张伟的青春系列作品把握的就是这样一种瞬间的状态,同样对青春的理解会有不同的角度的阐述云顶国际。  到北京好些日子了,每天总是东奔西跑,朋友们来来往往,本想安下心来完成我在广州创作的手稿制作,但终究没未能实现,这种浑沌的状态可能是进入创作前期的前奏吧,举目凝视工作室的时候,突然,想到曾经很早答应过为张伟写点什么?直到今天才匆匆提笔,真耽搁朋友的事儿。我认识的张伟是一位可信、友善、敏感、并且富有同情心的哥们儿,在生活的空间里,他会常常从他人的角度去理解你、接受你,他骨子里没有张扬性,有的是忍耐性,正因为他的忍耐性和敏感的气质,似乎奠定了他现在艺术上的认知能力和生活的状态。张伟的油画作品是以阳光、都市、青春作为主题,并而可以感受到他喃喃自语地诉说着流淌过的青春年华,同样,也是他内心生活中常常会掠过一道道儿的彩虹,这一瞬间的彩虹仍是他内心深处里充满生命的活力和青春的荡漾,这些内心的变化都使作品的画面流露出在期盼、等待之中的那种暖洋洋的快感。关于以青春、都市为题材的如:电影、实验戏剧、美术、文学、摄影等艺术领域里早就有不少作品涉及过,但是由于每个人的经历文化取向、甚至包括个人身体状况的不同,所诉说的感受和情绪、角度、快慢都各有不同,像那些激情与迷茫,美丽与脆弱、欲望与焦虑、阳光与黑夜、甜蜜与苦楚、收敛与纵欲、嫉妒与宽容、健康与糟糕等等等等,这些词儿都包涵了对青春意义上解读,的确如此,每个人由于各种因素差异,同样对青春的理解会有不同的角度的阐述,张伟就是其中一位,他选择了比较直接、直率、阳光、向上、活泼这一面的青春话语作母题,在他早期油画创作里多少带有一点调侃、暖味的色彩,他那时候的关注点是对都市空间的脆弱和生命模糊感带来无奈的一种阐释,这些充满活力与激情的血肉与都市虚构奢华的生活掺混在一块儿,使人感到那么的惆怅和不知所措,那是他在艺术上应用了城市的某种特征和青春符号隐喻了浮华、虚弱都市下的一种青春膨胀。在近期的作品中基本的关注点是一致的,不一样的就是他将前期的各种因素变得更直接、更单纯,油画语言的运用更加纯粹和自如,油画质材的运用、表述和主体形式了有机的结合,严格来说:他目前艺术语言是从凝重渐渐走向淡化和干净,我认为这种转化并不完全是单一的技术上的转变,而更多的是他自身的感受和生活的另一种领域空间里,受触动所带来的艺术状态的直接表现方式。我说过张伟是一个很自尊很敏感的人,并且对新生的事儿尽量给予很大的宽容和接受,在现实中期盼的好心情的确很美丽、很脆弱、也很残酷,因为当你把生命中最珍贵、最重要甚至最易碎的东西搁置在你认为安全的地方,好心情尤如好的一份爱恨交集的一份礼物似儿的,珍藏着、保护着、担心着一样,看!张伟的油画作品总是洋溢着明媚的阳光、那些光鲜的少男少女们欢快地扑腾跳跃,但里面却是夹杂着甜蜜后的忧伤、快感后的焦虑,那些给烈日照耀下的婀娜多姿的身影和头顶上晴朗耀人的光环,而这种光环来得是那么的短暂又那么的无奈和惆怅,这时期他是以这种感官方式来表达一种激亢的情欲。其实,好心情是张伟一幅作品的题目,我借用它是想说说张伟他对生活对春光无限、阳光灿烂下青春的一种理解和描述,写到这儿,我仿佛看见他带着敏感而温和的目光面向那流逝的青春岁月,目光里带有展望和无奈,从他的作品里是否在提醒着我们去找回那段已经离我们远去,或者是已经淡忘了的青春年华,虽然,远去的青春时代永远不会从那边儿回来,但是如果我们仍然朝那个方向遥望她的身影,咛听她美妙的声音、吸闻她的芬香,我想好心情将会靠近你,贴近你。

当我开始写这些文字的时候,我首先想到的就是――青春。从认识他开始,就不曾离开过青春的话题,曾有一度,我的电脑,甚至手机桌面都用了他的那幅《好心情》。其实,我刚接触张伟与他的作品时,并未有意识地去解读作品中的青春符号,而只是那么直接地被打动――被这没有属于青春的热情与躁动,却异常平静的不张扬的青春打动了。我将张伟的画作为镜头,去探究青春的命题。于是我看到的是当下的一代,在社会急剧变化的外部环境下,随之而来的好奇、兴奋、迷惘、彷徨却又充满憧憬、探究未来急切而复杂的心情。《花样年华》就是出色的青春系列作品,简洁的画面使女孩的形象显得格外突出,看似松散的人物关系暗喻着情绪上的反差巧妙的留白空间,似有期待,却又清醒。青春就是这样的一种状态,时而欣喜,时而忧伤,我们不知道将面临什么,却自信而坚定。我以为这是我们所处的时代共有的情绪。我们既在场,又置身于外,既经历现在,又隐喻未来。
张伟的青春系列作品把握的就是这样一种瞬间的状态。在他的作品里,看到的是青春的符号年轻的面孔、玫瑰花、魔方、可口可乐、肯德基、数码相机、CD光盘和变形金刚我们不知道画中的年轻人为何而笑,为何而愁,而这些支离破碎的符号,则迅速将画面的情绪植入到我们的时代中。瞬间,这些画中人便成了我们。这些或思考、或大笑、或跳跃、或弹奏吉他的年轻人,就构成了这个时代的青春群像,这些瞬间状态为我们展示了一个处于青春期社会的复杂心情,当中充满着憧憬与期待,夹杂些许疑虑,稍带困惑。我们就带着这样的心态与未来对话,与稍纵即逝的昨天对话,与自己内心深处的青春对话。相异于大量关于反叛、张扬、悸动的青春题材,张伟的青春系列作品则透着安静与自信,一位朋友曾这样描述张伟和他的画面:张伟不断地追求着平衡,生活中的平衡,感情中的平衡,画面中的平衡,色彩中的平衡。在他的画里所展示的青春是有生机、有活力的,但他却从不表现出青春的躁动不安,即使是明亮的色彩与跳跃中的人物组合在一起,都不会让你感到浮躁和张扬,张伟的性格里没有,我想他的画面也不会有。确实作品中人物所表现出来的真挚、率真与浪漫,都深深的透着张伟的个人气质,他的语言和情感似乎都毫不吝惜的全部挥洒在这些青春画面上了,它不一定给你震撼,只是这样的一个表达洁的符号,凝固的表情。我总认为青春的力量不是表现在力上的,而是表现在量上,这个量不是数量的量,而是含量,张伟的作品,很柔软,却有种说不上来的温柔的杀伤力。张伟心中那个充满理想现实主义的青春之码,于我似乎永远也无法解开,但他却用一种安静的告白方式,给我打开了一扇特别的、面向未来的、解读青春的门――青春在路上,年华永远花样。李纯2006年12月1日
于北京^_^ When I started writing this article, the first thing that
occurred to me was the idea of youth.From the time when I got to know
Zhang Wei, the topics we talked about never deviated from youth. There
was ever a period of time when the desk of my computer , and even the
one of my cell phone was put on the digital file of the painting of good
mood by Zhang Wei. Actually when I first got in touch with the paintings
from Zhang Wei, I did not intentionally interpret the symbols of youth
in his works, I was simply touched by its peacefulness and its
youthfulness in low profile, which was unusual from the enthusiasm and
restlessness normally attributed to youth.I look upon Zhang Weis
painting as a camera lens, which I use to probe into the proposition of
youth. And then I see different aspects of the complex mood of this
generation under the circumstance of rapid social changes: their
