Tilted Square on White, 2017, oil on linen 31 x 31cm
 作品名稱方於白, 2017, 油畫於亞麻布 31 cm x 31 cm


DANICA FIRULOVIC Restrained and reserved, Danica Firulovic’s all-white paintings in square formats have been guided by an interest in reductive, non-objective art and the emotion evoked by the predominance of white. Close inspection of the works reveal evidence of the artist’s hand, in the smooth brush strokes and the lines meticulously drawn with pencil. The outer edge of the support, often left bare and unpainted, exposing the linen, is of equal importance as it frames the white-on-white geometric composition. The reduced palette creates insistent neutrality and connects with the unadulterated geometric shapes, which vary in tonal application and require absorption and slow engagement as the subtleness of white serves as a meditative distraction.

克制和保留是Danica Firulovic的全白方形畫作對還原且不具體的藝術,以及以白色主導所 引發的情緒所感到興趣的體現。 若進距離的觀察,其會發現藝術家的手感呈現在平滑的刷痕和細膩的鉛筆筆跡。在畫作的 邊緣,藝術家通常選擇不上色,刻意的暴露出其底下的亞麻布對於白於白的幾何構圖具有 同等的重要性。簡化的色調強調了對中立的堅持以及對純淨的幾何圖形的連結,且以色調 的應用,吸收的必要和緩慢的結合微弱的以白色作為冥想的分神。

NANCY CONSTANDELIA Nancy Constandelia is interested in the act of painting as a way to enhance and recalibrate the phenomenal body, in order to slow down within this fast-paced world.Her painting practice acts as resistance against the culture of speedin contemporary life. Constandelia creates reductive and minimal compositions which allow the viewer to enter a non-linguistic space beyond our everyday senses.On a temporal level, the viewer becomes the subject of the work as these paintings offer slow release.Her works invite stillness and rumination. Constandelia is an Australian born Chinese artist with an MFA from the University of NSW, Sydney. She exhibits in Australia and internationally. Constandelia has been a finalist in various art prizes including the Blake, Waverley and the Kudos Emerging Art Prize. In 2016 she won the UNSW Art & Design Industry Painting Prize.

Cocoon, 2016 - Preloved Linens, HD Video 190 cm x 60 cm
 繭, 2016 - ⼿手縫珍愛⼆二⼿手被單, ⾼高畫質影片, 190cm x 60cm


ROSE CHRISTINE TRIPODI Rose Christine Tripodi explores the material, transformative and therapeutic possibilities of artmaking.With a contemplative and process-driven approach she has hand-stitched and reshaped pieces of pre-loved linen into a sculpture resembling a protective cocoon. Having worked on these pieces in varied locations, the hand-stitched marks materially record the varied quality of emotions the artist experiences in direct response to these diverse settings. Tripodi relates the needlework processes of alteration, restoration and stitching to a sense of atonement, whereby the handstitched marks autobiographically reflect the process of transformation the artist herself has undergone in constructing the cocoon. Tripodi is invested in the pre-existing history of the old fabrics as carriers of knowledge and their potential to convey a story of fragility, self-growth and renewal. For Tripodi, her engagement with these stories through artmaking, is a catalyst for transformation. Rose Christine Tripodi 志於探索媒材,昇華以及療癒在藝術創作的可能性。她以審思和以創作 過程為主的⽅方法,親⼿手縫製珍愛的⼆二⼿手被單,把其雕塑成保護蛹的繭。每每隨著更更換創作的地 點,藝術家的情緒忠實的顯現在她的⼀一針⼀一線,紀錄著她對個個不同的環境的直覺反應。 Tripodi 對於針線活中修改,修復以及縫補的過程⽰示為贖罪的⼀一種體現。藝術家借助著其⼿手⼯工縫 製的繭的創作過程中昇華她⾃自⼰己的⽣生命。 Tripodi 相信每⼀一塊承載著前⼈人的歷史的老布料都夾帶著知識,以及它們試著述說的⼈人性的脆 弱,⾃自我成長和復新的故事。對於Tripodi來來說,把這些前⼈人的故事縫入她藝術作品裡,是其得 以昇華的媒介。
