上海大田秀则画廊很荣幸展出"纸上作品",展览以纸为共通媒介展示了四位艺术家玛丽亚·法拉、半田真规、久门刚史和唐狄鑫的作品。

玛丽亚·法拉(生于1988年)的色粉画充满了明亮多样的色彩。新冠疫情带给法拉新的机遇来重新探索她对色粉的热爱,尤其是色粉的易把控和颜色的纯粹。在封锁期间,她表示运用鲜亮的色粉是她对单调日常和消极思想的反抗。仔细观赏法拉的作品,会不经意掉进一个有趣且亦实亦虚的世界。沿路漫步过一排商店到烘焙店和书店,在大英博物馆的邂逅,浏览当地酒窖的精选葡萄酒,法拉给她的观者留下了意犹未尽的想象。

唐狄鑫(生于1982年)常常描画一群幽默滑稽又不着边际的人,暗示他们或许逊于野兽。在此次展览中,他继续以红蓝墨水有限的色调来探索人类的形态。红蓝交接的画作是他目前最大尺幅的纸上墨水作品。唐狄鑫直接用手指在纸上作画,这使他将软硬笔触与更高的即时性、控制力和对比度相结合。蓝色被选择作为底色,红色作为蓝色的对照色,并鲜明有力。仿佛咧嘴一笑的幽默面具,唐狄鑫用他的绘画描述了人类行为的二重性及矛盾。

运用对比色和多重线条,半田真规(生于1979年)创作了以大气、气候、心理地理学和短暂邂逅为灵感的形象化的风景画。半田的作品通常是大型的沉浸式装置,纸上作品是他艺术实践的延伸。采用油粉彩和生动丰富的水彩,半田在名为"amacyan gayacyan ittcyan buncyan minna nakayoshi"的作品中描绘了松树。松在日本文化中象征长寿、善良和美德,因此当人们从一定距离观看风景时,将感到慰藉与诚意。

此外,久门刚史(生于1982年)展示了一系列纸上作品。远看之下,作品呈现一片片单色和色彩渐变,越靠近越能洞悉他作品中的纷繁细节。"渐变 #4"系列由一连串连续螺旋延伸的π组成。π的连续性在久门添加墨水、不规则线条和形状后开始扭曲变形,在空间和永恒概念中唤起了细微的变化。时间与空间,在这些作品中同时坍塌和延续,他的诗情在简明的视觉构图中得以展现。

纸上作品虽常与习作或预备草图相联,上海大田秀则画廊欢迎你来探索这些有着独一无二分量的作品。
Ota Fine Arts Shanghai is delighted to present "Works on Paper", an exhibition where paper is used as a common medium among four artists including Maria Farrar, Masanori Handa, Tsuyoshi Hisakado and Tang Dixin.

Maria Farrar's (b.1988) pastel drawings are imbued with bright and varied colors. The Covid-19 pandemic gave Farrar an opportunity to rediscover her love for pastels, in particular their ease of use and purity of colours. As lockdown restrictions prevail, she admits that her use of vibrant pastel colors is her form of protest against monotonous days and negative thinking. Pondering Farrar's work, one unknowingly slips into a playful world of seemingly real yet unreal settings. Leisurely days of walking down a row of shops to the bakery and bookstore, encounters at the British Museum, browsing through the wine selection at the local cellar, Farrar leaves her viewers wanting more of such imagery.

Tang Dixin (b. 1982) often depicts crowds of people in a humorous yet ruthless manner, hinting that they are perhaps inferior to beasts. For this exhibition, he continues to explore the human form with a limited palette of red and blue ink. The red and blue drawings are his largest ink on paper works till date. Tang has painted these works by applying ink directly onto paper with his fingers, which allows him to combine hard and soft strokes with greater immediacy, control and contrast. Blue was chosen as a background color and red was chosen for being opposite to blue, and it being a color with vitality. Like a grinning mask of humour, Tang illustrates the duality and contradictions found in human behavior.

With contrasting colours and multi-fold lines, Masanori Handa (b.1979) creates pictorial landscapes that are inspired by atmosphere, climate, psychogeography and fleeting encounters. While Handa is more commonly associated with large-scale immersive installations, these works on paper are an extension of his practice. With oil pastels and vibrant rich watercolours, Handa depicts the pine tree in "amacyan gayacyan ittcyan buncyan minna nakayoshi". Pine is known to represent longevity, goodness and virtue in Japanese culture, hence invoking feelings of goodwill and comfort as one views a landscape from a distance.

Elsewhere, Tsuyoshi Hisakado (b. 1981) showcases a series of works on paper. Appearing as blocks of monochrome and colour gradients from afar, the intricacies of his work are only revealed as one moves closer. The "Crossfades #4" series are composed of the π sequence extended across the sheet in a continuous spiral. The continuity of π is distorted when Hisakado adds ink, irregular lines and shapes to it, invoking subtle shifts in the concepts of space and eternity. Time and space, simultaneously collapse and continue in these works, revealing his poetic sensibilities through simple visual composition.

While works on paper can often be associated with study works or preparatory sketches, Ota Fine Arts Shanghai welcomes you to explore these works that hold a unique weight of their own.
