    我们很荣幸地宣布艺·凯旋画廊将于201998日在798艺术区推出艺术家同名个展“刘锋植”。此次展览将呈现艺术家自上世纪90年代至2015年的一系列作品,其中囊括了人物肖像、静物以及风景在内的50余件作品,是一次对刘锋植创作生涯的梳理与回顾。

刘锋植,1964年出生于哈尔滨,毕业于哈尔滨师范大学美术系的他在上学期间正值改革开放初期,西方现代艺术开始进入中国,现代主义艺术,如后印象派以及表现主义等艺术风格对刘锋植产生了较大影响。经过了一段时期对后印象派风格的模仿,在1995年以后的一系列作品中,刘锋植开始确立他自己的独特风格。在色彩上大胆地使用平涂的饱和色,并用黑色来控制画面的色彩关系,同时让线条独立出来。刘锋植的线条有时以轮廓出现,有时又完全是独立地游走,在画面上漂浮、运动,仿佛是一种心理的轨迹、一种情绪在画面上游动,构成画面中生动且极具表现力的部分。他对表现性绘画风格的执着和个体性情的发挥,带有书写性的奔放笔触,以及他自己对标志性主题的反复涂画,带有孩子气的涂鸦和恣意的想象,一直给我们留下深刻印象。

    由于展览体量限制,此次展览无法完整地呈现艺术家刘锋植近三十年艺术创作生涯的完全样貌,艺·凯旋画廊将会在未来的几年中陆续推出围绕艺术家刘锋植的艺术与创作的展览项目,通过我们的梳理与研究,力求为藏家与艺术爱好者提供一个深入了解这位独特艺术家的窗口。


 

 

关于艺术家

   


    刘锋植1964年出生于中国哈尔滨市,1984年毕业于哈尔滨师范大学美术系,于2017年病逝。近年来作品被海内外收藏家广泛收藏。无论是风景还是人物绘画,刘锋植作品都带有强烈的主观性和情绪色彩。他以自由而松散的笔触和线条将物体原有的体量感抽离,特别是借助线条的顿挫,曲折,盘旋,往复,疏荡,聚散式的运动,紧密地回应着瞬息间的情感跃动,进而对微妙而不易观察的心灵过程进行描述,抵达到高度抽象的状态。刘锋植怀着颗充满激情和人文关怀的心灵来面对现实世界,在对外在世界的诗意性拆解与组合中,暗示了他对人们生存状态的深深思索。   

    他的个人展览包括:刘锋植(艺·凯旋画廊,北京,2019)、刘锋植个人作品上海展(子桐画廊,上海,2012)、危情——刘锋植作品展(中国炎黄美术馆,北京,2002),等。

Liu Fengzhi

 

Artist: Liu Fengzhi

Duration: Sep. 8th– Oct. 13th, 2019

Reception: 16:00Sep. 8th, 2019

Venue: Triumph Gallery


 

Triumph Gallery is pleased to present the eponymous solo exhibition of Liu Fengzhi at the 798 Art District on September 8, 2019. A series of works from the 1990s to 2015 will be presented, including more than 50 works of portraits, still lifes and landscapes, constituting a review of Liu Fengzhi’s creative career.

Born in Harbin in 1964, Liu Fengzhi graduated from the Fine Arts Department of Harbin Normal University. His school days witnessed the inception of reform and opening up and the subsequent availability of Western modern art in China, of which post-Impressionism and expressionism had a great impact on Liu Fengzhi. After a period of imitation of the post-Impressionist style, Liu Fengzhi began to establish his unique approach in his works after 1995: his bold use of saturated colors is balanced under the 

 

 

control of the black hue, which also allows he lines to stand out. His lines appear as outlines sometimes; other times they run independently, floating and moving on the image, as if it is a psychological trajectory of an emotion, forming a most vivid and expressive part of the painting. His dedication to the expressive style and individual temperament, his unrestrained writing-like brushstrokes, and his repeated motifs of his signature theme, complete with childish graffiti and willful imagination, have always impressed us.

Due to limited volume of the exhibition, Liu Fengzhi’s nearly three decades of art career may not be revealed to the full. However, his works will continually be presented by Triumph Gallery in the next few years through exhibitions of review and research, as a window for collectors and art lovers to get to know more about this distinctive artist.

His works have been widely collected by collectors around the world. Whether it is landscape painting or portrait, Liu Fengzhi's works contain strong subjectivity and emotional features. With free and loose brushstrokes and lines, he pulls away the original volume of the object, especially with the help of lines that twists, turns, hovers, reciprocates, sways, and gathers, closely responding to the transient emotional changes. He further presents and delineates the subtle and unobservable mental process, in which, reaching a highly abstract state. Liu Fengzhi faces the real world with a heart full of passion and humanistic care. In the poetic dismantling and combination of the external world, it hints at his deep reflection on the living conditions of human beings.
