About 李松松

李松松于1973 年生于中国北京,1992 年从中央美术学院附中毕业后,随即进入中央美术学院学习油画专业,并于1996 年获得学士学位。作为中国当代绘画的领军人物之一,李松松一直以来都是国内外展览及艺术评论的焦点。他的作品多以老照片为基础,暗示、表现或重述重大政治或历史事件;并以强烈的笔触和色块树立起鲜明且极富浮雕感的绘画风格。最终的作品往往会保留一部分图像原本的痕迹,但在作品与图像之间始终保持着一定的距离。李松松曾在国内外多次举办个展,并受邀参加世界范围内的多项大型展事。李松松于2011年获得马爹利非凡艺术人物大奖。艺术家目前工作和生活于北京。

Press Release

  • Li Songsong

    2012.09.22 — 10.20 佩斯北京荣幸地推出“李松松”个展。本次展览是艺术家在佩斯北京举办的第二次个展。 李松松独特的图像运用和处理手法已为他赢得国际盛誉。艺术家此前在抽象艺术与表现形式方面多有尝试和探索,本次展览则将这一努力推向极致。李松松延续了其极具辨识度的厚涂色彩,释放了颜料本身物理性的独特魅力,彻底颠覆了传统结构。与以往不同的是,李松松停止了对政治及历史图像的拆解与重构,彻底消除和拒绝了具体的描绘对象。观众将无法诉诸于艺术想象或人物形象来获得对作品的理解,被迫从自身经验出发而构建起自己的诠释。正因于此,这件作品划清了同“教育性”或“教育意义”的界限。 艺术家拒绝为此次展出的作品提供叙述与诠释,将“发现”的可能性留给了观众。这同时这也是一次感知经验的重生,无论对观众还是艺术家本人都是如此。李松松仅仅邀请我们体验这件作品所带来的挑战:通过个体感官去发现和探寻色彩与颜料本身的特殊意义。 李松松于1973年生于中国北京,1992年毕业于中央美术学院附中,1996年毕业于中央美术学院油画专业并获学士学位。他曾在国内外多次举办个展,并受邀参加世界范围内的多项大型展事,与他合作过的国际知名艺术机构包括旧金山现代美术馆、纽约MoMA PS1、加州大学伯克利分校美术馆、伯尔尼美术馆、汉堡市立美术馆、伦敦萨奇画廊、北京尤伦斯当代艺术中心等。他曾受邀参加2007年莫斯科双年展的特别项目“透过玻璃”。李松松于2011年获得马爹利非凡艺术人物大奖。艺术家现工作和生活于中国北京。

Li Songsong's second solo exhibition is on view at Pace Beijing through October 20. The internationally acclaimed image-maker has taken forays into abstraction and alternative forms before, but with this work, Li Songsong literally inverts his signature impasto oil on aluminum medium turning the traditional structure inside out. However, instead of dismantling and reconstructing found imagery from historic and often politically charged photographs, the artist has chosen to depict nothing. Ther

Juicy painting and the big visual statement are both alive and well in China today. If you have any doubt, check out the 11 large-scale oil paintings by Li Songsong now on view, through Aug. 5, at Pace Gallery's 534 West 25th Street location. The show, Li's first U.S. solo, provides American viewers an impressive introduction to the 38-year-old artist, who is well known in the People's Republic for super-thick paint and blocky compositions that seem to waver halfway between their photographic so

This spring, celebrated Chinese artist Li Songsong will be presenting his first solo show in the United States. From May 6 to August 5, his work will be on exhibit at the Pace Gallery’s space at 534 W. 25th St. Photographs are often considered irrefutable records of the past. When these records are altered, how does this then alter one’s perception of preceding events? This is a question that Li has been examining throughout his already highly acclaimed career. By applying impasto painting techn
