六角彩子簡介

六角彩子(1982年生於日本千葉)堪稱世界公民。她居於 葡萄牙,並在波圖、東京、柏林和阿姆斯特丹工作。她於 2002年創作了第一幅畫作,其特點在於徒手將塑膠彩塗抹 在紙板上,不久便獲得藝評人的青睞。2003年和2006年, 她先後於國際知名藝術家村上隆(Takashi Murakami, 1962 年生於東京)組織的東京青年藝術博覽會「藝祭」裡,贏 得奬項殊榮。

自2006年起,Gallery Delaive便成為六角彩子的藝廊經理 人,並於2007年為她舉辦首場個人展「Walkin’ Around Clouds」。其後,她在亞洲、歐洲和美國均有展出作品, 個人展遍及荷蘭鹿特丹Kunsthal藝術廳、斯洛伐克 Danubiana Meulensteen美術館,還有日本千葉縣立美術 館等。

繪畫技巧

六角彩子自學成才,雖然從未接受過任何藝術學院訓練, 但卻發展出一套獨特的繪畫技巧。她作畫前沒有預先構想 概念,僅憑直覺徒手將塑膠彩塗在畫布或紙板上,讓即興 的構圖逐漸浮現。飄浮半空的小花朵、動物和顱骨,組成 色彩繽紛的夢幻風景,而且畫中經常出現睜大雙眼與手臂 長長的漫畫風女孩。六角彩子認為,這些女孩是她表現個 性的一種方式。

該藝術家透過現場作畫示範繪畫技巧,其畫布闊度有時可 達七米。「我喜歡在比我身型大很多的媒介上作畫。我置 身於巨大的畫布前,在每個角落之間來來回回,顏料彷彿 於身體裡躍動奔流。」近年,六角彩子大膽試驗多種全新 技巧和物料,創作羊毛與紙板裝置、陶器及多層丙烯酸雕 塑等作品。
