荷蘭畫家:Martine Johanna

Interview

Martine Johanna is a Dutch painter mostly known for her acrylic paintings on linen and wooden panels. Her works are hyper-saturated, seemingly light, but explore the duality between youthful naivety and anxiety-riddled adulthood. Female figures, fierce but fragile, often crowd the compositions and occupy the majority of the space gazing distractedly into the beyond. Making the viewer a voyeuristic part of the work. The paintings are visually stimulating and cheeky while expressing an underlying sense of uncertainty and unrest. Martine Johanna lives and works in Amsterdam.

Martine Johanna是一個荷蘭畫家,她最有名的就是亞麻布和木板油畫。她的畫風非常飽和明亮,主要探索年輕人天真的性情和成年人充滿焦慮兩者之間的雙重性。她畫的女性人像既強烈又脆弱,她的創作中常常會大量運用心不在焉的眼神凝視著遠方,并鋪滿整個畫面,令到觀賞者有一種窺探她畫作的感覺。當她想表達一些潛在的不確定性和焦慮不安的情緒時,她的畫作在視覺上是充滿刺激性和放肆的。Martine Johanna現時在荷蘭的阿姆斯特丹生活和工作。

1. When did your passion for painting start?

請問你什麼時候開始愛上畫畫?

I use to draw a lot a couple of years back, and did only seldom paint. The quality did not develop then, however when I decided to invest more time and effort into painting I found out I could actually express myself much better because of the addition of material and color.

我從幾年前開始畫畫,但當時畫得很少,所以畫作的水平沒有得到提升,然而當我決定將更多的時間和努力放在畫畫上时,我發現我能夠透過附加的物料和顏料更好地表達自己的感受。

2. In what way would you describe your works?

你會怎麼形容自己的作品?

I’m a Dutch painter mostly known for my acrylic paintings on linen and wooden panels. The works I make are hyper-saturated, seemingly light, but explore the duality between youthful naivety and anxiety-riddled adulthood. The alternation between figurative and abstract influences gives it an interesting tension for most people that are drawn to my work.

我是一個荷蘭畫家,大部分人認識我是因為我的亞麻布和木板油畫,我的畫風是非常飽和和明亮的,主要探索年輕人天真的性情和成年人充滿焦慮兩者之間的雙重性。我的作品交替運用了具象和抽象風格,從而形成有趣的對比,這也是讓最多人注意到的地方。

3. Do you have some special ideas that you would like to do?

請問你有沒有什麼特別的想法想去實現的?

Lot’s but I’m not going to share that ;)

有很多,但是暫時先保密 ;)

4. We noticed that your works are mostly paintings of female figures, who are they? What inspires you to do so?

我們注意到你的畫作以女性人像為主,請問她們是誰?是什麼激發你創作這些畫呢?

My models are friends and people I know and admire or find interesting, sometimes though I mess up the faces and mix up features that then start to resemble imaginary people or real ones. I do that sometimes when I have dreamt something strange like film stills of a mix of images I’ve seen that I try to catch on canvas.

我的模特兒是朋友以及一些我認識而且欣賞的人,或者是那些我覺得有趣的人。有時候我會將人臉及其特征混淆,在開始作畫時,我會把現實中的人和想象中的人融合。當我夢到一些奇怪的東西,像是混合的電影畫面,我會試圖抓住我所看到的並畫到畫布上。

5. Do you think your works are reflecting your attitude in life?

你認為你的作品正在反映你的人生態度嗎?

I wouldn’t describe it as reflecting attitude in life, but more parts of who I am and universal emotional connections that make us human.

我不會形容這是在反映我的人生態度,更多的是在反映我是誰及普遍的情感連結,而正是因為這些情感連結才使我們成為人類。
