藝術家介紹 | Artist Statement
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).
