散步并不是为了顿悟

文/刘懿萱


或因具象绘画看上去“保守”的特质造就了何种情绪,怀旧感看上去无可避免地出现在我画中。带着说不清楚的偏执,而且可能会持续很长时间。

近作视角从物象过度到追求刻意感的人造景,围绕刻意的造景展开。我们观看习惯所造就的审美取向形成诸多观看“制式”,这在老画报、老照片等旧图像上显得朴素和清晰。用绘画手段刻意打破这些习惯往往显得徒劳。我更倾向对所谓“制式”进行集体戏仿,做出可能的偏离,获得一定程度异样感。


旧时风格物与人都表现出不合时宜的优雅,是认真的闲适。《女神》中带有旧时记忆样式的公园雕塑气质徘徊在亲疏间,对我来说有种过气美感。另一面,通过元素重复组成绘画,只保留部分符号属性,试图削弱图像组合带来的叙事性,从而呈现片面的造景感。正如观看记忆往往也是断续和零散,常不具有丰富的逻辑细节,与片面的造景形成互文,是“不深刻”的隐喻。


与怀旧大概率的伤感相比,我情愿绘画带有轻微享乐倾向,从而实现“不深刻”的表达,这是一种朴素的常态。就像逛公园,散步并不是为了顿悟。


Visiting A Park is not Searching for An Epiphany

Author/Yixuan Liu


Maybe because the "cliche" of figurative painting created some kind of emotion to me, nostalgia becomes an inevitable element in my paintings, with a paranoid unclear, and may last a long time.

My recent works shift from still life to creating artificial landscapes that have a sense of deliberation. The aesthetic orientation created by our viewing habits has resulted in a lot of "standards of looking." Those standards are obvious and straightforward in old images such as old posters and photographs. It often seems futile to use painting to break these standards deliberately. I am more inclined to collectively parody those "standards of looking" make possible deviations and provoke a certain degree of strangeness.


Old things and people often have an out-dated elegance; it is serious leisure. In the painting "Goddess," the old-fashioned park sculpture has a quality of in-between familiar and unfamiliar, and it has a special kind of beauty for me. On the other hand, by repeating the elements in my composition, only some of the symbolic meaning is preserved, trying to weaken the narratives in my composition, thus presenting a one-sided sense of an artificial landscape. Just like memory is often intermittent and fragmented, often without rich logical details, these one-sided landscapes co-responding with memory, becomes a metaphor of "not profound."

Compared to the sadness that nostalgia usually brings, I prefer painting with a slight enjoyment tendency to achieve the "not profound" expression, which is simple normality. Just like visiting a park, it is not searching for an epiphany.
