台北日動畫廊隆重呈現國際知名藝術家賈奈娜 ‧ 查普於台灣舉辦的首次個人展覽「蒼藍天空下 描繪暗湧」。日動畫廊當代館自 2003 年開始與賈奈娜 ‧ 查普展開合作,在她二十多年來的藝術生涯中,賈奈娜 ‧ 查普持續透過攝影、錄像、繪畫和立體雕塑等,為現實風景創造嶄新的視覺想像。她的創作結合了精湛的技法與感性的思想,並藉由抽象的視覺語言,陳述豐富多元的女性形象、神秘迷人的海洋色調,以及多重有機的生物樣貌。此次在台北日動畫廊首次個展,邀請觀者透過她的系列新作穿透畫布,探索未知之域。

賈奈娜 ‧ 查普的繪畫創作常融合水、自然與人文等主題元素,並以一系列揉雜想像與現實的風景形象加以呈現。受到古老神話、自然更迭,以及海洋水域的神秘狀態所吸引,賈奈娜 ‧ 查普逐漸發展出由各種充滿明亮質地的幾何形態組成的抽象視覺語言。她作品中深具自我風格的構圖,不僅傳達出動態的感官經驗,那些有機多元的形象,以及筆觸揮灑所留下的記號,亦成為表露藝術家內在思想與情緒的關鍵符碼。

賈奈娜 ‧ 查普繪細緻入微的繪畫創作,是她對自然世界各種生長、汰換與轉變的視覺隱喻。這些畫作的特殊之處,在於其使用了水彩、酪蛋白顏料、色鉛筆及粉彩等多種媒材。藝術家透過精巧而細膩的手法,不厭其煩地將這些材料進行堆疊,以囊括浩瀚自然所傳遞的豐富訊息。賈奈娜 ‧ 查普的作品同時兼有一股散播於畫布各處的慵懶隨興與柔美詩意,以及一套層層堆疊、精準計算以整合視覺構圖的符號系統。如此微妙的平衡狀態正如自然本身,也讓賈奈娜 ‧ 查普的畫作,具有獨特而深厚的內在張力。台北日動畫廊誠摯邀請您一起進入藝術家在畫布上孕育的靜止時空—一處無論是混亂、痛苦還是喜悅之情,皆得以被完全展開的自由之地。

Janaina Tschäpe : Mapping the Undertow Under a Pale Blue Sky
Exhibiting Dates|2019. 01. 19 – 2019. 03. 09

galerie nichido Taipei proudly presents Mapping the Undertow Under a Pale Blue Sky, the first solo exhibition in Taiwan of renowned artist Janaina Tschäpe. nichido contemporary art has been collaborating with Janaina Tschäpe since 2003. Throughout her twenty-plus year career, Janaina Tschäpe has continued to explore, through multiple mediums, amorphous landscapes and their abundant luscious properties. Her artistry combines exquisite techniques with sensual thoughts; by using abstract visual languages, she expresses a flourishing creativity attune to earthly landscapes, ethereal female silhouettes as well as aqueous tones and biological forms. For her first solo exhibition at galerie nichido Taipei, the artist brings a series of new paintings that invites us to penetrate the existing canvases and explore the unknown sceneries created by the artist .

In her practice, Tschäpe often incorporates themes of aquatic, plant and human life to suggest dreamlike, abstract landscapes that blur perceptions of illusion and reality. Referencing interests in myth, morphology and the mysteries of aquatic states, she has developed a distinctive language of abstraction in which organic forms are imbued with a remarkable quality of luminosity. Her distinctive compositions convey a sensation of movement, their biomorphic shapes and gestural marks functioning as emotive signifiers of her interior thoughts.

Her carefully nuanced canvases and drawings include imagery evocative of the natural world suggesting growth, transition and metamorphosis. Tschäpe’s paintings in particular contain innumerable layers of information accrued through the meticulous application of media including watercolor, casein, colored pencil and pastel. There exists in her work the balance between the loose, luscious forms that pervade the canvas, and the precise systems of markings that often overlay and unify these compositions. This perfect balance is like nature itself, which is also why we could always feel a dynamic tension within Janaina Tschäpe’s powerful works. galerie nichido Taipei sincerely invites you to enter this stasis space skillfully created by the artist. An arena where chaos, pain and joy could be freely unfold.
