Each Modern亞紀畫廊很榮幸宣布參展2019年上海西岸藝術與設計博覽會,展出的藝術家有中國當代藝術家尹朝陽、旅美台灣畫家陳昭宏、台灣年輕藝術家曾建穎與吳美琪、日本物派代表藝術家菅木志雄與攝影大師須田一政,從繪畫到攝影,一同展現本次展覽主題「水」與「人」的不同形態。

中國藝術家尹朝陽(1970生於南陽)知名於他厚重的油彩繪畫,以當代抽象技法再現中國山水風景。本次畫作在展位中以小個展形式分隔展出,大膽的用色與筆刷中展現對風景的描繪,兩件今年的新作用色明顯直接而不失壯麗山水的詩意。許炯(1983 年生於杭州)熟練於水墨書法技巧,發展至抽象的塗鴉、字體當代表述,2019年自畫像系列回看了自身的身份,透過舊作與新作共構出壓克力顏料複合媒材。

長期旅美的台灣畫家陳昭宏(1942年生於宜蘭)擅長透過獨創一格的手法描繪人物,所繪之神情與姿態在寫實與超現實間遊走,後發展出照相寫實畫作而知名於歐美。台灣年輕藝術家曾建穎(1987年生於南投)沿襲傳統的繪畫風格,將生活中所見的人與景在紙上細膩地利用墨、礦物顏料、銀箔等材料描繪。在帶有山水畫筆觸的背景中,有著詭譎表情或姿態的人物在河川之前、或在海底矗立,都是藝術家對於自身身份的叛逆反思。另一位台灣年輕藝術家吳美琪(1989年生於台南)則專注於攝影創作,透過近距離的擺拍創造出物件的超現實姿態。最新攝影系列YXX將日常物件透過同色調的聚集營造出亮麗奪目的畫面,甚或一片藍色海洋的幻覺。

日本物派於60年代末至70年代初興起,而代表人物之一的菅木志雄(1944年出生於盛岡)透過對於物與空間的持續觀察,以幾近物的原貌擺置著各式材料,刺激著物件、觀者、空間的交互存在關係。攝影大師須田一政(1940年出生於東京,2019年逝世)一生中極致地投入了攝影,不斷的紀錄生命中的巧妙時刻。Each Modern亞紀畫廊將於西岸藝術與設計博覽會中展出須田一政1970年代的黑白銀鹽照片原作—捕捉了這位攝影家觀看人與物在水岸邊、海邊、水中的各種姿態。

Each Modern is proud to announce its participation in the 2019 West Bund Art & Design fair in Shanghai. This year’s artists include Chinese contemporary painter Yin ZhaoYang, New York-based Taiwanese painter Chen Hilo, young Taiwanese artists Tseng ChienYing and Wu MeiChi, and from Japan, Mono-ha member Suga Kishio and master of photography, Suda Issei. Join us as we explore, through painting and photography, the various forms of this year’s theme, “Water and People.”

Chinese artist Yin ZhaoYang (born 1970 in Nanyang) is well-known for his thick oil paintings, recreating Chinese “shanshui” landscapes with contemporary abstract techniques. His works will be presented in a mini-solo exhibition to draw attention to his bold brush strokes and use of color. As seen in two new works painted this year, though direct, Yin’s use of color and technique are not lacking in poetic magnificence. Xu Jiong (Born 1983, Hangzhou, China) with his background in traditional Chinese ink painting and calligraphy, has developed an abstract and graffiti-like font style. In 2019, his series Self-Portrait reexamined his own identity through a composite of new and old works combined in acrylic and paint.

Having made his home in the United States for many decades, Taiwanese painter Chen Hilo (born 1942 in Yilan) utilizes a masterful technique in his figurative portraits, with attitudes and expressions that transcend their time and place. A key figure of photorealism and hyperrealism, his works are well known and can be found in numerous Western contemporary art institutions. Young Taiwanese artist Tseng ChienYing (born 1987 in Nantou) follows an Eastern traditional style of painting in creating living scenes with landscapes and figures on paper with delicate materials such as ink, mineral pigments and silver foil. On backgrounds of light and fluid landscapes, Tseng’s characters appear, with quixotic expressions beside rivers, or at the bottom of the sea, all of which are rebellious reflections of the artist’s identity. Another young Taiwanese artist Wu MeiChi (born 1989 in Tainan), creates surrealistic photographic of still life works through close-up shots. Her latest photography series, YXX, presents quotidian objects through powerful colors to create stunning views, or even the illusion of a blue ocean.

Japanese Mono-ha emerged in the late 1960s and 1970s. A principle member of this movement, Suga Kishio (born 1944 in Morioka), has continuously examined the nature of objects, placement, and space through his practice, utilizing various “mono” (things) his work reveals unseen interactions between objects, space, and viewer. Japanese master of photography, Suda Issei (1940-2019, born in Tokyo), devoted his life to his photography, constantly documenting the ingenious moments of his day-to-day. Each Modern will showcase a series of his original black and white silver gelatin photos from the 1970s at the West Bund Art & Design fair – sharing the photographer’s numerous documented gestures of his subjects on sandy beaches, by the sea, and in the water.
