Xia Peng: 别担心, 都会好的 Es fügt sich!

在2015年我们推荐夏鹏的作品时,我们及柏林的观众都被他自然轻松的在繁简之间自由穿梭的绘画所吸引。不只是画面的“松”,更让人玩味的是品味、意趣的“松”,“松动”却有张力和有韧性。在2017年的新作品中,夏鹏没有给作品附加过多的主观意图,仅着意于在稀薄的色彩和寂静中结成的各种过去与现在的关系。没有结构却有旋律,从一处到虚无再到无穷,这或就是他追求的方向。单色,模糊的形象和块面,不知是在拼出图像还是在拆解图像。此次展览将含括13件布面作品及8件水墨作品及部分版画。


When we last showcased Xia Peng’s works in 2015, the Berlin public shared our appreciation for the way his paintings comfortably alternate between the involved and the minimal. Not just a sense of compositional looseness, but loosely tight and nimble in terms of their sensibility and taste. The new works you now see from 2017 have not been imbued with too much subjective intent; they aim only to thread together various pasts and presents through their spare colours and solitude. Eschewing structure for melody, moving from the local to the void to the infinite, this is the direction Xia Peng invites us to go in. The monochrome and opaque images and segments are as likely to be a collage as they are a deconstructed image. The exhibition comprises 13 works on canvas, 8 in ink, and various block prints.
