&ldquo\;Larger than Life&rdquo\; is a solo exhibition by con temporary Indonesian artist\, Dodit Artawan presented by Art Projects Galle ry for the first time in Hong Kong. Based in Bali\, Dodit is known for his hyperrealism oil paintings that give the illusion of reality.

\n

The & ldquo\;Larger than Life&rdquo\; solo exhibition showcases Dodit Artawan&rsq uo\;s latest works featuring the artist&rsquo\;s favorite muses &ndash\; ic ons of western consumerism culture &ndash\; in particular\, Barbie dolls an d western branded alcohol\, a strong visual and thematically complementary combination that the artist feels is able to project the intended represent ational imageries for the messages that he wants to convey. Dodit Artawan p ortrays Barbie and her friends in their impossibly perfect figures with fla wless plastic complexions set against the glistening\, reflective glass tow ers of gin\, vodkas and whiskeys to convey a seductive image of glamour\, c onsumerism and hedonism that is so intoxicating\, addictive and difficult t o resist\, as a commentary on the social effects of globalization and invas ion of a foreign culture that has been so readily embraced by society and t hereby displacing local culture.

\n

Beyond Dodit Artawan&rsquo\;s impr essive hyper-realistic compositions\, the works&rsquo\; high-definition det ails\, vivid colors and rich textures further echoes the constant visual st imulations and sales pitch for consumer products and lifestyle that is bein g bombarded onto society today through printed media\, television\, adverti sements and the internet. As a result\, the visually dynamic qualities of D odit Artawan&rsquo\;s works and the artist&rsquo\;s painting hyper-realisti c technique become integral to the underlying meanings that they are meant to convey.

\n

Born and based in Bali\, Indonesia\, contemporary Indone sian artist Dodit Artawan (b.1978) studied fine art at the Indonesian Art I nstitute Denpasar Bali and in 2011 left the college to start his art career as part of the TAXU Art Clinic group\, an artist collective focused on the breakaway from the hegemony of traditional Balinese art on the contemporar y art scene in order to seek new expressions for contemporary art in Bali. Prior to the current solo exhibition in Hong Kong\, Dodit Artawan has been widely exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Indonesia\, Sing apore\, Malaysia\, Japan\, Italy and USA.

Eliot's \;Four Quartets\, a mo numental poem acknowledged as one of the masterpieces of the twentieth cent ury. What has followed is a collaborative interdisciplinary project\, featu ring paintings by Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman\, and an original piano and string quartet composition by Christopher Theofanidis.

He is so infatuated with painting\, the two huge and heavy palettes covered with paints are good proofs.
\n
 \;
\n< div>He started oil painting in 1977 and became a freelance painter on his r etirement from the army in 1984. He occasionally sold one or two of his wor ks and then invested all that he got to painting again. When there&rsquo\;s hard time that he cannot financially continue\, he went to teach as a part time teacher. As long as it&rsquo\;s getting better\, he resigned teaching and went back to painting again. He&rsquo\;s never been the one to schmooz e someone to sell his works. He&rsquo\;s been like this for over 30 years.< /div>\n
 \;
\n
Modern painting\, also known as plane paint ing\, is very different from classic painting. Chen Xin&rsquo\;s abstract p aintings are those that are far beyond plane. Color and shape are not drawn in front of a two-dimensional background in his painting\, but are portray ed in a three-dimensional circumstance.
\n
 \;
\n
Onl y the intangibility and the deepness of a three-dimensional circumstance\, could people find a conception.
\n
 \;
\n
While diffe rent from the intangibility which is the conception that artists pursued in ancient China\, Chen Xin is looking for something deep and profound. Final ly\, he found something in Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn.
\n
With the contrast of dark brown with bright yellow\, with the co-existence of r oughness and ethereality\, with the coupling of clutter and order\, the anc ient dark brown is refreshed and reborn to be a new chapter.
\n
&n bsp\;
\n
In main part of his painting\, there&rsquo\;s a propulsiv e and extensive power\, which is sometimes in a cluster of falling stones a nd sometimes on a collision of different parts.
\n
There&rsquo\;s occasionally a touch of brightness found in dark brown\, which indicates a bigger space among the cracks of darkness\, or which indicates the skyline far away.
\n
When people think of skyline\, there will be more ima ginations drawn out by abstract image\, for example the bonfire at night\, the meeting of a bagger with goddess\, the intersection of mountain and oce an and the emergence of ancient wood and dead sea&hellip\;&hellip\;
\n
 \;
\n
Modern painting\, known as abstract painting\, als o varies from the classic concrete painting. In Chen Xin&rsquo\;s works\, t here&rsquo\;s an imagination for concrete images derived from abstract art.
\n
 \;
\n
Василий Кандинскийn is the one who firstly metaphorically compared abstract painting to music. A century has passed b y\, abstract painting is now still waiting for his Beethoven and Bach. I wi sh that Chen Xin would bring us hope.&mdash\;&mdash\;Liu \;Xiaochun&nbs p\;

