白灼影像10月份第二场展览将带来另一位新西兰视觉艺术家哈米什·科尔曼的作品。科尔曼目前正于厦门进行为期3个月的驻地创作。此次展览将于10月21日下午4时开幕,从21日持续至31日,为期10天。

For the second exhibition of Ocotober, B-JOY IMAGE is pleased to have another visual artist from New Zealand, Hamish Coleman, who is currently staying in Xiamen for 3 months. The exhibition will last from the 21st to 31th of October, with an opening ceremony on Sunday the 21st Oct at 4pm.

科尔曼以其布面油画著称,他的油画作品来源于艺术家在网络上发现的音乐录像和微电影的截图。在厦门驻地期间,科尔曼继续聚焦绘画创作,并尝试将现成图像以石墨绘于宣纸上。

Coleman is known for his oil paintings on linen, which are created from screen-shots of music videos and short films discovered online. During his time in Xiamen Coleman has focussed on drawing, representing his found imagery in graphite on Chinese calligraphy paper.

“我的创作围绕图像的消失与显现。图像素材来自网络上找到影片截图,通过画笔与颜料的转化,它们摆脱了最初模糊而孤立的状态。我希望以此探索具象与抽象间的张力,同时让二者间的对话持续发生。原始的图像被超越了,而最终呈现的色彩与画面则挑战着具象绘画的独裁。”
——哈米什·科尔曼

‘I deal in the removal and representation of images. I search for screen captures of existing found film footage. In their original state these screen captures are blanketed in obscurity and isolation, but through a process of adaptation into drawings and paintings, these elements are elevated. This allows exploration of tensions that lie between figuration and abstraction, and sets up a continuous and ongoing dialogue between the two. The original image is transcended and it is the paint and surface that challenges the hierarchy of the figurative subject.’
— Hamish Coleman

 

 

艺术家自述:
ARTIST STATEMENT

此次白灼影像个展的作品将是我此前创作的延伸。我通过高清扫描技术,将在厦门创作的绘画转化成超大像素的图像,再将这些逼真的图像打印出来,涂上珠光水彩。我在新西兰惠灵顿的工作室中制作自己的珠光油彩,但此次我将尝试珠光水彩。

For my solo exhibition at B-JOY IMAGE, I have explored the technique of high-resolution scanning to create blow-up prints of drawings made in Xiamen. I have then applied pearlescent watercolor over these large photographic prints. This is an extension of my usual painting practice, as I make my own pearlescent oil paint in my Wellington studio.

“尘世”这个词最近引起了我的兴趣。“尘世”指的是人类生活的世界,而相对应的,则有一个“尘世”之上的、更高级的世界。字面上看,“尘世”还有“月亮之下”的意思。创作这批作品时,我突然想到自己的经历,从新西兰来到厦门,就像穿越到了另一个世界,正如这个词所描述的那样。这批作品的原始图像来自新西兰微电影中的镜头,或是凶猛的大火,或是平静的流水,或在游泳,或在洗手。这个词最早出现在古希腊天文学中,月亮与地球之间便是“月下世界”,其中有4种元素:土、水、气、火。而这些元素都出现在此次展出的作品中。“尘世”的中文翻译则为此次展览增加了另一层色彩。

Sublunary is a word I have become intrigued by recently. It is used to describe the mundane realism of the world we inhabit, as opposed to a superior reality beyond our own. It also means literally ‘beneath the moon’. Making these new painted drawings I have realized how much relevance this word has to my time here in Xiamen, as being here has felt like an alternate reality to my own reality back home. The subjects of these drawings are screenshots taken from New Zealand short films, they depict destructive fires and calm scenes of water, swimming and washing hands. Sublunary has its origins in Greek astronomy, the world between earth and the moon was known as the ‘Sublunary Sphere’ and consisted of the four classical elements: earth, water, air, and fire. My painted drawings depict of all of these. The Chinese translations of ‘Sublunary’ add another layer of interpretation to this exhibition.
