Press Release

以新德里為創作基地的藝術家Olivia Fraser將於纽约圣德拉姆泰戈尔画廊舉行首個紐約個人藝術展,展出最新作品。Fraser生於倫敦,於蘇格蘭高地成長,自1989年起移居印度。她對印度傳統小型畫的技術及元素深感興趣,將自己從西方現代藝術得到的啟發,結合礦物和植物顏料,於手工製作的紙張上一一表達。

Fraser於神聖的花園展覽中展出的三十幅作品植根於她對瑜伽的迷戀。瑜伽冥想的動作將花園形象化,特別是查克拉的千瓣蓮花式,是達至開明的輔助方式。展覽題目暗示出藝術家創作實踐的中心概念:「花園是一個封閉的自然景觀,並由人類正式規劃打理,我以此為創作基礎,」她謂:「我運用關於景觀的元素 — 樹木、花草、河流、山脈,和天空,再把它們解構,縮小而將其本質顯露出來。」

Fraser深受十九世紀初的Jodpuri繪畫影響,她那錯綜複雜,充滿寶石色彩的創作同時包含豐富的歷史意象及原型語言。大部份作品都跟Blue Himalaya一樣,以一正方形框架作格式,類似於象徵神聖空間的曼陀羅。此外,Fraser經常將作品主體組合為具精神意義的數目,同樣參照於印度藝術及文化歷史。作品如Awakening,七隻手臂在垂直和水平方向交錯構成坐標方格的圖案。

Fraser參照印度小型畫大師的創作模式,從齋葡亞尋找作品素材,包括由尼泊爾黃麻製成的瓦斯利紙張,及從石頭、植物和泥土手工研磨成的顏料,藝術家再以阿拉伯樹膠將顏料結合。她那松鼠毛刷的單一彎曲發尾能勾畫出最精緻的螺旋圖案及線條。

奥利维亚Fraser的作品是澳洲、法國、印度、新加坡、阿聯酋、美國,和英國的私人或公共收藏品,同時珍藏於比利時Septon宗教藝術博物館。她曾於印度、中國,和英國舉辦個人展覽。近期,Fraser的創作於新德里Rabindra总统府拉利特·卡拉画廊表格奉献:印度氩的展览,及第56届威尼斯国际艺术双年展官方延伸展览前沿重新想象的精神。(www.frontiersreimagined.org) 中展出。
