Hoohewahewa | Sean Scully, 'SQUARE'

Hale Hōʻikeʻike Kerlin; 14 Mei - 25 Iune 2022

ʻO Sean Scully, 'SQUARE', nānā hoʻonohonoho; kiʻi mahalo ʻia e ka mea pena kiʻi a me Kerlin Gallery. ʻO Sean Scully, 'SQUARE', nānā hoʻonohonoho; kiʻi mahalo ʻia e ka mea pena kiʻi a me Kerlin Gallery.

Mai Kazimir Malevich iā Josef Albers, ua hoʻohanohano ʻia ka huinahā no kona ʻano maʻalahi, e kōkua ana i ka hoʻohua ʻana i nā manaʻo mai ka mea ʻike wale a hiki i ke kiʻi. Ma kēia hōʻike o 100 mau hana, i hōʻike ʻole ʻia ma ke ʻano o ka manawa a ʻoi aku i ʻoi aku ma mua o ʻelima mau makahiki o ko Sean Scully ʻoihana, ʻo ka 'square' kekahi mea pono a maʻamau. He mea koʻikoʻi ko mākou wahi i ka manawa iā Scully, ʻo ia ka mea i ʻōlelo ʻia i loko o kahi ninaninau hou aku nei, "ʻO ka nīnau, ua uhi paʻa ʻia ʻoe i ka lole o kou manawa, a i ʻole hiki iā ʻoe ke lele i waho a me ka manawa huakaʻi, a ua ʻike mau wau Ua makemake au e hana i ka hope”.

ʻO ka mea kahaha loa ma ʻaneʻi ʻOhi ʻAlani Grid (1972 - hana hou i ka makahiki 2020), he lattice aluminika, ʻeha paʻa i nā ʻāpana kala. Hoʻopalupalu ʻia ka pahu metala (ua hana mua ʻia me ka lāʻau) a - àʻia ʻO Christo lāua ʻo Jeanne-Claude - i ʻike hou ʻia no ka hūnā ʻia. Hoʻopili ka lole ʻokoʻa i ka like ʻole o ka hale, me kahi kihi ʻalani ʻole e hāʻawi ana i nā wahi ʻulaʻula ʻeleʻele, hina a ʻeleʻele. He mea ʻokoʻa loa ka hana; he hui puliki o ka manaʻo hoʻopaʻa ʻia a me ke ʻano o ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, e like me ka lālā prosthetic i hoʻopaʻa ʻia i loko o nā kāʻei superfluous. 

He mea pohihihi, akā ʻoi aku ka maʻamau, ua kapa ʻia kahi pena kiʻi nui ma ka hōʻaiʻē mai IMMA Brennus (1979). Ua kapa ʻia ʻo Gaul weliweli, ʻo kona mau ʻāpana ʻeleʻele o ka waina a me ka ʻeleʻele he makapō malu, e huki iā ʻoe i ka pouli. Ma kona hema, ʻoi aku ka liʻiliʻi, punchier, ka lole monochrome, Pena Polū Liʻiliʻi #3 (1977) like austere, me ka lahilahi loa a me ka ʻaleʻale ākea e hoʻokumu ana i kahi ʻili poʻo maikaʻi āu e makemake ai e strum. 

Hoʻololi ka hana a Scully ma waena o ka monumental a me ka pili, kahi dichotomy i maopopo loa ke hoʻololi ʻo ia i ka pepa. ʻO ka loaʻa ʻole o nā ʻōlelo nui i kāna mau paʻi, pastel, a me nā kala wai e hāʻawi iā lākou i ka maʻalahi, kahi ʻano e hiki ke manaʻo ʻia e ka manaʻo nui o kāna mau hana ikaika ma nā pāpaho ʻē aʻe. He pena wai hou, Robe Diptych (2020) nani. Rectilinear ma ke ʻano holoʻokoʻa, aia i loko o ka haku mele he 24 mau ʻāpana kala i hoʻopaʻa ʻia, paʻa i loko o ka pā aniani. Hoʻomanaʻo ʻia wau i kahi hoʻonohonoho wai, nā keke kala ʻaoʻao ma kahi ʻaoʻao i ka hana, me ka ʻike ʻole. ʻAʻohe oʻu manaʻo inā he manaʻo kēia manaʻo i kāna hana ponoʻī, akā ʻoluʻolu ka nānā ʻana iā ia. Ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻē aʻe, ʻo ke kala wai nui, Pāha ʻEleʻele 1. 26. 20 (2020) ʻano palahalaha ma ka hoʻohālikelike ʻana, ʻelima mau kala ʻokoʻa ʻokoʻa ʻaʻole lawa ka hoʻopaʻapaʻa e laka a paʻa ʻia paha ma kahi o ka waena ma lalo, ke ʻano titular.

Aia kekahi mau kiʻi pena ma nā panela alumini. ʻO kahi liʻiliʻi, ʻAina Hui Pū ʻEleʻele (2021) ua hoʻohālikelike pono ʻia – ua like ia me ka nui o ka puke ʻano nui – me nā pūʻulu kala jellybean i kahakaha ʻia e kahi mea hoʻokomo ʻeleʻele. Akā, ʻaʻole i ʻoluʻolu ke kākoʻo metala i loko o kona kapa pena. He mea ʻē paha ia, akā ʻo ka ʻano a me ka kokoke o nā hana i loko o ka hale kiʻi e koi iā ʻoe e ʻike i nā kikoʻī. Impervious i ka lewa, he alumini panel i ka pono o ka paʻa, akā, he autonomy unsympathetic ke pena, ke kākoʻo me he mea lā e ʻae aku ma mua o ka hoʻokipa ʻana. Pāpā ʻulaʻula uliuli (2020), no ka laʻana - ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi o ka ʻoluʻolu, ka mea a me ke kākoʻo hou aku. 

I loko o kahi ʻano nui o nā paʻi puaʻa archival i hana ʻia ma ka iPhone o ka mea pena, 'The 50' (2021), ua hoʻopā ʻia paha ka pale, akā ʻo nā kiʻi i paʻi ʻia mai kēlā ʻaoʻao o ka ʻili, ʻaʻohe manaʻo maoli. Puhi ʻia i ka pālākiō, lilo lākou i mea like ʻole, e like me nā hana ʻuhane i ka ʻimi ʻana i ke kino. Wall Plena (2021) paʻa i nā ʻāpana oblongs o ka pena i kāhili ʻia i loko o kahi hoʻonohonoho hoʻohālikelike o nā waihoʻoluʻu jarring. Ke kulu nei ka pena wai a holo i nā wahi e pili ana, ua hoʻonui ʻia ke ʻano o ka hoʻohaumia ʻana e nā hōkū o nā puʻupuʻu liʻiliʻi a me nā ʻāpana pena, i hoʻopuehu ʻia e like me nā floaters ma kāu ʻike. Ke holo nei naʻe ka manawa, ʻo kēia kiʻi pena - me nā hana ʻē aʻe he nui ma ʻaneʻi - mālama i ka manaʻo o ka hōʻea ʻana, ka ʻike paʻakikī pinepine o ka hele ʻana mai i ka honua.

ʻO John Graham kahi mea pena kiʻi i hoʻokumu ʻia ma Dublin.
