ZHENG Lu  郑路

 

selected works 作品精选


bio

Coming from a family with a strong and deep traditional Chinese intellectual background, from childhood, Zheng Lu was greatly influenced by Chinese literature and calligraphy. Later, formal Chinese and foreign art educational experience opened up his way of looking at and understanding contemporary art; the mixed, almost contradictory experiences in his life have helped him to re-examine both Chinese and Western artistic theory. 

Zheng Lu’s works show his commitment to artistic exploration with his hollowed-out stainless steel series entitled “Interpreting Nonexistence,” largely inspired by traditional Chinese literature, calligraphy and Taoist beliefs. However, evident also is an expandsion of his practice into new artistic territories, bringing a new aesthetic to his stainless steel sculptures.    

The labor-intensive production process of Zheng Lu’s sculpture is a seamless combination of laser cutting, molding, welding and polishing of stainless steel, with an impressive hollowed out body, transforming the hard metal and giving it the fluidity of liquid and the lightness of air. 

简介

郑路出生在一个具有极其深厚中国传统文化底蕴的家庭,自儿时起在很大程度上受到了中国文学与书法的熏染。他在鲁迅美术学院和中央美术学院所接受的系统美术训练与教育,以及在法国国立高等美术学院进修时所受到的西方艺术观念上的影响,都为郑路对当代艺术的理解和创作打开了新的视野天地。他生活中层叠甚至是相背离的艺术经历与体验,都对郑路重新审视他所学习到的中西美学理论与定义起到了至关重要的影响。

郑路前期雕塑作品的创作一直围绕着镂空不锈钢为媒介的“读空”系列。此系列以中国传统文学为题材,并与书法与道家学说相糅合。近期,郑路在雕塑装置领域又进行了大胆的尝试与实验,将他特有的美学态度带入他的作品之中。

郑路作品的工艺以及制作过程极为繁复,他对不锈钢的独特处理方式,赋予其作品一种刚柔并济且轻盈流动的美感。
