寓言現實主義 藝術家Kevin Sloan

美國藝術家 Kevin Sloan 的作品被稱為當代現實主義,在她的作品中,你會發現他特別愛採用動物、茶杯、時鐘作為作品的主角,並傳達出某些寓意。
而最令實驗員印象深刻的,其實是他帶有藍色花紋的動物系列,因為這些紋路總讓實驗員不禁聯想到青花瓷呢XDD

Appropriating the aesthetic of John James Audubon, Kevin Sloan explores the poetic dimensions of nature using a representational, scientific style. His images of the natural world feature intricately rendered birds that evoke Audubon’s realist approach and taxonomic faithfulness. Yet Sloan, aware that photography has supplanted the need for such realistic paintings, incorporates surrealist and vanitas elements into his work. “Freed from the need to describe for science, I can describe the natural world and our interaction with it through an allegorical, social, and political lens,” he has said. For example, in Sloan’s paintings, a bird may clutch a timepiece or poke its head out from a vanitas-style arrangement of fruit. Subtly allegorical, his work probes the relationship between humans, animals, and nature in the contemporary world.
