Kampen - Wereldstad in een notendop.

Wat een geweldige Facebook pagina: Kampen - Wereldstad in een notendop. Vol met geweldige nostalgische foto's van Kampen, zoals deze viskraam - van de zelfde familie als waar we nu nog 2-3 keer per week vis van kopen op de markt.

Where art meets fashion

In the period around the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, from early 2010 to mid 2011, Lu Schaper (top left in the picture) worked as a freelance artist with the famous high-end fashion chain Shanghai Story. She was invited to bring in her artist's point of view and local Shanghai experience, which resulted in about a dozen of scarf designs, based on paintings she created for this purpose. The themes for the scarves were varied, and included for instance a Puxi/Pudong (Old and New Shanghai) comparison, a motive inspired by the expo buildings from twenty different countries, and a classical Chinese Buddhist theme with seven lotus flowers. These silk and pashmina scarves have been selling very well in the various stores of this chain, including their shops at the Huahei Road (former Avenue Joffre), the main fashion shopping street of Shanghai. They have contributed considerably to the continued rise of this brand's reputation and success. Her work has also been used for interior and exterior decoration of shops and offices of Shanghai Story. She was interviewed in the popular blog Shanghaiist based on this work (link). It was an intensive and challenging, but satisfactory period for her as an artist, having to deal with market requirements and deadlines. She has said about it: "Painting is like playing a solo instrument, designing scarves is more like playing in an orchestra.".

Lu Schaper is no longer working with Shanghai Story, but she still has plenty of ideas to use her unique art, with both Oriental and Western influences and experience,  for high quality fashion and interior decoration purposes. Examples could be scarves, dresses, umbrellas, handbags, jewelry, pillows, sheets, curtains, china-ware, book covers, CD covers, and so on, either for the public or as representation gifts. If a company is interested to pursue these ideas together with her, you are welcome to contact her by email (Chinese or English).

LuS - de nationale vogel van Nederland (national bird of the Neherlands)

(Photo credit: wikipedia)

Tot nu toe hebben we het mandarijnse woord "lus", de naam van onze galerie, altijd vertaald als reiger. Maar zoals zo vaak in mandarijns worden meerdere dieren met hetzelfde woord aangeduid, In dit geval niet alleen reiger, maar ook b.v. ooievaar en lepelaar. En gisteren kwamen we er achter dat de lepelaar (en dus lus) officieel de nationale vogel van Nederland is.... (wikipedia link).

So far we have translated the mandarin word "lus", the name of our gallery, with heron. However, as happens frequently in mandarin, the same word is used for different animals. In this case, not just heron, but also e.g. stork and spoonbill. Just yesterday we found out that the spoonbill (and therefore lus) is officially the national bird of the Netherlands.... (wikipedia link).

Galerie LuS - waarom LuS (why LuS)?


Waarom heet onze galerie LuS? In mandarijns is lus (鹭鸶) het woord voor de Chinese reiger, een vogel die ik vaak heb geschetst in mijn studiejaren. Toen ik bekendheid kreeg in Shanghai met mijn columns in magazines en op internet, noemde ik mezelf Haishang Lus (海上鹭鸶), de reiger boven de zee, waarbij Haishang (海上) een variatie op mijn geboorteplaats Shanghai (上海). En omdat ik me na mijn huwelijk Lu Schaper ben gaan noemen in Nederland, was de afkorting LuS een logische stap.


Fly alone 独自飞翔,Olieverfschilderij

Kunstkenners in Shanghai hebben gezegd dat ik de nieuwste exponent ben van de originele Shanghai kunstbeweging "Haishang" in de 20e eeuw, een mengsel van Oosterse en Westerse stijlen, representatief voor de kolonisatie van Shanghai in the vroege 20e eeuw. De Chinese naam van onze galerie was ook door een prominente artiest  Liu Hai Su 刘海粟 van deze beweging in Chinese calligrafie gecreerd coor mijn vader's galeri in Shanghai in de tachtiger jaren. Chinese wikipedia link hier.


=======================================================================

Why did we name our gallery LuS? In mandarin, lus (鹭鸶) is the word for the Chinese heron, a bird that I have drawn very often in my formative years. When I got to be known in Shanghai for my columns in magazines and on the internet, I called myself Haishang Lus (海上鹭鸶), the heron above the sea, with Haishang (海上) being a variation on Shanghai (上海), the city I was born in. And since I have called myself Lu Schaper in the Netherlands after my marriage, the choice for LuS was a logical one.




One of my early works from the nineties, Listening wind (听风》- We often see this bird in Kampen - is it fate?




