About Georg Baselitz - 关于乔治·巴塞利茨

 

Georg Baselitz (b.1938) is a German painter, sculptor and graphic artist. In the 1960s he became well known for his figurative, expressive paintings. Georg Baselitz is one of the most prominent visual artists of his generation. He works with sculp­ture, drawings and graphic art, but is best known for his characteristic paintings whose subjects are often shown "upside down" in order to stress that the picture is a painted surface rather than a painted subject.

His work has developed in the arena of the reception of German expressionism on the one hand, and the lightness of American painting (Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning) on the other. Since 2006 he has produced so-called remix paintings in which, with an unprecedented lightness of touch, he re-examines the iconography of his own historical works.

 

乔治·巴塞利茨1938年生于东徳,在西柏林学习绘画和雕塑。现工作居住于德国和意大利。

巴塞利茨是他那一代最杰出的视觉艺术家之一。他的创作包括雕塑、素描和版画,以风格独特的绘画闻名,画中“倒置”的主体强调着绘画其实是一个被涂抹的平面而非被描述的主题。

他的作品在德国表现主义脉络中发展的同时兼具美国绘画的轻亮(如杰克逊·波洛克,威廉·徳·库宁)

巴塞利茨的“英雄”系列、手指画、断裂、俄罗斯绘画,这些关于他在德国过往的作品几乎被世界上所有杰出的美术馆收藏。自60年代末,巴塞利茨就开始展现过人的视觉洞见,以倒置的方式超越绘画的主体,呈现出具象和抽象独特的同时性。自2006年起,他开始了“再混合”的创作,即通过前所未有的明亮笔触,重新检视自己创作过的标志性作品。
