蒼野甘夏 日本畫展


~~~簡約而生動的美感~~~ 
一九七三年出生於北海道的蒼野甘夏,若想一言以蔽之其畫作特色,首先會在腦海裡浮現「凜.然.而.立。」這幾個字。簡約的畫面裡,築構著光鮮而生動的人物與動物,洋溢的格調,又具有充分的玩心,光是視覺上的觀賞,就令人感到心的怦然跳動。而藝術家主要圖案之外的描繪,則呈現極為記號化的表現,這樣的風格增添了一份酷勁,設計式的美感更是油然而生。此外,藝術家使用了天然礦物的粉末以及和紙等日本畫的傳統材料,但同時取法加入了現代化的圖樣與表現,使其畫作兼融了傳統與現代的和諧感。其得獎成績亦相當斐然:二〇一一年獲得損保JAPAN美術賞第30回之秀作賞;二〇一三年入選東京上野の森美術館二〇一三VOCA展;二〇一五年則入選上野の森美術館第6回「東山魁夷紀念 日經 日本畫大賞展」。 


~Aesthetics of Elegant Simplicity~ 
Born in 1973, the Hokkaido-based artist Amanatsu Aono is best known for her elegant and simplistic painting style. Her oeuvre primarily emphasizes on the vivid portrayals of human and animal subjects, mostly displayed in a playful yet intimate manner, as to visually invite the audience to engage with and appreciate the gracefulness of the characters. The minimalist compositions along with flattened lines and forms suggest a strong influence of Japanese visual culture, where these expressions have become symbolical elements of graphic designs. Aono’s masterful combination of modern painting techniques and traditional Japanese materials, such as organic mineral pigments and Japanese paper washi, results in artworks that present a harmonic visual balance between tradition and contemporary aesthetics. Aono has received various prestigious awards throughout her career: 2015 the 6th Kaii Higashiyama memory Nikkei Japanese paintings award exhibition, 2013 The Vision of Contemporary Art(VOCA), 2011 Sompo Japan Art Foundation selection Award: Excellent work prize
