大未來林舍畫廊於2023 Art Basel HK透過創作跨距百年的現當代藝術家吳大羽、陳蔭羆、陳界仁、申亮、趙趙，探討華人繪畫中寫意的表現與意在畫外的精神。華人的抽象繪畫中，總有一個現實的寫照，透過對現實事物的想像，創作出超越原先繪畫主題的界線，進而傳達意在畫外的精神，形成更富想像的精神意涵。趙趙更於大會主辦的Kabinett策展角落中帶來全新的概念性創作項目。畫廊以一貫「在地文化美學」觀點切入，提出華人藝術家對媒材的揀選、議題的關注，乃至對中國傳統文化題材的掌握與演繹。 Lin & Lin Gallery will present the works spanning more than a century by great artists Wu Da-Yu, George Chann, Chen Chieh-Jen, Shen Liang, and Zhao Zhao at 2023 Art Basel HK to delve into the expression of Chinese painting and the spirit beyond the painting. There is always a realistic portrayal in Chinese abstract painting. A boundary beyond the original subject matter is created through imagination of real objects to form a more spiritual implication. Zhao Zhao also introduces a new conceptual project in Kabinett, a curated presentation organized by Art Basel HK. Starting from the perspective of local cultural aesthetics, Lin & Lin presents the Chinese artists' selection of media, their attention to issues, and even their mastery and interpretation of traditional Chinese cultural themes. 采韻-20 Color Rhymes-20, 54.5x39 cm, 油彩‧畫布 Oil on canvas
Wu Da-Yu, the first generation of Chinese abstract painting representative, inspired an entire generation of Chinese artists. After he returned from France in 1922, Wu founded Hangzhou's National Academy of Art along with Lin Fengmian. His students include Wu Guanzhong, Zao Wou-Ki, Chu Teh-Chun and others. Many of his paintings depict casual subject matter seen in everyday life. He cleverly transforms concrete images with the momentum of Chinese brushwork, blending abstraction with the exquisite charm of Chinese culture. Wu creates impressions that resemble something without being literal. His wild brushstrokes and vivid colors form rhythmic spaces while delivering a spirit of natural harmony.
陳蔭羆 GEORGE CHANN
唐風今現 The Reappearance of Tang Wave, 1970s, 130x212.5 cm, 油彩‧拼貼‧畫布 Oil on canvas, collage
Chinese characters and ancient artefacts constitute the cultural basis of George Chann's art. Appearance in his work is inspired by the Chinese ritual bronzes, weathered ancient stone tablets, and Chinese characters. Chann creates rich layers and textures that confound the top and bottom, as well as the image and background, in his painting. He also manages to elevate his work to state of momentum that is purer, freer and more organic. Chann extracts the Eastern aesthetic spirit from a mixture of dots, lines and colors that suggests the annihilation of historical civilization.
陳界仁 CHEN CHIEH-JEN
在沒有世界的世界中- I In a World Losing Multiple Worlds I, 2022, 85x150 cm, 黑白照片‧典藏級相紙 b/w photo‧archival quality photo paper
In his recent works Envisioning Ephemerality, Star Chart, and A Field and Non-Field exploring the concepts of Śūnyatā and transformation, Chen Chieh-Jen imagines the production of images while waiting and watching how these images continually transform. Although these images are destined to be incomplete, perhaps their most beautiful manifestation will emerge at a certain point in this constant transformation, or perhaps some parts of them will persist into a distant future when the artist himself cannot see or even imagine them.
申亮 SHEN LIANG
2022 No.4, 2022, 216x157 cm, 丙烯‧油墨印刷‧紙 Acrylic, ink printing on paper
By painting and stacking, Shen Liang depicts everyday objects in a figurative way. His work embodies an aesthetic tradition of object as reality and is composed of depictions of red onions, sunflower seeds, garlic skins and butterflies, which are layered upon one another and positioned in a large and open background. With meticulous brushstrokes, he creates the rhythms and impressions of ink landscapes. Such momentum creates an atmosphere of life.
趙趙 ZHAO ZHAO
風景 Landscape, 2022, 156x128 cm, 油彩‧畫布 Oil on canvas
趙趙的作品中運用多種媒介對現實題材以及藝術形態進行轉換，藉由多元的面向，對照其融合傳統與當代的創作，梳理藝術中獨特的脈絡發展，揭示其置身於東西方之間的哲學思辨，及對自身文化血緣的尋源軌跡。此次Kabinett策展角落將呈現新作「風景」，作品表現出新疆及中亞的地理人文特色，畫面中猙獰的面容，扭曲的表現，晃動不安的身影，闡述了一種物是人非之感，呈現如同鬼魅般的殘影。Zhao Zhao uses a variety of media to transform realistic subject matters and artistic forms. From multiple perspectives, his paintings fusing traditional and contemporary elements will be compared, and the unique development of his art will be explored. Furthermore, Zhao’s philosophical thinking, which is positioned between East and West, will be examined, as will his connection to his own culture. This year, Kabinett, a curated project, will present his latest works Landscape, expressing the geographical and human characteristics of Xinjiang and Central Asia. His work illustrates a feeling about the past and the present that people have changed, but things have remained the same through the ferocious faces, distorted expressions and twisted bodies. A ghostly shadow thus is left in the painting.