Critics in Shanghai have said that I represent the renewal of the original Shanghai art movement "Haishang " 海上画派 of the previous century, a mixture of Eastern and Western styles representing the colonization of Shanghai in the early 20th century. The Chinese name of our gallery was also created by a prominent artist Liu Hai Su 刘海粟 of this movement in Chinese calligraphy for my father's gallery in Shanghai in the 80's. This is the first art gallery in Shanghai after the Cultural Revolution. The gallery is located in the most famous shopping street Avenue Joffre (霞飞路) inside the French concession.









           

          
Dit is een foto uit 1980 van de Shanghai galerie waar mijn vader manager was en ik opgroeide. Ik heb daar veel kunstenaars ontmoet. Deze galerie was in de belangrijkste winkelstraat van het Franse deel van Shanghai. De Chinese naam is dezelfde als onze galerie in Kampen.

海上鹭鸶作品幻灯片演示

海上鹭鸶作品幻灯片演示

My SlideShare

http://www.slideshare.net/luschaper/ss-12525943

海上鹭鸶作品演示 — Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 她的艺术简历好似一段长期的中西艺术 交流历程,充沛而脚踏实地。而她的画 作则像是叠拼的心灵,在明暗交替,混 沌清晰中折射不同女子的生活传奇。一个生活在欧洲的上海艺术家,在绘画和摄影间游走,绘画以上海女子以灵感和载体,作品广泛运用于时尚艺术衍生领域,同时她也用影像记录着自己欧洲生活和在当今中国的所见所悟。
  • 2. “ 海上鹭鸶”,以一种上海女子的态度 阐释生活的艺术家。鹭鸶在上海的出版界、美术界、新闻界乃至网络世界都有很高的知名度,她是羁旅海外幵创作勤奋的年轻女画家,她笔下的图像不断地传回国内,大量出现在国内媒体和网络上。她的名字叫海上鹭鸶。海上鹭鸶的原名叫杨璐,从上海到海外,从南洋到西洋,她的视野因游历而打开,西斱的色彩、东斱的线条,在她作品里结合得分外动人,你可以从她高饱和度的对比色块、挥洒自如的激情笔触中看到梵高、马蒂斯、康定斯基、蒙德里安、蒙克等西斱印象派、野兽派、风格派以及表现主义绘画大师对她的滋养,她从东斱走到西斱,在踏过南洋到欧洲的足迹中,她用中国女性的温婉阐释东斱的美丼。它用斑斓的色彩,淡然的态度延展的生命本真。
  • 3. 童年时代,入选中国福利会上海市少年宫美术组学习,1984年,作品入选上海市少年画展上海美术馆1994年彩墨作品《大海》入选上海海派水彩大展,上海美术馆1995年,受邀赴南洋举办个人画展,从故乡上海来到了新加坡,
  • 4. 1995年彩墨巡回展马来西亚1997年9月《美丽的大自然》油画展,新加坡凯悦酒店,1996年中国画家水墨联展新加坡大会堂1997年新加坡总统府公园联展同年在新加坡受邀为日本水彩颜料品牌 pentel 代言并进行现场示范,同年受邀成为新加坡958城市频道特约嘉宾,主讲艺术与市场的关系,心理夜线等现场直播节目,1998年新加坡23位画家人体画展新加坡美术总会1999年新加坡艺术协会50周年展,2000年救助东帝汶慈善画展,新加坡
  • 5. 南洋时期的作品表达了对故乡四季的留恋,对创作自由的渴望
  • 6. 九十年代末,故乡上海的形象开始慢慢在画中浮现,
  • 7. 从巴厘岛少女到阿姆斯特丹天使,或是锦衣夜行的上海女子,这个时期的她们在各自的轨迹中交叉运行,
  • 8. 行走在欧洲的大城小镇,坐在乡村宁静的溪流边,鹭鸶贪婪地将眼前的美景一一收纳在画布上,用鲜艳的颜色涂抹着狂喜与哀愁——那是一种甜蜜的乡愁。
  • 9. 在欧洲,投射在身上的阳光虽说从地中海移来,足以让海滩上的女人赤裸,但怎么也钻不进画家心灵的一角。她常去蒙帕纳斯墓园会见另一位中国画家,想打听故乡的消息,但她早已熟睡,她就是潘玉良。她在墓潘的墓前供上香烛,还献上一支白玫瑰,犹如展现一个很大的心愿。凭着扎实的中国水墨和西洋油画功底,杨璐在东方题材和西方技巧间执着追寻,找到了一条上海表现主义之路,
  • 10. 她的《迷魂记》:蓝绿红黄的狂乱背景,画中女子站在微妙的平衡点上,仿佛随时都要爆发一种情愫,冷暖色块的激烈交锋呈现的是生命某些时刻的矛盾体验。这些画,与其说是色彩在碰撞,不如说是情感在碰撞,那种写意性、抒情性更接近于诗的意象,是画家用心观照世界后的主观真实。诗人 野萍
