裴准晟 Bae Joonsung  韓國(光州) b.1967

2000年在⾸爾國⽴⼤學藝術學院拿到藝術碩⼠學位。他擁有令⼈印象深刻的個展與聯展經歷,曾多次在韓國與歐洲展出。他的光柵⽚繪畫創作細膩⽽又繁複,⾸先藝術家非常仔細地將他要的主題畫下,然後將這些畫作攝影,再製作成光柵屏幕,讓影像能隨著觀者的角度得以呈現不同的視野。製作過程中最重要的是將影像層次化,就是要讓’畫中有畫’。

新作主要在於呈現⼈物在室內或是運動的場景以及靜物畫。有些畫作中嵌有光柵⽚有些則是整塊光柵⽚的創作,它們之間的共通點是’顏’外之⾳。它們被巧妙地創作出來,讓⼈不難聯想到⼗九世紀西⽅的浪漫主義畫家,像是⽶萊(Millais)、阿爾瑪-塔德瑪(Alma-Tadema)、安格爾(Ingres),它們豐富又具吸引⼒的畫⾯是使思路流動、變化、衰退和轉換的起點。

我們對畫作總是有⼀種期待,⽽裴准晟的技法卻使我們的期待困惑。像是薩⾦特描繪⼀位愛德華時期淑女的畫像變成當代韓國女性的裸體︔又或是華麗的花卉研究在我們眼前枯萎⽽死︔亦或是運動比賽達到了⾼潮。利⽤學術性繪畫的原則進⽽數位化操作它們,藝術家擾亂了觀者的觀看歷程,進⽽吸引我們的注意。

裴准晟的繪畫潛進了不同的世界,他結合了過去與現在、真實與⼈為、著裝與裸體。這些影像表現了我們感知的⽚段與難以捉摸的特性,使我們能更堅決地去品味。

Bae Joonsung was born in Gwangju, South Korea in 1967 and trained at the College of Fine Arts of Seoul National University in 2000. The work of Bae Joonsung artfully combines painting and photography, inviting the viewer to explore the relationship between the two art forms.

 

When one walks past Bae’s paintings, the female nude within each composition is unveiled behind an otherwise demure scene created with reference to old master paintings or museum settings. For Bae, the attraction of a still life lies not in its quiet, placid nature, but in the dynamic energy contained therein. He has said that he has always believed that when an artist paints, with his or her eyes caressing over the model, the final painting brings birth to ‘another’ model entirely. As such, his lenticular technique – which gives rise to the dynamic, changing nature of his work – blurs the line between the animate nature of his subject and the inanimate nature of the paintings that result, encouraging the viewer to rethink these distinctions. His work is an acknowledgement of what is happening when the artist views his subject; it speaks of the entire process of painting rather than just one singular moment. Each beginning with the title "The Costume of the Painter", Bae plays with a literal understanding of this heightened period mood, wonderfully depicted, and at the same time signifies this additional cloak of meaning and artifice added through the creative invention of the artist.

 

Bae Joonsung has had three solo exhibitions is Seoul and participated in a number of group exhibitions in Korea, France and Germany. In 2000, Bae Joon Sung was honoured with the Korean Ministry of Culture and Tourism Award for ‘Young Artist of Today’.
