ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever.

I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

当代表现艺术的逍遥避世  
by
3/31/15 Posted 3/31/15

当代表现艺术的逍遥避世 时代阴影的真实将由烙在个人生命体上的累累伤痕如实地展开,犹如表现主义之箭在穿透我们的生命之后,在身体的伤口处开放而出的冷冽凄艳的真我之花,在每个时间的节点留下灵魂因抵抗而创伤的痛楚。在此,表现主义和我们真实而苦难的人生已很难分开,它像影子一样跟随着我们精神的成长与表达,由年轻到中年,直到衰老,最后将在黑夜中倾向大地深处,而表现主义的灵魂将会长存下去。犬儒主义艺术的危害性在于它纵容了极权宰制的肆无忌惮。中国历朝统治者,只要平常不忘“杀鸡儆猴”,关键时“打出头鸟”,便足可保证天下太平了,这两招都不灵之日,也就是他们大势已去之时。历代文人的思想和生活逃不出“三纲五常”和“避世养生”的藩篱,他们崇信“三纲五常”是为了维系家天下以及后嗣香火的延续,“避世养生”的消极处世哲学,其社会行为后果则让他们“拔一毛以利天下而不为”。正是这两种极端的政治哲学和人生哲学决定了中国社会难以建立现代理性的公正秩序。然而,当代中国艺术仍在倡导远离现世、规避权力、趋炎附势的审美传统,这种黎明前的一片黑暗让人深感刺骨的寒冷。表现主义作为西方现代艺术的一个重要流派,在上世纪八十年代初重新传入中国,由于当时的人们正处在精神启蒙的空白状态,受着很少的资讯和幼稚解读能力的制约,表现主义只缓慢影响到少数敏感且精神无比饥渴状态的忧郁气质的画家。大多数画家从形式和心理上更容易接近和模仿达利式的超现实主义,这类绘画似有梦幻意境的错乱故事情节又有具体形象可看,能够很好的发挥学院的写实技术。因此也是由文革以来的描绘外在生活场景的现实主义题材(包括后来的伤痕美术),转向对人的内在心理深度描述的现代性艺术意识的便利捷径。而表现主义对艺术家激情状态下有魄力的精神直觉力,以及自我分裂状态下内在深度的艺术语言的敏感表述并到位要求很高,在中国还需要一个实践和认知的过程。这样长期以来,以现实主义故事性场景描述为主的绘画意识,随表现主义的传入而逐步拓展出了绘画作为绘画自身的更具能量的语言系统,即绘画性的强调,使作品中的色、线、形在个性化的语言支配下释放出更大的视觉冲击力,至此人们手上有了更好的现代性的文化批判的武器。在精神属性上,表现主义的个人英雄主义式的真实自由而直接有力的表达方式,极为有效地使生命意志中的痛苦和绝望,灵魂深处的咆哮与反抗视觉性的爆发出来,它似针刺般锐利的寒光,直逼这个极为不适的包裹并压迫着我们生命体的社会现实。 中国文化中需要表现主义吗?中国文化的精神里需要一场彻底的表现主义艺术运动来清除其对“人与现实”关系的真实遮蔽吗? 需要一次真正求真的追问来清洗我们几千年来的艺术中早已麻木的灵魂?以揪出我们已隐埋于历史背后的真实的嘴脸?这里的真实就是指对人与社会真相的暴露。表现主义精神的艺术家对社会的作用尤其...

毕加索一件破损后修复油画竟卖出1.55亿美元 对冲基金经理史蒂夫·科恩 毕加索的《Le Rêve》 纽约著名的亿万富翁收藏家、对冲基金经理史蒂夫·科恩的公司爆出“内幕交易”丑闻,并且面临着巨额罚单,但就在这时候,却传出科恩以1.55亿美元的价格买下一件毕加索的消息。这是来自《纽约邮报》的报道,其消息来自一位匿名知情人士的爆料。该报道说,科恩从赌场大亨史蒂夫·韦恩(Steve Wynn)手中买下了毕加索的《Le Rêve》,这件1937年的作品同样是毕加索根据其情妇完成的一件肖像画,而1.55亿美元是美国收藏家为一件艺术品支付的最高价格。 科恩和韦恩都是亿万富翁和著名的艺术收藏家,都有收藏毕加索某些特定时期作品的兴趣。而这件《Le Rêve》是韦恩2001年从佳士得拍卖行以4200万美元买下的。围绕着这件作品,还有一个戏剧性的情节。在2006年的某一天,韦恩拿出这件作品来秀给朋友们看,结果,他的胳膊肘不小心撑破了画面,一件这么贵的画裂开了一道口子,...

人体艺术是对真善美的追求  
by
3/31/15 Posted 3/31/15

人体艺术是对真善美的追求 人们已经看到,人体审美在当代的走红,必然使"性" 的问题受到世人的瞩目"性"在当代再一次成为关注的焦点,这确实是当代社会的一个令人争议的奇观。但因此把性排除在美之外,也是不妥的。从根本上说,性与 美应该是一致的,美的内涵就是性的内涵。就人体审美而言,美在很大程度上只是性的一次有预谋的演出,只是性的浪漫化,或者说,是性的羞耻化、神秘化的幻化。因此,承认性在审美活动中的正当地位,正是当代审美文化的一大功绩。可能正是由于历史的压抑,人类某些先天的本能,在女性那里得到了封闭式的静止保存,未受到文明的浸染。而这,正应当是人类在未来世纪的根基与性格。尽管柏拉图在他的理想国中,仍然把女人置于从属的地位,但他早就高瞻远瞩地说过:女人自然本质中有多少不如男人的地方,就有多少优越的地方。对于现代人来说,性的观念正在逐渐发生着变化,人体本是所有原本纯净的灵魂。 马奈的《草地上的午餐》,1863年的法国“落选沙龙”上,拿破仑三世与皇后被马奈的《草地上的午餐》气坏了,尽管他们见过了数不清的裸体的维纳斯女神,可是拿破仑三世和皇后还是认为将普通的裸体贵妇放在巴黎绅士中间的画作《草地上的午餐》是“不道德”的。其实,遭到非难的原因在于马奈的画中将女神变 成了现实生活中的普通人。撕开了古典的...

东去春来 兆丰的瑞雪在年前, 洒向这个干燥又漫长的, 冬季末尾春初的时间。 东风强硬的将冰封的空气穿刺, 荡悠悠铺盖为际天覆地的林海。 飘扬弹奏出大地的主旋律, 成为生运气动的主体。 宣告绿色为天下永恒的盛行色, 生命神机勃勃的伟大博力, 绿在东风里主宰了一切。 早春冬的末了恪守着, 无法实现的最后希望。 千古壮志如磐云极重, 宣告一个即将竣事的年份快要拉上帷幕。 我们检核此行回首一年的行程, 会为我们的奋斗耕作而无憾无悔。 [more]

Horth for Robin Rile Fine Art 2015 Estate of Pablo Picasso/Artists Rights Society (ARS),New York A few days ago, my wife’s Linkedin Profile boasted this photo of Pablo Picasso’s 1955 masterpiece “Les Femmes d’Algers, Version O“, which is estimated to fetch over $140m at the upcoming Christie’s New York auction on 11 May.

The Burghers of Calais Image from Bouville series and text below is from article in magazine Less Common More Sense, which retells the story of an interaction during the gagging of the Burghers of Calais (outside the Houses of Parliament - London) . Generally speaking it is a cunning plan to climb up onto and off statues as quickly as possible, so I was relatively unimpressed when I head an old voice behind me saying, 'Is this a protest?' 'Not really' I replied politely, as I hung precari... [more]