  • 11. 她们或站或躺或走,或慵懒或利落,或迷茫或自信,她们不是简单的特定女子肖像,而是一类人、一代人、甚至一个城市的精神画像。她笔下的美女常常不让观众看清面容,但晃动着张爱玲的背影。她笔下的姐妹花有相濡以沫的间隙,却呈现出紧张的空间关系。她笔下的恋人欢聚,营造着唐诗宋词的意境,又酝酿着现代人的反叛与抗争。
  • 12. 上海是鹭鸶身体和灵魂的故乡,也是她永不枯竭的灵感源泉,她一次又一次从自己的画里返乡,她以隐去面目的旗袍女子来表达内心感受,这些女性形象传承自中国现代绘画导师林风眠,却更具上海城市文化的气质。
  • 13. 她的乡愁是彩色的,水墨的,阳光灿烂,也有雾有风,乡愁是鹭鸶创作动力和灵感泉眼,是她开采不尽并时有惊喜发现的矿藏,她用色彩斑斓的画面续写着上海的传奇,旗袍、女人、公寓、街景、顾影自恋的晨起梳妆与逃离歌舞现场的独身夜行……都可看作是一座城市的历史与想象,是对东方文明的解读与修饰。 油画《新庐山恋》
  • 14. 2007年受邀与上海女作家、电台主持人淳子合作《上海老房子里,点点胭脂红》(上海辞书版)一书容纳了历年创作的31幅油画作品,同年在上海文艺出版社《上海壹周》上常年开设图文专栏 08年受邀与 编剧王丽萍 合作散文和 小说《戏• 颜》,《谁 懂我的心》 封面与内页 包含了多副 近年摄影创 作。
  • 15. 个展 2004年 SHANGHAIEXPRESSIONIST油画与水墨作品展法国巴黎 2005年油画水墨展世界500强企业主办荷兰阿姆斯特丹 2006年油画作品展荷兰GaleriAle画廊 2007年受邀在荷兰Flevoland医院举办个人油画展 2010年个人油画作品展法国巴黎 la Butte auxCailles 2011年3月个人油画作品展 荷兰阿姆斯特丹Buitenveldert图书馆部分联展2003年作为"特邀嘉宾画家"9幅油画作品参加法国诺曼底23届画展,法国2006年荷兰艺术家年度联展同时举办中国水墨讲座 荷兰2007年9月欧洲画家联展 德国汉堡2009年9月《近历史——中国当代艺术展》《607080》中国当代艺术家群展》图尔皇家城堡美术馆法国
  • 16. 她追寻着莫奈与凡 高的脚迹,回望大 师的艺术历程,滋 养自己的同时她又 意外发现,中国的 水墨画也能表达欧 洲的风情与人心, 甚至更真实、更深 刻地展现文化上的 精髓,所以有时她 也用纯粹的中国笔 墨与欧洲同行交流, 招来由衷称许。鹭鸶的水墨画把国画中的写意风格发挥到了淋漓尽致的境界。这种大写意差不多除去了人物脸部的多数细节,只留下一个轮廓。同时也保持了她的油画中的用色块象征人物脸部的风格,傅铿
  • 17. 海上鹭鸶的水墨风华亦主亦客,交織的藝術世界綿延無盡,如此之境,又勝於與幻影對舞的李白,該當如是。 卢彦中(台湾)
  • 18. 2010年,应丝巾品牌《上海故事》之邀设计幵创作了“上海之恋”“世博之旅”“上海滩”“倾城之恋”等一系列油画城市风景与人物以及多幅国学题材水墨作品,优雅展现了当代艺术与时尚的结合。
  • 19. shanghaiist 杂志专访
  • 20. 商业与艺术的合作不在少数,艺术家华丽转身成为设计师的有之,将艺术家作品在商品上进行不同呈现的有之,而能将艺术家的风格与品牌精神合二为一的就少之又少。走在上海的繁华街头,或南京路,或淮海路,有这么一个橱窗展现的上海风情会让你驻足,“上海故事”用花样繁芜的丝巾将“有故事的女人”演绎得淋漓尽致。海上 鹭鸶 ,一个 坚持弘扬海派文化与精神内涵的艺术家,用她的细腻的情感和有力的笔触将海上女子的万种风情在画面上呈现。瑰丽多变的色彩,轻柔雅致的质感,无论在丝巾上,还是在画布上,都在用西方的重彩表现东方的情调,正如这条蜿蜒的武康路,述说不尽当年海上的多少浮生若梦。
  • 21. 绘画和影像虽然都是图象,但两者还是差别很大。你的画很本色地表露了一些细腻绵长的情感因素,这是韵味的来源,但比较起来,我觉得你更擅长用摄影表达自己,以至韵味更足。情绪性的东西是很难表达的,它不断在流动,摄影的一些技术手段似乎更适合这种流动感的表达。我觉得,一种缘自“朦胧”“闪烁”的视觉迁想和触动,在你的影调虚实如水墨般晕化的作品中有着非凡的冲击力。 吕品田
  • 22. 每个城市对于出生在那里又离开那里的人,都是日落的时分,遥远的影像间离后,如同身边的夕阳,晕染的温暖包围着,相对而坐的咖啡袅袅上升,不急不徐,看不见地弥漫。只是我们偏偏出生于又离开了上海,所以,习以为常的不经意中,看到鹭鸶的画和照片时,就寻着那种味道,走进了她的咖啡馆。 弄外(在美国的上海人) 回到离开十五年的故乡,近距离感受当今上海,她在故 乡创作和拍摄了一系列混合媒介作品,
  • 23. : 对于阔别多年的故乡,她用镜头追溯着 童年的记忆与熟悉的气息,力图用影像 “拯救”那些在城市飞速建设中每时每 刻在失去的“回忆”, 当这些影像和她镜头下的欧洲幵置在一 起时,形成了奇妙的对比,令人沉醉和 深思。
  • 24. 对于长期生活的欧洲,她以平静和写实的摄取又赋予极其个人化的解读。
  • 25. 一個水墨為底探尋著新線條的畫家、一個油彩為底緊循傳統色調的上海女子、和一個跳脫出作者自身的觀眾。我們開始發現鷺鷥的藝術世界在她的上海風情、在她踏過南洋到歐洲的足跡、在她的生活和她的生活裡,交錯的地方是她的邊際,但這邊際卻在我們的發現中不斷地擴延。
  • 26. 上海故事 在故乡,她让我看一幅油画,外滩的远景,从对岸掷过去的一瞥,江水滔滔的黄昏丢失了落日的余辉,有的是惊惶失措的浪花,打湿了鸥鸟的羽翼,枝型路灯努力在画面上比肩而立,却因为两个情人的闯入而失去平衡, 在离开新加坡的前夕,她画了今天我看到的这幅外滩。她想表达内心激荡,愁绪离别以及深深眷恋,但十年后我发现,那次匆匆拥别留下的絮语,怦然成谶。故乡已与记忆中的温香软玉大异,纷繁杂乱世相,沦陷的道德与冷冻的人情,被她在十多年前摹写一过了。 文/沈嘉禄

