ZHOU Fan  周范

 

selected work 作品精选


Intro

Zhou Fan is well known for his astonishingly detailed drawings and paintings that depict fantastical nature scenes. Often working without drafts, plans or pre-set ideas, Zhou Fan’s large works take from 8 months to 3 years to finish. Dreams, memory, hallucinations, and fantasy have all been the thread and substance of Zhou Fan’s practice throughout the last decade. His previous series of artworks brought his audiences into a realm of imagination with out-of-this-world scenes and a sumptuous and unusual color palette.

Zhou Fan’s latest series of paintings takes this dreamlike domain to a further point. Following along roadways, these strong artificial colors and illusory landscapes waver between reality and fantasy, becoming the foremost visual features in his new works.  Meditating on the relationship between that which is manmade and things of nature, between the city and the wild, the new works are the artist’s approach at harmonizing and balancing this intricate eco system we inhabit.  With this group of works he capturing works, the artist takes his audiences on an illusory and adventurous“road trip” where we know no beginning or ending. 

简介

周范被大家所广泛认知是通过他极富细节且以超自然为主题的纸本及布面作品。周范的前期作品常常没有任何小稿与前期构思,从一个点开始,在画布上有机的徐徐蔓延开来,大幅的作品基本上要有8个月到3年不等的创作时间。梦境、记忆、幻象都是周范之前创作的重要主题线索,他的作品将观者带进了一个仿如现实之外色彩斑斓的梦幻仙境。
 
周范的新作将梦境般风景的描绘更加推进了一步。公路,艳丽的人造色彩和交织在现实与臆想之间的幻境风景,这些都是新作品中强烈的视觉主线。冥想于人造/自然、城市/荒野的对比主题之间,新系列作品是艺术家对当下人类在赖以生存的脆弱且敏感的生态系统中不断求得平衡的一种艺解。通过这组视觉张力极强的新作品,艺术家带上你我一起,开始了一场无始无终、亦真亦幻且充满冒险的公路之旅。
