佩斯畫廊隆重呈現知名美國藝術家瑪麗· 闊思（Mary Corse ）於亞洲的首次展覽。在過去的五十年裡，瑪麗· 闊思的藝術實踐致力於探索感知、光的特質和抽象概念—— 通過對繪畫的創新，她對以光作為藝術的主題和媒介進行持續的探討。
Pace is honoured to present the first exhibition in Asia dedicated to renowned artist Mary Corse. Over the last five decades, Corse’s practice has investigated perception, properties of light and ideas of abstraction—all through an innovative approach to the medium of painting, in which light serves as both the subject and object of art.
For Corse’s first exhibition in Asia, Pace will exhibit a selection of eight new paintings by the artist, which continue her use of glass microspheres and a limited palette of white, black, and red acrylic paint to create simple geometric configurations, giving structure to the luminescent internal space of her works.
闊思的畫作不僅僅蘊含了對光的表達，還有對主觀體驗的創新探索，她的作品對週邊的環境，折射光的同時邀請觀眾在動態視覺中進行一場感知的邂逅。是次展覽中展出的畫作是闊思於1968 年開始持續演化了50 年的《白光》系列的延續。最初，是太平洋海岸公路邊的白色油漆線受車燈照亮時閃爍的光，給予了她靈感—— 白色塗料中的玻璃微粒，與她自身的物理移動，一同造成了這一現象。闊思將這一意外發現轉化進她自己的創作中，將玻璃微粒融入丙烯顏料，從而駕馭了光的折射，創造出光芒四射的視覺效果，並且根據觀賞者在畫作周圍移動的位置，看到的光反射也會產生變化。
Corse’s paintings embody rather than merely represent light, and explore subjective experience in innovative ways. Her works open themselves up to their environment, refracting light, and invite a perceptual encounter that is grounded in vision and movement. The new paintings on view in this exhibition are a continuation of Corse’s White Light paintings, which she began in 1968 and has evolved over the last 50 years. She started to create the paintings after noticing how the white lines on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway lit up when struck by headlights—a phenomenon caused by glass microspheres imbedded in the paint, as well as by her physical movement, with the experience of the highway illumination being tied to her perception of light seen while in motion. Translating this discovery to her own practice, Corse combined tiny glass microspheres with acrylic paint and harnessed the refraction of light, creating the appearance of a radiating light that shifts based on the viewer’s position and movement around the painting.