Han Shaoguang has been pursuing art for over 30 years. Throu gh constant traveling and learning he accomplished his life's resume. Such path of life is also echoing the age of massive migration of population in modern Chinese society. A historical melodrama featuring land on the move a nd images on the move is kept put on show. Han Shaoguang's art matured and perfected in such social structural upheavals. His recent works have the pr ofound connotation of expressionism as well as the magical sights of surrea lism. In retrospect of the tradition\, he put more vision and thought into what is taking place in contemporary time. His artistic practice embodies t he impacts of religion and philosophy on human spirit. From the unique pers pective of an artist\, he explores the spiritual and temperamental conditio ns. He depicts all walks of life\, yet not real-to-life individuals. These lives\, being represented in the rise and fall of mountains\, are an reacti on coming from Han Shaoguang's experience in life. They symbolize the heigh t of the gods and the myth of the moving life. It also confirms the meaning of the world through images and expounds the meaning of life through conti nuous artistic activities.

I love his way that is close to life and human.
\nIt&rsquo\;s almost a year since Li Xiaofei&rsquo\;s solo exhibition &ldqu o\;Stray into the World&rdquo\;. Indeed\, he has strayed into the world for a long time.\n
It&rsquo\;s out of the stray that he brings meani ng to his leisure and life by non-stop self-exploration. The morality of pe rsistence carries him over the hardness of life. He ends up with a rich lif e experience including publishing books\, teaching in the university\, and also curating exhibitions for his students. \;
\n
Though being a frequent guest of his studio\, he seldom pays attention to my presence\, neither do I say anything to him. We are bridged by silence.
\n
A s he works\, he&rsquo\;s like a rope walker who lives on the site but has n othing to rely on. Willing to bear the risk and cost\, he chooses to be a w anderer who tears the canvas with brushes while reaching for the peak of on e&rsquo\;s soul.
\n
Art calls not only for one&rsquo\;s body and h eart\, but also establishes a nation of religion in one&rsquo\;s life. In n o case could one change the border of the nation\, neither could one alter the devotion or religiosity. It&rsquo\;s a irreversible standpoint and dete rmination regardless of any danger or uncertainty. \;
\n
In my view\, Li Xiaofei suffers from an incurable amnesia. Because he always tra nsfers the images on his canvas into propositions against the viewers\, the fate and also the society. He must have figured out the answers on the pre scription all by himself.
\n
His images make people feel melanchol y. Moreover\, he sincerely invokes the people to experience the wandering o f meaning in contemporary society in the absence of God. The piano\, sofa a nd chair discard their original context to a meaningless flight\, expecting a pending re-union or a moving confession. God knows exactly what old stor y he intends to retrospect\, which he then develops into a dramatic conflic t. \;
\n
In Legend\, Alien View\, Performance without Audience \, Hero is Gone\, the radiance left on the canvas is liken to the remained alkali and salts on Gobi desert\, whose light points to the other bank that is made up of inquiries. In order to get close to him\, a stranger needs a tacit understanding or several familiar words to cross the bank. The momen t he knows\, closeness is burning cozily.
\n
Xiaofei literally mea ns that one must take off only after daybreak. For the daybreak blends the gaze\, inspiration and doubt of the daylight with the damage\, fire and mon tage of the dark night.
\n
Alone he stands by the bank and on the cliff\, whose figure turns into a green leaf or lifting smoke in the eyes o f a distant observer. &mdash\;&mdash\;by Ai Hai

