高野綾之夢幻香港 | AYA TAKANO’S DREAMY HONG KONG

香港近年來歷盡艱辛,特別是令我們困在家中、與外界隔絕的全球疫情。日本藝術家高野綾畫筆下的香港讓我們會想起曾經的快樂與安寧。貝浩登(香港)正呈獻高野綾的個展,通過色彩和幻想的結合,在十幅油畫和二十四張紙本中捕捉香港的風景與文化。

In recent years, Hong Kong has endured numerous hardships, especially the worldwide pandemic that keeps us in homes and isolates us from the outside world. Japanese artist Aya Takano’s paintings of Hong Kong remind us of comparatively happier and normal lives of past times. Perrotin Hong Kong presents a solo exhibition by Takano which captures Hong Kong’s landscape, cultures, and uniqueness by the concoction of colors and fantasy in ten oiled paintings and twenty-four papered drawings.

高野綾筆觸下的絢麗香港展現出她對這座城市發自肺腑的喜愛。輕盈散漫的人物和色彩鮮明的風景突出了香港的本土特色和當地文化。她在創作時使用超扁平風格,為她塑造的人物賦予了大眼睛和纖細的四肢,這使她的風格增添了一股夢幻感。在她的畫作中,我們皆能看見畫中的角色在精細和複雜的背景下進行著平凡的日常活動,例如從塑料袋中思索究竟帶哪一隻金魚回家;或者在離開電車前與朋友數著硬幣準備投幣。 

Her incarnation of Hong Kong shows her intimate affection for the city of Hong Kong. Local characteristics and culture are highlighted through her drawings of ethereal characters and vibrant landscapes. Her Superflat approach in portraying the characters adds to the fantasticality and dreaminess in her style, from the animated huge eyes to delicate thin limbs. The characters are all doing mundane everyday activities against the precisely detailed and intricate backgrounds, such as deciding which goldfish to take home from little plastic bags; or gathering coins with friends for the tram fare before dropping off.

在蔚藍的天空底下,人物的頭髮和衣服在微風中搖曳。高野綾創造了一個夢幻般的世界,使她筆下的角色可以無視萬有引力,漂浮在那些我們無比熟悉的地方。

The dreamy characters are presented in an unearthly and magical manner where they can float and fly in familiar places. Takano created a wonderland where we defy the laws of gravity, with hair and clothes swaying in the light breeze, under the radiant blue sky.
