Janna Watson
(
Canada, b. 1983)

珍娜.華生 Janna Watson (加拿大, b. 1983),目前創作及居住於加拿大多倫多。擁有安大略藝術與設計學院的繪畫榮譽學位。華生Watson以抽象繪畫作為逃避及回歸現實的方式,當她將我們所認知的世界非物質化為筆觸,她的繪畫也以鮮明的構圖與色彩喚起觀者的情感。受到古典構圖及現代主義幾何的影響,她的作品優雅卻充滿力量,以離散卻又無法分割的色塊組合成束的色彩。曾多次參與國際展覽,包括多倫多藝術博覽會、邁阿密 CONTEXT 藝術博覽會和西雅圖藝術博覽會等,作品由麗思卡爾頓(the Ritz-Carlton)飯店、薩克斯第五大道精品百貨(Saks Fifth Avenue)、紐約HBC全球藝術收藏(HBC Global Art Collection)、加拿大高級摩天公寓Aura、Soho Metropolitan飯店及金融機構美國TD銀行、加拿大帝國商業銀行等機構永久收藏。

華生Watson 以抽象繪畫作為逃避及回歸現實的方式,當她將我們所認知的世界非物質化為筆觸,她的繪畫也以鮮明的構圖與色彩喚起觀者的情感。受到古典構圖及現代主義幾何的影響,她的作品優雅卻充滿力量,以離散卻又無法分割的色塊組合成束的色彩,華生Watson將她各種筆觸和混合顏料稱之為「瞬間」,每個瞬間都有各自的情感重量與敘事權重,她以獨樹一幟的風格與概念與當代環境相互呼應,而非只是將抽象繪畫退卻到一個無法辨識的領域。筆刷俐落的劃過又轉向折疊,細緻而剛硬的墨線作為基礎元素,切入了繪畫領域,所有元素在畫面上構成緩慢而多彩的漸層,這些背景溫柔地指向熟悉的事物。華生Watson 所做的是給予繪畫一個空間,讓它在自己的時間內揭示自己。
