世界艺术大师的集散地

With an unrivalled history of developing and promoting both iconic and ground breaking artists the world over, the Halcyon Gallery always has inspiration at its heart. By Ada Crawshay-Jones

Halcyon Gallery was established in 1982 as a platform for inspirational art. The gallery is now based on New Bond Street, Mayfair and represents a selection of renowned international artists. Together Halcyon Gallery’s three London spaces and Shanghai space host a diverse programme of contemporary art, showing both established artists and new, emerging talent.

翡翠画廊成立于1982年,是一个展出灵感艺术作品的平台。画廊位于伦敦梅菲尔区的新邦德街上,汇集了精选的国际著名艺术家的作品。翡翠画廊位于伦敦的三家展馆与上海的展馆一道举办了多种多样的现代艺术展览,作品的出处涵盖了已成名的艺术家和新兴艺术人才。

From its inception, Halcyon Gallery has championed painters and sculptors who display exceptional talent, technical skill and intrinsic creativity. Among its British artists are hyper-realist painter Mitch Griffiths, whose canvases touch on themes of nationhood, iconography, ‘cult beauty’ and celebrity culture, and Russell Young whose larger-than-life silkscreen paintings are appropriated from recent history and popular culture. Sculptors include Russian artist Dashi Namdakov, Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn and American artist Dale Chihuly who has mastered the alluring, translucent and transparent qualities of ice, water, glass and neon and is globally renowned for his ambitious site-specific architectural installations in public spaces, and in exhibitions presented in museums and gardens worldwide.Furthermore international artists include Indian painter and sculptor Jagannath Panda and Colombian artist Santiago Montoya,Spanish artists such as Ernesto Cánovas and Pedro Paricio,legendary Bob Dylan and the late Eve Arnold.

从一开始,翡翠画廊就一直支持那些天赋异禀、有着高超技巧和创造力的画家和雕塑家。这其中的英国艺术家有超写实主义画家Mitch Griffiths,他的油画主题涵盖了民族、肖像、崇拜美学和名流文化; 还有Russell Young,他那有着传奇色彩的丝网印刷画的题材来自近代史和流行文化;雕塑家包括俄罗斯的艺术大师Dashi Namdakov 、意大利的艺术家Lorenzo Quinn和美国艺术家Dale Chihuly。 其中Dale Chihuly掌握了冰、水、玻璃和霓虹灯所呈现的透明或半透明质地,为特定的公共空间、世界各地的博物馆和花园量身定制了一系列的建筑装置艺术,并因此享誉全球。

Arranging commissions across its global client base of art collectors, Halcyon Gallery plays a leading role in placing public art – a passion of founding director Paul Green – in high-profile locations in cities around the world. Among these, Wu Ching Ju’s Pro Terra et Natura was commissioned as a major public monument in Shanghai, China and Dale Chihuly’s The Sun was installed at Berkeley Square in central London in 2014 whilst Lorenzo Quinn returned to Park Lane to unveil Would You Catch Me If I Fall? in 2015.

Halcyon Gallery的创始人保罗×格林对公共艺术抱有极大的热情。因此,该画廊开风气之先,努力将公共艺术置于世界各大都市的高端场所。这其中包括:吴静茹的“回翔绿洲”,成为了中国上海最主要的公共雕塑之一;伦敦市中心在Berkeley Square 的“太阳”(The Sun),由Dale Chihuly创作,建立于2014年;还有在2015年, Lorenzo Quinn在伦敦Park Lane揭幕的Would You Catch Me If I Fall? (“如果我摔倒,你会接住我吗?”)。

Philanthropy is an important facet of Halcyon Gallery. The installation of Simon Gudgeon’s elegant Goddess of Nature sculpture in 2008 on the banks of The Serpentine in Hyde Park, London, has raised nearly £3 million for The Royal Parks Foundation’s Education Centre. Three years earlier, the gallery donated Lorenzo Quinn’s sculpture The Tree of Life to the city of Birmingham to commemorate those who died in the Second World War blitz on the city. As part of its assertion of the life-enhancing quality of art, the organisation supports various charities, including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award World Fellowship, a scheme that helps young people throughout the globe in health, education and welfare.

慈善事业是翡翠画廊很重要的一部分。2008年, Simon Gudgeon的雕塑作品自然女神(Goddess of Nature)在伦敦海德公园湖边建立。这个雕塑的建立为英国皇家公园基金会的教育中心筹集了300万英镑。三年之前,翡翠画廊向伯明翰捐赠了Lorenzo Quinn的生命之树(The Tree of Life),来纪念在该城市二战期间德国空袭中死去的人。翡翠画廊主张以艺术改变生活质量,因此赞助了多个公益项目,包括致力于在健康、教育和福利方面帮助全世界年轻人的爱丁堡公爵奖学金。

Over a quarter century since its formation, Halcyon Gallery’s present-day reputation is for excellence and integrity. It has become a world-class destination for art collectors who are drawn not only to the inspirational artists – the ‘modern masters’ the gallery represents, but also to the commitment and passion of the organisation’s entire team.

建立34年至今,翡翠画廊的名字等同于艺术界的杰出与正直。它称为了艺术收藏者们的顶级去处。他们不止被画廊所代表的那些现代艺术大师们的作品所吸引,更被整个公司的团队所呈现的热情所感染。
