Water and Color: Contemporary Ink Art Show 水色

02/25/2009

Curated by Zhang Zhaohui, the exhibition "Water and Color: Contemporary Ink Art Show" was held in Today Art Museum from 11th to 23rd last month. Participating Artists include: He Jian,Hu Youben,Lei Ziren,Li Geye,Li Huasheng,Li Tingting Lu Jun,Lv Peng,Peng Wei,Wei Ligang,Wei Qingji,Xu Hualing Xu Xianglin,Zhang Yu, and Zhu Wei. 由张朝晖策展的展览《水色》上月11日至23日在今日美术馆举办。参展艺术家包括何剑,胡又笨,雷子人,李戈晔,李华生,李婷婷,陆军,吕鹏,彭薇,魏立刚,魏青吉,徐华翎,徐香林,张羽,朱伟。

"We can say, Zhu Wei is the first artist who brought Chinese traditional meticulous brushwork into Chinese contemporary art. He indulges himself freely in Chinese painting, prints and sculptures. Even fifteen years ago, when many Chinese artists adopted oil painting to their “Political Pop” or “Cynical Realism” works, Zhu had began his exploration on the possibility of using traditional media to express contemporary political life. The representative “Utopia” series was created during that period. Zhu was born in 1960’ in a PLA family in Beijing. His works reflect the artist’s intensive thinking over the topic of humanity in the political torrent. Although these contemporary topics make the appearance of his works far away from the traditional Chinese paintings, they still keep the characteristics and standards, such as the techniques of outlining, coloring and shading. It is the contrast between his traditional artistic language and the contemporary political view that makes his works so attractive and irresistible."---by curator Zhang Zhaohui. “可以说,朱伟是第一位将工笔画手法引进中国当代艺术领域的艺术家。他在水墨、版画、雕塑等领域都有不俗的表现。尤其是在十五年前,当大量的中国新锐艺术家用油画来做“政治波普”和“讽刺现实主义”作品时,他便开始探索传统的工笔画来表现当代中国的政治生活的可能性,完成了有代表性的作品《乌托邦系列》。他的作品反映了他作为六十年代出生于北京的军人家庭背景下成长起来的艺术家对政治激流中的人性的思考。他的作品已经与传统的工笔水墨画产生了巨大的差距,但在设色、勾勒、晕染等技术层面保持了基本的特征。他作品的传统语言与当代政治生活图景之间的反差使作品获得了难以抗拒的吸引力。”---策展人张朝晖
