    香港大学美术博物馆于2019年1月8日至2月22日呈献傅文俊个人展览《相机绘画:傅文俊的摄影创作》。傅文俊的作品糅合了摄影的务实和各种视觉艺术的美感,透过摄影和其他艺术形式互相配合,把看似难以理解的讯息转化成平易近人的概念,反思历史与人文的各种问题。美国媒体72 Dragon Media从此次展览切入,撰文解析艺术家傅文俊的“数绘摄影”艺术创作历程。

    《空山新雨后》(2017-2018)

    黑色墨迹缓缓渗出,在画面的边缘卷进卷出。时而,流动的墨痕是雨、或梦或云。时而,印迹斑斑的墨痕,揉入丰富的色彩,表达对认知、身份和情绪等概念的看法。傅文俊的作品存在于阴影的盒子中,通常包含9块方格,以三乘三、距离墙面一英寸半的方式出现。如此布局已足够超越平面空间和视觉期待。他的艺术是浮动的,是被重新定义了的摄影,是变革了的数字摄影。你的大脑觉得图像应该是什么样的,他的作品常常挑衅你的看法。这便是傅文俊的风格,他的数绘摄影。
    作为领导中国当代艺术舞台最具革新力的艺术家之一,傅文俊的作品在纽约、巴黎、巴塞罗那、米兰、迪拜等地展出。不仅如此,他也是中国当代艺术市场的宠儿。东京都美术馆、法国国家美术家协会收藏了他的作品,亚洲、美国和非洲的多家博物馆同样珍藏他的艺术创作。
    他现代而抽象的艺术创作如同手套般自如地适应了在中国兴起的艺术舞台。而他来自一个出乎人们意料的地方。



    《红云》(2018)

    二战后的和平年代傅文俊出生在了中国重庆。这一时期,重庆与上海、北京、和天津比肩并称中国的四大都市。之后,傅文俊进入四川美术学院进行艺术专业学习。
    他在2009年的创作《回响》中,将挥之不去的被遗弃建筑物的抽象画面与国徽组合在一起,并置了经济废弃物与工业化所期许的繁荣。从他的先期作品中便能感受到他无畏于直面现代文化的伪善。



    《他心通》No.7 (2009-2011)

    2010-2011年傅文俊将数字摄影与拼贴艺术结合起来。在《他心通》作品中他借助X射线拍摄人体头颅,并将大脑空间置换为佛教造像。2012年在作品《信手拈来》中他运用混合的艺术语言,创造出糅合讽刺性文化符号的新图像。幽默的创作最终带来了质疑文化身份和“自我”认知的作品。傅文俊的创作持续进行,他很多产,同时不断推进艺术跨界,特别是油画、水墨、雕塑和数字摄影的交错跨越。
    他的作品越来越多地介入文化影响和文化批判。个人的游历体验对作品呈现主题有着一定的影响。
    “我喜欢游历,也常常游历。每一次的出行都是一份经历,一个遇见新的、不同事物的过程。对我而言更重要的是,在这一过程中能更深入地了解自己,重新更深度地反思至今为止的多种生命体验、社会经历、文化思考等等。”


    《红酥手》(2017-2018)

    此次由香港大学美术博物馆呈献的展览《相机绘画:傅文俊的摄影创作》,展出了《红酥手》《空山新雨后》《小楼昨夜又东风》《大珠小珠落玉盘》等一系列独具特色的作品。非常值得花费一下午的时间去好好研究这位艺术大师的创作,它们会刷新你对摄影和艺术的认识。但傅文俊并未止于此,他在新作中还在进行构成形式方面的研究。在系列作品《问茶》中,艺术家表示作品“呈现中国老式茶馆的物件与环境,并在美学上探索几何化形式构成的问题”。
    文化议题继而在新作《F1》中延续。他告诉72龙媒体,“作品是由水墨、白描与淡彩组织起来的主题人像,并与原始照片生成对比,我鼓励观看者去询问和思考眼前图像背后的事物。去年参观F1阿布达比大奖赛给了我创作这组作品的启发。”


    《混沌初开》2017-2018

    显然他越来越将自身的经历与外部世界的影响更加紧密地结合在创作中。他的作品,如水墨般从画布上渗出,有时融合并模糊了周边环境,有时又与其形成鲜明对比。
    傅文俊很高兴能在香港展出自己的作品。
    “我让中国传统文化与不断革新的摄影艺术在作品中相遇。而香港则是一座东西方文化相遇并交融的都市……”因此,展出和欣赏傅文俊的作品在香港是再适合不过的地方了。
    展览在香港大学持续展出到2019年2月22日。

