October 29 – November 30, 2011
Opening October 29, 6 pm

Aike Dellarco is thrilled to present “tiny drop”, Guo Hongwei’s first solo exhibition in Italy.

Guo Hongwei, born in Chongqing (Sichuan) in 1982, in recent years has gained quite an attention for his unique technique. Recurring to the medium itself as a device to enhance and deepen the visual perception of the painted subjects – water in the case of watercolours, varnish in that of oil paintings, as pure pigment in the case of tridimensional, stand-alone sculptures wholly realized in acrylic paint, Guo Hongwei combines an experimental and bold attitude within the practices and methodologies of painting together with a rigorous and selective concern for the essential structure of the objects he observes.

The series of works ‘tiny drop’ presented in the show, consists of a number of small watercolours that reproduce photographs of the artist’s childhood. By repainting this sequence of self-portraits, family members and close friends, Guo Hongwei pursues a nostalgic and intimate recollection of his own past, while also engaging in reassembling the collective memory of an entire generation.

Guo Hongwei,graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. He lives and works in Beijing.

Select recent exhibitions: “Catch the Moon in the Water: Emerging Chinese Artists”, James Cohan gallery, New York, 2011; “Things”, Chambers Fine Art’, New York, 2010; “Guo Hongwei, Yuko Murata, Karen Seapker”, James Cohan gallery, Shanghai, 2010; “Refresh: Emerging Chinese Artists”, Zendai Museum of Modern Art, Shanghai, 2007; “Energy: Spirit, Body, Material” Today Art Museum, Beijing’ 2007

艾可画廊,巴勒莫
意大利巴勒莫SIRACUSA街9号

2011年10月29日至11月30日
开幕:2011年10月29日 下午6点

艾可画廊荣幸呈现郭鸿蔚在意大利的首次个展。

郭鸿蔚,1982年出生于重庆,近年来由于其独特的绘画技法引起关注。他通过运用媒材本身强化描绘对象的视觉感受力的方式(比如水彩中的水份控制,油画中大量油质的运用,以及使用丙烯制作的绘画雕塑等),以专注和极具控制力的方式铸建着观察对象的视觉结构,并以大胆和实验的态度进行着极简的绘画方法论实践。

本次展出的作品“小意思”是一系列以艺术家童年照片为对象再造的小幅水彩;通过对自己及亲朋好友的重新描绘,郭鸿蔚不仅在追寻乡愁和重拾个人史,也可将其看作是对他那代人集体记忆点滴的重现。

郭鸿蔚毕业于四川美术学院,目前生活工作于北京。

他最近参与的系列展览包括:“水中捞月:中国新生代艺术家作品展”,科恩画廊,纽约,2011; “东西”, 前波画廊,纽约,2010;“郭鸿蔚,Yuko Murata, Karen Seapker”,科恩画廊,上海,2010;“刷新――中国的青年艺术家,上海证大现代艺术馆,上海,2007,“能量——精神、身体、物质,首届今日文献展”,今日美术馆,北京 ,2007
