2017届马佳琪毕业绘画作品《北京》在维思东亚研究学院展出

9月20日周三,维思大学东亚研究学院的佛里曼画廊将开设新的展览,展出2017届马佳琪(Jiaqi Maria Ma)的绘画作品。

“我的绘画过程很像城市的发展过程,”马佳琪说,“一层层的颜色和线条,不断抹去之前的构图,在原本的基础上改变和生长。我生在北京,长在北京,和北京离得太近,直到漂洋过海来到万里之外,不再一起度过早中晚的每一天,才真正清楚地意识到这座城市发展和改变的速度有多么快。”

“我的毕业展览(BEIJING | 北京)包括了基于我在北京的经历的五幅系列画作。我不甘于让某些回忆永远被重写,于是在画布上建起了自己感受里的北京。”


Maria Ma ’17 Senior Thesis Paintings of Beijing at Wesleyan’s College of East Asian Studies

On Wednesday, September 20, the Freeman Gallery at Wesleyan University’s College of East Asian Studies will open a new exhibition, featuring paintings by Maria Ma ’17.

“My painting process is similar to the never-ending development of a city,” says Maria. “Buildings and passages are created and erased, changed and layered, compositions and neighborhoods shift and mature. Similarly, my feelings and memories of my hometown, Beijing, have evolved as I distance myself geographically and chronologically.”

“My thesis exhibition: ( BEIJING | 北京 ) consisted of a series of five paintings based on my experiences of Beijing. I feel as though I made my memories real by building my own city through the process of painting.”
