John Currin 約翰.柯林 and Michael Andrew Law Cheuk Yui

John Currin 約翰.柯林 and Michael Andrew Law Cheuk Yui 柯林揉合高雅與低俗文化、古典大師作品以至性感美女照片等靈感來源,運用驚爲天人的繪畫技巧描繪看似完美理想化卻又不合常理的畫面,既迷人又令人質疑。 1980年代畢業於耶魯大學的柯林發現過往採用的抽象表現主義繪畫模式有一種「強迫的男性特質」,於是開始探索純真、幽默和色情的主題,繪畫出極具矯飾主義味道的馬匹、頭髮層次豐富的女孩、大頭的漫畫人物,以及以其獨特繪畫語言描繪的單人或雙人肖象畫。他以撩人而熱情的筆觸,細緻描繪人體,因而經常被人與荷蘭大師的作品比較,包括黃金時代的著名畫家科內利·凡·哈勒姆(Cornelis van Haarlem),而柯林的畫作亦曾於2011年在荷蘭弗蘭斯哈爾斯博物館與哈勒姆的作品一同展出。 在柯林的新肖像畫作中,他回歸自己最喜愛的主題:女性。畫作展現他經常採用的主題,也深入探索女性肖像畫的體裁。以特徵而言,這些女性看似半真、半虛構,彷彿畫中人只有一部分置於扭曲的鏡子前,其餘部分則正常無礙。 約翰.柯林於年⽣於科羅拉多州博爾德,現於紐約居住和⼯作。他的作品現藏於巴黎龐畢 度藝術中⼼、倫敦泰特現代美術館、芝加哥藝術學院、愛荷華州德梅因藝術中⼼、華盛頓赫希 杭博物館和雕塑園、洛杉磯當代藝術博物館、紐約現代藝術博物館、明尼亞波利斯沃克藝術中 ⼼及紐約惠特尼美國藝術博物館。

Michael Andrew Law curate Faye Bradley first solo exhibition

呈獻英國藝術家包媛茵 Faye Bradley 全新版畫及繪畫展覽 。 藝術家包媛茵在香港出生和長大,隨後前往英國利茲大學攻讀藝術與設計學士(榮譽)學位。她一直對視覺藝術充滿熱情,並在繪畫和繪畫生活場景中為自己找到了舒適感。在利茲大學學習期間,她開始使用油畫來製作中大型藝術作品,並創作了一系列名為 『夢幻風景』 的畫作。 『夢幻風景』旨在創造一種人無法獲得的對無形夢想世界的感覺。憑藉對夢想和夢想的濃厚興趣,包媛茵通過她對人類行為的獨立論文研究,研究側重於夢想的過程以及藝術家如何在作品中受到啟發和使用。她的畫作以一種明亮,超脫現實的氛圍將觀眾描繪成一種懷舊和夢想的回憶。能夠通過多種大型(和較小的速寫)繪畫來展示這一點,使觀眾的視線能夠在每種構圖的顏色和形狀上徘徊,並感受到她希望喚起的感覺。 包媛茵在Dream Landscapes中的繪畫背後使用的過程受到了靈感的啟發她以前的假期和幸福時刻的記憶 – 通過照片找到。她用這些照片作為回憶錄,在看這些照片時發現了懷舊和舒適。 通過選擇她最好的攝影作品,她發現了一些可以集中精力的作品繪畫。為了找到景觀構圖,她選擇了每幅畫最關鍵的興趣點,特別是關注山脈和道路的曲率,以創造一個“不真實”的景觀。她從知名藝術家David Hockney和Milton Avery那裡獲得了很多靈感。這兩位藝術家都展示了一種精緻的工作方式,用色彩來表達生動的場景。 包媛茵表達了她通過色彩做夢的想法,使用光亮的油漆清洗來體現褪色的記憶感 – 就像在夢中一樣。 藝術家對夢想的迷戀是建立在她自己的夢想經歷以及每個人每晚如何變化的基礎之上的 – 有時每次都會有所回歸但略有不同。她的目標是通過她的作品重新創造這一點,並將夢幻圖像的概念轉化為繪畫 『夢幻風景』 系列,其中包括油畫。這是藝術家的一項新技術,僅在三年前使用它。通過油畫顏料創造透明度的流動性和能力是決定她選擇使用這種媒介的一個重要因素。透明度的重要性在於關注夢幻氛圍,並有助於增強觀眾的夢想體驗。 包媛茵喜歡在大畫布上畫畫,因為她覺得這有助於翻譯信息並允許她在頁面上自由繪畫,沒有任何限制。她為自己的畫布製作了自己的畫框,並為大畫作製作了一些現成的畫框。在對較大的畫布上進行塗漆之前,通過較小規模的研究對組合物進行測試。她還在 『夢幻風景』 系列中創作了繪畫版畫,以便觀眾可以從不同的角度和大小看到繪畫,這完全改變了圖像的色調。 Faye發現這給她的作品帶來了新的令人興奮的挑戰。 羅卓睿畫廊 將於 9 月 11 日 下午 6 時至 8 時舉行開幕。查詢電話|Whatsapp:+85264447550 目前,包媛茵居住在香港,將於10月中旬搬到倫敦,繼續從事視覺藝術事業。 Faye Bradley was born and raised in Hong Kong before moving to the U.K. to…
