Thierry Feuz (Swiss,b.1968)

 

Thierry Feuz,瑞士日內瓦藝術與設計大學碩士 Haute École d’Art et de Design,居住與創作於日內瓦。在他的藝術世界中,藝術、科學、哲學是相遇的,他關心人類普世間共有的「存在」(Existence)之意義,並用獨有的繪畫技術呈現未曾可見之境。作品獲瑞士歷史與藝術博物館(Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Neuchâtel)、新加坡藝術基金會(Singapore Art Foundation)、瑞士銀行(UBS)、美國薩克斯第五大道精品百貨(Saks Fifth Avenue)等機構收藏 。

此次在 Bluerider ART 的亞洲首個展《Silent Winds》,展出 Thierry Feuz近年來的代表作品。描繪在不同的自然情境下,漫遊漂浮及持續動態的有機生命體,在黑暗中的 “Perfect Night Silva”、在雨後的 “After the Rain III”,在風中的 ” Silent Winds Panorama “,都像是存在十六世紀荷蘭藝術家Hieronymus Bosch 作品 “The Garden of Earthly Delights” (人間樂園)的紀元前,繽紛色彩的小宇宙,一步步走入這樣的性感風景,蘊藏了關於每個人生魔幻的時刻。

Thierry Feuz 是位不斷學習、累積知識型的藝術家。他的作品混和了多種繪畫基因,從靜物畫到抽象的表現,帶入各式各樣的藝術風格:從西班牙巴洛克時期細膩的靜物畫、Jackson Pollock的滴流畫、Joan Miró 的超現實主義、Cy Twombly的古典神話都可以看到一些 Feuz創作元素的端倪,而將具體之物放入虛實之間,正是 Feuz所擅長的,這是一種無法被定義的繪畫。這樣的境域表現,其實呼應著Feuz使用流體材料於畫布上的一種激進實驗,也因此他得以不斷延展及探索平面繪畫的可能性。另一系列作品” Technicolor Panorama Maverick ” 則以理性方式處理,以平流壓克力技法在畫布上堆出層層疊疊的水平線,創造了熱帶海面的空氣氛圍,自然世界的秩序及生命路徑,朝觀看者陣陣襲來。 

在極致性感嬌媚的外表下,存在著瞬間即逝的意涵,Feuz的作品輕易跨越了文化及抽象的界線,這些捲曲的花萼及微生物,在沒有邊界的空間中蔓延,驚奇的美景,背後暗示著這樣美麗的平衡可以在一瞬間消失。如同《詩經》中描述的蜉蝣之姿,生命如此短暫,絕對要活得絢爛。虛構的風景、豐饒的色彩、生命的律動,Thierry Feuz藉由繪畫作品、在沒有邊界及場域界定的時空中探問生命及存在的意義。

 

Artist Thierry Feuz (Swiss, b.1968) graduated with a Master’s degree from the Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design in Geneva, and currently lives and works in Geneva. Art, science, and philosophy meet in his art world. He is concerned about the significance of the “existence” of all the humankind around the world. His works have earned the honor of becoming part of the institutional collections of the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Neuchâtel, Switzerland, the Singapore Art Foundation, America’s Saks Fifth Avenue Enterprise and the United Bank of Switzerland (UBS).

Thierry Feuz’s first solo show in Asia “Silent Winds” at Bluerider ART presents classic series of work, depicting an organic living body that roams and wanders and continues to exist in a dynamic state in different natural circumstances. In the dark of Perfect Night Silva, in the post-downpour moments of After the Rain III, and in the wind of Silent Winds Panorama Montage, everything is as in the primordial state of The Garden of Earthly Delights by 16th century Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch, a microcosmic universe of riotous colours. Walking step by step into this seductive landscape contains moments within it about the magical transformation of each life.

Some clues to Feuz’s creative elements can be seen in the delicate still life paintings of Spain’s Baroque period, the drip paintings of Jackson Pollock, the surrealism of Joan Miró, and Cy Twombly’s classical mythology. Placing concrete objects between the real and the imagined is precisely what Feuz excels in. This is a kind of painting that defies definition.

In fact, this kind of expression of realms echoes a sort of his radical experiment in which fluid media materials are used on canvas, so he is able to continue to expand and explore the possibilities of 2-dimensional painting without interruption. Another series of works, Technicolor Panorama Maverick is approached in a methodical way. Stacks of horizontal lines of flow are created on canvas through a smooth-flowing acrylic technique, creating the warm, oxygenated atmosphere found above tropical seas. The order of the natural world and the path of life are projected towards the viewer in a series of continuous bombardments.

Under the superlative sensuality and appealing appearance, there exists a danger of fragility and also a sliding into debauchery. Feuz’s work easily spans the boundaries of culture and abstraction. These calyces and microbes spread outwards in a space without boundaries, full of contradiction. Here, astounding beauty and fragility coexist, with the implied suggestion that such a beautiful balance can be destroyed in an instant. Like the condition of a mayfly described in the Classic of Poetry, which is is born in the morning and dies at night, life is so brief that it has to be lived in brilliant splendour.

Through fabricated scenery, rich colors, and the rhythm of life, Thierry Feuz explores life and explores the meaning of human existence through his painting works. In the absence of boundaries and delineated realms, the significance of life and of death advance eternally in parallel.
