed in orange while I was cutting grass. On approaching the men they scattered into the bush. But they didn't walk like humans..they moved more like monkeys than humans and they must have been wearing masks because their faces were black..(I) only glimpsed their faces but they were wearing masks (I'm) quite sure..it was the way they moved, monkey-like.. I will never forget.." Police are investigating and have set up free tetanus centers at several villages in case of bites and in fear of a rabies epidemic. In Dulan, a tetanus center has been set up at WagaLiGong, Dulan 89. Locals and tourists alike, in town for the mid-autumn festival long weekend, are urged to immediately report any ape sightings and to get their anti-rabies shots. Meanwhile in Kaohsiung and Pingtung counties, police and animal experts are still searching for the missing cadaver. - source: propaganda&slander
