Roaming the Netherlands 荷蘭散散步
Group exhibition of Jim Harris, Mari Stoel, Stella de Kort 吉姆・哈里斯、馬里・史鐸、史黛拉・德科特聯展
The Netherlands is the home of the great artist Vincent van Gogh and also a country renowned for art and design. We are very pleased to invite three well-known artists from the Netherlands to hold a group exhibition, and take us to roam the Netherlands.

Jim Harris is at his best when painting outdoors. He has been "recording" time outdoors for many years, and his works are full of impressionism and expressionism. The reflections in the water under his brush are vivid and lively. Seen from a distance, they are the shadows of the clouds and the sky, but up close, they are ingenious and appropriate colors and composition. Harris’s "Coulissen" landscape outlines the light and shade in the distance like clouds and flowing water. From the canvas, we seem to see him trying to capture the trace of time in a short window.

The works of Mari Stole show the development of his style from figurative to abstract in the past fifteen years. Like Harris, he is inspired when painting outdoors. His brushstrokes are full of power, and his smooth lines make us feel the wind lingering among the leaves, smell the cool air in the summer park, enjoy the enthusiasm of the sun and the dynamic atmosphere.

Stella de Kort also loves to trace things outdoors. The unique sensitivity, concentration and patience of female artists make her paintings full of detail and intriguing humor. In the paintings she created for the historic Cafe of Schouw in Rotterdam, you can see her excellent ability to tell wonderful stories with her pen.

荷蘭,是偉大藝術家梵谷的故鄉,也是藝術設計之國。我們很高興邀請到三位來自荷蘭的知名藝術家舉辦聯展,帶我們到荷蘭四處走走看看。
 
吉姆・哈里斯擅長寫生,他長年在戶外「紀錄」時光,作品帶有印象派與表現主義的色彩。他筆下的水中倒影靈動活潑,遠看雲影天光,近看則是巧妙高明又恰到好處的色彩與構圖;哈里斯的「庫里森」風景則行雲流水般勾勒遠近明暗,我們從畫布上,彷彿看到了他在有限的時間裡,試圖捕捉光陰的軌跡。

馬里・史鐸的作品,呈現了他十五年來從具象到抽象的風格發展。與哈里斯一樣,他擅長戶外寫生,筆觸充滿力量,流暢的線條讓我們彷彿看到了風在樹葉間逡巡、聞到夏天公園裡的清涼氣息、感受到陽光的熱情與充滿動感的氛圍。

史黛拉・德科特也喜歡在戶外描摹事物。女性藝術家特有的敏銳、專注與耐心,讓她的畫作充滿細節的堆疊鋪陳與耐人尋味的幽默。她為歷史悠久的鹿特丹舒夫咖啡館所創作的畫,可以看到她以畫筆說出一個個精彩故事的卓越能力。
