傅文俊接受全球艺术奖专访

    “全球艺术奖”作为国际性的视觉艺术奖项,其创立是为了表彰全世界内表现突出的艺术家、画廊和艺术专业人士在视觉艺术领域所做出的成就和积极贡献,向杰出艺术家颁发“最佳全球艺术家”称号,并让他们的艺术事业获得公众的更多了知与关注。2018年中国当代艺术家傅文俊获得“全球艺术奖最佳全球艺术家”提名,全球艺术奖特对其进行了专访,与艺术家谈论艺术经历、艺术思考和创作等等,专访翻译如下:


    能与我们谈谈您被提名“全球艺术奖”的作品吗?

    这次被提名“全球艺术奖”的作品有两件,一件是《迪拜的鱼》,还有一件是《混沌初开》。这两件作品都是以我提出的数绘摄影艺术风格创作的摄影艺术作品。我的数绘摄影,除了很容易从画面中感受到的美感之外,我在创作的时候,通常会在作品中融入我个人对全球或是某一地区的历史、文化、人类生活等方面的思考与反思。我从迪拜的展览回来后,创作了这件《迪拜的鱼》:我反反复复地想着那里的鱼、水和沙漠中崛起的现代都市,人有能力改变自然的面貌,而他也能改变存在于地球上上万年的自然的本质吗?

    成为“全球艺术奖”的提名艺术家感受如何?

    2018年4月,我的数绘摄影作品第一次在迪拜举行的“世界艺术迪拜”艺术博览会上展出。许多人跟我说,你的作品不可思议,非常有意思。有些人也非常好奇这些作品是如何创作出来的,因为他们以前从来没看过这类型的艺术作品。无论我的作品是在我的祖国中国,还是在美国、西班牙、德国、意大利等国家,人们常常有类似的反应。2017年,中国最具影响力博物馆之一的中国美术馆(北京)为我举办了个人展览,欧洲重要博物馆欧洲现代艺术博物馆(巴塞罗那)也在同一年举办了我的数绘摄影作品个人展览。我的多件数绘摄影作品已经成为它们的永久馆藏。2018年10月,美国的一家艺术机构也将为我推出数绘摄影作品个展。我想,这些来自美术馆和公众的一致的认可不是巧合。作为“全球艺术奖”的提名艺术家我感到信心满满。


    是什么在驱动你?

    简单说来,是对艺术的热情驱动着我,一股持续的并且不断增长的热情。在中国大多数的男性公民六十岁退休。中国文化将六十岁被称为甲子,是生命的一轮,也意味着六十岁以后进入到生活的另一个阶段。对我而言,我一点不希望退休。相反,我日复一日地做着艺术创作,停不下来。我在过往岁月中获得的经验、知识、感悟成为我的财富和创作的灵感。越来越大的热情让我做得更好,有时我甚至觉得休息都是一种浪费时间。

    你如何处理艺术家的瓶颈阻碍?

    我想每一位艺术家都会遇到瓶颈期的问题,即使是毕加索这样的杰出艺术家。个人而言,当我发现自已出现了这样的状况,便不会再苦苦坚持。换个脑子,做一些让自己感到放松的事,比如看看电影、散散步。或者索性开启一趟旅行,去那些我感兴趣很长时间的地方看看。有时我也会读艺术史方面的书籍或者伟大艺术家的画册。让自己拥有足够的时间去放松,之后便能充满能量地走出低谷,创作出更美妙的作品。


    你认为十年以后你的艺术会走向何方?

    毫无疑问在接下来的十年我会继续从事当代艺术,特别是致力于数绘摄影的创作。我一直认为摄影作为艺术,在艺术创作方面具有很大的潜力和可能性。现在很多人并没有意识到这点,或许是因为摄影是一种记录的工具,这样的认识很广泛、很普遍地被人们认可,特别是在拍照功能智能手机普及的今天。如今我关注地是摄影艺术与其他艺术形式的对话,比如中国画、油画、雕塑等等,以此来拓宽摄影艺术在数码时代的边界。最新的一些数绘摄影作品将在9月和10月的“影像上海艺术博览会”和香港“典亚艺博”上展出。最近我正在做一些研究,希望给我的作品增添新的可能性,让我们拭目以待。在未来的十年,我希望持续地为数绘摄影带来更丰富的内容和内涵,以及更为多样的表现方式。


