【新花樣 Flowers Nouveau】Kevin Woodson微型展覽


文宣-01.jpg

「新花樣 Flowers Nouveau」這系列作品希望承襲19世紀新藝術運動(Art Nouveau )的自由奔放與詩意,並擷取當代設計與古典神話的元素,以一種新的方式來表現花朵的無限與超然。多年來的寫生創作,我已把花朵視為一種心靈的象徵,而那些穿梭其間的魚兒飛鳥,對我以及對花而言,也都是珍貴的夥伴。
這次我也嘗試了新的媒材與畫紙,試圖呈現出不同的繪畫質地。希望您也能看見其中的詩意,享受花朵帶來的愛與生命。

In Flowers Nouveau I wanted to capture the freedom and poetry of the Art Nouveau movement of the 19th  Century in flowers. I chose this new direction in my paintings so I could include elements of today’s New Floral Design movement, and inspiration from myth. The flowers I paint in this series are absolutely unrestrained, breaking free of gravity and time to become part of a greater, transcendent garden. In fact, I feel that decades of painting flowers in gardens have taught me to see and paint the divine in my subject. I’m sure you’ll notice that so many of these paintings also include birds, fishes, and other hidden treasures that are the precious companions, both to me and the flowers. Because this is a new approach for me and for flower painting in general, I have chosen a fresh approach to present these multimedia paper paintings, varnishing the paper, but not covering it with glass or mat board. I hope you’ll enjoy the visual poetry in each painting and all the flowers that remind us of love and human potential every day.

Kevin Woodson

從加州灣區到世界各地,Kevin Woodson不斷創作許多生動的花卉作品。受到東方與西方藝術的啟發,Kevin不但追雖前輩畫家的足跡,更將傳統花卉賦予當代文化意象,並透過在自然中寫生,直接深入花朵稍縱即逝的熱情與寧靜。
「人類的文化、愛情與幻想,都誕生於花園。我的創作也起緣於花園、綠地、雲霧林間等所有花開之處。當彩筆落下紙上的那一刻,我試圖將人們短暫而燦爛的情感,凝聚在一朵花之中。我的人生走過深沉的失落與喜悅,我一直沒有放棄畫花。花是我的第一個記憶,兩歲時母親的後院,一切靈感就從那裡開始了。」
