    朱銘 太極拱門 銅雕

    簽名:朱銘 2-20
    版數:2/20

    來源:英國私人收藏家於1992年購自香港漢雅軒
    (附香港漢雅軒收據)

    太極拱門的靈感源於兩人對招的太極推手,它是朱銘享譽國際的「太極系列」中的最後一個大系,完美詮釋了太極氣韻流轉的深意,為太極系列劃下圓滿的句點。相比早期的太極系列,太極拱門將過去的兩個獨立的推手個體連接起來,合為一體,彷彿有一股無形的「氣」蘊藏其中,由左邊傳到右邊,再由右邊回傳到左邊,周而復始,生生不息。推手的人物形態在這裡已經不復存在,藝術家的造境進入了一種抽象兼具現代性的造型領域,充分傳達了藝術家的美學觀點與創作理念,以及對大自然的尊崇。

    此件拱門的造型是朱銘開始「太極拱門」系列後的首個正式造型。該造型更大版本的作品——1986年創作的〈仲門〉,目前擺放在香港中文大學大學圖書館正門前,是中大本部重要地標之一,被稱為「烽火台」。
