  • In Short - English

    Executed in 2016, Untitled is a compelling example from American contemporary artist Josh Sperling’s instantly identifiable oeuvre that traverses both the worlds of art and design. Composed of two spiralling shades of vibrant blue, the viewer is immersed into an almost rhythmic momentum as the energetic work appears simultaneously calculated and impulsive. Relying firstly on graphic design software to digitally compose his sprawling abstract forms, Sperling then turns to the medium of three-dimensional plywood covered with canvas and acrylic to masterfully fabricate his concepts. Nodding to a wide variety of influences that range from the playful aesthetic of Keith Haring, to popular culture references such as MTV logos, as well as the language of minimalist paintings from the 60s and 70s, Sperling’s meticulously conceived works intrigue in their three-dimensionality as they live in a curious space between painting and sculpture.

     

    Represented by Galerie Perrotin, Sperling been honoured with numerous solo exhibitions around the globe. In 2019, this included at their venues in Paris, Tokyo, and New York. Scheduled between 10 November 2020 – 16 January 2021, Sperling’s upcoming solo show at Galerie Perrotin, Shanghai, only further highlights upon the artist’s now widely celebrated international acclaim.

    創作於2016年,《無題》是美國藝術家喬希·斯博林極具辨識度的作品中一個精湛的代表,遊走於繪畫與設計之間。由兩個明亮藍色的螺旋組成,觀者沉浸在一個充滿節奏感的動態當中,這件作品看上去經過精密計算卻也帶著本能的衝動。首先通過平面設計軟件來建構抽象造型,斯博林接著將畫布和壓克力顏料覆蓋在三維膠合板上,從而巧妙地呈現他的創作理念。靈感來源廣泛,從凱斯·哈林的玩笑美學,到MTV 商標等流行文化的借鑑,以及19601970年代的極簡繪畫語言,斯博林精心創作的作品在繪畫與雕塑之間的取得平衡,更以其三維立體感吸引觀者。

    由貝浩登畫廊代理,斯博林曾在世界各地舉辦個展覽。這包括2019年在其巴黎、東京和紐約的空間舉辦個展。定於20201110-2021116日的於上海貝浩登畫廊舉辦的斯博林個展,更是體現了藝術家備受
    國際矚目
