Picasso Ceramics 不変の色彩を求めて

Osaka 2017.5.10 Wed → 5.31 Wed
Tokyo 2017.6.8 Thu → 6.29 Thu

           Pablo Picasso, 闘牛と太陽, 1953

この度、NUKAGA GALLERYは「Picasso Ceramics 不変の色彩を求めて」と題し、1940年代よりピカソがデザインした陶器作品に焦点を当てた展覧会を大阪、東京の2会場で開催致します。

20世紀を代表する芸術家として誰もがその名を知るパブロ・ピカソ。その制作活動は驚くほど広く、平面の絵画のみならず立体的な彫刻の分野にも関心を寄せていました。1937年の大作ゲルニカで世界的な芸術家としての地位を確立したのち、60歳代のピカソは、南フランスのヴァロリスで陶芸の魅力に出会います。そこでは、油絵具とは全く異なる焼成の加減や釉薬の発色など、初めて扱う素材に苦心しながらも、ヴァロリス・マドゥーラ窯の陶工の技術とピカソの大胆な発想によって独自の作品群が生み出されました。それらは、絵画や彫刻といったジャンルを超越したひとつの芸術として確立され、同時代の日本の陶芸家たちにも注目されました。

本展では、1940年から60年代のピカソの陶器など立体作品を中心に、油彩や版画作品をご紹介します。没後40年以上を経た今なお、世界で愛され一層の注目をあつめるピカソの陶器作品を是非ご覧ください。

Picasso Ceramics – Search for Unalterable Colour –

Pablo Picasso is widely acknowledged as one of the most iconic artists of the twentieth century and has had enormous influence on 20th century art. He worked with an unprecedented variety of styles, and was interested in sculpture in three dimensions as well as two-dimensional paintings.
His tour de force painting Guernica (1937) successfully made him known world-wide. His activities as an artist were not limited to painting alone. When Picasso was in sixties, he was truly fascinated with ceramics in the South of France at Vallauris. Picasso began his ceramic works there at Madoura Pottery studio and produced his unique ceramics with the unity of Picasso’s inventive ideas and potters’ technical skills.
Although he initially struggled with controlling unfamiliar materials and processes - a combination of chemistry such as glaze and firing – he gradually became more proficient at utilizing these into his repertoire. These works were also established in the art world and attracted a great deal of attention from the Japanese ceramic artists of his day.
In addition to his three-dimensional works produced from the 1940s to the 1960s, the exhibition will also offer the opportunity to see his celebrated artworks such as his oil painting and prints art. Picasso’s achievements continue to captivate the world even after the anniversary of his death over forty years ago.
We hope you will enjoy this revolutionary exhibit and experience a true legend in the field of ceramics.
