「(關於藝術)表現形式和當代性都很重要,當下發生,當下存在。...我不希望我的步伐太快而遺漏很多美好,我想保留自己生活裡的那種平衡、純淨、高貴和神秘,然後拼命的記錄下它,我必須要與這個虛無的世界有個對話。」 — 藝術家 陳承衛

陳承衛,1984年出生於中國浙江,中國當代青年寫實油畫家的代表人物,美國肖像畫協會會員,現今生活、創作於北京。作品效法荷蘭畫家林布蘭特等西方油畫藝術家,注重光線運用,以傳統的經典油畫技法,透過個人對於時代的感知,貼切地以戲劇性的方式來演繹,以一種真實與虛幻之間的距離感影射現代人各種心情與處境,賦予人們一種美的享受,一種追憶的美好。本次於「采泥藝術」舉辦的「存在與虛無」個展,藝術家以近年來的新作闡釋愛情在得失之間的虛幻與不可捉摸。展覽同名作品〈存在與虛無〉即是藝術家對於感情觀點的寫照,若有似無,看似真實卻又如幻境般的撲朔迷離。本展亦展出藝術家著名的「大民國」系列,如:〈遙夢幽蘭〉(Orchid in Dream)、〈信仰的指向〉(Pointing to the Belief)等作品表現陳承衛如何以精湛的光線及人物肢體表現方式,展現如戲劇般的視覺張力與神祕性。〈天意〉(Heavenly Will)、〈紅娘〉(Matchmaker)等作品則是藝術家以借景抒情的詩意手法影射對於愛情與婚姻的真實感懷。陳承衛精湛的畫藝將寫實主義與古典主義風格恰如其分的融合,一方面開括傳統寫實油畫的新創作表現形式,同時也以古喻今轉喻關於愛情與生活的抒懷,生活存在的現實性時而令人感到虛無,藝術刻畫的幻境則是一個可以隱身的片刻,期望與美好而得以有著延伸,無論是愛情,亦或是人生。

Being and Nothingness --The Solo Exhibition of CHEN Cheng-Wei

Date:2017.06.17-08.06
Opening: 6.24(Sat.) 15:00
Venue: Chini Gallery

[Regarding art], both the form of expression and contemporaneity are important. What happens presently exits in the moment. ... I do not hope to miss many beautiful things simply because the pace of life is too fast. I only want to keep that sense of balance, purity, nobleness, and mysteriousness in my life, and try my best to document it. I feel that I must create a dialogue with this world of nothingness.

— CHEN Cheng-Wei

CHEN Cheng-Wei was born in Zhejiang Province, China in 1984. A representative young painter of Chinese contemporary oil painting as well as a member of the Portrait Society of America, Chen now lives and works in Beijing. Following the example of Western classical oil painters, such as the Dutch oil master Rembrandt, Chen places an emphasis on the use of light. Through classical oil techniques and his personal sensibility and perception of our time, he precisely and dramatically interprets modern people's emotions and situations through a lens that integrates reality and illusion, offering his audience an aesthetic experience and a kind of nostalgic beauty. In Being and Nothingness, a new solo exhibition at Chini Gallery, the artist elaborates on the elusiveness and subtleness of romantic love through his recent paintings. On view in the exhibition, a painting sharing the exhibition title is a visual depiction of the artist's view on relationship, which portrays love's elusive existence posited between reality and fantasy. The exhibition also showcases Chen's famous The Republic of China series, including works like Orchid in Dream and Pointing to the Belief that demonstrate the artist's excellent manipulation of light, physical forms, and gestures to visualize dramatic tension and a sense of mystery. Other works like Heavenly Will and Matchmaker reveal how the artist uses visual scenes to poetically express his true feelings about relationship and marriage. Chen's outstanding artistry shows his precisely balanced integration of realism and the classical style. He expands the expression and form of traditional realistic oil painting in an innovative way while employing traditional and historic elements as metaphors to voice his reflections on love and life. The reality in life can sometimes fill one with a sense of nothingness. However, the illusory realm depicted in art affords us a momentary haven, where all expectations and fineness, be it in love or in life, never cease to exist.
