羅卓睿畫廊很高興展示藝術家Michael Andrew Law 的一系列新畫作。


Michael 對馬奈最著名的傑作的詮釋來自藝術家的《假如©朱利安·施納貝爾 (Julian Schnabel) 波普藝術™》系列,一看到它們,您的臉就會變得明亮。

參考超級名畫 Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe – 原名 Le Bain,是愛德華·馬奈 (Édouard Manet) 於 1862 年和 1863 年創作的一幅畫布油畫。它描繪了一個裸體女性和一個衣著暴露的女沐浴者在野餐時與兩個穿著整齊的男人農村環境。被 1863 年沙龍評審團拒絕,馬奈抓住機會在 1863 年的拒絕沙龍中展出這幅畫和另外兩幅畫,這幅畫引發了公眾的惡名和爭議。

很多古往今來藝術家的曾經嘗試拿這幅畫進行了他們自己的詮釋或重新想像(二次創作),比如克勞德·莫奈自己版本的《Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe》,保羅·塞尚在他的《Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe》中畫了同樣的主題,連畢加索也做了幾幅模仿馬奈作品的版本。



Michael Andrew Law 以其寫實主義和波普藝術繪畫而聞名歐美,他在這里為它們添加了一種扭曲——Michael 沒有復制這些著名圖像的表現形式,而是利用這些圖像來創造一個更加動態的畫面。

這些名畫以如此富有表現力的方式呈現,呈現出他們自己的樂趣——它們讓我們想起藝術的隨和天性以及我們從中獲得的簡單樂趣。如果©Julian Schnabel 去流行™ 是一種在藝術中重獲那種感覺的方式呢?

回顧Michael職業生涯早期使用的一個過程,Michael 直接在電腦上設計了他多年來收集的這些著名圖像的複製品,然後打印在紙上並粘在各種尺寸的畫布上。然後用閃光、濃稠和滴落的油漆渲染,幾乎完全掩蓋了原始參考。

由於當前對疫情的情況,此開放式工作室展覽活動僅限於預約的私人觀看,每次預訂允許額外一位客人,1 人最多 2 人的派對有 30 分鐘的預約,請給我們發送電子郵件以進行預訂你的位置。注意力!嚴格禁止步行,抱歉。

Studio Michael Andrew Law is pleased to present a new series of paintings by the artist.

In this series, Law is in dialogue with artists in the art history, such as Da Vinci, Modigliani, Freud, and Manet, among others.

Michael Andrew Law’s interpretation of Manet’s most famous masterpiece from Law’s What if ©Julian Schnabel goes Pop™ series are bright in your face as soon as you lay eyes on them.

Referencing Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe – originally titled Le Bain, is an original oil on canvas painting by Édouard Manet created in 1862 and 1863. It depicts a female nude and a scantily dressed female bather on a picnic with two fully dressed men in a rural setting. Rejected by the Salon jury of 1863, Manet seized the opportunity to exhibit this and two other paintings in the 1863 Salon des Refusés, where the painting sparked public notoriety and controversy.

Many artists had took this painting and made their own interpretation or re-imagine, such as Claude Monet's own version of Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe, Paul Cézanne painted the same theme in his Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe, Picasso made a couple of version of pastiche to the Manet work.

Backed by a brilliant colour hand made glitter, made up of a series of overlapping, differently brush strokes, splatters or drips, reconstructing a famous painting shining with glitter. Keywords and vocabularies related to the story of Manet has been placed carefully on this painting to connect this painting with art history to the same cultural whole.

The painterly style is playful and fun, and not the first time that artists have taken from popular culture and art history either to make a statement, or simple to have a good time.

Law, well known for his photorealism and pop art paintings, has added a twist to them here – instead of copying the representation of these famous images, Law has utilized these images to create a more dynamic picture.

These famous paintings represented in such expressive ways taking on a joy of their own – they remind us of the easygoing nature of art and the simple pleasures that we took from it. What if ©Julian Schnabel goes Pop™ is a way to recapture that feeling in art.

Revisiting a process used earlier in his career, Law designed directly on the computer with the reproductions of these famous images that he collected over the years, then printed on paper and glued onto canvases of various sizes. Then rendered in glitter, thick and dripping paint that almost completely obscures the original references.
