不任于山,不任于水,不任于笔墨,不任于古今,不任于圣人。是任也,是有其资也。
——《石涛画语录》

艺术一直是伴随人类循环往复的一个过程,不自觉、到自觉、又回归不自觉的创造,而这一切都是因为“我”的关系。21世纪的今天是一个多元意识并存的、碎片化的时代,也是更强调自我独特性与创造性的时代。一切的静止与变动,最终取决于“我”的抉择。

罗威在这个信息化爆炸、碎片化时代,探索与实践。每次创作过程,都是一场身体力行的格斗。创作过程前、创作过程中、创作过程后,罗威及其作品都一直处于动的状态。他用抽象的绘画语言描绘出各类具象之物,孑孓、蜻蜓、猫头鹰、草本植物、池塘等等。作为观者,需要与其对话,才能有所收获。这是一种乐趣,是一种既陌生又熟悉的体验。罗威说,“我从看似混乱的、遭到破坏的节奏中,我捕捉到了生命中本该拥有的悸动。物性的颜料和笔触是经我调配后生成的一种化学性反映,类似发酵过后的酒精,我称之为‘视觉酶’。”

在这个快速变化的互联网时代,便捷性与阻碍力同行,身处其中,我们有各种不同情绪状态,我们也有各种不同的表达方式。罗威70年代出生于武汉,2000年初来到上海,时间与地域跨度让他的经历更丰富,也让他的作品自然而然地浮现出他的独特气质,一种更个性化、更迷人、更有涵养的气质。他的作品就像是从杂从中脱颖而出的片刻舒畅与欢愉,也让观者获得了一个新的观看这个世界的视角。

南朝画家谢赫在《古画品录》中提出绘画“六法”,第一即是“气韵生动”。气韵在艺术作品中居首要地位。“气”,指自然宇宙生生不息的生命力;“韵”,指事物所具有的某种情态。罗威的作品就有一种流动的气韵。笔触随形而变,有绘画的视觉美感,也有书法中的时间变化。颜色兼容并蓄,相互独立,也相得益彰。

罗威的作品还有一种未完成感,预示了新的变化,也暗示着他创作的痕迹。面对是否完成,是否到达终点,这是“我”的抉择。同时,“我”可以选择溯洄从之,也可以选择溯游从之。在这个巨浪的新时代,顺势而为或许是一种好的选择,但是是保持有自我独立性的溯游从之。

2019年伊始,致力于打造金融与艺术、人文的完美融合,秉持“精致服务”理念的富邦华一银行,再次携手上海杜若云章画廊,带来一场丰富的当代艺术视觉之旅——溯游,罗威个展。

 

With the cool Winter months deep upon us, the time is perfect for seeking out cultured experiences in warm spaces. The exhibition “Natural Flow” featuring works by charismatic Chinese contemporary artist; Luo Wei, hosted by the prestigious Fubon Bank will be on show at number 360, South of Pudong Road, Pudong New District, Shanghai from the 12th of January until the 31st of March 2019. This exhibition - in collaboration with the Je Fine Art Gallery is one significance, guaranteed to delight the imagination and engage one’s curiosity - showcasing the abundant talent of Luo Wei, an artist whose work will provide its audience a new and interesting perspective on everyday life. “Natural Flow” is bound to draw a large number of visitors – collectors and art enthusiasts alike from across Shanghai and the globe. Fubon Bank’s exceptional reputation is well known, its integrity, sincerity, professionalism and innovation are at the forefront of their services, this alliance with Je Fine Art Gallery indeed provides their customers and visitors with a unique and exceptional experience and service in every way.

Luo Wei’s body of work depicts characters and detail of everyday life, often things that go unnoticed in the busyness of human existence. Luo Wei has the ability to transform the ordinary into beings of wonder, making their very presence of great importance, allowing them to take centre stage - ceasing time for a moment - allowing them to shine. Landscapes with homage to traditional Chinese painting are given a new age contemporary feel. Owls who are nocturnal birds of prey, emblematic of deep connection to the mysteries of the night, full of wisdom and with deep intuitive knowledge are also to be found here, inky in their ghostly presence, they peer from the canvas back at the viewer in a delightful exchange of perspective.

Luo Wei’s mosquito also performs for us, slender with long jointed legs and a segmented body – wings beating frantically – dancing across the canvas, its presence undeniable. Mosquitos are tiny creatures yet have the ability to occupy great space and power - the sound of the mosquito is understood in any language or culture, moving from one person to the next - connecting us all. Luo Wei has found a novel and unfamiliar platform of importance for the typically unpopular mosquito. Also, amongst this exhibition the seeker will find expressive responses to the beauty of flowers and herbs, inspired from Luo Wei’s very own garden, these organic and ephemeral blooms are given a life beyond their natural one, living on forever in paint upon surface. “Natural Flow” is an encounter with paint, pushed to its limit, coercing it to become more than just paint and therefore creating a visceral reaction within its audience. Often the viewer will see broad brushstrokes, drips and involuntary splashes of medium - revealing the physical action of the artist and further adding intrigue to the work.

The “Natural Flow” exhibition is full of interest and energy, revealing the unnoticed, giving the audience a new way of witnessing creatures and common place objects, allowing for a changing of perception, understanding and appreciation. Be sure to mark the exhibition dates down in your diary, bring your work colleges, partners, friends and family for a cosy and intimate experience with the work of Luo Wei. Life is art and in turn art is life – invest some time in appreciating art and it will be an investment well made.
