Over the Influence欣然呈獻加拿大藝術家Andy Dixon於香港的首次個展「No Big Deal I Want More」。展覽標題取自迪士尼電影《小美人魚》主題曲《Part of Your World》的歌詞。
Over the Influence is pleased to present Canadian artist Andy Dixon’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, No Big Deal I Want More, titled after the lyric from Disney’s Little Mermaid’s iconic song Part of Your World.
Andy Dixon的創作從具有歷史性的奢侈物品中汲取靈感，探索頹敗、藝術贊助以及藝術與財富之間關係等主題。是次他於香港的首個展覽囊括三個持續進行中的系列，共15幅新作品，包括：「拍賣行物品」（Auction House Objects）、「繪畫之畫」（Paintings of Painting）以及「贊助人之家」（Patron’s Homes）。
Exploring themes of decadence, patronage, and the relationship between art and wealth, Andy Dixon draws inspiration from historical objects of luxury. For his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Dixon will exhibit 15 new works on canvas from three of his ongoing series: Auction House Objects, Paintings of Paintings, and Patron’s Homes.
延續Dixon一貫的藝術實踐，他從佳士得拍賣行近期的圖錄中挑選了一系列拍品，並以其編號為標題創作繪畫，將它們降為商品狀態呈現。是次在Over the Influence的展覽還帶來佳士得拍賣行古董部門亞洲藝術拍品主題的畫作。與其並置的是「繪畫之畫」系列，以當代的眼光審視並詮釋歷史藝術作品。
Following a common line through Dixon’s practice is a series of auction house objects plucked from recent Christie’s catalogues and titled by their Christie’s identification number, reducing them to a status of commodities. For his exhibition with Over the Influence, he has included a number of Asian objects sold through Christie’s antiques auctions. Adjacent are Dixon’s Paintings of Paintings, reinterpretations of artworks from the past, contextualized with a contemporary eye.
從共同的歷史寓意出發，Dixon重新構想靜物和仕女繪畫作為慾望載體之議題。其中一幅作品參考法國宮廷畫家Jean-Marc Nattier的《The Alliance of Love and Wine》（愛情與美酒的結合），描繪一對男女從卡拉夫瓶中飲酒的場景，畫面中女人的衣衫滑落於胸部之下，似乎不受生活掙扎的束縛。
Working from common historical tropes, Dixon reimagines still-life and odalisque paintings as a vehicle for desire. One referencing The Alliance of Love and Wine by Jean-Marc Nattier, shows a man and woman drinking from a carafe, her dress falling below her breast, uninhibited by life’s struggles. In the same vein are paintings of Dixon’s own collectors’ homes, with his works hanging prominently in their living rooms.
