哈蘭.米勒個展 | HARLAND MILLER’S SOLO EXHIBITION

香港白立方隆重呈獻哈蘭.米勒於香港的首次個展,展出全新的繪畫、創作草圖及版畫,從而凸顯藝術家對文字、影像和繪畫語言鍥而不捨的探索精神。

White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition by Harland Miller, his first in Hong Kong. Featuring new paintings, drawings and prints, it foregrounds the exploration of text, image and the language of painting within Miller’s work.

在地面層展出的全新大型油畫系列,指涉書籍封面設計;巨大的英文字母在畫面上互相交叠,色彩紛陳,而畫的下方則是一片中性顏色的色塊,上面注有簡短而耐人尋味的「書名」,如「罪」、「愛」和「上司」等,其旁的「作者」名字則一律是藝術家自己的名字。藝術家一改以往享負盛名的風格,並沒有挪用企鹅平裝書的經典封面設計,而是將文字化身為繪畫的形式,令字母的負空間、線條和曲線成為圖像與構圖不可或缺的部分。

On the ground floor, a series of new large-scale paintings make reference to the layout of book covers, presenting large, overlaid letter forms using a pop-like palette. At the bottom of each, a neutral coloured band displays a ‘title’, in the form of short, enigmatic words such as ‘sin’, ‘luv’, or ‘boss’ alongside Miller’s own name as their ‘author’. In a departure from the artist’s previous and well-known series of paintings that used the recognisable covers of vintage Penguin paperbacks, here text is approached more formally, as a painterly device where the negative space, lines and curves of letters become integral to both image and composition.
