Bryan Ida
(American, b. 1963)

Bryan Ida 畢業於聖荷西州立大學,主修電子音樂編曲,居住及創作於美國洛杉磯。師承美國著名抽象畫家 Sam Francis山姆.法蘭西斯(1923-1994),Ida 在承襲 Sam Francis奔放洋溢色彩的同時、也融合自身來自音樂性的感知,發展出獨樹一幟的以壓克力結合環氧樹脂(Epoxy)、聚酯纖維(Polyester)的多層次堆疊的四度空間表現形式,與城市和自然進行對話。多次於美國知名博物館及美術館展覽,包含蘭開斯特藝術與歷史博物館(Lancaster Museum of Art and History)、河濱市美術館 (Riverside Art Museum)、托倫斯藝術博物館 (Torrance Art Museum)、長灘美術館 (Long Beach Museum of Art)、洛杉磯當代藝術美術館 (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles)等。作品永久收藏於加利福尼亞州迪賽塞特博物館(De Saisset Museum)、微軟(Microsoft)與杜邦 (DuPont™ Genencor® Science)等矽谷高科技公司。

純熟的環氧樹酯創作技術,使 Ida在繪畫上擁有空間感的鋪述,早期透過6-7層(環氧)的繪畫堆疊,讓二維的平面築起三維的視界。近期開始運用聚酯纖維作為創作素材,利用輕透的特性,交疊200層的繪畫與聚酯纖維材料,使畫面內容與細節處理愈趨細膩豐富。對Ida 而言,記憶是情感化後的經驗,存在著與之呼應的形影,他以成層堆疊和埋藏的手法保留三度空間加上時間的四度表現。

Bryan Ida 以鮮活的色調詮釋經典的城市與地景想像外,更在都市人文成分中加入自然的面向,「沿岸 (Littoral)」系列創作,「沿岸」是海陸相交的地帶,亦即兩個截然不同世界的交集處,不同於以往分明且獨立的城市形象,以水波的形式柔化了畫面,引出文明與自然互動的思考,同時也將城市議題更廣泛的延伸與擴展。伊達對光、色彩與構圖的著迷與追尋創作出交錯重疊的意象,不僅提供空間上寬闊的視野,更得以將想法與影像植進結構中,使每道構面均與其他層次發生互動、產生連結,而同時也保有分離且獨立的特性,如同不斷堆疊地各個聲部,奏出首首屬於城市的交響樂章。
