    前波畫廊

  • 前波畫廊誠摯的邀請您欣賞於2009年8月27日至10月8日期間在前波畫廊北京空間舉行的《東西——郭鴻蔚新作展》。

    郭鴻蔚生於1982年,他對繪畫語言及媒介的無限可能性充滿迷戀,並偏執的以此抵制著同輩對他某些表面化的理解。因此他在北京前波所展的新作向我們顯示了其作品充滿活力的實踐成果以及與中國當代繪畫間並未減少的諸多關聯。

    是展中的作品都因其系列性而特點突出。其中的第一個系列是由一組大幅的紙上水彩作品組成,這些作品能勾起每個人對其家庭相冊中童年的隱秘回憶的閃回。這些斑駁如漬的童年記憶撲面而來,但某種程度卻又巧妙地因其表像化的痕跡感而使人感到漠不動情的客觀和冷靜。

    展覽中的第二個系列同時包括油畫及水彩,在這組作品中他繼續延續和發展他那斑駁而沒有筆觸的方法,並將主題轉向靜物。在這些作品中,他以出人意料的的視角觀看和描繪著那些日常的“東西”,那些課椅,那些牙刷,那些紙杯以及那些仙人掌。這裡,他又一次成功賦予了那些簡單之物以活潑的敏感,還有一種有力的直率。

    我們還將看到,能夠解讀他這些新作內在聯繫的關鍵之匙是另外一些作品。首先是一張描繪空房間一角的燈光與距離的水彩作品,其次是一組看起來是在對於頭骨進行某種研究的油畫作品。這些作品和藝術家近來在老家四川休養和重新思考工作的那段假期有著清晰的聯繫。這段時間裡他讓自己沉於對生活的凝思並對臨近周遭現實開始不能自已的重新審視。這樣的結果是一種充分從這些瑣碎的“東西”中獲得靈感的本領,同時能將一種不可否認的內在物及重要性注進其內,將這些“東西”浸染通透。

    前波畫廊一直致力於支持並推廣郭鴻蔚的藝術。除了當前個展以外,前波畫廊還於2008年在其北京的空間策劃的年輕藝術家群展《Blog It: New Wave of New Wave》中展出過郭鴻蔚的一系列作品。我們也於2009年香港國際藝術展對其水彩作品進行了集中的展示,並得到了非常良好的公眾反映。如欲觀看展覽或對藝術家進行採訪請聯繫我們:

    Things
    New Works by Guo Hongwei
    Exhibition Dates: August 27- October 8, 2009

    Chambers Fine Art cordially invites you to preview Things - Hong Guowei’s New Works.

    Born only in 1982, Guo Hongwei somehow defies the expectations of his generation in his fascination with the endless possibilities of the medium of painting. For this reason his work demonstrates to us at Chambers the undiminished relevance and vibrancy of the practice of painting in China today.

    Things - Guo Hongwei’s New Works features a sequence of recent works. The first series is made up of large-format watercolor works on paper that evoke a private family photograph album. These blotched childhood memories are poignant but somehow remain skillfully unsentimental.

    The second series in the show includes oil and watercolor works in which Guo Hongwei has further developed his blurring painterly style but with a new direction in subject matter. Here, he depicts everyday objects such as chairs, toothbrushes, paper cups and cacti often viewed from unexpected angles. In these works he again succeeds in endowing these everyday subjects with youthful tenderness as well as a kind of energetic directness.

    For us, the key that unlocks the narrative within Things - Guo Hongwei’s New Works lies in a further set of works included in the show. The first is a simple watercolor on paper showing the corner of an empty room and the second is a series of studies of human skulls. These works clearly refer to period of regeneration and recuperation that the artist recently spent in his native Sichuan. A time during which he allowed himself to engage in a contemplation of life and a compulsive observing and re-viewing of his immediate surroundings. The result of this is, we believe, a capacity to experience fully these everyday subjects and to imbue them with an undeniable presence, meaning and importance.


    Chambers Fine Art is committed to supporting and developing Guo Hongwei’s work. In addition to the current solo exhibition, Chambers included works by the artist in the 2008 Beijing group exhibition Blog It: New Wave of New Wave. We also presented a strong showing of his work at Art Hong Kong Art 2009 which met with a very favorable response from the public.
