> DESCRIPTION

“I am more and more convinced that music is not, in essence, a thing which can be cast into a traditional and fixed form. It is made up of colors and rhythms.”

-          Claude Debussy

Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune is a solo show by Singapore based artist Jane Lee.

Presenting a selection of some her most iconic pieces as well as her most recent artworks, Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune will explore the realm of sculpture within the painting boundaries.

Attempting  to redefine painting as not only a medium of representation, Lee moves away from the restrictions of traditional compositional structure and  instead goes back to the origin of paint: Color. In her abstractions color has not only a highly attractive quality but more importantly it has an objectified presence. It invades, conquers the space in morbid and elliptical convulsions. Color usually understood as purely a compositional element, in Lee’s artworks becomes the composition itself. It subsumes matter into form; destructs the painting surface in agglomerates of colorful substance. From a pure two-dimensional entity, it explodes into a flourishing three dimensional object.

A clear reference to French composer Claude Debussy’s master piece, Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune explores painting composition through the ideas of color and texture. If the musical shapes in Debussy’s sonata are able to evoke different colors and hues, then Jane Lee paintings can be considered to further twist and entwine these pure colors into magnificent sculptures.

我越來越確信音樂,實際上,是不可被鑄入傳統和固定的形式。它是由色彩和韻律組成的。」

                                                                                        德布西

《Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune》是新加坡藝術家李綾瑄的個展。

本次展覽將展出藝術家最新和最具代表性的作品。展覽《Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune》亦會深入探討涉足於繪畫範圍內的雕塑領域。

為了重新解構繪畫作為不單是表徵的媒介,李綾瑄離開了傳統雕塑的限制並返回繪畫的起點:顏色。在她的抽象概念中,顏色不只具有高度的吸引力,更重要的是它具有立體的存在。它可以不留情地侵入並征服空間。顏色通常純粹地被當做是一種創作元素,在李綾瑄的作品中顏色便是創作本身。它把物質歸納成形式,並以堆集的彩色物質破壞繪畫的外表。單純的二維實體頓時擴展轉變成一種繁複的三維形態。

《Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune》的標題明確地參照了法國作曲家德布西的傑出作品並通過色彩和物質的概念對繪畫創作作出探索。如果德布西在奏鳴曲中的音樂形態能夠描繪出不同的顏色和色調,那麼李綾瑄的繪畫便能夠更加扭曲纏繞這些純色彩形成非同凡響的雕塑。

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jane Lee (b. 1963, Singapore) holds a BA in Fine Arts and a Diploma in Fashion from LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts. She has held numerous exhibitions in Asia.

Lee’s work examines painting by pushing the limits of the materials and techniques used in painting. Through her use of unconventional materials and innovative techniques, her paintings highlight their processes, to draw attention to the way the paintings have been made or constructed and in so doing, reexamine painting’s significance and relevance for contemporary art practice. Lee’s works was shown in many exhibitions in the region and has won several awards, most recently the 2007 Sovereign Art Prize (finalist).

Lee is also the first recipient of the Singapore International Residency Art Prize in 2007 and her largest work to date ’Raw Canvas’, measuring 9.3m by 7.1m was showcased at Singapore Biennale 2008 and Collectors Stage at Singapore Art Museum in 2011.
