瑞莲 | 新生活融入自然

Guilin Path 《桂林田间路》Niamh Cunningham 70x70cm

瑞莲(Niamh Cunningham)最初关注蓝色与绿色的天地是在故乡爱尔兰,随后她追寻明艳动人的季节转换置身于生机勃勃的都市风光,再到色彩浓郁的布拉格森林,又到沙黄水蓝的迪拜。现在,她在中国这片土地上定居下来。从瑞莲所居住的首都北京,到中国腹地武陵山,到桂林,这些地方以令人沉醉的自然美景的特写镜头向她展示了中国独有的色调和特别的景致。

 

《拉伸》Niamh Cunningham 70 x70 cm

然而,对于身处21世纪的艺术家们来说,试图描绘任何风景都面临着不可避免的挑战。一方面,具有精细像素的数码成像巧妙地捕捉了各种自然景色;另一个极端是,大自然已经被严重毁坏损害,以致于失去原有的活力和色彩。瑞莲正在着手克服这些局限性,进行她自己的视觉制作。

Gulin Memory 《桂林记忆》Niamh Cunningham 90 x90 cm

2014年,瑞莲参加了在湖南省张家界举办的驻留写生项目,她在其中由Gordon Novak带领的工作坊里对单版画进行了尝试与探索。最近,单版画已经成为瑞莲新的绘画手段,既是在一定程度上暂时休整,也是在创作上独辟蹊径。尽管效果和技术各异,实际上单版画是所有印刻方法中最接近绘画风格的,或许可以这样说,单版画以其独特的半透明感成为展示大自然的理想形式。不用帆布,瑞莲开始在玻璃介质上上色描画,采用产自中国、韩国或者西方的水彩颜料,然后压在竹纤维和多种树纤维制造的各种宣纸上,形成单独的印图。为了让色彩能在纸上渗开,瑞莲巧妙使用了盐、溶剂和清洁剂,以适应玻璃画布的表面张力。画家解释道,“我感觉这种方式其实不适合展示紧密线条,反之,在相对柔和的薄层上作画,同一个场景可以呈现出一种新的不同的样子。

Jie Na’s sea 《那洁之海》 Niamh Cunningham 70x70cm

瑞莲将清新淡雅的色彩融入宣纸独有的光泽中,唤起我们对自然世界精致优美的记忆。她采用温暖的轮廓突出且有透明质感的色彩,从微观视角暗示花朵树木具有的简洁而又复杂的有机结构,这些都勾起我们对大自然奇迹的新的兴趣。她对自然景观的轮廓着色使我们能够辨别出画的是什么,与之同时,她在分子层面解构自然之美。非同寻常的视觉冲击力促使我们停下并思考这是什么美景,而这美丽今天以一种或另一种状态正存在于我们中间。

Support needed -differentiation《支持系统,加油》Niamh Cunningham 90x90cm

在瑞莲的许多画作中,通过在一侧保留白色宽边界显而易见地勾画出自然与科学的融合,仿佛景色停留在载玻片上;而在另一些画中,圆形的图案轻轻按压在宣纸正中,就好像生物实验室的样本正在等待显微镜下更仔细的观察。这些画提醒人们有机物质的复杂结构也是一种风景,它们具有令人惊叹不已的美丽,系统的组织结构,在全世界生命科学中扮演重要角色,这些画作充分传达出对于细胞风景全面重要性的关注。
