Faces of Light


潔西卡.芮娜(Jessica Rayner,英國,1985年生)畢業於全球頂尖藝術設計學府─英國皇家藝術學院(Royal College of Art),主修繪畫與印刷藝術(printmaking),豐富的創作訓練背景使芮娜靈活運用各類媒材於不同主題中發揮,2012年以新秀之姿入圍德意志銀行(Deutsche Bank Awards)十大潛力年輕藝術家,近年常於北歐各國進行多項光影創作計畫,亦曾於冰島拍攝地球能源耗損情況與氣候變遷議題的作品《Metabolic Landscape》,關注光影、科學與自然的探索。

 

「我們以為世界是我們雙眼所見的模樣,事實是我們的意識賦予我們的所見意義。」成長於英國倫敦的芮娜,在旅行冰島、挪威與格陵蘭等極北地區期間,經過截然不同的感官體驗,始投入自然環境相關題材創作,並聚焦於光與個體感知的互動與關係。「光」使我們得以見著世界豐富的形色,「知覺」的處理則賦予眼前的事物不同的意義,而透鏡的應用使我們有機會放大視覺觸及的可能,看見更多的未知,芮娜的系列創作即以此為出發,利用不同質性透鏡、稜鏡或自然介質使光發散,紀錄下光行進的肌理與其繽紛光譜,將看似尋常的物理狀態進行解構,突破我們視覺與知覺想像,並藉由攝影、繪畫、異材質印刷、立體裝置等不同的媒材表現,給予觀者全新體驗,由不同的視角望向我們習以為常的事物。

 

在看似冷調的創作概念背後,實為藉由無形的光影探討我們感知最深層的意識,芮娜的作品如同自然與科學不斷地相應對照。首度來台個展以《Faces of Light》為題,由八件系列作品揭示光的多樣面向,將觀者置身於稜鏡發散多彩的一端。展出作品Afterimage以拍立得(polaroid)拍攝一天四個時間點下光線於晶體中的折射變換,於時刻流轉間捕捉光與色彩;An Awareness of Light系列使用具極佳聚光特質的菲涅爾透鏡(fresnel lens)蒐集環境光線,並透過特殊印刷技術將成像印製於鋁板上,鋁板柔和的金屬質地不僅映出光的爛漫色澤,同時也使觀看當下的光源融入作品本身。「與現在相較,或許孩提時期的我們對於自然有更多的好奇與想像,而這也是藝術與科學發展的原因,我也想藉由創作與我的疑問進行對話」,芮娜不僅以有限的知覺探索無垠的議題,更讓他的憧憬引領我們往未知邁進。


Jessica Rayner received her Master of Art from prestigiousRoyal College of Art. Majoring in printmaking and painting provides Rayner multipleresources to create with different materials. In 2012, Rayner was included as afinalist in Deutsche Bank Awards which uncovered her potential in contemporaryart. Recently, she works on several light projects in Nordic countries and continues her investigations into the propertiesof lenses, prisms, light and human perception.

 

“We think wesee the world directly,” says Jessica Rayner, “but it’s the mind that providesmeaning to what we see.” While traveling toIceland, Svalbard and Greenland, Rayner was exposed to different perspective towardsnature apart from her personal experience growing up in London. She began to examine the science, technology and energy of ‘things’, and focuses on ‘light’and ‘human perception’. By adopting a wide range of media, includingphotography, drawing, video, printmaking and three-dimensional sculpture, sheoffers stories of origination, discovery, scientific analysis and socialmeaning. Granting viewers another point of view to see the world.