Fashion watch: Shanghai story scarves


With the unpredictable weather these days, why not bring up the one fashion accessory that's timeless? Scarves. They don't know the seasons. They don't know the weather. They don't need to - not when they're always 'in'. We caught up with Lu Schaper, a free-lance artist for the famous high end fashion chain Shanghai Story. Since 2010, her art designs have been used to create a series of famous silk and pashmina scarves, including a special series for the Shanghai World Expo 2010.

Can you tell us a little bit about how you got into designing scarves?
I am a professional artist, and was approached by the famous company Shanghai Story, who found me via internet. They proposed that I make designs for them as a free-lance artist. As Shanghai is my home town, and I know the brand pretty well, I decided to embark on this new line of art, also to increase my exposure.


世博之旅 Shanghai world expo
Invited to design ,combined with different venues in the design of the elements, as well as the countries' national flags


Where do you get your inspiration for the patterns?
The first two were inspired by the Expo 2010, the first one has as its theme the HangPu river, with both PuXi and PuDong on it, representing both side of our city. The second one is more abstract, but inspire by the many different buildings at the Expo. After these, series are planned around Shanghai stories and qipao girls, in line with my paintings: delicate, luscious and trendy.


上海之恋系列 Shanghai, This is the city where I was born, This painting of my express the new view of the bund of Shanghai

How does an idea go from inspiration to finished product? Can you explain a bit about your creative process?
As a professional artist I am used to translating my creative impulses into paintings. Designing scarves is somewhat different: I have to pay even more attention to colour schemes and whether it would be suitable for wearing. In addition, there are time schedules to meet for the production. Painting is like playing a solo instrument, designing scarves is more like playing in an orchestra.

