創作者 Amanda Ruiqing Flynn（林蕊清）說：「創作是我和我個人內心的對話，展現出來變成與您的對話。這些作品是我個人的經驗，是我的學習過程，是我的渴望，是我的歡笑，也是我的眼淚。藝術家馬克·夏卡爾曾經說過：『在我們的生活中只有一個顏色，這個顏色提供了生活跟藝術的意義。這個顏色就是愛。』」
Amanda Ruiqing Flynn 出生於新加坡，八歲移民到英國，在英國長大。她在倫敦大學亞非學院念中文跟發展學，畢業之後來到台灣花蓮，一邊創作一邊教書。她目前在國立東華大學念藝設系研究所，被花蓮神秘的山跟浪漫的海吸引，眨眼之間就待了六年。她希望您在欣賞她的展覽時會產生一些共鳴或連結，期待您用不同的眼光去欣賞這美妙的世界。
Love is a huge driving force in our lives, yet when pressed, it is difficult to describe or depict exactly what it is. When asked, every single person will have a slightly different answer, shaped by our hopes, our experiences, our scars and our hearts. The way we feel and show love is unique to each of us like the lines that etch our faces.
Artist Marc Chagall once said, “In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.” I am driven to create from my heart, and this exhibition is a conversation between myself and my inner voice, and now with you. I explore different emotions associated with love, different types of love, and the different ages of love.
Amanda Ruiqing Flynn was born in Singapore, and at the age of eight, she and her family emigrated to the United Kingdom. It was there that she spent the formative years of her life. She read Chinese and Development Studies at SOAS, University of London, with the hopes of doing something to better the world. She came to Taiwan as a teacher in 2012, planning to stay a year to teach and to paint. She was seduced by Hualien’s majestic mountains and wild waters and has now lived here for six years. She is currently completing a Master’s degree in Art and Design at National Donghua University, Hualien.
