简介:

2015年5月,应F画廊邀请,并由Brlan Merel策展,英杰在芝加哥举办第一次个人画展。本次画展《大地之灵》为期一个月, 一共展出18件历时两年完成的纸本水墨作品。这次画展不仅是对过去十几年习画的一次对话与总结,也是对未来创作的展望。人类的过度发展和全球气候变暖导致环境受到严重的损害,他希望通过展现大自然濒临灭绝动物不同形态的一面,表达个人情绪与对自然的关心,呼吁人们给这些即将消失的生灵更多的关注与尊重。

 

Introduction: 

In May 2015, at the invitation of Galerie F and curated by Brlan Merel, Yingjie held his first solo exhibition in Chicago. This exhibition "Earth Spirit" lasted for one month and had prepared for two years. A total of 18 ink paintings on paper of his were exhibited. It was not only a dialogue and summary of his works in the past ten years, but also a prospect of creation in future. The excessive development of human beings and global warming have caused serious damage to environment. Through showing different situations of endangered animals in nature, Yingjie expressed personal emotion and concern about nature, so as to call for people to pay more attention and respect to these disappearing creatures.

《燎原》以西伯利亚虎为原型创作。老虎在草原向前迈步,眼神望看前方。你能透过细节看到老虎眼里的烈火在燃烧,火花从它的身躯飘过。这幅作品既是英杰纪念当下自己重要成长的真实写照,亦是对老虎抽象创作的开始。

 

"Tiger in Fire" based on the Siberian tiger. The tiger steps forward on the steppe, looking ahead. You can see the fire in its eyes and the spark is flashing around its body. This work is not only a true portrayal of Yingjie's growth at present, but also the beginning of creating tiger in an abstract way.

除了纸本的作品,英杰这次还在芝加哥唐人街创作了这幅长40米高3.3米的《龙游四季走天下》。色调代表春夏秋冬四季,一条水墨长龙贯穿其中,寓意着全球华人游走在世界的每一个地方艰辛创业,从冬天一步步走向春天。


In addition to the paper work, Yingjie also created a 40-meter-long and 3.3-meter-high " Dragon Travels throughout the Seasons and Walks into Every Corner of the World" in Chicago Chinatown. The scenario defines in four-color, works on behalf of four seasons, "Spring", "Summer", "Autumn" and "Winter". A long line of ink draws through them, meaning Chinese are global. They are in every place around the world and work extremely hard in every step to success from Winter to Spring.
