居藝廊將於五月份推出牙買加藝術家 Nigel Scott 在臺灣首次個展—「Wave is Forever」。Nigel Scott的作品出色而獨特，以攝影的形式跨越了抽象概念與觸覺的質感，並在當中創造了屬於他獨特的視覺張力；他的人像攝影維持著美與身體的可塑性，在畫面中創造了一道溫柔而唯美的距離；而他的城市/海灘攝影，則將人造無機物與環境形成對比，將「人」的存在保留於周遭，卻在畫面之外。
這次在Wave is Forever的個展中，將會展出Nigel Scott 1985年至2003年來不同的商業合作與藝術攝影作品，其中包含與多倫多模特兒Meredith與設計師Serge Girardi的合作、刊登於《浮華世界》雜誌義大利刊的雨傘創意作品、由多倫多服裝設計品牌Comrags設計造型並刊登於多倫多雜誌Mode one的特色攝影、與藝術家Donald Robertson合作的時尚攝影作品、古著Yves Saint Laurent為時尚與攝影藝術節的委託攝影作品等等；大多是早期在多倫多、巴黎、紐約及日本所創作，在當時主要為商業合作客戶所攝製。曾經多次被刊登在不同時尚、藝術與攝影雜誌當中。至今他仍在不斷的在發掘新的想法來創造屬於自己的「圖像」，這樣的想法也長久的影響且啟發自他對於攝影的熱誠，成為了許多作品中十分重要的一部分。
除此之外，在本次的個展中也將展出曾收錄在出版作品《與藍的對話Conversations with Blue》中的藍曬作品，藉由他獨特飽滿的藍色與顯影中的植物姿態展現了脆弱與和諧的瞬間，不僅傳達他對於海洋的熱愛與敬重，同時也呼應著本次的展覽名稱「Wave is Forever」，呈現他對於海洋與自然環境所想表達的訊息：「當海浪停止，星球也將死亡」。
G.Gallery is pleased to present ‘Wave is Forever’, a solo exhibition by Jamaica artist Nigel Scott. Nigel Scott is a master behind the lens. His photography oscillates between the abstract, conceptual and the tactile. The synthesis of these forms creates a unique visual tension while maintaining the beauty and malleability of his subject. His works reveal a tender aesthetic of the human form, the quiet moments in the city and the stillness of the ocean. His photography reconfigures these forms in contrast with the environment, allowing them to go beyond the frame and connect with the viewer.
In this solo exhibition, “Wave is Forever”, Scott will exhibit his art photography work since 1985 until 2003. The show will exhibit portraits of Toronto-based model, Meredith for designer Serge Girardi, visual concepts for Vanity Magazine Italy, editorial for Toronto magazine, Mode One, featuring designs by Toronto’s Comrags, Fashion photography for Yves Saint Laurent commissioned for Festival de la Photo de la Mode exhibition in NYC, Azzedine Alaïa image created for Holt Renfrew and more. Most of the works included in the exhibit are his early works from Toronto, Paris, New York. Apart from his published works, he continues to explore ideas to create personal images that will resonate with a wider audience, aiming to inspire and communicate his love of photography.
This show will also exhibit cyanotype works that were included in his published book, “Conversations with Blue”. In these works, Scott presents captured moments of fragility and harmony through a peculiar satiation with the medium’s hue. These one of a kind images convey his love and respect for the ocean, essentially echoing the name of the exhibition, "Wave is Forever", and its message: When waves stop, the planet dies.
This is Nigel Scott’s debut exhibition in Taiwan at G Gallery.
