「邪悪會議」- 中田郁美 個展

“Evil Meeting" Ikumi NAKADA's solo exhibition

展期 Date ∣ 2017/05/20 ~ 2017/06/04

「雖然我經常藉由小孩的形象表達害羞和厭惡的情緒,但不知不覺隨著時間的流逝,我發現自己和這些孩子已經沒有了連結。不過即使如此,在我心中那些無法安葬的幼稚情緒還是偶爾會像幽靈一般忽然出現,不經意地像小孩子一樣想要惡作劇,我在想這些事情時的表情會有多邪惡呢?現在只希望在這些情緒的背後還是有愛的!」

中田 郁美為睽違三年在台個展寫下的自述傳達這段期間創作心境的轉變,有別於三年前的個展向童年幻影宣告性、儀式性的真摯告別,中田 郁美看待兒時趣憶的心境已然抽離,拉遠的視角和情境下,偶一時間再次出沒的稚趣心情更顯獨別。

擅長描繪孩童的神情,中田 郁美透過和紙面油彩繪製如膠彩一般色澤質地,既保留藝術家喜愛紙張陳舊的時間感,也突顯其細膩的線條掌握。中田 郁美勾勒一幕幕令人莞爾的幼年記憶,轉化大和民族舊時諺語、古玩以及對回憶的另類解讀,體現不復存的童年時光。扁平的構圖方式弱化人物的肌理表現和人物實體量感為其創作重要表現形式特徵。

藝術家中田 郁美 (1982),目前創作、生活於崎玉,2016年發行首部單行本,展覽活躍於日本、美國、台灣、上海,自2012年來台展覽,因自我風格與辨識度高,色彩溫潤柔和的質感廣受藝術愛好者喜愛與典藏。

"In spite that I often find myself resorting to childish forms and images to convey feelings of shyness or disgust, but unbeknown to me as the time ticks away, I now realize that the ties shared between these children and I are no longer present.

But in spite of this, those juvenile feelings that never enjoyed a proper burial in my heart often suddenly appear like specters, inadvertently wanting—like children—to pull off many a mischievous trick, how evil become my facial expressions when my mind is allowed to dwell on such things?

Now all I hope for is that behind these feelings there still remains affection! "
