一筆一劃,字斟句酌,凝視陳穎的畫作,傾刻陷入冷漠詭譎的擬像真實。

這位出身於以「傷痕美學」著稱的四川美院的藝術家,對藝術的喜愛啟蒙於擔任國小美術教師的父親,在未踏上專業的藝術之路前,陳穎曾做過內燃機車的製圖,培養出一絲不苟的機械式精確態度,為超寫實畫風奠定深厚功力。

在開始藝術創作後,陳穎挪用了「擬像」的概念,藉由塑料模特、玩偶和人工製品這些要素,塑形一個個在現實想像中可以觸及,視覺感受下超越真實的超寫實景觀。

「人偶」是陳穎作品的關鍵詞,當代超寫實主義對象多為人像,陳穎則以人偶為指涉的對象,進一步深化了虛/實的轉換。精緻細膩的外型、過份旳妝點,卻常以支離的姿態顯現,陳穎並無意化解不安與驚悚,在精煉的超寫實技法外,更有的是凸顯當代人在堆積的華麗外表下內在的不完整與破碎。

陳穎的畫作封住了某個流逝的時光,所描繪的是最寫實的具象,醞釀的疏離與專注不斷烘然而出。 細膩的筆觸、獨特冷調的光影,構築出一幅幅由人類的消費性商品所呈現的物質系統,熟悉卻已殘破,模糊地喚起曾經擁有的歡樂與不斷消費背後的匱乏寂寥感。

今夏陳穎再度訪台,將於秋刀魚藝術中心舉行個展,機不可失,歡迎暫時抽離現實,目睹陳穎的「人造景觀」!

 

CHEN Ying graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute that is known for “trauma aesthetics”. Because he had been an automobile draftsman, Chen Ying cultivates mechanical precise attitude and masterly ability of realistic manner.

“Doll” is the key word of CHEN Ying’s works. It is different from that most objects of contemporary Hyperrealism are portraits, but CHEN Ying uses dolls as denotation object. He molds hyper realistic spectacles seem can be touched in real with some elements, plastic models, dolls and artifacts. That further deepens conversion between false and true.

His objects appear delicate figures appearance and excessive dressing, but with fragmented postures. CHEN Ying has no intention to resolve the uneasy and horror emotion. His works present a material system by humans' consumer goods with his exquisite strokes, unique cool colors and masterly hyperrealism skill. It indicates not only modern men’s incomplete and fragmented inner world under gorgeous appearance, but also our loneliness behind continued consumption.
