紐約當代藝術家,奧普海姆(Peter Opheim b.1961-),有著斯堪地那維亞血統(Scandinavia)。他最新的作品帶著一些北歐神話與色彩,無論你知不知道北歐神話,其實都沒關係,奧普海姆的作品始終擁有純粹、天馬行空及療癒感,這正是步調緊湊、生活壓抑的現代人所缺少的。


「噬山者們 Bite the Mountain - Eat the Forest














奧普海姆(Peter Opheim)的每一件作品都是獨一無二,奇幻象徵。奧普海姆認為這些角色的性格,是積極正面與純粹的,都是地球上最好的典範。



Peter Opheim: Bite the Mountain - Eat the Forest


Artist | Peter Opheim

Duration | June 5 – July 4, 2021

Venue | Powen Gallery ( No.11, Ln. 164, Songjiang Rd., Zhongshan Dist., Taipei City 104, Taiwan / 10:00-19:00 Closed on Mondays )


In accordance with the latest anti-epidemic measures of the Taipei City Government, Powen Gallery is temporarily closed until June 14. Welcome to view the exhibition online.


Peter Opheim (1961–) is a New York contemporary artist, with ancestors from Scandinavia. His recent works carry the color of mythology of Northern Europe. However, an understanding of the myths in this part of the world is not required to appreciate Opheim’s creation. His works always have a sense of purity, unbridled freedom, and healing. With our lives of daily hustle and bustle and stress, this is precisely what people today need.


Bite the Mountain - Eat the Forest


Opheim is now 60 years old. His paintings are distinctive and unique. As his style   easily resonates with people in the developed countries, invitations for exhibitions have continued to roll in from the US, as well as France, the Netherlands, UK, Japan, Germany, Russia, and others.


The characters in his paintings never repeat. 


Opheim could have just created a single character and produced an unlimited number of paintings based upon it; this would have saved him a lot of trouble. However, he believes that the different characters and sprites in his creations may exist in real life; like all the people on earth, no two persons are identical. Each has its own aesthetics, granted by God; all have unique personalities and life stories. There are no repeats. However, Opheim has noticed that once people become socialized, groups may possess a collective consciousness, and become constrained by brainwashing, to the point that all the individual color is lost; finally, the sense of self is lost and doubts about the meaning and value of individual’s existence creep in.  


Unlimited imagination.


Modern people’s consciousnesses have been kidnapped; they have lost their basic ability to imagine, and even the courage to think. Therefore, every character in his paintings might be male, female, old, young, human, or another animal; he paints without specificity, giving us a license to imagine by ourselves. This forms a major characteristic of Opheim’s works. He believes that we all have inherent artistic qualities (imagination). If the viewer feels the power of healing or resonates with his works, this may be because they have found the “innocence” that belongs to us within his paintings. This is worthy of being celebrated and cherished. 


Are the paintings animals, human beings, or sprites? The answers are left to the viewer’s imagination.


Every work by Peter Opheim is unique, and a symbol of fantasy. He believes that the characters have positive and pure personalities; they are the best exemplars on earth.