curiosity, excitement, perplexity and hesitation, as well as their
anxiousness and longing for the future. Flowery Age is a series of
outstanding works about youth, The succinct tableau makes the girls
image stand out particularly, the seemingly loose relationship of
characters implies the contrast of their emotionsThe space is left by
applying the artful margin leaving skill, and the characters seem to
expect something, while remain sober. That is the state of youth,
sometimes joyful, sometimes grieved. We dont know what is to come
across, but we still have confidence in ourselves, and thats we are
certain about. I think this is the sentiments we share in our times: to
be present while being kept out of it, to experience right now while
inviting future. The Youth series of works from Zhang Wei have grasped
that moment of the state of youth. In his works, we can perceive the
symbols of youth, such as young faces, roses, toy bricks, Coca cola,
Kentucky Fried Chicken, digital camera, CD disk and the transformers. We
dont know for what the young people in the paintings laugh and worry ,
but those shattered symbols immediately bring along the sentiments which
are running in our times. At that moment, these young people in the
painting are becoming those among us, who are pondering, laughing,
jumping or playing guitar, which makes up a group image of youth in our
times. These instantaneous conditions display a complex mood of a
society in its adolescence, full of longings and expectations, mingled
with some doubts and confusion. With this state of mood, we have
dialogue with our future, with the fleeting yesterday and with the youth
which are buried deeply in our hearts. Different from many other youth
themes such as rebellion, aggressiveness and the phenomenon of
heartbeat, the Youth series of works from Zhang Wei reflect the
peacefulness and confidence of youth. A friend points out in his comment
on Zhang Wei and his paintings: Zhang Wei has been unceasingly seeking
the balance in life, the balance in emotion, and the balance in tableau
and colors. The youth unfolded in his paintings is lively, but he never
shows the restlessness in his works, even the bright colors accompanied
with the jumping figures dont look impetuous and aggressive, these
characteristics we dont identify in Zhang Weis personality nor in his
paintings. Indeed, the sincerity, innocence and romance shown from the
characters in the works from Zhang Wei are deeply rooted in Zhang Weis
temperament. It seems that he has poured all his words and emotions into
these youthful tableaus. It doesnt have to bring you a shock, but simply
an expression a brief symbol and a frozen look. I always believe that
the power of youth is not expressed via the strength but the capacity,
which does not refer to quantity but content. The works from Zhang Wei
look soft, but they have a kind of indescribable tenderly killing
power.It seems that I can never break the youth code of idealized
realism which is hidden in Zhang Weis heart, but he opens a special door
toward future for us, a door to read youth in a peaceful way of
proclamation. Since the youth is on the path, the age will blossom
forever.Beijing, December 1st, 2006

云顶国际,2003年8月18日北京798厂

  It has been some days, since I arrived Beijing. Everyday I am
running around here and there doing something. Friends come and go. I
have planed to keep my mind on my work, especially to finish the sketch
that I have started in Guangzhou. But somehow it just could not be done.
