• Carol Prusa

    American, B.1956

    Carol Prusa 卡蘿.普魯莎(美國,b. 1956) 以 Silverpoint Drawing 銀針筆大型裝置著稱,現居住及創作於美國佛羅里達。普魯莎曾受邀參與備受國際尊崇的美國藝術暨文學學會 (American Academy of Arts and Letters) 邀請展,並獲全美十數間美術館與藝術中心收藏,包含紐約美術與設計博物館(Museum of Arts and Design)、佩雷斯美術館(Perez Museum of Art)、斯賓塞美術館(Spencer Museum of Art)與約翰.麥克.科勒藝術中心(John Michael Kohler Art Center)等。

     

    普魯莎為當代極少數使用銀針筆創作的藝術家,其使用媒材銀針筆的原理為利用銀製的金屬筆尖在物體表面做刻劃金屬成分隨時間氧化使得畫出的圖樣漸漸呈現,因筆觸細膩且畫過的痕跡無法拭去,繪畫時相當著重技巧與功力,每一次創作都需要長時間的意志力以及能精準掌握圖形比例的技術才能完成。在保有傳統繪畫技法之餘,普魯莎更持續將 此十四世紀文藝復興時期流傳的繪畫技術與新素材結合,如於作品內部嵌入光纖裝置或3D印刷技術,使銀針筆的效果更生動地呈現。
