about the artist

潘德海(1956—)吉林四平人。1982年畢業於東北師範大學藝術系油畫專業。代表作品有《掰開的苞米系列》、《火紅的年代系列》、《勞動者系列》、《胖子系列》、近期的《小時候系列》、《人間戲劇系列》等。代表論文有《想像與行動的對話》等。

潘德海是「西南藝術群體」中傑出的代表人物之一。與張曉剛、毛旭輝有「西南三劍客」之稱。1985年,潘德海同毛旭輝、張曉剛等人在上海、南京舉辦了《新具像》畫展。次年,同毛旭輝、張曉剛等人成立了「西南藝術研究群體」。1987年開始在紙上進行「苞米」這一特殊圖像的實驗和探索。1989年「苞米」系列作品入選中國美術館舉辦的《中國現代藝術展》。

 

從成熟的「苞米」系列開始,潘德海找到了屬於自己的符號形態,在視覺語言上確立了自己的獨特風格,思想上找到了載體與歸宿。約90年代後期,潘德海對「苞米」這一符號進行了改造與延伸,以《頭髮越來越少》為起點,正式開始了第二個符號——「胖子」系列的創作。「胖子」是一個導索或載體,真正想表達的是在政治濃度越來越低的時候,時代迎來新的問題和困惑。作品中「胖子」的形象豐滿遲鈍,充滿了慾望。與「苞米」系列深刻、沉郁風格完全不同的是,「胖子」這一全新視覺符號中增加了可以任意解釋的象徵、隱喻和諷刺趣味。色彩上,「胖子」系列逐漸從最初的灰調子,變得鮮亮而具有裝飾性,畫面中也出現了更豐富的題材,不同情境胖子的「臉色」也在變化著。近年的「小時候」系列和「人間戲劇」系列更以胖子描繪出中國於60至70年代間的趣聞軼事和帶入政治意義遠遠超過文藝價值的樣板戲裡。潘德海的繪畫語言日趨完整,表達的東西也越來越清晰。
