    Bruce Rubenstein

  • 正如魯賓斯坦傾盡體力的作畫方式,他在化身既是遊樂場、也是競技場的畫布中反覆進出,身體也在『以繪畫渴望驗證個體存在』的強烈意志驅動下不斷移動,將沿襲自美術史的構圖分拆成不同的能量源流。他的藝術創作是一場永不止息的激烈搏鬥,也是在紛亂中不斷回到創作初心的歡躍與嬉戲。』


    清風藝廊 2023年10月7日–12月24 日推出「The Playground: Bruce Rubenstein」,以《遊樂場》為題,傳達首次來台個展的美國藝術家布魯斯 ‧ 魯賓斯坦奔放鮮明的繪畫風格,及其作品背後受到濃烈的“表達”及“嬉戲”驅動的狂熱能量。

    紐約上世紀中期的「抽象表現主義」 (Abstract Expressionism)、畢卡索簡潔明亮的繪畫探索階段「綜合立體主義」(Synthetic Cubism)、以及藝術家個人充滿故事性的生命敘事——這些關鍵性的養分多元兼容、影響互融,共同構成魯賓斯坦的創作特徵。

    魯賓斯坦的藝術實踐基於創作的過程,他鄙棄封閉式的畫室,改而將戶外空間轉化為暢快淋漓地釋放內心無意識的開放性創作場域:一如抽象表現主義先鋒傑克森.帕洛克 (Jackson Pollock) 將畫布轉化為即興 、動感、技巧自由的“行動繪畫”表演場域,魯賓斯坦強調只在粗糙的原始畫布上作畫,再任其“紐約血統”自然主宰,爆發出宛若“骯髒的紐約人行道”般粗獷不羈的圖層與質地。粗糙畫布和畫家人物性格的創造力與真實性完美糅雜,揮灑流淌的顏料因而成為偶然性和記憶的象徵性導體,在藝術家的個人生命史、與濃墨重彩的藝術史之間不斷交替。

    「The Playground」呈現魯賓斯坦四十年來創作脈絡演變,囊括其四大系列的巨幅畫作共18 件。

    "As Bruce Rubenstein dedicates his energy to the creative process, he continually traverses the canvas, which serves as both a playground and an arena. Fueled by a powerful determination to 'validate individual existence through art,' his body remains in constant motion. He deconstructs compositional elements borrowed from art history into distinct sources of energy. His artistic journey is a persistent and passionate struggle, a joyful and playful return to the core essence of creation amidst the chaos."
    Mr. Wing Gallery presents "The Playground: Bruce Rubenstein" from October 7th to December 24th, 2023, centered around the theme of "The Playground." This exhibition marks the debut solo show in Taiwan for the American artist Bruce Rubenstein, renowned for his vibrant and distinctive painting style driven by intense expressions and a sense of playfulness.
    Drawing inspiration from the pivotal influences of mid-20th-century New York Abstract Expressionism, Picasso's dynamic explorations in Synthetic Cubism, and the artist's own compelling life narrative, these diverse yet harmonious elements serve as the underpinnings of Rubenstein's unique artistic style.
    Rubenstein's artistic practice finds its roots in the act of creation itself. He shuns the confines of a secluded studio, opting instead to transform outdoor spaces into expansive and liberating arenas for the uninhibited release of his creative subconscious. Much like the Abstract Expressionism pioneer Jackson Pollock transformed the canvas into a platform for improvisation, motion, and unrestricted technique, Rubenstein places emphasis on working exclusively on rugged, unprocessed canvases, allowing the intrinsic 'New York bloodline' to dictate the outcome. This approach results in layers and textures reminiscent of the gritty sidewalks of New York City, where the canvas's roughness harmoniously merges with the artist's inherent creativity and authenticity. The flowing pigments symbolize both the conduit of chance and the vessel of memory, continually oscillating between the artist's personal life narrative and the rich tapestry of art history.
    "The Playground" presents an evolution of Rubenstein's artistic journey spanning four decades, featuring 18 large-scale artworks from his four major series.