The ink drawing needs to return to its internal subtle ren ewal after modernistic revolution and all sorts of restless and brute contr ivances. It should absorb more profundity in silence and meditation. This p rocess calls for a powerful mind. Tian Wei\, a devout practitioner\, is dra wing in silent transform while praying silently. Miraculous brightness of t he ink and wash drawing is constantly flowing\, making our souls shudder.\n
 \;
\n
The ink drawing is yet to be renewed with ne w spirits and qualities. In other words\, fresh miraculous brightness is ne eded to awaken its quality. Be it of Buddhism or Christian Genesis\, the br ightness has gone through modernistic baptism. The ink drawing has its own brightness\, which is subtly revitalized in the drawings of man-of-letters. The strength of &ldquo\;brightness&rdquo\; and the tenderness of &ldquo\;Q i&rdquo\; are to integrate when the brightness encounters western idea of r eason. Brightness and Qi\, spirituality and perception are yet to awaken sl eeping Chinese once again. \;
\n
 \;
\n
Visual mo del of Tian Wei&rsquo\;s works has great originality and rare texture. Diff erent from western abstract painting and former Chinese Maximalism\, inner breathing and conviction are infused into his works through repetitive stro kes. The theory is reverse restructuring of Chinese blank space\, followed by the technique of layers of ink adopted by Gong Xian in the late Ming Dyn asty (1368--1644)\, and ink light adopted by Huang Binghong. Repetitive lay ers of ink serve the &ldquo\;blank space&rdquo\; at the center of the drawi ng to give off cool light. Rather than make an artificial brightness\, he e nables the blank space give off everlasting light in the flowing of dark in k. The light has the power toreach our souls. The light turns into an everl asting rainbow when golden or colorful powder is added to the drawing. The works of Tian Wei make us feel again the loftiness of western abstract draw ings and the naturalness of Chinese art. His works resemble incessant waves of the sea\, or the flowing hazy moment of the world. They shed light on t he internal integration of Chinese yin and yang(two opposing principles of the nature).The brightness of the light is in contrast with the profoundnes s of the ink when the positioning of double-string is adopted\, so the melo dy of the universe is constantly resounding on the drawing. \;
\n< div> \;
\n
The exhibition shows us Tian Wei&rsquo\;s journey o f thinking over these years. It gives us a chance to experience the rare qu alities of the ink and brush drawing in its renewal and calmness\, which is the secret shuddering of the heart upon touching the world\, the aspiratio n when the world came into being\, and the incessant flowing passion of lif e that shakes our souls. His works bring about calmness and composure to th is chaotic world\, leading us to follow more lofty brightness,because it is the horizon of the spirit world.&mdash\;&mdash\;Xia Kejun

Flowers have nature given grace with the holy spirit of th e human heart \, They have short-lived but brilliant and beautiful lives an d consequently people have special feelings and an extra caring for them. F or all time\, the flower has been one of the constantl themes in the world of art. Van Gogh's " Sunflowers " and Monet&rsquo\;s &ldquo\; Water Lilies " are examples which these artists left for humanity&rsquo\;s spiritual wea lth and have won eternal and universal praise.Still life is a usual theme i n traditional painting. There have been numerous and uncountable flower pai ntings from the artist&rsquo\;s brush but there are very few engraved with distinctive and individual traces of strong personality.

由上海多伦现代美术馆主办,策展人仇海波策划的"各就其位:当代艺术中的自我建构"艺术展将于2014年9月13日下午3点在多 伦现代美术馆隆重开幕。此次展览集结了20多位艺术家的近70件作品,展出的作品涵盖了油画、雕塑、装置、摄影、影像等。

\n

  此次展览大体上 分为"欲望与焦虑"、"存在与身份"、"身体与经验"、"叙事与反叙事"四个部分,试图通过这四部分内容,重启"自我建构"这个话题,去观察、呈现和思考艺术家 在"自我建构"这个议题下的创作思考和实践。

\n

  总体上看,参展艺术家的作品大多介于具象与抽象之间,其创作从叙事的传统或当代艺术的批判性 中解放出来,通过绘画、影像等形式关注自己的个人生活,或审视自己的内心世界,从而塑造自己的精神家园,让自我的情感、观念、意志以一种视觉的方式呈现在观众面 前。形象的暗示,图像的隐喻,他们的作品大多充满了情绪和情感的无尽倾诉或观念的叙说,隐藏的个体意念和精神状态歇斯底里地外化为表现性的符号。策展人仇海波说 :"这种无意识或有意识的自我诉说,解决的不是当代艺术自身笼统的批判性问题,而是在一个新的视界重新审视、规划、理解已经丢弃了的'自我'视野和经验表达。"

\n

  作为此次展览的参展艺术家,同时也是发起人之一的张勇,对于该展览也有着自己的理解和感受,他说:"参展艺术家的作品都流露出各自不同的 生命体验和生存经验,作品也都呈现出各异的审美趣味,有的作品也反映出当下大部分人群的那种自我安慰,甚至逃避现实的内心状态。在创作上,有的作品融入了电影元 素,有的具有哲学内涵,手机、互联网等新技术在艺术家的作品中也有体现,艺术家的创作不受任何的限制。"

  此次参展的艺术家大多来自上海, 他们有的任职于各大艺术院校,有的是游离于体制之外的职业艺术家,还有的是在体制内外不断变换角色的艺术家。在一定程度上,这次展览其实也反映了上海地区艺术家 的基本创作面貌和个性,并从一个较为宏观的视野展现了这些艺术家们对自我的内心世界以及所处的现实环境的感悟与思考。