    FU WENJUN - DIGITAL PICTORIAL PHOTOGRAPHY. NOMINATED GLOBAL ART AWARDS 2018
    Fu Wenjun(傅文俊), Chinese contemporary artist, was graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. He creates principally through the art media of photography, installation, sculpture and oil painting. Fu Wenjun has developed his unique fine art photography style: Digital Pictorial Photography (数绘摄影).
    With his Digital Pictorial Photography, Fu Wenjun turns away from the recording function of photography commonly acknowledged by the public, and aims at exploring to place photography art in dialogue with other art media, like Chinese painting, oil painting, sculpture etc, as a result to widen the boundary of photography art in the current digital age.
    His solo exhibitions were presented at National Art Museum of China, Museu Europeu de Arte Moderno, Guangdong Museum of Art etc.

    Tell us about your nominated art piece for the Global Art Awards?
    This time for the Global Art Awards, two pieces of my artworks are nominated, entitled separately “Dubai Fish” and “Origin”. They are fine art photography artworks presented in an innovative and pioneering style of Digital Pictorial Photography that I put forward. In the Digital Pictorial Photography artworks, apart from the aesthetical beauty you could feel easily from the image, while creating the works, I consciously to express some of my thinking and reflection and on the global or regional history, culture, human life and so on. After I went back from an exhibition held in Dubai, I created the work “Dubai Fish”: fish, water and the city landscape surrounding by deserts leads to think over and over again, if human is capable to change the aspect of nature, could he change also the essence of nature existed for hundreds and thousands of year on the planet?

    How does it make you feel that you are a nominee for the Global Art Awards?
    In April 2018, for the first time my works of Digital Pictorial Photography were shown in Dubai on the occasional of World Art Dubai art fair. Many people told me that your works were fascinating and very interesting. Some were curious about how the works were created because they never saw this sort of artworks before. People always have the same reaction when my works presented no matter in my home country China, or overseas, like the USA, Spain, Germany, Italy. In 2017, two solo exhibitions were held by National Art Museum of China (Beijing), one of the most influential art museums in China, and Museu Europeu de Arte Moderno (Barcelona), one of the most important museums in Europe. Several pieces of my Digital Pictorial Photography artworks are among their permanent collection. In the upcoming October 2018, an American art organization will present another solo exhibition of my Digital Pictorial Photography. I believe the unanimous acknowledgement of my art from art museums and the public is not occurred by chance. I am a confident nominee for the Global Art Awards.

    What drives you?
    Well, in short, is the passion for art that drives me, a lasting even growing passion. In China most male citizen take retirement at the age of sixty. In Chinese culture, sixty years are regarded as a circle of life, which means after the accomplishment of sixty years old, one step into another stage of life. For me, I have no willing to get retired at all. But on the contrary, I can’t stop myself spending day by day to do my art. My experience, knowledge, insight acquired from the past has become a treasure and inspiration for the creation. More and more passion drive me to do better, and make me believe sometimes even the rest is a waste of time.

    How do you deal with artist's block?
    I think every artist will encounter the same problem of block, even the best ones like Picasso. Personally when I realize it, I will not insist any more. Change the mind, do something make me feel relax, like watching movies, taking a walk. Or even go to have a trip, visit some places interest me for a long time. Sometimes I will also read books of art history or catalogs of great artists. Give yourself enough time to get completely relax, and then you will be filled with energy to break through the block and create something wonderful.

    Where do you see your art going in ten years?
    There is no doubt in the ten years I will continue to work on contemporary art, especially Digital Pictorial Photography. I always believe photography as art, has great potential and possibility in art creation. Many people have not realized it maybe because photography has been so widely and commonly acknowledged as a tool to record our world, especially in current days almost everyone has a smart phone to take photos. Currently I focus on placing photography art in dialogue with other art media, like Chinese painting, oil painting, sculpture etc, so as to widen the boundary of photography art in the current digital age. My latest Digital Pictorial Photography, emphasizing on the relation of photography with painting and sculpture, will be presented at PHOTOFAIRS|Shanghai and Fine Art Asia in September and October. Recently I am doing some research and try to make new possibilities in my works. Let’s see how is going on. In the ten years, I hope to constantly provide Digital Pictorial Photography richer content and meaning, and diverse presentation methods.
