Amy Van Winkle
American, b.1970)

出生於美國麻州、定居於芝加哥,屬自學藝術家,自小便開始藝術創作,媒材包含炭筆、壓克力顏料、帆布及古書籍。創作理念受到大師 Gerhard Richter、Mark Rothko 及 Cy Twombly 啟發,以帶律動的線條及隱約結構的抽象畫著稱。在美展覽豐富,曾於 Freeport Art Museum 展出,獲眾多私人及包括荷蘭銀行在內等大型企業收藏。

Amy Van Winkle 擅長使用油彩及蠟彩(Encaustic)創作。油畫作畫過程中利用磨擦、刮除顏料等手法,表現時間性和不同層次間的對話,在不同技法、厚塗的肌理效果中,呈現細膩變化的細節。「蠟彩」技法源自於三千年前古希臘,主要使用在壁畫及架上繪畫。創作過程需將蜜蠟、松香脂、白蠟,融合松節油及樹酯熱處理後,直接在基底材表面上作畫。蠟彩畫有冷卻後定型的特性,耐久度極高,並能創造出如同油畫般的立體感、及水彩的輕透。

2019 於 Bluerider ART‘Daily Sentiments 凝結日常’群展,將展出其 Oil on Paper 油彩紙上、Oil on panel 油彩木板上創作,保留油畫厚塗的肌理,凸顯油彩顏料於不同介質上的豐富層次和透明感。Winkle 將個人經歷、以獨特技法編織敘事,引領觀者投入其看似簡單、卻情感深厚的作品中。