Probably the chaos is a prelude of the earlier stage of creation. When I
look around the studio, it suddenly occurred to me that I have promised
to write a comment for Zhang Wei. I sit down right away and start to
write, with a sense of guilt that I have been holding it up for some
time. The Zhang Wei I know is a reliable, friendly, sensitive and
sympathetic pal. In day to day living, he always tries to understand you
and accept you from your angle. He has never been an arrogant guy. What
he has is patience and restraint. It is the patience, restraint and his
sensitivity that established the foundation of his faculty of reason and
state of living. The subjects of his works are brightness, city life and
youth. You can hear him murmuring the days of his youth, which has
flowed away. In his heart a rainbow rises, the rainbow of the love for
life, the rainbow of enjoying of youth. These internal changes reflect
on his painting and become a warm sensation of pleasure that he feels
while waiting and expecting.Youth and city life are frequent subjects
that has been talked about in many fields of art, like film, experiment
drama, painting, literature, and photograph. Because of the difference
of individual experiences and cultural orientation, even including
physical state, the feelings and sentiments of the individual, his angle
and speed of telling it is different. For example in the aspects of
enthusiasm and confusion; beauty and weakness; desire and anxiety;
brightness or darkness; sweetness or bitterness; restraint or
indulgence; envy or tolerance; health or sickness All these words can be
an interpretation of youth. In deed, because of all kinds difference,
everyone has a different understanding of youth. Zhang Wei has chose to
tell his stories in a frank, bright, optimistic and active way. In his
earlier works, the color is a little bit ironic and uncertain. At the
time his attention was on the interpretation of fragility of cities and
uncertain feelings of life. The mixture of vitality and enthusiasm of
the individuals and the fake luxury of city life make us feel depressed
and helpless. In order to express this, he uses some typical features of
cities and of youth to symbolize the expansion of youth in the fake
luxury and fragility of cities. In his lately works, his attention
remains the same. The difference is that the essential elements in his
earlier works become more direct and pure. His painting language is more
free and straight to the point. He combines the features of oil
painting, expressing method and the subject very well together. I can
say that his interpretation has come out of heaviness and gets into a
simple and clear state. This is not only a technical change, but also a
change in art accomplishment, which is influenced by a brand new
understanding of himself and of life. I have said that Zhang Wei is a
self-respect and sensitive person. He tries to tolerate and accept all
kinds of new things. To expecting a good mood in reality is in deed
beautiful, but it is also very fragile and cruel. The most precious,
important, but somehow fragile things in our life, we try to put it in a
safe place. A good mood is like a precious gift. We treasure it, protect
it and are afraid that it would be broken. Look, in his painting, it is
permeated with a warm and bright atmosphere. Boys and girls are jumping
for joy. But actually it is sorrow hiding behind sweetness, anxiety
after pleasure. Look at those graceful shapes in sun, above their heads
are shinning haloes. They will soon fade away. So sad! In this period he
tries to express an extreme desire through this kind of visual
impact.Actually, In Good Mood is the title of one of Zhang Wei s
paintings. I have borrowed it in order to explain his comprehension on
youth and the way that he expresses it in his paining. At this very
moment, I thing of him, as if he was looking back to his youth,
sensitively and tenderly. In his eyes there were both sadness and
expectation. Perhaps his works try to remind us to look back and search
that far away, maybe forgotten memory of our youth Although the passed
youth would not come back again, maybe we can still hear her lovely
voice and smell her sweet fragrance, if we just look over in the
direction that she leaves. I think, a good mood is coming close to you.
