Before Sunset

The illustrator moves to Tainan for an artist-in-residence program. The heat of the Tainan sun is beyond his imagination, so he chooses to go out at four or five in the late afternoon. The streets are gold-tinged, a nostalgic tint that bathes the streets and alleys in a kind of stillness, quite different from the bustle of daytime. He decides to record every day's sunset with a drawing--a series of works he titled Before Sunset. Working on this series gives him a new perspective on the place where he grew up, and even a new perspective on other cities. This is a chronicle of a search for a city's soul, in text and in pictures. It's an opportunity to look at the simplicity and quiet of our living spaces, qualities that have been gradually forgotten. Every image is clean and comforting, the writing sincere and touching.

安靜的時間

★ 第38次中小學生優良課外讀物文學創作類

插畫家因為駐村計劃,離開台中南下,只當是在度假。台南夏天太陽的炙熱超乎想像,他選擇在四五點的時候出門,傍晚的街道,染上一點金黃,古樸的色調,讓街道巷弄沉浸在一股安靜,有別於白天的浮躁。於是他希望自己待在這裡的每一天,都能以畫記錄一幅它的黃昏時刻──Before Sunset,因此開始了這系列的創作。在此過程中,他也學習轉眼凝視自身熟悉的生長環境,重新拾掇與它的回憶,甚至擴及其他城市角落⋯⋯本書除了畫作,更有這一心路歷程的文字敘述。以話以畫尋找城市原生靈魂,看見生活空間中已被忘記、漸被遺忘的單純和安靜。畫面淨化深具療癒感,文字誠摯動人。
