Rhapsody II is one of the creations by Singaporean artist Allen Tang during the 2010s. He fuses Western modern abstract art and the spirit of traditional Chinese calligraphy and seal engraving to form his own unique style, full of Singapore regional characteristics. In his teenage years, he developed a solid foundation in realistic oil painting and watercolor, having mastery in the use of colors. Through relentless self-breakthroughs and experimentation with materials, his artistic career reached a golden peak in the 2010s. He chooses to paint with palette knives on acrylic boards, utilizing the material’s hardness and impermeability to draw explosive lines and textures on very thin, flat paint, giving the image a deep-spatial perspective and expressing complex yet direct emotions in an abstract way.

This kind of technique is full of power, with fast and precise strokes without hesitation, showing the strong contrast between the passionate red and yellow colors on the black background. The palette knife does subtraction to the ready-laid-flat paint on the acrylic board under different strengths, exposing various shades of undertones to show changes in light and relief-like three-dimensional textures that bring a striking visual impact. The title, Rhapsody II, also alludes to the great amount of emotion involved in the creation of the work. Everyone can have their own interpretation under different emotions, just like this genre of music, full of freedom and imagination. What we only need to do to appreciate the work is to feel the energy and impulses that erupt in the painting with all our hearts to experience the charm of abstract paintings.

《狂想曲II》是新加坡当代艺术家邓国富10年代的创作之一。他融合了西方现代抽象艺术与中国书法篆刻的神韵,形成自己独具新加坡地域特色的风格。青少年时,他打下了坚实的油画、水彩功底,对色彩运用娴熟。通过不断的自我突破和对材质的尝试,他的创作在10年代达到了黄金巅峰期。他选择在亚克力板上用刮刀作画,利用该材质坚硬且不易渗透的特性,在平铺的颜料上勾勒出极具爆发张力的线条和纹理,赋予画面深邃的空间透视效果,用抽象的手法表达复杂又直接的情感。

此种技法力量感十足,笔触快准狠,没有丝毫犹豫,表现出热烈的红色和黄色在黑色背景上的强烈对比。刮刀在不同力度下为画面做着减法,露出深浅不一的底色,呈现出光线的变化和浮雕般立体的质感,带来强烈的视觉冲击。作品名《狂想曲II》也暗指了创作时大量的情感投入,每个人在不同的情绪下都有自己的解读,就如同这种充满自由和幻想的音乐,我们只需全身心感知画中爆发的能量和冲力即可体验抽象画的魅力。
