包媛茵 『夢幻風景』版畫及繪畫展覽 Faye Bradley’s Dream Landscapes

羅卓睿畫廊 將於 9 月 11 日 下午 6 時至 8 時舉行開幕。

羅卓睿畫廊呈獻英國藝術家包媛茵 Faye Bradley 全新版畫及繪畫展覽 。

藝術家包媛茵在香港出生和長大,隨後前往英國利茲大學攻讀藝術與設計學士(榮譽)學位。她一直對視覺藝術充滿熱情,並在繪畫和繪畫生活場景中為自己找到了舒適感。在利茲大學學習期間,她開始使用油畫來製作中大型藝術作品,並創作了一系列名為 『夢幻風景』 的畫作。 『夢幻風景』旨在創造一種人無法獲得的對無形夢想世界的感覺。憑藉對夢想和夢想的濃厚興趣,包媛茵通過她對人類行為的獨立論文研究,研究側重於夢想的過程以及藝術家如何在作品中受到啟發和使用。她的畫作以一種明亮,超脫現實的氛圍將觀眾描繪成一種懷舊和夢想的回憶。能夠通過多種大型(和較小的速寫)繪畫來展示這一點,使觀眾的視線能夠在每種構圖的顏色和形狀上徘徊,並感受到她希望喚起的感覺。

目前,包媛茵居住在香港,將於10月中旬搬到倫敦,繼續從事視覺藝術事業。

Faye Bradley was born and raised in Hong Kong before moving to the U.K. to study Art and Design BA (Hons) at the University of Leeds. She has always had a passion for the visual arts, and found comfort in drawing and painting scenes of her life. During her study at Leeds university, she began to use oil paint to produce large scale art pieces and composed a series of paintings, entitled “Dream Landscapes”. Dream Landscapes aims to create a sense of the intangible dream world which humans cannot acquire physically. With a deep interest in dreams and dreaming, Faye has studied the human behaviour through her Independent Study: Dissertation, which focused on the processes of dreaming and how artists are inspired and use this in their work. Her paintings transcend a luminous, surreal atmosphere, and aspire to portray the audience into a nostalgia and remembrance of a dream. Being able to showcase this through multiple large-scale (and smaller studies) paintings, allows the viewer to wander across the colours and shapes of each composition and get a sense of the feeling she wishes to evoke.

The processes used behind Faye’s paintings in Dream Landscapes, were inspired by the
memories of her previous holidays and moments of happiness- found through photographs. She used these photographs as memoirs and found nostalgia and comfort, when looking at these.

Using a selection of her best photography, she found sections of this to concentrate her
paintings on. To find the landscape composition, she chooses the most critical points of interest on each painting, particularly focusing on the curvature of the mountains and roads to create an “unreal” landscape. She derives much of inspiration from reknowned artists, David Hockney and Milton Avery. Both these artists display an exquisite way of working, using colour to express a vivid scene. Faye expresses her notion of dreaming through colour as well, using luminous, light washes of oil paint to embody a sense of faded memory- much like being in a dream.

The artist’s fascination in dreams was founded from her own experience in dreaming and how each one differs nightly- sometimes retraced but slightly different each time. She aims to recreate this through her work and translate the idea of dream imagery in painting Dream Landscapes series comprise of oil painting. This was a new technique for the artist, after using it only from three years ago. The fluidity and ability to create transparency through oil paints was a huge factor in determining her choice of using this medium. The importance of transparency was to focus on the dreamy atmosphere and help to enhance the dream experience for viewers.

Faye enjoys painting on large canvases because she feels this really helps to translate a message and allow her to freely paint across the page, without restrictions. She made her own frames for her canvases as well as some ready-made ones for the larger paintings. Compositions were tested through smaller-scale studies, before being painted on the larger canvases. She also created prints of the paintings in the Dream Landscape collection, in order to allow viewers to see the paintings from a different angle and size, which completely changes the tone of the image. Faye found that this brought out a new, exciting challenge to her work.

Currently, Faye is living in Hong Kong and will be moving to London in mid-October to further pursue her career in the visual arts.
