流光‧佳媛—王意評個展

專攻工筆仕女畫的王意評,自2017年初首次舉辦「意態淑真」個展後,立即吸引學界及當代水墨市場各方的注意,不僅以新人之姿在銷售上奪得亮眼成績,在其細膩筆法中更被直指為揉合且可上溯至中國與台灣代表性藝術家的傳統。如中央大學藝術學研究所周芳美教授,便指出王意評實則兼容郎世寧和陳進的風格,在技法上兼具西方訓練與中國畫意,在背景細節的元素上則細細雕琢與考究,顯示時代的生活情境與流行風格,重現出迥異於近世藝壇繁瑣喧嘩的靜謐美好情調。

睽違兩年,王意評將在眾所期待下以「流光‧佳媛」為題呈現近20件全新精彩力作。每日辛勤埋首於創作的王意評,幾乎以繪畫作為生活的日常,在工筆的日益成熟之下,線描、勾勒、渲染等繪畫技巧已非單純的表現,對王意評而言,更是藉以依憑尋覓、紀錄生命流光的方式。或輕或重、或急或徐、或濃妝或淡抹,皆用來展現生活中那些值得品味的美好感受。

原本即留心於傳統服飾與東方女性韻味美感的王意評,在此次個展所推出的新作圖像中,縱是與中國傳統文化不甚接觸的人士觀之,亦足散發濃郁的東方韻味。偶然一瞥,即可窺見其雅致氛圍;再三品賞之後,更加彰顯另一番根植於傳統的美感。

在當代資本主義與消費文化的縱欲橫流下,平淡天真的美學幾乎被各式炫麗奪目的新興媒體取而代之,如閒雲野鶴般的從容生活幾乎對當代城市的繁忙居住者也已不再復見,只能以心境遙想神遊。然而在王意評的筆墨世界中,卻能推促觀者進入另一個靜謐莊園,重返古典美的歷程。作品中表徵優雅的畫面,實則散發閒致的恬靜。圖像內信手捻來,便可錯落成片刻永恆的清秀剪影,那種內斂而不逾矩的愉悅神情也躍然於紙上,呼之欲出,幾成反視端詳中國仕女的現代美典。

王意評善融、善體古典工筆仕女的技藝與感知,透過其敏銳的創作思維,構造呈現出既蘊含傳統書畫形式與風格、又兼具抒情謙牧氣息與氛圍的作品,往往能將觀者再度拉回古典的脈絡中審視、感受東方的美學。

各具娉婷體態與姿勢的作品圖像中,王意評總能維持古典且富時代元素的美感,特別是典雅端莊的女性圖像,幾乎成為其須臾不離的題材,既為其創作閃現的靈光,亦為其藝術表現之流光。此次,大觀藝術空間將於12月22日正式推出「流光‧佳媛─王意評個展」,並於當日下午三點舉辦開幕茶會,敬邀諸位雅好藝術的嘉賓蒞臨參與。

Graciousness‧Belle Demoiselle – Wang Yi-Ping Solo Exhibition

Ever since her first solo exhibition “Lady Painting” in 2017, meticulous figure painter Wang Yi-Ping has captured the attention of scholars and contemporary ink art collectors, for her detail oriented techniques can be traced back to the traditional methods used by renowned artists from China and Taiwan. As Professor Chou Fan-Mei from the Institute of Art Studies, National Central University points out, Wang has taken inspiration from Giuseppe Castiglione and Chen Chin, combining western trainings in drawing and Chinese painterly compositions into her works. The detailed backgrounds refer to the style of living and fashion of the times which the paintings are set in, the sense of nostalgia and solitude make the works stand out in the hustle bustle of contemporary life.

The highly anticipated exhibition “Graciousness‧Belle Demoiselle” brings nearly twenty new works produced in the past two years by Wang Yi-Ping, whose life circles around her paintings. Wang sees painting as a way of recording of the pass of time, and the documentation of her own life. Her maturity in the techniques are clearly visible in her most recent works, and each stroke and each line can be seen as a record of the artist’s feelings toward life.

Wang Yi-Ping has always shown an interest in traditional Chinese and eastern style fashion, and such enthusiasm is even visible to those are not familiar with traditional Chinese culture. Its elegance can easily be sensed at first glance, and the paintings certainly deserve long term appreciation.

We live in a time of capitalism and consumer culture, where aesthetics is strongly affected by the splendour of new media, and the simplicity of a quiet and undisturbed life is no longer available to us. Wang Yi-Ping invites the viewers to the tranquility of her painted world, where one could enjoy the sereneness and calmness that lacks in reality.

Wang’s application of conventional Chinese calligraphy and painting techniques in her paintings also indicate her ability in the portrayal of classical beauties and her sensible aesthetics in the creation of atmospheric compositions. These merits inspire the spectators to appreciate the picturesqueness of Chinese art.

Celebrated for her elegant female figure paintings, Wang Yi-Ping continues to combine classical elements with contemporary aesthetics. We would like to invite you to the opening reception of Yi-Ping’s solo exhibition “Graciousness‧Belle Demoiselle” in Daguan Gallery at 3pm on Saturday 22 December 2018, where you shall be greeted by her gracious paintings.
