简介

来自纽约画家 Alyssa Monks,她曾经三次获得 Elizabeth Greensheilds Foundation 的绘画大奖,在纽约以及加州都举行过个人的展览。
Alyssa的油画作品充满了引诱与幻想的感性色彩,有着极高的解剖学和现实的准确度,这需要有丰富的细节经验与绘画技巧。
其画风极其写实,她描绘特定明确的时间及地点,同时又掺杂了超然以及移情作用的元素在她的作品里。她对玻璃和水滴的处理效果和把控能力更是达到了极致。
初看她的画,会产生幻觉和疑问:这到底是不是画,还是相片?尤其是在浴室和泳池等水中环境下的人物绘画,将生动的人体置于水底,蒸汽,水珠,玻璃等透明介质下,通过对形象的扭曲和抽象加工,造成了更强烈的真实感。她画笔下的浴女形象更是成为继德加之后对浴女的最有代表性的当代阐释。她的作品被称为“照相写实主义”的新一代画家代表,但她本人不认可这一称号。

我追求的是“不完美”的季节,期望展示出真实的美丽,而不是那些理想化的东西,她说,我认为往往是我愿意放开身心的意愿使我能够捕捉到脸部和身体里一些有趣的惊喜。-Alyssa Monks


Born 1977 in Ridgewood, New Jersey, Alyssa Monks began oil painting as a child. She studied at The New School in New York and Montclair State University and earned her B.A. from Boston College in 1999. During this time she studied painting at Lorenzo de’Medici in Florence. She went on to earn her M.F.A from the New York Academy of Art, Graduate School of Figurative Art in 2001. She completed an artist in residency at Fullerton College in 2006 and has lectured at universities and institution nation wide. She has taught Flesh Painting at the New York Academy of Art, as well as Montclair State University and the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts.

"Using filters such as glass, vinyl, water, and steam, I distort the body in shallow painted spaces. These filters allow for large areas of abstract design - islands of color with activated surfaces - while bits of the human form peak through. In a contemporary take on the traditional bathing women, my subjects are pushing against the glass “window”, distorting their own body, aware of and commanding the proverbial male gaze. Thick paint strokes in delicate color relationships are pushed and pulled to imitate glass, steam, water and flesh from a distance. However, up close, the delicious physical properties of oil paint are apparent. Thus sustaining the moment when abstract paint strokes become something else."

"When I began painting the human body, I was obsessed with it and needed to create as much realism as possible. I chased realism until it began to unravel and deconstruct itself,” Alyssa states, “I am exploring the possibility and potential where representational painting and abstraction meet - if both can coexist in the same moment."

Monks's paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions including "Intimacy" at the Kunst Museum in Ahlen, Germany and "Reconfiguring the Body in American Art, 1820–2009" at the National Academy Museum of Fine Arts, New York. Her work is represented in public and private collections, including the Savannah College of Arts, the Somerset Art Association and the collections of Howard Tullman, Danielle Steele and Eric Fischl.

Alyssa has been awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant for Painting three times and is a member of the New York Academy of Art's Board of Trustees. She is currently represented by David Klein Gallery in Birmingham, Michigan. Alyssa currently lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York.
