前言
 
架上一直是当代艺术一个最为“难缠”的领域,与发生发展于20世纪以后的种种新艺术形式不同,以油画为主述对像的架上艺术,其现代性与意义在自身绵长的历史和林立的经典面前,始终被置于一种疑窦丛生的境地,无论作为对象还是工具,每一代甚至每一个艺术家都不得不通过自己的实践重新在当下与自身中定义这一艺术形式的有效性:也正是这种我们可以称之为“现代性的压迫”的处境,逼生了20世纪以来那些纷繁复杂的流派与手法,并在这一次次的叫阵与反复中,将我们的审美冲动赶出樊篱驱入旷野。
 
这种貌似跼促与逼仄的处境,这一缺乏不言自明之道的主体,这样一个包袱重重而不能以其现代性轻松上阵的局面,使油画这一艺术形式意外获得了某种远为深刻的内在进展和可能性——展示于此的15位青年艺术家,其个人风貌与整体生态,正可以与此一意义相发明。
 
这里,无论他们是出生于70年代还是80后,我们都可以在这些艺术家的作品中看到对油画这一既定形式在语言和主题上的探索和提问,这些探索既有一般性意义也有每个艺术家不同的观照,而尤其是后者,使我们得以对油画艺术在当下的可能性可以抱持善意的期待。更为重要的是,在这15位青年艺术家身上所表现出来的多样性,或许也可以让我们对那些今日被视为学术中坚与市场重心的上一批艺术家有一个更为冷静的审视:在他们观念性与符号化的引领和笼罩之外,艺术是否别无可能?
 
当然,正如作为主题的“有来有去”所暗示,无论是艺术家个人还是艺术史,都自有其脉络,无所从来者必然也就无所从去。这不但在艺术家身上是一个律令,对于我们这些观者也同样有效:无论是一般性的收藏,还是学术批评或鉴赏,我们必须有所观照,以获致一种与艺术家创作相对等的“有来有去”的眼光。
 
最后,作为展览主题“有来有去”的另一层涵义,我们可以作为笑谈放在这儿:《西游记》里有一个同名小妖,是金毛犼手下的一名小喽罗,作者罗贯中煞费苦心的给这个小妖取了如是一个名字。小妖后来如何文中并没有特别交代,但就像孙猴子这个小妖后来居然成佛一样,“有来有去”未必就没有这个可能。
 
而这里的15位青年艺术家,在那些如日中天的大腕看来,无非当代艺术领域的喽罗和小将,但假以时日如何呢?不也大大的值得期待么?
 
 
Carry On
The Painting Ecology of 15 Young Artists
 
Oil on Canvas had always been a most “controversial” topic, compared to a plentitude of new art-forms since the 20th century, oil on canvas works had become a cause for doubt and reservation, regarding its purpose and what it currently represents in the face of its long history and timeless classics. As a subject or merely a tool, every generation of artist as well as individual artist must all redefine the validity of painting as an art-form through the artists’ own practices: this is what we refer to as “contemporary repression” which had created the various styles in the 20th century, in the ongoing debates between these styles, we as the audience are given totally new sights an perceptions.
 
This seemingly claustrophobic situation, which is not self-explanatory and heavily burdened, gave oil painting by coincidence a far more profound opportunity for internal growth — the ecology of these 15 exhibiting artists are precisely the reason why the theme is relevant.
 
Regardless if these artists are born in the 70’s or 80’s, we can detect the their exploration and questioning toward the notion of oil painting as a fixed terminology, its language and its subjects, these explorations include ones that are conventional as well as personal, especially the latter, which allows us to expect and look for even further possibilities within contemporary oil painting. What’s more important is the multi-elemental nature of these 15 artists which also leads us to perceive the last generation of oil painting artists who were placed in the academic and commercial center through a different lens: we ask ourselves whether or not art can still stay intact beyond the iconic and conceptual realms.    
 
Of course, as the theme “Carry On” indicates, artists as well as art history all have their inherent paths, there can be no future if there were no past. This is not only applicable for artists, it is also true for us as bystanders, the audience: whether collecting, critical academia or simply appreciation of art, we must all bear this in mind in order to poses an attitude which allows us to “Carry On” like that of the artists.
 
Lastly, an anecdote of the term “Carry On” which we can place here to sidetrack for a moment: in “Journey to the West”, a foot soldier of the Monster Golden Haired Mastiff whose name was “Carry On” or “Comes & Goes” was a stroke of genius by the author Luo Guanzhong. What happened to “Comes & Goes” in the end is not relevant, just as unlikely that the Monkey King became Buddha in the end, maybe so could “Comes & Goes”.
 
In the eyes of the Big Shots, these 15 artists are also mere foot soldiers, given time, aren’t they also worth our wait?
