Desire Obtain Cherish | #yourkiddingright

Desire Obtain Cherish(D.O.C.,美國,1975年生)本名強納森•保羅(Jonathan Paul),現居住及創作於美國洛杉磯。2000年起以街頭塗鴉在藝術圈迅速竄紅,於美國各大藝術博覽會嶄露頭角,2015年D.O.C.受邀在威尼斯雙年展期間於著名的百夫長皇宮酒店(Centurion Palace)展出,2016年更受紐約第五大道精品百貨薩克斯(Saks Fifth Avenue)邀請合作,結合時尚與藝術展出其經典系列棒棒糖(Meltdown)裝置作品。D.O.C.別具一格的大膽創作手法使他深受資深藏家的喜愛,紐約文華東方酒店亦將其作品納為官方收藏。

畢業於世界著名設計學府紐約帕森設計學院(Parsons School of Design)的D.O.C.,創作結合街頭藝術、普普藝術、概念藝術及挪用藝術,呈現手法橫跨多樣媒材與型態,並以嘲諷和黑色幽默的態度挑戰觀者的價值觀著稱,試圖透過作品討論現代社會中關於性、性別、藥物、金錢、名氣以及社群網路等敏感議題。人稱「藝術壞痞子」的D.O.C.不僅在作品上顯露他對世俗文化的批判,也透過化名揭明現代社會對於慾望三階段的無限循環,「渴望(Desire)、獲取(Obtain)及珍惜(Cherish)」,The Armory Show總監班傑明•格努齊奧(Benjamin Genocchio)亦曾形容他「就像社會的良知,以美麗及誘人的外表包裹令人不悅的事實。」

不斷對當代藝術帶入新衝擊的D.O.C.透過一貫幽默諷刺的風格,以《#yourkiddingright》標註此次個展,展出多件首次於亞洲露面的作品。D.O.C.的創作由文字至圖像、平面作品至立體裝置,毫無框架侷限,挑戰觀眾對於藝術的既定印象,具有強烈視覺效果的創作背後,是對於社會現象的精準捕捉,同時也藉由作品的話題性引發觀者間的討論和反思。作品〈The Target Market〉,由直白的文字標語輔以浮華的金色背景,引出「這是藝術?」和隨即衝擊出的「甚麼是藝術?」概念激盪,多層次地引導觀者思考藝術的本質。D.O.C.作品雖具有十足的挑釁意味和深沉的意識探討,卻也因自嘲、自娛的態度使人會心一笑,藝術壞痞子的酷玩也將透過此次個展《#yourkiddingright》一覽無遺。