    HONG KONG HOSTS FU WENJUN EXHIBIT, FATHER OF DIGITAL PICTORIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
    Susan Morgan

    Bleeding black ink, swirls on and off the borders of the page. In some instances, the running ink is rain, or dreams, or wind. In some instances, the smeared and smudged ink, muddled with rich colored paints, are concepts of perception, identity and emotions. The works of Fu Wenjun lives in shadow boxes, usually containing 9 square sheets, placed three by three only an inch and half away from the wall. That is enough space to create transcendence over space and the eye's expectations. His art floats. It is Photography redefined. It is digital photography revolutionized. Wherever your mind thinks the image should end, his work defies you. This is Wenjun's style. This is Digital Pictorial Photography.
    Leading the way as one of the most innovative artists in China's contemporary art scene, Wenjun's work has shown in New York, Paris, Barcelona, Miami, Milan and Dubai. And this is not a full recounting. He is a darling of the Chinese Contemporary art market. His work is collected by the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and Société Nationale des Beaux Arts of France. He is also in countless museums throughout Asia, Africa, and the US.
    His modern and abstract art fits effortlessly, like a glove, into the art scene emerging in China, but he comes from a rather unexpected place.
    Fu Wenjun was born in Chongqing, China during a time of peace in a country in the process of healing from the 2nd Sino-Japanese war. During these formative years, Chongqing was becoming one of the four main municipalities under China's central government alongside Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin. He went to Sichuan Fine Arts Institute.
    His first main exhibit was "Echo" in 2009. The collection was made up of haunting abstract paintings of abandoned buildings accompanied by the Chinese National Emblem creating a juxtaposition between the economic waste and spending of an authoritarian government and the prosperity promised in industrialization. From his very first exhibit, it was very clear he was fearless in his ability to confront modern culture's hypocrisies.
    In 2010 - 2011 he combined digital photography with montage art design. In "Thought Reading" his process included taking radiology x-rays of the human skull and replacing the brain space with Buddhist sculptures. In 2012, he followed with his next exhibition, "Pick at Random." This time he experimented with mixing art languages and creating new images combining iconic cultural symbols. This was a playful process, but the resulting works questioned cultural identities and our perception of the "self." And there is no slowing down for Fu Wenjun. His work keeps coming. He is prolific and continues to push the intersectionality of art, painting, inking, sculpture and digital photography.
    His work has become more and more entangled with cultural influence and criticism. The topic that most influences his work is his connection to travel.
    "I like travelling and travel a lot. Every journey is an experience, a process of meeting something new, something different. What's more important, it's a process of understanding more about myself and of rethinking more profoundly of what I have experienced up ‘til now."
    Some of his best works are at The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong in his newest exhibit "Digital Brush: The Photographic Process of Fu Wenjun." Some of the works featured are "Soft Hands," "Fresh Rain in the Mountain," "East Wind Blew Again Last Night" and "Dancing Notes." All four are masterpieces worthy of an afternoon studying the master's process and recontextualizing your definitions of Photography and Art.
    But he is far from done exploring these ideas. In his new works, he takes on more structural forms. In one of his new series, "Ask Tea" Wenjun explains that the works "display the objects in the environment of an old-style Chinese teahouse, and aesthetically explores a composition of geometric shapes."
    Meanwhile his work with culture continues in his new "F1" series. He told 72 Dragons Media that "the works are thematic portraits with ink painting, line drawing and light color in contrast to original photos, with the attempt of encouraging viewers to ask and think the facts behind the images in front of them. [The Inspiration] coming from my last year's visit to F1 Abu Dhabi race."
    It is clear that his newer works grow richer with context to his own Chongqing upbringing and the influence he has met with the outside world. His work, much like the ink that appears to bleed from the canvas, is sometimes blending and blurring with its surroundings and other times standing in sharp contrast to them.
    This is what has Wenjun so excited about showing in Hong Kong.
    "My work is a place where the spirit of Chinese traditional culture encounters the photographic art that keeps innovating. Hong Kong is a city [where] the Eastern and the Western culture meet and blend…" For this reason alone, there is no better place to exhibit his work and to admire it.
    The exhibit is showing at the University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong and will run until February 22, 2019.