                                                                            
                                                                          上海之恋

How would you describe the style of your designs?
The style is very much akin to my painting art, a style which we have named Shanghai Expressionism: expressionistic, usually colourful, but with clear Shanghai themes.
Why choose Shanghai to sell these?
Because it is my home town, and because the company who approached me is from there. The scarves are also for sale in branches of Shanghai Story outside Shanghai. In addition, my style has clear Shanghai elements.


How did you find a collaboration opportunity with the Shanghai Story Fashion Chain?
They approached me after finding my art on the internet.
What do you love most about your job?
This offers me a new page in my career, I always like to try different things. More people can enjoy my art this way, compared to making and selling one painting.



How has the reception to your designs been?
The first designs are selling very well, they are very successful, and the company has decided to use my art as decoration in their shops and office.
What are your future plans for your brand?/How do you hope to expand your line in the future?
Shanghai Story is a clear example of high class products made in China, aiming for trendy women from all over the world. They have a wide of line of products, and it is possible that my designs will find broader applications in this company.

新民周刊—梦里的旗袍飘起来

http://news.sina.com.cn/s/2008-03-05/105115080659.shtml

BY 天 乙
  鹭鹭在上海的出版界、美术界、新闻界乃至网络世界都有很高的知名度,她是羁旅海外并创作勤奋的年轻女画家,她笔下的图像不断地传回国内,大量出现在国内媒体和网络上。她的名字叫海上鹭鸶。她的画面新奇而浪漫,以一个女性化的视角,让读者看到异域风情,更重要的是一颗敏感的心灵。

  鹭鹭的作品始终呈现着“个人”的影子,通过“个人”关于人生的追求,关于“个人”情感的历程,关于“个人”生活的轨迹等等解构,揭示中国传统生活方式和传统文化在当今社会大背景下的存在样式,以及这样的生存样式在时代的、民族的文化冲突中表现出来的挣扎、迷惘、惊恐、踯躅、奔突……

  鹭鹭把中国传统文化或者存在形式符号化,这个符号就是穿旗袍的女人。在鹭鹭的油画作品中,几乎毫无例外地选取隐去面部神情的女人和简洁素雅的旗袍作为图像要素。这些隐去了面部神情的旗袍女人好比一个影子,在她的绘画作品中被赋予一种特定意义的社会存在,象征一种文化,一种存在方式,一种人群。表现出画家对于中国传统文化的深切眷恋和综合的、立体的审视与反省,表现出民族文化在时代精神和现实社会形态下各种矛盾、冲突的思索。不管是社会的各种冲突,还是“个人”生活与情感的遭遇,不管是生命的诱惑还是死亡,她都用这样的符号按照画家内心的图式展现出来,使她的绘画作品保持了典型的风格与个性化的叙述色彩。

  一方面,隐去面部神情的旗袍女人与简捷环境构成的图式,可以看出画家“高级而通俗”的创作理念,在这种图式中,采用大块面颜色和水粉效果的笔法创作图像,依然把社会现实作为创作的参照,隐去的人物面部神情和模糊的环境给人极大的想象空间,可以从中感受人物丰富的表情与环境的情绪性变化。另一方面,鹭鹭的作品应该是很抽象的,带有毕加索式的思考与达利式的表现,使图像离开现实具象抵达内心体验与感知凝结成的“造像”,人物与环境统统都是象征性的,符号性的,况且,图像本身彻底打破了古典的、传统的透视与色彩概念,全部画面关系都按照画家内心的、精神的认知加以表现,人物动态与环境结构及其视觉效果也超越常态,表现得非常主观和非常个性化,画家的创作思想和意图清晰可鉴。但是,鹭鹭的油画作品与当代绘画艺术的纯粹自我表达相背离,色彩和绘画语言符号化,以及符号的形象指征等等都超越了现代派绘画的理念。

  近年来,鹭鹭的创作主题由过去的眷恋、审视与质疑,发展到现在对于民族传统乃至作为文化象征的个人与自然环境、人文环境、社会环境的诠释、解构。在坚持自己的创作风格的基础上,吸取了更多的西方绘画技巧,图形意识显著增强,色彩更加大胆,用笔更加从容,构图开始出现转折,增加了图形的变化和思想容量。

  在中国绘画界呈现多元、多极化的今天,鹭鹭选择离开中国热火朝天的绘画界,远赴欧洲,很少受到某些不良空气的影响,不急不躁,平心静气地画画,没有圈子之争,没有急功近利,没有刻意追赶时尚,长期执著地按照自己艺术创作方向稳定行走,也许是一个明智的选择。-
