他她它——艺术的一百种可能 | “HE, SHE, IT"
Je fine art Gallery’s art world
20世纪英国最重要的作家之一——威廉·萨默塞特·毛姆在1945年应美国《红书》之邀写下了文学评论界的著作《Ten Novels and Their Authors》(《巨匠与杰作》)。席间列举并点评了毛姆心中世界十佳小说。这是一本关于作者（他／她）和其作品（它）的书。当然连毛姆自己也承认“我所列的书单极为武断”。所谓世界之最是根据每个人不同的心境和环境所产生的。同样以艺术为源头的绘画其实也是如此。这个世界在19世纪末期便被人们按下了快进键，从建筑、雕塑到绘画都有着翻天覆地的革新。不过不论时光如何变化，关于他，她，它的故事依旧在上演。此番我们在自己的册子上列下了几位20世纪的杰出艺术家，从莫里斯、米罗、布菲到赵无极、丁雄泉、草间弥生等。自此，续写了关于他，她，它的故事。
William Somerset Maugham, one of the most prominent writers of twentieth-century Britain, accepted the commission of American magazine Redbook and wrote a great literary criticism in 1945——Ten Novels and Their Authors. In this book, Maugham writes about and collates what he considers to have been the ten greatest novels in the world. It’s a book about the books(“It”) and the authors (“He” or “She”). Maugham himself also admitted, “The booklist I wrote was completely a personal choice”. The so-called “best of the world” is based on the mood and environment of individuals, so is painting, which also originates from art. Since the end of 19th century, the world seems to have jumped into fast mode, where revolutions have kicked off in every aspect of art, from architecture to sculpture, to painting. But, no matter how time flies, the story about “He”, “She”, and “It” will persevere. This new exhibition at Je Fine Art Gallery showcases the artworks of a few outstanding artists from the 20th century, including Maurice Utrillo, Joan Miró, Bernard Buffet, Wou-Ki Zao, Walasse Ting and Yayoi Kusama, continuing the story of“He”, “She” and “It”.
