发布时间:2019-10-26


Evan Hillis

美国艺术家


Evan Hillis is a young artist from Tempe, Arizona in the United States. He graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors of Fine Art with a focus on drawing and painting. Since graduation, he has been living both in China and America working as a freelance artist and designer, among other jobs. His recent focus has been in oil painting.


Evan Hillis是美国亚利桑那州坦佩市的一名年轻艺术家。他毕业于亚利桑那州立大学,主修绘画,拥有美术学士学位。毕业后,他在中国和美国两地生活,既是自由艺术家,也从事设计等工作,并专注于油画创作。

As a colorblind artist, color has always been a source of mystery for Evan. His education in university taught him a great deal about color schemes and how to use color to evoke emotion in a painting, even if he saw the colors differently than others. Evan really fell in love with oil painting at ASU. The experience of painting with oils is that of constant flux. The ability to paint “wet into wet” and blend colors on the canvas, even days later, makes the process of painting feel like working with a living thing. Coincidentally his work is very much base around how the living natural world is governed by structure and mathematical rules.


作为一名色盲艺术家,色彩一直是Evan创作的神秘源泉。他在大学里接受的教育教会了他很多关于配色的知识,以及如何在绘画中使用颜色来唤起情感,即使他看到的颜色与别人不同。Evan是在亚利桑那州立大学爱上油画的,他认为油画创作是恒定流量的一种体验。这种在画布上反复叠加创作和运用混合色彩的方式,即使隔一段时间后,也让人感觉这个绘画过程像是有生命一样。巧合的是,他的创作很大程度上是基于被结构和数学规则支配的周遭的自然世界。

Starting with studies in Sacred Geometry, Evan became fascinated with the underlying geometrics of the natural world. Ancient civilizations around the world depicted Sacred Geometry in their art, and later in the Renaissance period, other artists like  Da Vinci showed things like the Vitruvian Man, and used measurements like the Golden Ratio to measure proportions of the face and human body. In later years Hans Mandelbrot coined the term Fractal Geometry when creating equations, still used today, to describe the self-repeating mathematical nature of the world we live in.


Evan从研究神圣的几何学开始,就对自然界的基本几何着迷。世界各地的古代文明在其艺术中描绘了神圣的几何图形,文艺复兴后期,达芬奇等其他艺术家展示了维特鲁威人的样子,并用黄金比例来衡量他们的面部和人体比例。在后来几年,Hans Mandelbrot在创建方程时创造了分形几何这个术语,它至今仍被使用,并被用来描述我们生活环境的自重复数学性质。

Evan finds all this fascinating and attempts to explore that idea in his paintings. By using geometric patterns combined with natural forms or images, he seeks to bring to the attention of the viewer, that there is a method to the seemingly chaotic and random appearance of what we see everyday in the natural forms around us. Many earlier works display the “flower of life pattern” from Sacred Geometry, but more recently his work has begun to explore other types of geometric patterns and their significance based on the subject matter of the natural form being depicted. He uses everything from color, subject matter, texture, and pattern to tell a story and give the viewer a meaning beyond what is simply visible. Patterns in nature are everywhere we look, learning and understanding them is a major part of human evolution and our growth as a species.  


Evan觉得这一切都很吸引人,并试图在他的绘画中探索这一理论。他试图运用几何图案与自然形式及形象相结合的方式,来引起观众的注意,并用这种方法来让我们看到周围自然形态中杂乱无章的现象。他许多早期作品展示了神圣几何学中的“生命之花”图案,但最近他的作品开始根据所描绘的自然形式主题来探索其他类型的几何图案及其意义。他用颜色、题材、质地和图案等一切讲述一个故事,来告知观众除了简单可见的意义之外的其他含义。自然界的模式随处可见,学习和理解它们是人类进化和成长的重要部分。
