丹尼爾.蘇維勒斯.范弗 Daniel Sueiras Fanjul

藝術家丹尼爾一直都喜歡自然界,尤其喜歡動物,是丹尼爾最大的啟發跟樂趣的來源。其實我們不能沒有自然,因為我們也是其中一部分。藝術家認為人類太晚發覺自己也是動物,也太快就忘了這個事實。人類的生活方式與自然界格格不入,使我們認為自己是分開的。因此我用肖像將動物表現出來,有如人類歷史上的偉人一樣。畫了幾個肖像之後發現他們需要搭配老舊巴洛克風個的畫框,所以就去了裱框店。後來,我常去骨董店、骨董市場找框;現在過程反過來了,先找到框之後就知道裡面應該配什麼畫。

丹尼爾是希望自己的作品是有社會意義的。自從當畫家開始後,所有的系列都和存在主義有關,思考人類在自然界的定位,以及人類真正的本質 – 本能與理性的衝突。就柏拉圖所說「人類是同時被兩匹互相拉扯的馬拉著的馬車」,我也總是試著讓觀看者從不習慣的角度去觀看自己。

丹尼爾在創作的時候並不喜歡待在「舒適地帶」,因為我相信藝術的本質是不斷的尋找新的創作、表現方式。這次展出的「物競天擇」系列是我持續最久的系列,自2008年到現在,而之所以持續是因為不斷找得到新的呈現方式。但我已經開始了新的系列創作:「非洲」,與這幾年創作的方式大有不同。藝術這份工作獨特的地方就是不斷的改變,嘗試新的想法,這也是為什麼我決定當藝術家。

About
I have always felt amazed by the natural media, especially animals. Nature is the biggest source of amusement and inspiration we´ve got. Actually nature is all we have got for we are nature indeed and therefore everything we do.

I do believe we humans learned too late that we too were animals, but what is worse it that we have forgotten too soon. I think our species live somehow alienated from the natural world and think of ourselves apart from the rest of animals. That is one of the reasons why I do represent animals in the way we would represent some of the most distinguished characters of our species through history.

All series I have worked on since I first started as a visual artist deal with the same recurrent matters: a sort of existentialism which wonders about the place of mankind in nature and about the true nature of man, always confronting its rationalism with its basic instincts; in words of philosopher Plato: man is a carriage driven by two horses heading in different directions.

I always try to represent things in a way we can perceive mankind with such a perspective we look at ourselves different of how we are used to.

I do not like to be in a comfort zone while working because I believe the true nature of art is to find new ways of representation and creation. The Selection Natural series I present at this exhibit is the longest I have worked on, I started it on year 2008 and the reason I keep on working on it is because I always find new ways of representing ideas suitable for this series. But I have already started a new series of works under the name of África, which means a big change in the way I´ve been working in the last years. To feel that I am constantly changing and open to new ideas is to me the real and most important reason why I work on art, also what makes it different from so many other jobs.
