石来运转

薛滔

苔画廊近期推出张华的雕塑个展,将展示给大家生活在都市中的自然主义立场的艺术家对于雕塑创作所持的态度,一种接近艺术起源时的本能反应。

雕塑历史一般认为是从石器时代开始的。打磨石器被认为是人类主动认知体积的一种行为,而在动物牙齿上打洞则被认为人类对于空间的初次体验。随着人类文明逐渐形成和发展,科技能力的逐渐提高,雕塑材料从石头、木头变成了陶、金属、瓷等,一直到今天的塑料(树脂)和各种高科技媒材。这是通常认为的雕塑材料的发展进程。

张华的创作是一条逆向发展的雕塑史道路。他从艺术学院毕业,刚开始职业艺术家时所进行的大量创作是围绕着树脂与石膏展开的,大家在百度上了解到的张华基本上都与树脂有关。在进行了大量树脂作品创作后,张华对材料开始感到不满,于是进行了其它材料的尝试。大概有两年左右的时间,他在烧制土陶作品,但这并没有让他完全满意。据说,在他家附近,经常能捡到一些被人丢弃的石材,一些建筑用的边角料。这些被人用剩的遗弃在垃圾堆中的石头被张华带回家中,经过艺术家的手工打制后,便成为今天大家在画廊中看到的样子。

从树脂到陶再到石头,以及竹子和树枝,张华的雕塑创作道路,刚好与我们在课本上所看到的雕塑史进化道路相反,这是艺术家最有意思的地方。这条对于雕塑史逆向行进的道路呈现出艺术家对于人与自然之间应该保持的关系与态度。人类的城市发展是朝着背离自然的方向行进的,科技的发展特别是太空技术则指向让人类离开地球。这真的是一条能带给人类安全与幸福的道路吗?从张华的创作中让我产生出这样的联想。

张华近期的作品喜欢用手工的方式完场,他不使用打磨机等一些能够带来方便的机械,这强调出他对人类原动力的支持。同时他也告诉我们,只有通过手工的方式才能更直接的与材料进行交流,这也是能够深入了解材料,深入了解自然的方式。而且这也才能够真正体现对于自然的尊重和真诚。否则,会造成巨大浪费直至破坏。

对于材料和创作方式的了解,是在当代语境中了解一个艺术家比较有效的途径。很大程度上,从材料的使用就可以有效的了解到艺术家的价值取向和判断,材料的决定往往就已经表达出艺术家的创作态度。

Preface by Xue Tao

Zhanghua’s solo sculpture exhibition which will be presented soon in Contemporary Yunnan Gallery is going to interpreter an attitude of a metropolitan-based naturalism artist towards sculpture works creation, and an instinct response when approaching the genesis of art.

The history of sculpture usually is known initiated from the Stone Age. Stoneware honing is deem to be a positive recognition behavior for human being to learn the concept of volume, while hole-drilling on animals’ tooth was the first experience for human being to explore dimensional position. With the growing up and development of human’s civilization and science and technology, materials for sculpture also expanded from stone and wood to pottery, metal and porcelain, even to today’s plastic/resin and such high-tech materials. This is a widely acknowledged development process of sculpture material.

Zhanghua’s art creation, though, is a converse process to sculpture development process. Most of his early sculpture works were based upon the use of resin and gypsum in the beginning period of being a professional artist when he graduated from the art institute. All information about Zhanghua we can find from Baidu on the Internet is about resin works. After a plenty of resin sculpture work creation, he became unsatisfied with this material and started to attempt with the other materials. He even spent two years on ceramics but didn’t result in a big satisfaction. Ha said he could often gather some discarded stone materials and constructive materials near his house. These discarded stone materials collected from the waste heap were brought back home and then manually engraved by Zhanghua, and eventually became these amazing works exhibiting in this gallery now.

Zhanghua’s sculpture creation development, which transformed from resin to pottery, then to stone, and even to bamboo and tree branches, is just a reverse path of conventional sculpture history which we learned in academies. This is the most interesting factor of him. This reverse path presents the artist’s attitude to the relationship between human and environment. The direction of development of our city and urbanization is departing from the nature; science and technology, especially space technology are leading human being to depart from the earth. Is it really a right way that leads human being to safety and welfare? I myself was inspired to this kind of imagination by Zhanghua’s art works.

Zhanghua now likes working on his sculptures by hand. He doesn’t like any machinery which can bring convenience such as grinding machine. It reveals his preference and support to human’s prime power. At the same time, he attempts to prove the fact that the manual handling is the only way for artist to directly communicate with material and to learn more about material and the nature, and to show our respect and sincerity to the nature. Otherwise, we will gain nothing but a huge waste, even dreadful ruin.

One of the effective ways of learning about an artist in today’s context is to learn about the materials used in their art works and their manners of art creation. To a great extend, from the materials they are using, we can learn this artist’s value orientation and value judgment. The choice of material usually tells the attitude of this artist.
