Yulia Brodskaya将通过她的新书《纸艺绘画:纸的无限可能性》,与读者们分享她在卷纬工艺(quilling)、绘画和纸艺方面的心得体会。

I’m excited to present my new book Painting with Paper: Paper on the Edge and share everything I’ve learned (and, of course, continue learning) about quilling and paper art.

《纸艺绘画:纸的无限可能性》并不是一本关于具体项目的图书,相反,它向读者们讲述了一系列实用的绘画技巧。从这本书里,读者们不仅可以看到Yulia Brodskaya是如何通过自己的绘画方式来表达自己的想法的,更可以从中总结出一些经验并将其运用在自己的实际创作上。十年前,Yulia Brodskaya开始通过纸条和卡片来进行一种创新型的绘画创作(简而言之,就是将一系列弯曲的小纸条和卡片组合成3D的“笔刷”,再利用这些“笔刷”来进行绘画);十年后的今天,这种绘画形式已经成为世界艺术上浓墨淡彩的一笔。本书涵盖了这十年中Yulia Brodskaya所产出的作品,向读者展示了她的创作历程。

This is not a project-based book, but instead an insight into my creative process with practical tips on how to work with my methods in various ways of your own. The book covers my 10-year journey starting from the time I came up with a new way of working with strips of paper and card, shows an evolution of the techniques and inspirations that I use in my practice and culminates with the method of Painting with Paper strips which I consider my main contribution into the world of art made with paper (in short, it is an imitation of brushstrokes with 3D packs of tightly bent strips of paper).

本书中并没有画作的分步详解,看似对新手毫无帮助,但其实不然,因为YouTube上有很多博主分享的新手教程,只要想学,入门其实很容易。Yulia Brodskaya希望通过分享自己的心得体会和建议来激励读者们进行一系列自由的、具有创新性的创作,毕竟这才是艺术创作的主要原因和终极目的:感受用自己的双手创造美好事物的乐趣;而当人们受到触动,并以这种触动为灵感创作出一些东西的时候,创作所带来的的愉悦感便会成倍地增加。这也就是为什么不要将自己局限在别人所规定的的条条框框里、而是要以自身的想法为行事准则的原因。只有当一个人拥有足够的勇气做出自己的决定(哪怕这个决定是错误的)的时候,他才拥有了真正的、发自内心的独特创造力。有一点要时刻铭记:最终的艺术创作是一个人自己的独特表达,而不是别人的想法的复制品。

▼“看见”人物肖像,the portrait – Seeing

Since there are no step-by-step projects in this book, it may seem that it won’t be helpful for paper craft novices; however, it is not exactly the case. There are thousands of tutorials already created by other authors, papercraft bloggers and YouTube lesson creators available for anyone who needs some help to get started. What I’m trying to encourage through sharing my experience and advice, is finding a creative freedom – in the end of the day that’s the main reason why we make something: to feel the joy of creating something beautiful with your own hands; this feeling of joy is many times stronger when you create art inspired by something that moves you deeply. That’s why it is important not to get stuck and develop a habit of needing somebody else to outline and plan every creative decision for you. The real unique creativity comes from inside when you find the courage and learn to make your own decisions (and, sometimes, mistakes), but ultimately create the art that is a unique expression of yourself rather than a replica of somebody else’s vision.

在卷纬工艺和纸艺创作中,最重要的一点就是享受过程;无论是第一幅草图,还是第一百幅画作,在本质上都是一样的。只要累积了足够的实践和经验,任何人都会自然而然地创作出那些具有创造性的作品,因此不必急于求成。Yulia Brodskaya在本书中所讲述的技巧和实践经验都有助于练习者最大程度地领悟和掌握他们当下的知识。如果您尝试过纸艺创作并能体会到其中的乐趣,那么这就是适合您的艺术创作形式,不要犹豫继续练习下去吧。

The absolute key thing in Quilling and paper art is simply enjoying the process; it is the same whether you’ve just started your 1st paper artwork or already on your 100th one. With practice and experience the creative outcome will sort out itself, there is no point in rushing and looking ahead till some future point when the work is completed; the techniques and practices I describe in the book can help you to stay in the present moment. If you tried working with paper and found the process joyful, then you know this is the right art form for you; the rest is just to keep practising.

《纸艺绘画:纸的无限可能性》这本书深入地剖析了Yulia Brodskaya的创作过程和方式,以及Yulia Brodskaya是如何做出每一个创造性的决定的。另外,本书中还有许多其他跨学科的知识,如:如何选择和使用颜色、测试构图的重要性、创作要从绘画对象的哪一部分开始、以及什么时候才能说一幅作品已经彻底完成了,等等。不仅是喜欢纸艺创作的人,对于那些对艺术有兴趣的人来说,本书都是一个不可多得的选择。

The book is an insight into the way I work, the creative decisions I make every step of the way; there is plenty of practical tips too. Also, many of the things I write about are inter-disciplinary: for instance, learn how to work with colours, the importance of testing compositions, which part of the image to start with, and when to consider it complete – these advices might be interesting for anyone who enjoys art in general and not just paper craft.

本文中所展示的这些大型纸质人物肖像都是Yulia Brodskaya通过纸艺绘画创作而成的,其中最大的一幅肖像的尺寸可达到1×1.5米。同时它们也表达了Yulia Brodskaya在创作主题的选择上的新动力:仅仅创作一朵美丽的花、一个漂亮的贝壳或是一个装饰性的波浪是远远不够的,艺术品需要人类的存在来加深视觉体验,从而激起一系列感受和情绪上的波动。因此Yulia Brodskaya决定将自然图案与人脸肖像结合在一起。当然,这可能只是Yulia Brodskaya在自身艺术发展上的一次尝试,毕竟对她来说,遵循自己的内心以进行创作是最为重要的。Yulia Brodskaya希望这本书可以让人们倾听内心真实的想法,并以此为基础来创造,这样他们才能真正感受到纸这种材料的魅力,才能真正欣赏到这些通过纸艺创造而成的艺术品的美。

The artworks I’m showing here (in the folder) are my ongoing experiments with Painting with Paper methods focusing on exploring large scale paper portraits (up to 1×1.5m). They also show my newly felt urge in choosing subject matter: it feels that depicting just a beautiful flower, a pretty shell or a decorative wave on its own is simply ‘not enough’… A human presence is needed to deepen the visual experience, the feel&emotional charge coming from the artwork, so I end up combining the natural motifs with human faces. It might be just another step in my art evolution – I always try to follow my inner creative voice and find the inspiration there; and I hope that my book will encourage people to do the same, so that we can see and discover truly unique one-of-a-kind creations made with this wonderfully versatile material – paper.
