种人之一

油画、综合材料 240x240cm

《种人》 我在画面中尝试加入了有生命力的材料,骨胶、虫胶、蜂蜡、树枝等等,另外还有不同的翻模制作的人身体的部分。就像在画面上做炼金术实验,我希望画面在观众眼前是真实有生命力的,而不是暂停的。画面中人的个性和观众自己的个性息息相关。

《种人》是系列作品,每张画面上所挂的材料不一样,表达的内容也不一样。现实当中炼金术肯定是没有结果的,但是在画面中,我希望观众能在悬挂的材料和画面内容之间,找到画面中人的性格,这个性格是画面中人的,也是受到悬挂物的启发而显现出的观众自己心中的个性。

我在说现在发生的事.

我们活在一个碎片拼成的世界里。你在看展览或者买着股票,地球的另一边却在发生游行或者武装动乱。当今社会无法找到一个类似“二战”“和平年代”这样的字眼来当名片,而更像是一个贴满便签儿的电视正在滚动播放着新闻。就像福柯所述的异托帮一样。所以我只能说现在发生的,希望现在之后的人都能听。

Plant human No.1

paintingcomprehensive materials, 240x240cm.

Some vigorous materials have been added into the tableau, which could be the icon of life to some extent, including osseocolla, shellac, and beeswax. Besides, the Silica gel-molded human body parts also implied the life, which consistent to the theme of the painting. Just like the alchemist’s experiment on the painting, I presumed the presented tableau could convey the dynamic and real concept, not the opposite. The painting was more than a work; it could mirror the character of the individuals who stood in front of it.

"Planting human" is a series, each work of the series expressed diversified prospect by using different materials. The alchemists never existed, but the communication between the character in the canvases and audiences in front of the individual artworks is really happening and will have chemistry.

We are in the world, which made up by a lot of different fragment. We are drinking coffee, while talking about art in gallery, on the other side of the world is suffering in a war or strike. There is not a signature like “The second war” or” Baroque” for this period, but always showing news on TV and pasted full of tags on it. It is like a “heterotopias” as Foucault said: ‘ I’m trying to talk what I see and feel about this time by art, let spectator read.’
