「有一種扭曲以令人喜愛的方式發生。」— 約翰．柯林 (John Currin)
“There’s a kind of a distortion that happens with adoration.”—John Currin
Gagosian is pleased to present new portraits by John Currin. This is his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong and his first exhibition in Asia. Conflating inspirative sources of high and low culture, from old masters to soft-porn pinups, Currin channels his prodigious painterly skills into idealized yet perverse images that both charm and challenge.
在柯林的新肖像畫作中，他回歸⾃⼰最喜愛的主題：⼥性。畫作展現他經常採⽤的主題，也深 ⼊探索⼥性肖像畫的體裁。以特徵⽽⾔，這些⼥性看似半真、半虛構，彷彿畫中⼈只有⼀部分 置於扭曲的鏡⼦前，其餘部分則正常無礙。
In a series of new portraits, Currin returns to his most beloved subject: women. These latest paintings demonstrate some persistent themes in Currin’s oeuvre, as well as a deep exploration of the genre of female portraiture. Characteristically, these women often appear as half-real, half-imagined, as though only part of the artist’s subject were held up to a distorting mirror, with the rest left intact.
