DIKE BLAIR by Dike Blair [SALE]

ニューヨークを拠点に活動するアメリカ人アーティスト、ダイク・ブレア(Dike Blair)の作品集。過去2年間の油彩画をまとめた一冊。ドアの鍵、灰皿、プール、ホットドッグ、タバコの箱、ダンキンドーナツのコーヒーカップ、さまざまな飲み物やカクテル、花束、窓や照明器具などを描いた静物画は、丹念に描かれているだけではなく、しばしば斜めからのアングルで、観る者の視線をメインの被写体にもその向こう側にも向けるよう描かれている。

彼が描くすべてのシーン - 空港の待合室、バー、夜の屋外植物に当てられた強い白熱灯、飛行機の窓から見える青空、ベッドからの景色を縁取って梢をちらりと見せるだけの窓の継ぎ目、天井の裸電球... このモチーフは一般的だ。斬新かどうかではない、親しみやすさが問われている。」- ヘレン・モールスワース(Helen Molesworth / キュレーター)


This new book brings together oil paintings from the past two years by New York-based artist Dike Blair. Blair's still lifes of door locks, ashtrays, swimming pools, hot dogs, cigarette packets, Dunkin' Donuts coffee cups and a variety of drinks and cocktails, floral bouquets, windows and light fixtures depict their subjects in painstaking fashion, but also at an often oblique angle, so that the viewer's gaze is directed both at and beyond the ostensible subject. As Helen Molesworth writes: "Every scene he paints--the waiting areas of airports, bars, the too-harsh incandescent light on the outdoor plants at night, the blue sky out of a plane window, the seams of windows that frame the view from the bed and leave us just a glimpse of the treetops, the bare fluorescent bulbs on the ceiling--is generic ... novelty is not what is at stake; familiarity is."
