新闻稿

大卫·柯丹斯基画廊隆重推出:扎克·哈里斯(Zach Harris)新作品展“研究20/20”(Studies for 20/20)。展览将于2019年5月11日正式开幕,并持续至6月15日。开幕酒会将于5月11日星期六晚6-8点举办。

扎克·哈里斯是一位具有高度原创性的艺术创作者,他的创作植根于绘画、雕塑和建筑等诸多艺术传统。哈里斯的作品涉及大量的初步设想和各种媒介的准备性研究,他的绘画综合了他各方面的兴趣,特别隐涉绘画的历史和普遍的视觉文化,阐述着社会如何想象时间、神圣以及其他神秘的经验之构建。在本次展览“研究20/20”中,哈里斯反复使用数学理论,例如黄金分割和将一年划分为12个月的历法,形成了一系列连贯统一的作品整体,其中绘画和建筑像双螺旋结构的两条单链那样相互关联。

哈里斯绘画的原创性体现在他对雕刻木和镶嵌木的使用上,连同画布和其他材料一起,它们为颜料(主要为染色剂式的水性颜料)的即兴涂抹提供了根基和基本结构。哈里斯将复杂的激光切割形式进一步推进,使用刨槽机创造出起伏的浮雕效果,使之与叙事性图像构成对话,并在绘画中建立了绘画和框架的框架网络,将“高雅艺术”和“工艺”在不断演变的、自反的元叙事中综合融汇。他的作品参考了家常用品和空间的关系——虽然它们在传统绘画中随处可见,却被认为是与绘画分隔开来。

在“研究20/20”中,哈里斯以惊人的胆量挑战了雕塑的界限,通过创造大型雕塑改变了观众对画廊空间的感受。这些弧形形态由木材和精确切割的金属制成,高9英尺,它们激活了角落和墙壁的空间,为绘画提供了一个迥然不同的框架,在另一个尺度和其他叙事信息上与雕塑的几何形态和色彩关系相呼应。这个虚拟的、精心构建的世界营造出一种眼花缭乱的建筑悖论;思维和视觉的二维和三维模式同时发生。

在本次展览中,哈里斯赋予了绘画前所未有的开放性,它们广泛借鉴了设计、家具和建筑等系统,从一种科幻的视角探索这些门类的形式语言,并将之推向超自然的诠释。抽屉、地幔、钢琴、窗户和钟表仅仅是研究20/20”所展示的一部分原型。似乎是为了强调这些形式和制造它们所需要投入的精力,哈里斯甚至在一些绘画中嵌入了实际的层次(level);层次所承诺的完美和平衡的概念实际上已经在展览的标题中有所体现,它在字面和比喻的意义上指的是视力(“hindsight is always 20/20”——事后诸葛亮),以及未来日历年上召唤着我们自以为已知的未来世界的对称的、唤起记忆的数字。

哈里斯对于历史建立了一种转变的、非主流的视角,它们或与艺术有关,或更具普遍性,成为一些作品核心主题的推动力。例如,他的作品特别受到了加州美学传统的影响,展现了19世纪末和20世纪初艺术和工艺美术运动之间难以察觉的相似之处,以及其对上世纪60年代的建筑、设计及迷幻文化表达的影响。由此,哈里斯揭示了贯穿于西海岸创造性生活许多阶段的精神倾向,它们激活了他最新作品中的图像和手工艺的高度结合。哈里斯的绘画融合了描绘人类、动物、奇特生物的充满生机、技艺精湛的石墨画,几何、色彩理论的实验,以及他所使用的材料固有的视觉纹理。在构图中扮演了重要角色的木纹效果,反映了对自然世界的敏感性和对唤起过去的时代记忆之细节的关注,尽管这些绘画的主题往往带有末日色彩的未来主义倾向。

哈里斯以风格迥异的方式来描绘和展现时间。他的方法涉及古老的、纯手工的雕刻行为和当代的、数字化驱动的过程,后者使用激光来切割形式。与此同时,绘画的图像在与周围的雕刻元素在经过了长时间的协调后逐渐浮现出来。此外,哈里斯还更进一步在诸多作品间建立形式关联,比如始终贯穿在“研究20/20”中的基于黄金比例的精心构建的曲线(应用于西方艺术和建筑中的基本数学原则),便使观看的维度超越了单一的架上作品。

哈里斯对制作(making)的现象学和有意识的艺术观及其转变展开着持续的凝视。因此,公历的形式在他的作品中成为了一以贯之的主题,这种趋势在本次展览中达到了迄今为止的最高表达。通过将一年划分为月和将一个月划分为星期和天数的方法,他创造出各种扭矩网格;此外,他还加入黄道十二宫的符号,以扩充他的日历——这些神话人物提供了更多绘画可能性和深奥的推测。哈里斯对事实和想象的结合展现了一种感知,在这种感知中,想象与物质现实在平等的条件下共存。“研究20/20”是对即将来临的世界的考察:一个从现在看未来的版本,一个将要成为过去的当下之梦——就像从未来回看此刻一样。

扎克·哈里斯(1976年生于美国加利福尼亚洲圣罗莎)曾在诸多国际性艺术机构举办过个展,其中包括:佩罗坦画廊,巴黎和首尔(2017、2018);大卫·柯丹斯基画廊,洛杉矶(2013);马克思·普罗特画廊,纽约(2009);伊丽莎白·利奇画廊,波特兰,俄勒冈州(2009)。他近期参加的群展包括:“非正统”,纽约犹太博物馆(2015);“左岸:近期当代艺术收藏”,圣巴巴拉艺术博物馆,加州(2014);“轻触第三象限”,洛杉矶奥蒂斯艺术与设计学院的本· 马尔茨画廊和洛约拉玛莉曼特?学的拉班德画廊(2013);“洛杉矶制造”,哈默艺术博物馆,洛杉矶(2012)。他的作品永久收藏于以下公共艺术收藏:哈默艺术博物馆,洛杉矶;普林斯顿大学美术馆,新泽西州;圣巴拉拉艺术博物馆,加州。哈里斯目前在洛杉矶生活和工作。
