Tim Budden

英國藝術家與藝術教育者,工作與生活於臺灣。Tim 目前的藝術創作嘗試整合他自身的英國文化涵養與所在的臺灣文化。

擁有裝置藝術、雕塑、劇場藝術與卡通繪製等專業背景,Tim在1990年來到臺灣,並開始接收民俗傳統藝術的中式剪紙的啟發,對身為雕塑藝術家的他來說,剪紙中的裁剪與鑿刻看來再自然不過。

臺灣的在地文化透過他的西方藝術視角轉化、並反映在他的創作模式中。除了剪,他為紙張上色、灼燒紙張邊緣,以自然與民間故事為靈感探索記憶、身份認同、生命循環等主題。他的作品多半以裝置形式展出、並透過劇場打光探討光亮、黑暗與其間生成的影子之間的關係。

Tim的作品曾於歐洲與亞洲多處展出。包括富邦藝術基金會粉樂町展覽、樹火紙基金會、臺北當代工藝設計分館、新竹市立博物館、臺北當代藝術館;日本富士川町博物館。他也曾與許多臺灣企業合作,包括台灣大哥大、英國唐寧茶、MILK X雜誌與香奈兒。作為藝術教育工作者,Tim與各年齡層的學員進行授課與合作。他目前在臺北當代藝術館長期開設專門給兒童、青少年與成人參與的設計課程。

Tim Budden is a UK artist & educator who currently lives and works in Taiwan. His current art is an attempt to integrate his Western upbringing with the Taiwanese Chinese culture in which he now lives and works.

With a background in Installation art, Sculpture, Theatre art and Cartooning, Tim arrived in Taipei in the 1990’s and became inspired by the traditional folk art of Chinese paper cutting. Cutting and carving paper seemed to be a natural step for him as a sculptor.

Using his western eyes to make sense of himself as well as this Taiwanese Chinese culture in which he lives and works has led to his current work in which paper is painted, cut or burned. Exploring themes such as memory, identity and the cycle of life through natural and traditional folk art imagery the works are exhibited in installation like settings and lit in a theatrical way to explore light and dark through shadows.

Tim’s work has been exhibited in Europe and Asia. Exhibitions in Taiwan include Fubon Art Foundation’s Very Fun Park, Suho Paper Foundation, National Museum of Contemporary Craft, Hsinchu City Museum & MOCA. Exhibitions in Asia include Fujikawa Museum in Japan. He has worked on numerous projects in Taiwan with clients such as Taiwan Mobile, Twining’s Tea, Shiseido cosmetics and Milk X magazine & Chanel. As an art educator Tim works with students of all ages and currently designs and runs programs for children, teenagers and adults at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei (MOCA).
