展览 Exhibition-怀斯 与我们有关 Andrew Wyeth in China

1

 

于2012年4月14日—5月12日举办的安德鲁·怀斯作品展,是元·空间举行的首个展览。之所以选择怀斯,是因为他与中国艺术界密不可分的关系。

上世纪80年代,作为少数被中国艺术界推广的艺术家之一,安德鲁·怀斯的作品图片出现在当时的各种艺术画报上。他的风格并不同于当时流行的苏联写实画派,以一种稳定、静谧、荒凉的风格呈现出自我、冷静、孤独的个体精神世界。这种不为世人影响的艺术品格为求知若渴的年轻中国画家们打开了世界的另一扇窗。当时尚在学习的他们被深深打动,正待形成的风格多多少少都受到了怀斯的影响,并通过各自的模仿和解读,用作品向这位大师致敬。

遗憾的是,包括这些艺术家在内的观众都没有机会全面而彻底地欣赏安德鲁·怀斯的真迹,此前怀斯只有三幅作品以群展的形式来到过中国。而本次我们精选了他的38幅作品,几乎囊括了其各个时期的手法和风格。希望本次展览不仅成为一场难忘的视觉旅行,也成为中国艺术界回溯最初激情的一次精神聚会。

Andrew Wyeth in China

The Andrew Wyeth Retrospective (collection) from 14th,April to 12th, May will be the first exhibition presented by YUAN space. His works was chosen, because of his close relationship with the Chinese art scene.

In 1980s, the works of Andrew Wyeth, being one of the first well-know names in contemporary art, could already be seen on a variety of art publications. Different from the Soviet realists, his works demonstrate the self-consciousness, calmness and solitudes of an individual mind with a stroke of stability, tranquility and desolation. The unique style and quality in his works opened a door for the Chinese artists, who are just getting to see the world of art, and left influences in their un-established style and personalities. Through imitation and interpretation, they paid tribute to the master with their own works.

Unfortunately, Chinese gallery-goers haven’t got the opportunities to appreciate the oeuvre of Andrew Wyeth thoroughly in person. Only three of Wyeth’s works had ever been exhibited in China. This time, we selected 38 pieces of Wyeth’s works, which virtually demonstrates his different approaches and style of different creative periods, in hope that this exhibition will not only be a memorable visual experience but also initiate a retrospection of the original passions in Chinese art scene.
