赋·调:涂曦个展 Polyphony:Tu Xi Solo Exhibition

2020.3.21—2020.4.19

艺术家:涂曦

展览时间:2020.3.21-4.19

展览地点:艺·凯旋画廊



我们很荣幸地宣布艺·凯旋画廊将于2020321日在798艺术区推出“赋调:涂曦个展”。此次艺术家个展将展出其近两年的最新作品,延续了对形状、色彩、材料、质感、肌理等绘画要素的坚持,试图营造出一个观众易于进入和感知的现实景观。

对于艺术家本人来说,创作灵感来源于物象的内涵,和图像的抽象因素。在创作过程中,拿捏这两者的平衡,并使之契合画面中各个单元和体系,这些一直都是艺术家思考沉淀的课题。

他的作品中无所谓观念,国际化的绘画语言记录着生存经历的体验和感悟,以及情感经历或映射境遇,期待观众从作品画面肌理、制作机制,图示安排中找到自身情绪的共振点,或者找到自己并偶遇画面中的那些“巧妙”地误读。

本次展出的作品题材以丛林为主,艺术家涂曦在创作时受到了梭罗《瓦尔登湖》一书的影响,希望回归自然,摆脱物欲与现实的干扰和腐蚀,探寻精神的本质追求,与中国古代文人卧游山水,以达精神自由的理想不谋而合。较之以往,本次展览出的新作体量更大,展示了艺术家在构图、内容、技法等一系列形式上的实验和探索,对空间境感的营造和质感肌理的注重使画面进一步升华。

形式的顺利嬗变并未使艺术家放松创作的警惕,涂曦一如既往地坚守着架上绘画的“温度”和“手感”,初心未变。

We are pleased to launch the upcoming Polyphony: Tu Xi Solo Exhibition at Triumph Gallery in 798 Art District on March 21, 2020. This exhibition showcases the artist’s latest works in the past two years and tries to create an accessible reality for viewers to perceive with continued focus on such painting elements as shape, color, material and texture.

The artist finds his source of inspiration in the connotation and abstractions of the image. It has long been the artist’s pursuit to balance these two aspects and align them with the various units and systems in the picture. The conceptual idea becomes irrelevant and his internationalized painting language documents only the experience, perceptions, feelings and life events. Viewers are expected to resonate with the texture, the mechanism, and the way the illustrations are arranged, find themselves in the paintings or even, stumble across 

the intriguing misinterpretation behind the image.

The woods-themed exhibition is inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, whose antipathy towards materialism and eroding reality and pursuit of nature and spirit go, unexpectedly, hand in hand with the ideal of ancient Chinese literati, who would roam in mountains and travel alongside rivers for spiritual freedom. This exhibition features a larger volume of new works revealing a string of formal explorations in composition, content and technique. His emphasis on the sense of spatial context and texture pushes the image to a higher level. 

At the meantime, formal transformations coexist with the temperature and texture of easel paintings, to which the artist adheres as vigilantly as always. His original intention remains unchanged.
