关于近藤翔平的禅宗艺术

文/杨赣

近藤翔平是一位卓越的当代青年艺术家。他出生于日本,先后在日本和美国接受艺术教育,近藤翔平具有东亚独有的文化积淀,又具有广阔的国际艺术视野。能将古老的日本文明与现代的西方文明结合,其作品充满了宗教的神学救赎和对人性、欲望的反思。

在一组平面摄影创作中,近藤翔平关注了蓝色、紫色的渐变,并将其应用于背景物的拼贴中。这一朴素、碰撞的艺术手法体现了艺术家对物和色彩的思考。西方当代艺术中,如波洛克等艺术家,色彩的运用通常绚丽多姿,表现艺术家主体炽热的情感,但在近藤的这组摄影中,他的颜色过度恬静而自然。近藤长期受到日本禅宗影响,在佛教文化中,有“色即是空”的说法,我们可以从近藤的摄影中明显感受到现象背后的空无,这正是禅宗美学的体现。

女人和性也是近藤翔平艺术创作的一大主题。在一系列女性人体艺术创作中,近藤翔平并未采用具象的肖像人体创作,也并未关注女性身体的生理结构,而是以一种灵动、深邃的笔法,表现了女性人体的轻灵和神性。整组创作充满了性的暧昧和隐喻。艺术史之父阿比•瓦尔堡曾经关注过画面里流动的女神姿态,例如波提切利的《春》。近平的女性人体也更加注重女性动感、韵味的表达,仿佛一个瞬间的形象和记忆,在欲望流逝之后又复归于空无。

近藤翔平自幼就经常进行禅宗的冥想,在艺术创作中又能发挥波普艺术、琳派艺术的优势,并结合禅宗、神道教等思想,将其圆润融合。他的作品屡屡获奖,并在美国、日本、中国举办过多次展览,赢得了社会的广泛关注和艺术上的专业好评。

Shohei kondo’s Zennish

article/ Yang gan

Shohei Kondo is an outstanding contemporary youth artist. He was born in Japan, and has ever received art education in both Japan and the United States. The artist possesses such cultural accumulations that are so typical of the East Asian area, as well as such broad international art vision. He is able to combine the ancient Japanese civilization and modern western civilization. And his works are filled with religious and mythological salvation as well as the reflection of human nature and desires.

In a set of graphical photography works, Shohei Kondo pays attention to the gradual change in color from blue to purple, and applies it into the process of doing patchwork to create the background. The simple and colliding art method helps present the artist’s thinking on objects as well as color itself. In western modern art, such artists as Pollock often tend to use very brilliant and shiny colors in their painting so as to express the ardent emotions from the inside of the artists. However, in this set of photographs by Kondo, the color he used is extremely peaceful, comfortable and natural. In fact, the artist has been under the influence of the Japanese Zen for a long time. In the Buddhist culture, there is such a famous saying as “color is just emptiness”. In the works of the artist, we can easily and obviously feel the emptiness behind the visible objects, which is actually about a vivid presentation of the aesthetics of the Zen.

Women and sex is another major theme of Shohei Kondo’s creation work. In a set of art works of

female bodies, the artist did not try to make some true copies of women’s bodies, nor did he try to present the physical structure of female bodies. Well, instead, he used some inspirational, moving and profound methods to express the lightness, swiftness and holiness of the female body. The entire set of works are filled with the ambiguity and metaphors of sex. The father of art history Aby Warburg ever paid attention to the flowing postures of the goddesses in some pictures, such as the Spring by Botticelli. Well, the female bodies created by Shohei also show more attention to the expression of the mobility as well as beautiful elegance of the females, as if they are some images and memory of one moment, which then came back to nothing as the desires faded away.

Shohei Kondo started to do some Zen meditation very often since he was very young. In his creation, the artist is able to take use of the advantages of the pop art and the Statsu and kren School and then to combine them with the Zen, religion and Taoism and some other thoughts in a natural and perfect way. His works have won many awards, and he has held multiple exhibitions in the United States, Japan and China, which have attracted wide attention from people and have received professional praises for his excellent art too.
