王临潼

中国西安

王临潼的作品充满了细腻且丰富的黑、白、灰调,艺术家并非在创作中刻意地追求运用特定色彩而产生的形式感,而是在创作过程中自然有机地形成了当下的视觉风格。摒弃了色彩的干扰,作品中所描绘的图像、背后的观念与艺术家意图传达的信息则更加凸显,成为了观者着眼和关注的焦点。

记忆、矛盾、隐喻与寓言是王临潼在其创作中不断关注的主题,而绘画创作则是他视觉叙事的手段与媒介。王临潼的作品在题材的选择上多围绕着这四个观念进行,而作品背后诸多的灵感与感悟则来自于他对周遭社会和人的观察与思考,经由个人领悟之后的提炼。

王临潼好于提问,也喜于通过他的艺术视觉语言来作答。隐喻、寓言故事都是他偏爱的创作手段与方法,尤其是在描述记忆与阐述复杂观念的情形下,他在图像中所获得的直接性是言语所无法给予的,。运用图像可以让他跨越语言的鸿沟,直击事物现象本质,却避免了语言中可能携带的尖锐感,以视觉画面中所自有的沉静与美感婉婉道来。

王临潼1984年生于陕西省, 先后于2006、2011年获得西安美术学院学士与硕士学位。毕业后从事专业艺术创作多年,自2007起广泛在国内及国外参展。他的近期个展包括:显现的影,ART LABOR画廊,上海(2022);珊瑚白,制图术、隐身衣,以及沙沙作响,西安美术馆,西安(2021);空山,妙有艺术,北京(2006)。他的近期群展包括:夏日插电,ART LABOR画廊,上海(2021);元章见石II,一票人票空间&画库,台北(2021);花园,妙有艺术,北京(2019);东方来信——Inter- Youth国际青年绘画展,中国美术学院美术馆,杭州(2018);子午线——当代中国艺术家纸上作品展,Volcano剧院,英国威尔士(2018);陕西省现代文化艺术节,陕西省美术博物馆,西安(2017);城墙之外——西安当代艺术巡展,湖北美术馆,武汉 / 成都蓝顶美术馆,成都(2017)。王临潼现工作居住于西安。
