1998年居住在新西兰的荷兰艺术家 Leon van den Eijkel 在卡帕拉港口的吉布斯农场,做了一个令人印象深刻的作品 – 《遇见红云》。 该作品受蒙德里安的启发,是一个小而精的作品。从山脚下看,只能看到众多黑色、蓝色的柱子群中有一根红柱子。而从斜坡上端俯视,柱子群却呈现出绚丽的色彩,就好像在天空俯视太平洋海面一样。

Gibbs Farm, Kaipara Harbour – “In 1998 Leon van den Eijkel, a Dutch artist who lives in New Zealand, produced one of the more striking works on the Farm. Red Cloud Confrontation in Landscape is a minimalist masterpiece that takes its inspiration from a Mondrian painting. The work viewed from the downhill angle appears as black and blue cubes with just one red cube. From the top of the sloping ground it appears as brightly coloured cubes, inspired by the colours of the Pacific landscape.”

作品努力在红、黄、蓝三原色之间寻求平衡,艺术家称之为欧洲现代主义和南半球大自然的对话。作品以绝对水平、完美的矩形方阵以及纯黑底座上饱满的色彩和色彩参差又高低起伏的农场相对应,形成强烈的对比张力。

Tried and true colour harmonies based on the three primary colours of red, yellow and blue, are pitted against what van den Eijkel calls his “Pacific colours” in a dialogue between European modernism and the southern hemisphere environment. The work also pits itself against the gradient and colour gradations of the farm’s green slopes with its precise articulation of a true horizontal plane, the grid and of perfect squares; and through its composition of solid colours floating on their pure black plinths.

 

也许艺术家在新西兰找到了讲求数量和精准的欧洲现代文明与边界模糊、随意流淌的大自然之间实现对话的方式,找到了将二者相连的那片红云!你能感受到他欣喜不已吗?
