Hogan Brown

 
 
藝術家霍根•布朗(英國,1966年生)以當代油彩繪畫著稱,現居住與創作於倫敦,於歐美擁有豐富的個展與群展經歷。布朗的創作擅以細膩的筆觸繪出人物與場域微妙的關係,故事性地架起畫面空間,同時也讓觀者的想像與詮釋住進留白之中。
 
布朗的美學觀點深受1950、60年代英國電影獨具的日常紀實手法影響,源於1950、60年代的英國電影,深受當時聚焦於日常生活的紀實手法影響,其創作透過童年的記憶和想像,暈染出如夢境般亦實亦虛的畫面,並以異常的場景尺幅模糊起人物主角的直覺判定,所帶出的寂靜獨寥成為激發想像的唯一聲響。復古基調亦是布朗創作上的另一特點,細膩處理每一筆觸的同時,低彩度的畫面更為觀者懸而未決的思潮覆上幾分神秘。布朗的作品如同電影的「定場鏡頭」交代故事的時空背景,讓觀者走進故事之中,卻不著墨進一步的發展,任憑心境自由延伸。
 
Hogan Brown (British, b.1966) was born in London. He studied Fine Art at Middlesex University. Since then he has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows throughout Europe and North and South America.
Hogan’s work contains mysterious and anonymous figures in what can seem stark environments yet a covert narrative emerges from the canvas. The empty spaces in the paintings are as telling and important to the work as much as the focal figures.
Brown uses traditional techniques, drawing and painting oil on canvas, to capture aspects of popular culture. Late series is drawn from cinematic influences, specifically films of the1960’s, which adds a retro character to his paintings, giving a narrative and intriguing quality to the subject he portrays.
