複數的吸引力-亞洲版畫聯展
文|含瑜

版畫的獨特之處在於其可複製性,通過不同形式的印刷手法可製作出多幅作品,將印刷工藝與作品內涵結合,並透過限定版數與藝術家的親筆簽名,以「限量發行」的方式確保作品的稀缺性和價值。雖然有時版畫發行的版數不多,然而比起世間僅有一張的原作繪畫,其複數的特性仍使得許多無緣相見的經典之作,更有機會親見其作品面貌。此外,複數發行使得單件售價較低,對年輕收藏家而言更易入手,複數的美學體驗得以輕巧地走進日常生活的一隅。
中國 / 流動的繪畫筆觸

趙無極的版畫作品展現出宏大抽象的世界,既像是東方神秘的山水,又像是西方抽象的繪畫,氣勢磅礡、流麗而動感,晚期作品更趨抽象,線條與姿態減少,用色沉穩,超現實的構圖有著模糊的空間感。他雖以繪畫聞名,亦有大量經典版畫作品,在版畫的製作方法上多所實驗與探索。

朱德群的石版畫同樣以抽象呈現,融合中國美學與西方抽象繪畫的精神,富音樂與律動,筆觸間內涵抒情與詩意,其簡化的元素、流暢的線條與濃烈的色彩,為畫面帶來豐富的對比與張力,明媚而抽象的風景,引人遐思。

丁雄泉的作品以裸女為題,用色大膽明快,女人與花間流動生艷的線條,瑰麗曼妙、迷情夢幻,他的世界充滿了誘惑、激情與絢麗之色。

台灣 / 朦朧安靜的風景

林壽宇的極簡主義作品,糅合西方抽象主義及傳統中國書畫,他以白色為作品的基調,巧妙地疊加出濃淡、輕重、比例各不相同的白色,畫面簡潔卻充滿力量,偶有黑、紅、濾色的細線與小方塊引入,給人夢境般朦朧而空靈的層次美感。靜謐的極簡畫面給人無限的想像。

楊炯杕的金屬蝕刻版畫以細緻的風景凝聚記憶中的場景印象,深刻長遠且寂靜的光影,如同心像顯影般,封印逝去的時間與心緒。兩位台灣藝術家的版畫以截然不同的方式,呈現細膩而安靜的風景。

日本 / 絢爛的奇幻遊樂園

日本六〇年代活躍的前衛藝術團體具體派,由吉原治良帶領年輕藝術家所組成,他們帶著自由與挑戰傳統的精神掀起創作的新浪潮,創作形式突破既有框架,除平面創作外,也有行為表演、大型裝置等。其中,元永定正為具體派的代表藝術家之一,在具體派解散後,仍秉持其精神持續創作。本次展出數件吉原治良與元永定正的作品,是為本次展覽的一大亮點。

吉原治良的作品大量實驗繪製各形各貌的「圓」,在有機的偶遇與幾何的控制之間,不斷以圓的形體發展各種變化,展現其獨特的個人氣質與方法,貫徹其創作的思想實踐。而元永定正的抽象作品則以鮮明躍動的色彩帶來各種趣味組合,自詡為「傻瓜派」的他,作品帶有些許傻氣與幽默,原始胚胎般的形狀及類卡通的形式,來自他對兒童藝術與日本漫畫的濃厚意趣,充滿可愛滑稽的玩耍氛圍。本次於弎畫展出多件作品,得以一覽其作品新鮮幽默的樂園氣氛。

橫尾忠則的平面設計作品總是以迷幻拼貼與繽紛強烈的備受矚目,神秘的超現實色彩架構出獨特的奇想世界。同樣橫跨設計與藝術的天明屋尚,其作品將日本文化歷史、美術史轉化為自己獨特的作品,複合刺青、宗教、機械、武器、浮世繪等元素,展現瘋狂且豪華絢爛的風格。五木田智央有別於其他展出的日本藝術家,近年來以黑白雙主色的鮮明畫風從事人像畫創作,雖然主題明確而具體,卻以極為抽象的手法呈現。

中田郁美溫暖柔和的細膩風格,描繪童年與青春記憶裡的純真與浪漫。下田光糖果般的明亮的畫風下,主題卻灰暗而憂鬱,建構一個可愛與恐怖共處的世界。

弎畫廊於本次的版畫展出,匯集中國、台灣與日本共十二位藝術家,涵納大師經典作品及年輕藝術家的創作,分別展現藝術家各色風格獨具的世界觀,以及其運用版畫媒材而展現的魅力。

The Appeal of Plurality -Asia Print Exhibition
The unique feature of printmaking is its reproducibility. Multiple works can be created through different printing methods. By combining the printing process and the meanings of the work, and through limited prints and the autograph of the artist, “limited releases” can ensure the rarity and value of the works. Although there are only few copies of some prints, compared to original paintings where there is only one piece in the world, the plurality of print creates more opportunities for many rare classics to be seen in their original form Furthermore, the release of multiple copies lowers the price of individual works, helping young collectors to include the art in their collections and bringing the aesthetics of prints into daily life with ease.

