「我很少用言語表達我的想法,圖像是記錄我想法的工具。」賴美華在她的創作理念中開宗明義如是說。其實,她敏感的心有著無數的想法在蘊釀,因此習慣「用畫筆來寫日記」,一朵花、一片雲、一輪彎月、海水、音樂、文學等,感受生命中美好的事物,都是她創作的靈感。成為歌頌美麗的藝術家,是賴美華從小的心願,因此花卉、葉子、種子、眼睛等象徵美好的符號,都成為她畫中常用的創作元素,以細膩的筆觸、柔和的線條與漸層的色彩,串連而成看似美麗的作品,卻深藏著藝術家深切的情感。

賴美華的創作把對人生的感受與幻想,以個人的繪畫語彙表達出來。她以純女性觀點為基礎,描繪超現實的潛意識活動,作品構圖鮮明多變,色調強烈大膽,形成賴美華強悍的繪畫風格,呈現出內在生命的熾情,讓觀者感受到強烈的張力。 色彩和筆觸鮮明,強烈大膽的多面向畫作,讓人感染作者創作的狂喜。她畫中出現的花、臉譜、人體、動物等元素,交織成豐富而充滿性暗示的畫面。

賴美華說:「我不在意別人將我的畫看做是性的符號,性是人生一大事,是一種自然的行為,沒有應不應該或罪惡的評斷。」藝評家陸蓉之認為,賴美華可以歸為台灣原生女性主義代表人物,「她的女性主義是發乎本能的自覺,而不是一種思想性的潮流或運動,看起來欠缺理論的支持,其實正因為如此創作者反而更理直氣壯了。」賴美華的作品,充滿女性的敏銳情感,傳達對生命底層的探索,時而表現瑰麗幸福的情調,時而透出憾人詭譎的氛圍,足以喚起觀者靈魂深處的共鳴。

 

“I rarely use words to express my thoughts, painting is the tool to I use to express my ideas and thinking.” Lai Mai-Hua states the purpose of her artistic concept from the very beginning. Actually, there are many more ideas in her sensitive mind. She has long been used to recording her daily experiences through painting. Flowers, a passing cloud, a new moon, the ocean, music, literature and indeed any lovely things in the life can all inspire her to create. To become an artist capable of expressing beauty was her ambition from childhood, thus, flower, leaf, seed, eye … natural features appear throughout her work as creative elements, painted in delicate brushstrokes and gentle lines, and containing many shades of colour.

Lai´s works are full emotion and imagination, with influences from feminism and expression of the subconscious mind through surrealism; thus the composition of her paintings is bright, vivid, varied, and vibrantly-coloured. These come together to create a strongly individual character, which sets out Lai´s passion for life and leaves the viewer affected with a fierce tension. In her work, flowers, masks, human figures and animals are often interweaved closely, laid out in a way to suggest a sexual meaning.

“I don´t mind people thinking my painting symbolise sex” Lai said, “Sex is a big deal for human beings, sex is a kind of naturalness.” Art critic Lu Yung-Chi recognises Lai as significant in Taiwanese native feminism: “Lai´s feminism originates in her instinct of conscientious initiation, not as part of a trend or a movement of ideology. It looks like it is not very theoretical, but just because of that, the artist comes across as more righteous and bold.” Above all Lai´s work is full with emotion and feminine delicacy, which expresses her thoughts and feelings about being and existence; on some occasions it shows surpassing beauty, on others it unveils a fearful secrecy.  It touches a chord with the viewer.
