> DESCRIPTION

上海James Cohan画廊荣幸推出来自美国的三位著名艺术家的展览,炼金术与问寻:菲利普•塔菲(Philip Taaffe),弗雷德•托马塞利(Fred Tomaselli)与特里•温特斯(Terry Winters)。此次展览由独立策展人Raymond Foye与资深策展人Jennifer McGregor策划,2011年4月至6月曾在美国纽约波浪山植物园与文化中心首次展出。

大自然与自然界在东西方文化中都是艺术家们经久不息的灵感源泉。展出的三位艺术家,尽管每个人的创作过程与材料选择都有各自与众不同的、创新的方法,但彼此均有着共同的兴趣,他们多样的创作风格从视觉上呼应了他们对于学习自然与观察变幻的风景时的共同热爱。对菲利普•塔菲来说,植物与植物学是艺术家重要且持续不断的创作灵感来源。从他那大量的珍稀书籍收藏中获取的研究,塔菲用累积叠加的方法,将自然印刷术、拼贴与油画结合在一起。在弗雷德•托马塞利的作品中,体现出一种对流行文化,艺术史以及艺术家自身与自然世界相互融合的如百科全书般的广博兴趣。展出作品的形式为油画与黑影照片,拼贴使用到的很多植物材料是艺术家从自己位于纽约布鲁克林的花园中搜集来的。在特里•温特斯的整个职业生涯中,从生物学进程、科学与数学领域、自然界的结构性基础、技术与人类心智等方面的广泛探索给他的油画、绘画与版画创作带来了丰富的主题。此次展览也标志着植物图像的回归。

三位艺术家均有丰富的国际参展经验。菲利普•塔菲曾参加过卡内基国际展(1999)、悉尼双年展(1996)与惠特尼 双年展(1991, 1995)等,重要个展有西班牙瓦伦西亚现代艺术博物馆(2000),圣马力诺的现代艺术馆(2004)和德国沃尔夫斯堡的巴塞尔美术馆(2008)等。 他的作品被许多博物馆收藏,包括纽约现代艺术博物馆、费城艺术博物馆、惠特尼美国艺术博物馆、纽约古根海姆博物馆、旧金山艺术博物馆与西班牙马德里索菲亚 王后艺术中心。

弗雷德•托马塞利近期在科罗拉多阿斯彭艺术馆举办了个人中期回顾展,个展随后巡回至纽约萨拉托加斯基德莫尔大学的Tang美术馆,并在去年秋天前往纽约布鲁克林的布鲁克林美术馆展出。他在许多地方举办过个展,如伦敦白立方画廊,纽约James Cohan画廊。弗雷德•托马塞利:怪物天堂, 最初在苏格兰爱丁堡的The Fruitmarket画廊(2004)展出,后前往西班牙萨拉曼卡的Domus Artium;爱尔兰都柏林爱尔兰现代艺术馆;布兰迪斯大学玫瑰艺术博物馆,沃尔瑟姆,马萨诸塞州(2005)。同时,他亦参加过许多重要群展,如第17 届悉尼双年展(2010);2004年惠特尼美国艺术博物馆双年展等。托马塞利的作品被许多世界著名的美术馆所收藏,包括卡内基美术馆,匹兹堡,宾夕法尼 亚州;希尔修现代艺术馆和雕塑馆,史密森学会,华盛顿D.C.;纽约现代艺术博物馆;旧金山现代艺术博物馆;芝加哥艺术学院,伊利诺斯;奥尔布赖特-诺克 斯美术馆,纽约。

James Cohan Gallery Shanghai is pleased to present the exhibition Alchemy & Inquiry with works by three prominent American artists, Philip Taaffe, Fred Tomaselli and Terry Winters. The exhibition was organized by independent curator Raymond Foye and Senior Curator Jennifer McGregor at the Wave Hill botanical garden and cultural center in New York City, where this exhibition first originated and was on view from April to June, 2011.

Nature and the natural world have long inspired artists in both Western and Eastern cultures. While each of the three artists in this exhibition have their own distinctive and innovative approach to their process and materials, they each share a common interest in producing works that become diverse, visually engaged responses to the ways in which they study nature and observe the changing landscape. For Philip Taaffe plant life and botanicals have been a significant and continued source of inspiration for the artist’s work. Through intensive research drawn from the artist’s extensive library of rare books Taaffe takes an accumulative approach to his works, often combining nature-printing techniques, collage, and painting. In the works by Fred Tomaselli there is an encyclopedic interest in popular culture, art history, and the artist’s own engagement with the natural world around him. On view will be paintings and photograms using actual plant material collected from the artist’s own garden in Brooklyn, New York. Throughout his career Terry Winters has explored a wide range of subjects from biological processes, scientific and mathematical fields, the structural underpinnings of nature, technology and the human mind as source material for his paintings, drawings and prints. This exhibition also hallmarks a return to botanical imagery.

All three of these artists have participated widely in international exhibitions. Philip Taaffe’s work has been included in the Carnegie International (1999), the Biennale of Sydney (1996) and the Whitney Biennial of American Art (1991, 1995), with individual survey exhibition at IVAM, Valencia, Spain (2000), Galleria d’Arte Moderna, San Marino (2004) and Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany (2008). His works are in numerous public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; The Whitney Museum of American Art; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Art, and Museo Nacional Reina Sofia in Madrid, Spain.

Fred Tomaselli’s recent mid-career survey opened at the Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Colorado in 2009 and traveled to the Tang Museum, Skidmore College, Saratoga, New York and to the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York where it was on view last fall. His works have been included in solo exhibitions at White Cube, London and James Cohan Gallery, New York. Fred Tomaselli: Monsters of Paradise originated at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland (2004), traveling to Domus Artium, Salamanca, Spain; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland; The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University, Waltham, MA (2005). His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions such as the 17th Biennale of Sydney (2010); 2004 Biennial Exhibition, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Tomaselli’s work is included in numerous distinguished museum collections including the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Chicago Art Institute, Chicago, IL; and the Albright-Knox Gallery of Art, Buffalo, New York.

Terry Winters has exhibited extensively and his works are included in important collections throughout the United State and Europe. He has had solo exhibitions Whitechapel Gallery, London (1999); The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2001); Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2009). Terry Winters Paintings, Drawings, Prints 1994-2004, The Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, MA, traveled to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Houston, TX; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA (2004).
