正如作家苏童所言：“这个男孩从不呆在他应该呆的地方。不在教室里，不在小床上…… 没有大人陪伴，更没有小女孩陪伴。他在积木上，他在废墟上……” 而画家自己也坦诚地说过，外在世界的影响是无法回避的，正是这样的时代造就了这样的你。[ 引用自李继开访谈]站在李继开的小男孩面前，我们更像是在阅读这一幅幅画作。而画家也经常通过写诗的方式将自己引入绘画的“进行”状态。

RHAPSODY | WHEN FASHION MEETS ART
JOYCE X Je | A Group Exhibition of
Bernard Buffet, Li Jikai And Luo Wei
JOYCE, the Asia’s fashion pioneer, will collaborate with Je Fine Art Gallery to present a project called “RHAPSODY” featuring both fashion and art at JOYCE store in Plaza 66 Shanghai from Oct 21 to Nov 27 this year. JOYCE’s pursuit of tastes and styles is not limited to fashion; with a profound passion in exploring of art world, JOYCE Gallery was established in French Royal Palace Garden in late 90’s to exhibit creations of international top artists and photographers in particular; the mission to discover the art and creativity continues in all JOYCE stores across Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai today. The exhibition by JOYCE and Je Fine Art Gallery will showcase various art pieces from French artist - Bernard Buffet, and two Chinese contemporary artists - Li Jikai and Luo Wei. The project also features an in-depth look at JOYCE’s creative fashion vision and how it corresponds to the world of art.
A Resonance Created by Art and Fashion, A Symphony of the West and the East.
More Fashionable than Fashion, More Artistic than Art.
Honored as “the successor of Picasso”, Bernard Buffet was one of the French contemporary superb painters. Like Picasso, Buffetshowed his talent as early as his childhood. In 1947, at the age of only 19, Buffet held his first exhibitionand all exhibited paintings were sold. Since then, instead of just observing, the French government and considerable museums started paying attention to him.
His painting style was formed around the period after WWII. Feelings like depression, desperation, upset, grief and indignation appeared frequently in works of middle-aged and young writers and painters. Such muted sorrow and violence were hidden in those sarcastic words and untamed brushes. As one of them, Buffet sketched his unique flat world with angular but fluid lines. His painted figures are often thin and slender. His still lifes and landscapes also bear a special sense of decadence and solitude. Even In the tide of abstract painting after WWII, the talented artist still insisted on painting figuratively and his charming works had moved a great many viewers
Interestingly, most paintings of Buffet are collected privately by his faithful supporters, and hence in the market scene even Christie's can only present one of his paintings each year for auction. Nowadays, his distinct art style are still liked by many people.
Besides Western artists, of course, JOYCE and Je also pay attention to the development of art of our domestic artists. Li Jikai and Luo Wei, two young Chinese artists born in 1970s, stand out particularly.
The imagination of human beings has always been expressed in art. For Li Jikai, he transforms his emotion and thoughts into the image of a little boy, who appears in his paintings from time to time.
As the famous Chinese contemporary writer Su Tong once said, “The boy stays in places where he shouldn’t have been. He’s not in the classroom, not in his bed…not with his parents or a girl…However, he’s on building blocks, amid the ruins…” The artist spoke sincerely once, “we can’t escape the influence of outside world because that’s what makes who we are in this day and this age”.[ From Li jikai's interview] Standing before the little boy in Li Jikai’s paintings, the viewers seem to be reading various stories. The painter also uses poetry-writing tobring himself into the state of “ contemplation” for art creations.
Through water-based acrylic, the poetic features and sensibilities in Li Jikai’s paintings are fully represented. In 2014, the painting titled Potato, one of his most important artworks, was exhibited in “Lijikai’s Solo Exhibition” in Amstelveen, Netherlands.
Artist Luo Wei often turns his lens to minute life cycles, such as the larvae of mosquitos, butterflies, and plants.
His butterflies and plants sometimes shown in the process of hatching, sometimes growing, and sometimes metamorphosing…The forms of life painted by Luo Wei have the poetic qualities of Tagore’s lines 'Let life be beautiful like summer flowers and death like autumn leaves.’
We can often find performative acts of paintings shown in Luo Wei’s different rendering of paints – acts like spreading, scraping and re-covering. The thick pigment creates a unique sense of visual “disorder,” and the artist refers it as “a visual enzyme.” The “chemical reactions” initiated by the enzymes are encoded by the artist, moving toward an order in a seemingly disorder. [ From POWER·Luo Wei]
In the space where art and fashion coexist, the symphony of these three great international artists are about lead you into wild fantasies.
