德羅‧若思渴

德羅‧若思渴的美學著重於即興的創作、姿態抽象、克制(束縛)、缺陷(不完美)中展現出寧靜與美,其表現透由自然流動的顏料、筆觸以及無法預期的色彩使用與肌理質感。他的創作融合了日本畫技法,使用天然礦物顏料、金箔、銀箔等與當地素材層層堆疊,以獨特的質感,創造出感動人心的意象。他提到希望能透由多層次堆疊的作品,喚起人們意識生命中破碎、依賴與豐足的同時能夠深層的探索愛與我們真實的身分。

德羅‧若思渴1963年出生於夏威夷-胡歐島,1985年畢業於羅耀拉瑪麗蒙特大學藝術學系,獲得學士學位,德羅畢業後曾擔任美國許多重要品牌的設計師。一直以來德羅愛好植物相關的題材,他曾榮獲許多水彩、插畫以及數位藝術等獎項及殊榮,直至2007年德羅開始發覺與學習日本畫技法,深深為此著迷,他數次造訪日本學習,融合他在植物創作上的專長以及複合媒材,他希望投由他的創作帶給人們盼望。德羅‧若思渴現生活與創作於夏威夷。
