Making Colour

18 June – 7 September 2014 Sainsbury Wing Exhibition Admission charge ‘Making Colour‘展覽正在國家畫廊展出,是最近特別有意思的一個展覽。和其他藝術展覽不同, 這次展出的是通過對顏色的製作和工藝發展作為線索來進行策展,以顏料作為策展線索的展覽確實很少見。展覽不僅彙聚了很多大師的作品,比如莫奈、德加、范艾克等等,同時也從其他的博物館借來了很多和顏料製作相關的實物展品,比如青金石、中國青花瓷器等等。 整個展覽將西方顏料製作和繪畫之間的歷史娓娓道來,講述了從中世紀一直到19世紀的發展歷程。不難看出,一直以來,科技的發展也是推動藝術領域開拓和創新的一個不可或缺的動力,其中“藍色”的發展最為具有特色,由於青金石產地阿富汗距離歐洲路途遙遠,所以很長一段時間以來,這種準寶石類的礦物顏料的價格居高不下,比黃金還要昂貴的繪畫材料當然也只有少部份人才能享用,在尋找替代品的過程中,出現了使用不同工藝和化學材料的創造“藍色”的方法,當然,展覽也展出了用不同的藍色顏料製作的畫作,大家可以自己去體會每種顏料呈現的不同韻味的“藍色”。值得一提的是展覽中特別展出了當代藝術家Roger Hiorns的一件作品,他用化學品將一個廢棄的政府廉租房的單元改造成一個藍色水晶組成的“水晶宮”,現在這件作品被陳列在約克郡的雕塑公園。 展覽涉及到了色彩理論,顏料製作傳統工藝,使用方法以及現代色彩的應用和發展。分為紅、黃、藍、綠、紫、金、銀等幾個板塊。
