武明中是21世纪初跻身于中国当代艺坛的“全球地方主义”代表艺术家之一,他所创造的“玻璃人”形象绘画,独树一帜。千禧年伊始,随着全球化进程的日益加剧,喜洋洋的消费主义开始在中国社会生活中盛行,武明中敏锐地捕捉到这一时代精神和问题所在——物质性和脆弱性,开始对个人与社会、人性与物欲、脆弱与永恒等命题展开新的艺术追问。人的血肉之躯被坚硬而又脆弱的玻璃所取代,温暖、亲密的肉身变得冰冷、陌生且刺眼;鲜艳的红色透过画布,不仅释放出一种警示的视觉冲击,更让观者产生一种迷离的、冲动的眩晕之感。这不禁让人们联想到当代社会:纸醉金迷,令人看不到自己。面对这样的外部环境,武明中仿佛一名时代和社会的隐忧者,他静静地躲在画作背后,描绘并质问着自己所看到的一切。


近年来,武明中的创作主题由外部世界转向到个人的内心,他从中国传统文脉和绘画中获取灵感,聚焦自己在特定生命阶段的个人状态与心灵感悟。梁楷的《六祖斫竹图》、石恪的《二祖调心图》、牧溪的《六个柿子》、《两个西瓜》和《两只猴子》成为他托物抒怀的凭籍;新近创作的“内观”系列,原先玻璃人像中的红色被抽离,只剩下晶莹、透亮的玻璃躯壳,私密、孤独的形象被置于天地、时空中,与迫在眉睫的生命境况相对峙,在目光、情绪、意识的流动中联结又彼此抗衡。个体生命、世事变迁在此于时空和意涵交错,艺术家借此对生命进行内在的自省。


展览“武明中:视外观内”试图以“观”为线索,呈现武明中创作对象的一体两面:外部世界与内心状态。展览希望聚焦艺术家自身,去关注其创作的历程与转变,追溯其艺术的轨迹和价值;并以这些作品的复杂性和深刻度,来向观众还原艺术家最本真的思考和创作状态。

It is an honor to announce that the artist Mr. Wu Mingzhong will launch his first solo exhibition in Parkview Green 798 Gallery on June 16th, 2019 (Saturday), with the theme “Wu Mingzhong: In-Outward Observations”, where the artist’s two series of paintings created in recent years will be exhibited. With the theme of In-Outward Observation, the exhibition will last till July 21th, Sunday.


As one of the most famous artists of Globalocalism is China’scontemporary art in the early years of 21th century, Wu Mingzhong is known to many by his unique painting The Glass Figures. Since the beginning of the 21th century with intensifying globalization, the zealous consumerism has been gaining popularity in China, and Wu Mingzhong has keenly captured the zeitgeist and the problems concealed beneath – material pursuit and fragility. He started questioning, from a new perspective of an artist, the relationship between human beings and society, humanity and lust, as well as between fragility and perpetuality. The warm and intimate human body made of flesh and bones is replaced by the hard yet fragile glass and becomes cold and estranged. The scarlet pigments in the canvas do not only constitute a visual impact, but also bring illusional impulsive dizziness to the audience. This is somehow like the currently society, where people are obsessed with money and are unable to see themselves. Surrounded by such external environment, Wu Mingzhong is a questioner of the era and society, who quietly sits behind the paintings depicting and questioning everything that falls into his sight. 


In recently years, the creation theme of Wu Mingzhong is gradually steered from description of external world to the attending to his inner space. Inspired by traditional Chinese culture and paintings, such asLiuzu Chopping Bamboos by Liang Kai, Meditation of Two Buddhists by Shi Ke, and the works of Mu Xi such as Six PersimmonsTwo Watermelonsand Two Monkeys, he is focused on the personal status and spiritual observations at a certain stage of his life. In the newly created series of inward observations, once scarlet elements are extracted what’s left are only the crystal clear glass figures, which stand at the specific spots in the space and time, so alone as private individuals, against the life full of urgency, which are connected with and turned against each other with the interwoven relationship of sight, emotions and consciousness. The artist expressed his inner reflections to life in the exhibition where the life of individuals and vicissitudes of world would meet with time, space and emotions. 


The exhibition “Wu Mingzhong: In-Outward Observations” follows the concept of “observation” and demonstrates the two sides of the artist’s works: the outward world and inward status. The exhibition wishes to focus on the artist himself to find out the trajectory of how his creation transforms so that we can better understand the value of his works. Through exhibiting the complexity and depth of his works, the original thoughts and creation philosophies can be presented to the audience.
