バオ・ベイ

1960年安徽省生まれ。1984年に中央美術学院(CAFA)版画科を卒業し、1987年にニューヨークに移住。2003年に帰国し、現在は北京を拠点に活動している。

バオ・ベイの芸術スタイルは、彼女の人生経験の集大成である。10年間油絵での創作を経て、ある日、手触りの良い手製の紙とテンペラトナーの小瓶、そして木版インクの香りが、作家に長い間忘れていた記憶を呼び覚ました。中央美術学院(CAFA)版画科での木版画の経験をもとに、筆の代わりにナイフを手に取り、再び木を彫り始めると、伝統的な木版画の制作に留まらず、鑿で彫り、手で描き、インクとテンペラトナーを組み合わせるなど、作品がベストの状態になるまで覆ったり壊したりを繰り返した。版画と油絵という異なる創作スタイルを融合させたことで、作家は新たな言語の構築と破壊を繰り返している。10年近くにわたりスタイルと素材の間で絶え間ない仮定と実験を行なった結果、現在のミクスト・マテリアル絵画と紙を使った光のインスタレーション作品が形成された。

作家の創作プロセスは、感情を言葉に記録し、それを絵画というメディアに落とし込み、最終的に多層的な構成とレイアウトに挑戦する行為である。感情の爆発である彼女のイメージは複雑なサイクルの中で極めて多層的であり、抑制された中で解放され、無限の中で表現力豊かな形に到達し、回帰し、静止する。
