白色形狀

藝術家賈恩卡洛·東諾尼自畫像, <Autoritratto>, 60x50

Oil on Canvas, 1968 

賈恩卡洛·東諾尼(Giancarlo Tognoni, b.1932-2020)的藝術作為二戰時期的一部分,如同一個尚未被發覺的寶箱,藏著來自「1932」年的藝術。「藝術是時代的鏡子」,雖然它未必全然反射出整個時代的各種現象。但是,它或多或少地能夠呈現出時代的某種縮影,古往今來許多能夠被稱為經典的藝術作品,往往因為鮮明的時代特徵,反而擁有了超越時代的永恆魅力,藝術作品的時代特徵滲透在藝術語言、創作觀念、造型圖示等多方面。

 

The Italian second post-war artist Giancarlo Tognoni (1932-2020), created "Art as the mirror of history", although it does not necessarily reflect all the phenomena of the entire ageit can more or less present a kind of microcosm of the times. Many works of art that can be called classics from ancient times to the present often have the eternal charm that transcends the times because of the distinctive characteristics of the times.

 
柔軟的圓形

而賈恩卡洛·東諾尼的作品與理念,正是在那剛將擺脫傳統藝術束縛,以及二戰後百花齊放的藝術思潮中誕生。其更是多次同封塔納·盧齊歐(Fontana Lucio)、阿爾貝托·布里(Alberto Burri)等義大利知名藝術家共同展覽,也作為威尼斯雙年展的常客受邀參展。

 Tognoni’s works and ideas were born in the artistic thought that was just about to get rid of the constraints of art and flourished after World War II. It has also exhibited together with well-known Italian artists such as Fontana and Burri for many times, and has also been invited to participate in the Venice Biennale as a frequent visitor.

賈恩卡洛·東諾尼的創作以抽象自然為題材,不斷的打破畫面的維度並賦予新的意義;每當觀賞他的畫作時,就像沉浸在一個無窮廣闊的宇宙中,而觀者僅是那浩瀚中的一點窺探發覺。得益於他對藝術不一樣的抽象表達與視野,人們才可以發現「未知」之美,一朵花、一隻昆蟲也未必只能是無限浩瀚中的一點,在他的畫筆之下,再小的個體、細胞、原子,亦或是無形的情感與思緒都能成為無限本身。

Tognoni's creations take abstract nature as the theme, constantly breaking the dimensions of the picture and giving new meanings; whenever viewing his paintings, it is like being immersed in an infinite universe.
