Ah Leon 陳景亮 (b. 1953)

Born in 1953, Ah Leon is one of Taiwan’s most renowned ceramic artists. He graduated from the National Taiwan Academy of Arts in 1976, and from 1978 to 1982, sought the apprenticeship of famous ceramic artists throughout Taiwan In 1982, he participated in a artist-in-residency at the State of University of New York, USA. Ah Leon has exhibited extensively in Asia, Europe and America since 1985, including the National Palace Museum in Taipei, the National Ceramics Museum in Denmark, the Phoenix Art Museum in Arizona, and the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Los Angeles. Ah Leon’s works are collected by renowned Museums including the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the Taiwan Museum of Art in Taichung the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Ah Leon’s works have been described as a trompe l’oeil, or a deception of the eyes; as he indulges in the manipulation of clay to mimic the silken, softness of bean curd, or the sturdiness of wood. Viewers are engaged in a rare, sensory experience, as the delicate touch of the ceramic, lies contradictory to the visual enticement of the impersonating ‘wood’ or ‘tofu’, eliciting humorous responses, as one vacillates between realism and fabrication.
