大野智史來自坐擁樹海的富士山腳。那是個生死不斷循環的嚴苛地勢,也是如搖籃般孕育、滋養生命之處。受環境啟發,他的自畫像和描繪原始森林樣貌的作品,喚起了由野外壓力所激發的鮮明且固有的人性。此種繪畫表現是受到愛德華.孟克(Edvard Munch)、德國浪漫主義畫家卡斯巴.佛烈德利赫(Caspar David Friedrich)、表現主義畫家、和約瑟夫.博伊斯(Joseph Beuys)等人影響,特別是他們對於人類與自然關係的描述,「自我」在自然和社會中的發展,以及對繪畫的態度。

另一方面,他的「稜鏡」系列呈現人工幾何美學,象徵人類文明以及後現代世界激亢、猛烈進步的資本主義,同時探索純粹的美。從原始森林發展出的自畫像以及「稜鏡」中描繪的人類文明,兩者關係間的張力,和電影「2001:太空漫遊」裡巨大黑石板在人群和動物前出現的場景類似。

前任日本森美術館館長大衛.埃利奧特(David Elliott),從大野智史對自然的崇敬中看到神道教和密宗佛教的色彩,以及類似於新表現主義藝術家喬治.巴塞利茲(Georg Baselitz)和安塞姆.基弗(Anselm Kifer)的質感。身為年輕一代的日本藝術家,大野智史背負著超越像奈良美智(Yoshitomo Nara)、村上隆(Takashi Murakami)這類前輩藝術家的挑戰。在德國浪漫主義和表現主義中,大野智史習得如何看待自然、社會、宗教,他發展出自身的繪畫語言,以及向歷史和純藝術對話的方法。

大野智史,1980年生於日本岐阜縣,在2004年畢業於東京造型大學。曾於2010年於台北也趣藝廊參與群展,近年來則被選入東京原美術館(Hara Museum)、東京歌劇城市美術館(Tokyo Opera City Gallery)、大阪國立國際美術館(The National Museum of Art)等繪畫群展中,並由小山登美夫畫廊(Tomio Koyama Gallery)介紹於國際各大博覽會。此次「Come after Magic」展出作品以大野智史2015年創作的新作為主。

Satoshi Ohno is based in the foot of Mr. Fuji, which embraces ocean of trees. It’s a harsh environment where life and death are repeated, but is also like a cradle and mother’s body that gives birth and nurture various lives. Inspired by the environment, his self-portraits and paintings depicting primeval forests evoke sharp and inherent human senses that are vitalized by the natural pressures felt from the wilderness. For such artistic practice, Ohno have been influenced by Edvard Munch, the German Romanticism artists such as Casper David Friedrich, the Expressionism painters, and Joseph Beuys, for their descriptions and attitudes towards human-nature relationship, the development of “self” in the nature and society, and the treatments of paints.

On the other hand, his “Prism” series depicts geometrical and man-made beauty as a symbol of the human civilization, and the aggressive and violent progress of the post-modern worldwide capitalism, yet exploring something simply beautiful at the same time. The relationship between the self-portraits from primeval forests and the “prism” of human civilization may have similarity with the tension depicted in the scene where the black geometrical monolith appears in front of people and animals in the natural scenery in the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey”.

David Elliott, the former director of Mori Art Museum, saw colors of Shintoism or Esoteric Buddhism in Ohno’s awe of the nature, as well as senses akin to the artists of the Neo-Expressionism such as Georg Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer. As a Japanese painter from younger generation, Ohno works with the challenge of how to go beyond artists like Yoshitomo Nara and Takashi Murakami. He is exploring self-portraits that are different from those of the older generation, characterized as “neoteny”. Finding keys in the German Romanticism and Expressionism for the attitudes towards nature, society and religion, Ohno explores his original artistic language and the ways to communicate with history of fine art.

Satoshi Ohno was born in Gifu in 1980, graduated from Tokyo Zokei University in 2004. In 2010, he joined the group exhibition in Aki Gallery, Taipei. In recent years, his works have been exhibited in Hara Museum, Tokyo Opera City Gallery, and The National Museum of Art, Osaka. Satoshi Ohno is introduced by Tomio Koyama Gallery in international art fairs. The upcoming exhibition Come after Magic will present latest works of Satoshi Ohno in 2015.
