簡介

Susan Weil著迷於肉眼所看見與確知的關係,以及時間、物體移動,和語言的表達。她經常折斷平面圖像,然後再解構及重組,靈巧地結合不同的材料及創作方法,如拼貼、藍圖印刷、循環再用的油畫布、壓克力顏料及木材等,創作出立體的混合媒介作品。

 

Weil於戰後時期的紐約正式展開其藝術家生涯,當時正值折衷的文化影響和跨學科實驗活躍時期,她於著名的黑山學院跟隨Josef Albers習畫,其間先後與著名的藝術家Willem與 Elaine de Kooning 、Jasper Johns、Robert Rauschenbery及Cy Twombly共事。Weil喜愛將嚴肅與俏皮的元素同時注入創作中,有別於同期的藝術家,她從不怯於以圖案比喻及聯繫現實生活,並勇於從自然、文學、攝影及其個人經歷中汲取靈感。

 

多年來,她熱衷於現代愛爾蘭作家James Joyce、波斯詩人Rumi,和英美攝影師Eadweard Muybridge的作品。她曾於巴黎深造,並於瑞典和德國舉辦展覽。然而,她謂:「我沒有太多的遊歷經驗,我透過思想走過一趟又一趟的旅程。」她的總結:「我站在與自己同名的定點位置上,真實和藝術世界在我身邊不停移動和改變,同時我也經歷深化的過程,此乃獨特的雙循環觀點。」

 

Weil曾獲得無數榮譽,包括獲頒古根漢基金會獎學金及美國國家藝術基金會藝術獎。她的作品珍藏於紐約大都會藝術博物館、紐約現代藝術博物館、倫敦維多利亞與阿伯特博物館、洛杉磯保羅蓋蒂博物館、斯德哥爾摩國立美術館、赫爾辛基城市藝術博物館,及馬德里索非亞王后國家藝術中心。2010年,著名意大利藝術著作出版商Skira 出版了合共142頁的藝術專集Susan Weil, Moving Pictures,收錄其既大型又多樣化的作品,藝術家著作及詩詞。

 

2015年,Susan Weil的作品展出於第56屆威尼斯國際藝術雙年展官方延伸展覽Frontiers Reimagined。其他近期重點展覽包括2015年先後於波士頓當代藝術學院和洛杉磯漢莫爾美術館展出的Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933-1957,此展覽現假哥倫布市俄亥俄州立大學衛克斯那藝術中心舉行,展期至2017年1月1日。此外,紐約州立大學水牛城分校近期舉辦了題為James Joyce: Shut Your Eyes and See的藝術家個展。

Lee Waisler - About Faces March 2011

For his second solo exhibition in Hong Kong, California-based American painter Lee Waisler presents a series of moving portraits of historical and contemporary figures. Having practiced abstraction for decades, Waisler returned to figuration full-force six years ago, making what he calls "dimensional portraits," combining strips of wood and blocks of color to create nuanced faces and figures.

Preview: Here and Now at Sundaram Tagore Gallery March 2009

Art historian Sundaram Tagore's doctoral thesis looks at Indian artists' response to European modernisation from the 1940s to 1980s. As a curator, however, his focus is more on the here and now. Hence the title of his gallery's latest group exhibition by 18 international artists, which opens today at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery's Hong Kong branch.

Susan Weil at Sundaram Tagore Gallery March 2009

Susan Weil's paintings under the title Motion Pictures, are world-class pieces by a world-class painter. To see them on a Hong Kong gallery wall is gratifying twice. Not only does the show raise the bar along Hollywood Road and its environs; it also brings out a certain Asian-ness in the work—in the color, some of its subjects, its mix of material—that one might otherwise have missed.
