甘肃籍画家张永正于2004年移居昆明,全职从事艺术创作。云南的气候和文化对他的艺术产生了深刻影响,开始了名为“过程”系列的抽象艺术创作,同时也一直从事大量的纸本即兴绘画。

张永正的纸本即兴绘画以线、绳、抹布、衣物、刮刀等材料沾墨或水在纸面上鞭打、滴洒、拓印,通过对纸本的“行动”来留下痕迹,形成线或块面互为交错、对冲、叠加关系,画面形象具有升腾、下坠、周旋等奔放的运动效果,注重颜料水墨的表现性,和绘制工具生动的灵性状态。画面率性洒脱、洗练、充满动感和幽默趣味,犹如道家哲学中道作为形上实体在宇宙间生生不息、毫无阻拦、无微不至地运行一般。

张永正曾于2005年在昆明TCG诺地卡画廊举办过首次画展,反响强烈。时隔7年张永正再次在TCG诺地卡画廊集中展示他从2004年至今创作的从未公开过的纸本即兴绘画,精选其中约50幅精品与大家分享。展览名为“无为”,意在呈现道家“无为”思想与抽象绘画的暗通。

此次展览由TCG诺地卡画廊和框余画廊联合主办,为大家带来云南罕见的抽象艺术视觉体验。展览将于2012年4月6日晚上8点在西坝路101号创库艺术社区TCG诺地卡画廊举办开幕酒会,展览将持续到5月26日。

Gansu Artist Zhang Yongzheng came to Kunming in 2004 and has been making art here ever since. Yunnan’s climate and culture have left a deep impression on his art, particularly on his “Process” series of abstract works. At the same time he has been engaged in a great number of paper-based improvisational works and it is these that will be exhibited in the upcoming exhibition.

Zhang Yongzheng’s paper-based improvisational works are made with materials such as string, rope, rags, clothing, and palette knives. These he wets with ink in order to whip, rub or drip the image onto the paper. The paper, having gone through these “actions,” carries the vestiges that are left behind in the form of lines or shapes. These forms are related in the way they crisscross, hedge, and superimpose upon one another. The shapes on the page rise, fall, and interact, resulting in a feeling of unrestrained movement. They emphasize the expressiveness of the paint and ink while exposing the vividly spiritual nature of the tools. The works are unaffected and nimble, brimming with dynamism and humorous delight. They are reminiscent of the metaphysical view in Daoist philosophy that an entity in the universe is ceaselessly growing and multiplying, unstoppably, meticulously in motion.

Zhang Yongzheng held an exhibition in TCG Nordica Gallery in 2005 that had profound repercussions. Now, after seven years, he returns to TCG Nordica Gallery to collect and display the paper-based improvisational works he began making in 2004, works which until now have never been displayed. 50 works have been specially selected to share with the public in this special exhibition. The exhibition has been named “Wu Wei”, in reference to the Daoist concept of active inaction and its close relationship to abstract art.

This exhibition has been organized by the combined efforts of TCG Nordica and Kuangyu Gallery in order to present a rare chance to experience the works of this abstract artist. The exhibition opening will be held on April 6th, 2012 at Xiba Road 101, Artist Loft, TCG Nordica Gallery, and the exhibition will continue until May 26th.