China / Flowing Brush Strokes

The prints of Zao Wou-Ki present a grand abstract world. They are reminiscent of both the mysterious Shan Shui paintings of the East and the abstract paintings of the West. The majestic nature of the prints creates a flowing and dynamic world. His later works are even more abstract. With fewer lines and postures, and more calm colors, his works create a vague sense of space with a surreal composition. Although he is famous for his paintings, Zao Wou-Ki has also created large amounts of classic prints. He has experimented with and explored several different printmaking methods.
The lithographic prints by Chu Teh-Chun are also abstract in nature. They incorporate Chinese aesthetics with Western abstract painting. The works are filled with music and rhythm, and each brush stroke is sensual and poetic. The simplified elements, flowing lines, and strong colors create contrast and tension in the images. The radiant and abstract landscapes invoke a sense of fascination.
The works of Walasse Ting are based on the naked female form and his use of color is bold and lively. The flowing and vibrant lines between the woman and flowers are magnificent, graceful, and filled with fantasy. His world is full of temptation, passion, and gorgeous colors.

Taiwan / Mysterious and Serene Landscapes
The minimalist works of Richard Lin are a combination of Western abstract art and traditional Chinese paintings. His works use white as the foundation and layers of whites with different shades, weights, and contrasts are added, providing a clean and powerful look. The black, red, and filtered lines and blocks create a dream-like and ethereal aesthetic. The serene minimalist images inspire unlimited imagination among the viewers.
The metal etchings of Yang Chiung-Ti recreate the scenes from his memory with delicate landscapes. The profound and peaceful lights and shadows represent the images in his mind, cementing times and emotions of the past. The prints of the two Taiwanese artists recreate delicate and peaceful landscapes through completely different methods.

Japan / Gorgeous Playground of Fantasies
Gutai, an avant-garde art group active in Japan in the 1960s, consisted of young artists led by Jiro Yoshihara. They created a new wave of art by freely challenging traditions. Their creativity shattered existing frameworks. Aside from graphic creations, they also conducted behavioral performances and designed large installations. Among them, Sadamasa Motonaga was one of the representative artists of Gutai. After Gutai was disbanded, he continued to uphold the creative spirit of the group. The exhibition contains several works by Jiro Yoshihara and Sadamasa Motonaga, which are highlights of the exhibition.
The works of Jiro Yoshihara experiment with various types of “circles”. With the contrast between organic creation and geometric control, he continuously developed various forms of circles, displaying his unique personal temperament and methods and incorporating his creative ideas. The abstract works of Sadamasa Motonaga create fun combinations of vibrant colors. As a member of the self-proclaimed “school of fools”, his works are silly and humorous. The primitive embryo-like shapes and cartoon-like forms come from his interest in children's art and Japanese manga, filling his works with a sense of playfulness. Several works are being exhibited in San Gallery during this exhibition. The viewers can enjoy the fresh and humorous character of his works.
The graphic designs of Tadanori Yokoo are always composed of psychedelic collages and vibrant, strong and attention-grabbing colors, which create an unique and magical world. Hisashi Tenmyouya, whose works span design and art, combines Japanese cultural history and art history into his own unique works, integrating elements from tattoos, religion, machinery, weapons, and Ukiyo-e. His works have a crazy and extravagant style. Tomoo Gokita is different from the other Japanese artists included in the exhibition. In recent years, he has been using a vibrant style based on black and white to create portraits. Although the theme is clear and specific, he presents the subject in an extremely abstract way.

Ikumi Nakada uses her gentle and delicate style to recreate the innocence and romance of memories from childhood and youth. Hikari Shimoda uses candy-like vibrant colors to depict grey and depressing themes, creating a cute but horrific world.
In this exhibition, San Gallery has gathered 12 artists from China, Taiwan, and Japan, covering the classic works of masters and the creations of young artists. The exhibition displays the various unique worldviews and styles of the artists and the charms of the print medium.
