讓-保羅•利奧佩爾(Jean-Paul Riopelle)出生於 1923 年加拿大魁北克蒙特利爾,是 1940 年代加拿大藝術運動團體“自動主義”(Les Automatistes) 的重要成員之一,並享譽戰後國際藝壇。他在 1940 年代學習繪畫,其後開始其極富個人風格的創作歷程。他跨出了傳統油彩筆觸的限制,以繽紛的色彩和層疊的顏料,表達出他內在的情緒。藝術家利用調色刀、抹刀等工具,趁油彩未乾前來回塗抹顏料,從而產生密集、疊錯的層次、格子及立方體。利奧佩爾在 2002 年與世長辭。

Painter Jean-Paul Riopelle was among the first Canadian artists to achieve international fame and recognition. Born in 1923, he studied in Montreal at the École des Beaux Arts and the École de Meuble during the 1940s. During his studies, he became associated with the group of Canadian painters known as Les Automatistes, a group adjacent to the Surrealists that rebuked establishment, tradition and religious authority, favoring instead the subconscious as the driving force behind nonfigurative painting. He traveled to France after the end of World War II, where he lived with the American painter Joan Mitchell. Their work from the 1960s, especially, shows their mutual influence on each other.

A.R. 彭克(A.R. Penck)在 1939 年出生於德國德累斯頓,同時具備畫家、雕塑家、爵士鼓手等身分。作為新表現主義的佼佼者,彭克開創了獨一無二的繪畫語言和藝術風格,並被譽為戰後德國最重要的藝術家之一。彭克的作品看似簡單,充滿了粗直的線條和彷如原始壁畫中的象形圖案,背後隱藏的卻是彭克對符號和象徵深入的理解。他故意忽視客觀形象,並以感官和符號學入手,開創屬於自己獨一無二的藝術風格和語言。彭克拒絕標準化,而是透過充滿自然想像的圖形來傳遞人類的行為理念。彭克的極簡符號語言令他在戰後如雨後春筍冒起的抽象畫派中佔一重要席位,並形成了專屬的抽象美學。他在 2017 年於瑞士蘇黎世逝世。

Born Ralf Winkler in 1939 in Dresden, A.R. Penck is considered a Neo-Expressionist and best known for his paintings and sculptures characterized by simplified figures and forms, and neo-primitive symbols and patterns. His interest lay in the development of a pictorial language based on a simple system of signs, which it would be possible for everyone to decode. The result was a radical reduction in form to a series of outlined stick figures, which he called “Standart”, in reference to the signals associated with commonly known standard symbols. He achieved an abstraction of complex, socio-economic situations in flat, pictorial compositions infused with symbolism.

安德烈•布拉吉利(André Brasilier)在 1929 年出生於法國索米爾。他在 1949 年進入法國國家美術學院學習,其後在 23 歲時獲得羅馬大獎,赴義大利美第奇別墅進修,最後在1959 年起定居巴黎,開始其筆耕不輟的藝術生涯。布拉吉利的作品柔美恬靜,經常以馬匹、大自然、音樂和女性為素材,充滿永恆意味而洋溢着個人情感,極具感染力。布拉吉利的主要題材包括他的妻子和繆思-香黛爾,她是藝術家一生持續不斷的靈感來源。布拉吉利的另一個鐘愛的主題是馬,源自於他年幼居於索米爾鄉間的經歷。在極簡而浪漫的背景襯映下,藝術家輕鬆地將觀畫者帶入超現實的景觀中,用簡潔的色彩、圖案和造型,勾勒出夢幻般的影像,描繪出大自然的溫馨共融。

André Brasilier is a French painter, born in Saumur, France, who studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Art in Paris. In 1952, he received the Florence Blumenthal Award and the Prix de Rome for painting the following year. He resided at the villa Medicis in Rome from 1954 to 1957. He now lives and works in Paris. He creates canvasses that are a blend of abstraction, expressionism, and something distinctly his own. His works often feature themes and motifs like horses, nature, music, and women and more particularly his wife and muse, Chantal. In an intimate communion with nature, he draws his inspiration from its language, sounds, and colors, thus revealing the natural beauty of our surroundings.

馮驍鳴(Feng Xiao-Min)是一名法籍華裔畫家,在 1959 年出生於上海,自幼便對藝術有着濃厚的興趣,尤其酷愛書法和繪畫。在國內的藝術院校畢業後,他於 1988 年定居法國,並進入了巴黎國立高等美術學院,在法國及海外的眾多畫廊都有他的傑出作品展出。自 1997 年到 2000 年,他作為客座教授,在法國巴黎國立高等美術學院繪畫技巧專業授課。之後,他決定放棄教學把全部精力集中於他的繪畫創作。法國多家出版社還出版了許多有關他的繪畫和書法的美術畫集,他的部分作品還被選入法國教委的教科書中。現在他的作品被世界眾多的畫廊、博物館和基金會等收藏。

Feng Xiao-Min was born in Shanghai, China. His passion for art was clear from a very young age. After fine arts studies in China, he moved to France in 1988 and enrolled at the Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux- arts in Paris. Xiao-Min was later invited to teach at the same prestigious institution. His artworks show a mastery of colour and capacity for manipulating brushstrokes with a graceful and powerful, poetic spirit, akin to the works of Chinese masters Zao Wou- ki and Chu Teh-Chun, with whom he worked closely to perfect his art form. Xiao-Min has also published a number of books on painting and calligraphy and many of his works now illustrated the pages of French school manuals. His works are collected and presented in various private and public collections, including galleries, museums and foundations, in France and abroad.

曹星熙 | Cho Sung-Hee

曹星熙(Cho Sung-Hee)1949  年出生於韓國,長年在首爾和紐約生活。她的作品以富有質感的極簡 風 格 為 主 。 1970 年 代 , 單色藝術運動(Dansaekhwa)在韓國蓬勃發展,許多藝術家都   參與其中,曹星熙也是其中一員。她使用了當時 盛行的藝術材料,由桑葉製成的韓紙(Hanji)作 為創作媒介,在她的作品中整合了傳統韓國情懷 與單色畫的美學,表達了顏色和質感之間的關係。曹星熙的作品在多間國際級私人和公共博物館中 展出,包括位於韓國的首爾當代藝術館、世宗文 化會館、韓國駐洛杉磯和紐約文化院等。

Cho Sung-Hee was born in 1949 in Korea. In constructing the surface of her works, Sung-Hee uses a collage method in which many circles are hand-cut or gently torn from traditional “hanji” paper, then layered with oil pigments and placed one atop another. Sung-Hee successfully combines a traditional Korean sensibility with her unique vision and personal narrative. Her works explore the complex relationship between colour and texture through a labour intensive, time-consuming process. Her works have been exhibited in various prestigious private and public institutions including Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Sejong Art Centre in Seoul, Telentine Art Centre in Chicago, L.A. Korea Cultural Service, Los Angeles, New York Cultural Service, Mutual Saving and Finance Company in Seoul and Domino Foods, Inc, New York.
