費迪 · 迪克(Ferdi B Dick)一位廣受歡迎的動畫師,曾與許多大品牌合作,同時是一位自學成才的製作人。於2000年在斯泰倫博斯大學獲得圖形和插圖榮譽學位並於南非開普敦工作與創作。曾參加了國內外多次群展和藝術博覽會,包括南非開普敦及弗朗斯胡克和美國紐約。

Ferdi B Dick, a sought-after animator who has produced work for multiple major brands, Ferdi is also a self-taught maker who enjoys working with his hands. He obtained an honours degree in graphics and illustration from the University of Stellenbosch in 2000. Lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. He has participated in several group exhibitions and art fairs both nationally and internationally, including Cape Town, Franschhoek in South Africa and New York.

爾後,從最初的3D動畫師工作,逐漸跨足製作當代雕塑。其創作的主體性由作品的數位虛擬和現實有形之間的交疊中呈現出色的結果,觀眾可以在具有誇張形象的3D動物之中,明顯發現卡通和動畫的特徵。

Ferdi B. Dick started off as a 3D animator and subsequently moved towards physical crafted sculptures. The result is a body of work that plays superbly in the overlap between digital and tangible, portraying three-dimensional creatures with exaggerated features directly influenced by cartoons and animations.

事實上,費迪的雕塑並非致敬大眾文化,而是喚起每個人心中反烏托邦的世界。儘管他的角色可能看起來詼諧有趣,但這些3D動物因失去的童年純真和成年的負擔而沉思。他的雕塑系列《我不相信獨角獸》描繪了情緒低落的瞬間,刻劃超普普風格的獨角獸和熊,眼淚變成了支撐它們的巨大支柱。

Rather than a celebration of mass culture, Ferdi’s sculptures evoke a dystopian world. While his characters might appear playful, they are wistful musings on lost innocence and the burdens of adulthood. His sculpture series I Don’t Believe in Unicorns depicts ultra-pop unicorns and bears in moments of emotional distress, whose tears have become giant crutches propping them up.

從他的作品當中可以反復發現早期動畫作品創作的線索,費迪尤其喜愛使用拋光銅的技法描繪角色,因此具強烈特色的流動性和熔融形式的主題使這位南非藝術家創造的所有角色格外的具強烈個人色彩。所有展出作品皆以數位模型開始,通過3D列印找到合適的材料形式,最後以銅鑄造。

A recurring theme of fluidity and molten forms unifies his characters, a direct influence from his animation work that is heightened by his use of polished bronze. They start out as digital models, find material form via 3D printing, and finally are cast in bronze.
