TAO YI 陶轶

陶轶:本色少年

文 | 张嗣

陶轶的新个展题目“本色少年”英文翻译成“Nature Boy”, 与他喜欢的一首曲子同名。

陶轶在此次展览上呈现出与上一次个展不同的是,对硬边抽象、 平面秩序有更多游离和破坏;使用粗粝或规整的线条对画面关 系进行调整甚至重置,这些在他之前的部分作品和手稿里已见 端倪。《A b h a y a 》( 2 0 1 6 ) 是一个大尺幅的系列作 品,“Abhaya”在梵语中意为“无畏”。其第5号作品中圆弧 形构成类似桥梁形象,弧形的边缘相互依靠暗示出纵深——通 行此岸与彼岸。在一幅新近创作的《无题》(2017)中,黑 色弧形粗线条覆盖了部分蓝绿色条纹,黑色的覆盖力与丙烯的 水溶性颜料质感加大了节奏变化,两根细线穿插协调,画面有音乐感。

在画大画前,陶轶通常先画草图以解除仪式感——紧绷的画布、 充沛的光线和绘画过程中必要的走动——带来的对人的压力; 而对中小幅作品他则直接进入正题,它们不超出艺术家胳膊的 运动范围,陶轶在画面中随时作出判断,作品出现更多生动的 场面。

阿瑟·C.丹托在1993年发表的《艺术终结后的艺术》是对他 本人《艺术世界》( 1 9 6 4 ) 一文的重新改写, 文中说 道:“关于今天的抽象绘画。因为它不再是任何人头脑中的历 史使命的载体,抽象绘画只是艺术家可以做的许多事的一 件。⋯⋯在抽象和形式主义之间仍有区别。我了解的一些最优 秀的抽象画家认为一个人成为抽象画家后并不是把意义抛在脑 后,通常那类不能为具象艺术表达的意义能够被抽象艺术传 达。”现在,抽象画更不再是作为进入格林伯格式艺术史的交 换物,像陶轶这样无功利的传达一些意义,很容易看到艺术家 的本色。

 

Tao Yi: Nature Boy

TEXT | Zhang Si

The new solo show of Tao “本色少年”(bense shaonian) is translated into “Nature Boy”, the same title with his favorite song.

Compared to last solo show, what Tao YI presents this time is more detachment and destruction to rigid abstraction and flat order; adjustment or even reconfiguration of the pictorial relationship through the application of rough or neat lines. Abhaya (2016) is a series of works with large scale. “Abhaya” means to be fearless in Sanskrit. In the work No.5, the Arcs form an image of bridge, and their edges rely on each other, which implies the depth that transcends between this world and that world. In his newly painted Untitled (2017), the dark curved lines cover partially the blue and green strips. The coverage of dark color and the texture of the water-soluble Propylene enhance the change of the rhythm; and harmonious interweaving of the two fine lines contributes to the musicality of the picture.

Before drawing a large painting, Tao Yi usually drafts to relieve the rituality–the pressure imposed on man by a tight canvas, the abundant light and the necessary moving during the process of painting. On the contrary, he gets right to the point when he draws small-medium painting. Because they do not go beyond the reach of artist’s arm, so that Tao Yi can make judgements about the picture at any time, hence more vivid scenes emerge in the art works.

Arthur. C. Danto Published the essay Art After the End of Art in 1993. It was rewritten based on his earlier essay The Artworld published in 1964. He said, regarding the abstract painting today, it is not the carrier of historical mission in anyone’s mind. It is just one of many things that artist can do……There still exists difference between abstract and formalism. As far as I know, some of the best abstract painters hold that one does not leave the significance behind after he becomes an abstract painter. Usually, abstract art is able to convey the kind of meaning that could not be delivered in figurative art. Nowadays, abstract painting is not an exchange to enter Greenberg’s art history any longer. Like artist Tao Yi, one could notice his nature very easily, since he transmits some significance without utilitarian purpose.
