紅野畫廊現正舉辦來自紐約的藝術家彼得.奧普海姆(Peter Opheim, b.1961-)個展,展期自3月9日至4月7日,觀者被邀請至奇幻且色彩繽紛的世界遊走,感受不同藝術維度的體驗。

此次「他她」-彼得·奧普海姆(Peter Opheim, b.1961-)在華人地區第二次的個展,除了延續個人的獨特創作風格,有著平面的立體感和鮮明色彩的畫作之外,更增添了藝術家對心靈世界的爬梳,讓作品詩化為一段段說不盡的故事。在創作自述裡,奧普海姆寫道:

Languishing in remembrances.
Distracted with forgiveness.
The temptation to allow everything to be ok.
The banishment of the alienation of regret.
Understanding one’s own literature of frivolity.

小生物透過藝術家的想像力獲得嶄新的生命,然而卻不能免俗地,和在一次次的新作發表中別離。在奧普海姆眼中,他看見這些生命體被描繪成旅途中的伴侶,就像在某個城市偶遇,隨後在下一站分別。他們曾經在藝術家生命裡活著,卻在記憶的時間洪流中逐漸衰微;他們既熱愛群居,每隻又是獨立的個體,渴望和諧的獨處。他們和藝術家的關係既緊密又疏離,在斑斕的油彩與色塊背後,都有自己的未來要去闖蕩。

回顧2018年,奧普海姆的展覽遍及台北、莫斯科、紐約、柏林、上海、波隆那及日本城市的巡迴,還有德國BMW車商、倫敦佳士得慈善及時尚室內設計雜誌的合作,如同空中飛人,一整年的飛行,如今再次飛來台北。忙碌之餘,異地生活經驗,也讓他的生命歷練飽滿。年近耳順的他,生活處事充滿慧黠,這也反映在他的作品,多了幾分詩意與豁達。

紅野畫廊作為一個專業藝術機構,長期將本地藝術家分享至世界各地,亦代理國際化程度很好的海外藝術家到華人地區,注入新鮮的藝術活水,使本地人有機會見識到藝術性高的另類風格作品。

Powen Gallery is currently holding a New York based artist Peter Opheim (b.1961-) Solo exhibition, starting from March 9th to April 7th. The viewers are invited to travel to the fantasy and colorful world to experience different artistic dimensions.

This time, “Him Her” is Peter Opheim (b.1961-) second solo exhibition in the Chinese region. In addition to continuing the individual’s unique creative style- a flat three-dimensional and vivid palette, it adds the artist’s reflection of the spiritual world, which makes the works an endless story. In the artist statement, Opheim wrote:

Languishing in remembrances.
Distracted with forgiveness.
The temptation to allow everything to be ok.
The banishment of the alienation of regret.
Understanding one’s own literature of frivolity.

Small creatures gain a new life through the artist’s imagination, but they can’t be excused from being separated from the release of new works. In the eyes of Opheim, he saw these “figures” portrayed as companions on the road, like encountered in a city, and then separated at the next stop. They used to live in the artist’s life, but gradually faded in the torrent of memory; they loved to live together, but each is an independent individual, longing for harmonic solitude. Their relationship with the artist is both close and alienated. Behind the colorful oil paint, they have their own future to go.

Looking back on 2018, Opheim’s exhibitions are held in Taipei, Moscow, New York, Berlin, Shanghai, Bologna, and Japanese cities, as well as German BMW car dealers, London Christie’s Charity and fashion interior design magazines. Opheim, who flew all year round, is now flying to Taipei again. His living experiences in different places also make his life saturated. As he is nearly 60 years old, his life is full of wisdom, which is reflected in his works – a bit more poetic and open-minded.

As a professional art institution, Powen Gallery has been sharing local artists with the world, and also represented foreign artists with good internationalization to the Chinese region. By injection of youth and creativity, local people have the opportunity to see high-quality alternative artworks.
