Venue: Yunnan Arts University Public Lecture Building B201
Lecturer: Roger Wagner
Host: Liu Jing
Organizers: Yunnan Arts University Academy of Fine Arts
TCG Nordica International Culture Center

Roger Wagner
Born in 1957 in London, Roger Wagner won an open scholarship to read English Literature at Lincoln College Oxford in 1975. While a student he attended classes at the Ruskin School of Drawing, where he now teaches, and in 1977 edited The Oxford Art Journal, the forerunner of the present academic journal that began the following year. From 1978 to 1981 he studied at The Royal Academy Schools under Peter Greenham, and subsequently returned to Oxford where he now lives and works. 

In 1985 he had his first exhibition with Anthony Mould who has represented him ever since. Alongside the paintings were wood-engravings from his first book of illustrated poems Fire Sonnets. An exhibition in 1988, In a Strange Land, included a book of that title which included poems and a translation of psalm 137 illustrated with wood-engravings of the London docklands. Several more recent exhibitions have included successive volumes of The Book of Praises: an illustrated translation of the psalms, the first volume of which appeared in 1994. This was the year of his retrospective exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, whose attendance figures broke all records. In 2004 the Ashmolean had a second exhibition of his work to celebrate the acquisition of his large painting Menorah which now hangs on permanent loan in St Giles Church. 

In 2012 he made his first stained glass window, opposite John Piper’s window in St Mary’s Iffley, followed by a font cover made in collaboration with Nicholas Mynheer. Both were nominated for the ACE prize for art in a sacred context. In 2014 he painted the first portrait of the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, which now hangs alongside Thomas Lawrence’s portraits in Auckland Castle. In 2016 Oxford University Press published The Penultimate Curiosity co-authored with Andrew Briggs, the Professor of Nanomaterials at Oxford. 

Wagner’s work has been described as ‘totally unlike any other modern artist’. In 1988 the poet Peter Levi wrote of his second exhibition that ‘Nothing could be less expected than his paintings; they are completely careless of fashion. In some ways they are very old fashioned indeed, but in the most important way modern. He has the power to create a myth.’

An early influence was the painting of Giorgio de Chirico whom he met in Venice in 1973. Chirico described his own style as ‘metaphysical’ and though very different the same term could be applied to Wagner’s work. This has been described as ‘imbued with Fra Angelico, Blake, Palmer and Traherne’, but it also often imbued with what Samuel Johnson described as a characteristic of the metaphysical poets in which ‘the most heterogeneous ideas are yoked by violence together’. Thus Rowan Williams has described Wagner’s ‘fusion of Jewish and Christian symbols with the cooling towers of Didcot power station – Jewish victims of the Shoah wandering in the neighbourhood of a distantly seen, conventionally depicted crucifixion, the background dominated by the immense towers arranged in the pattern of the ceremonial candlestick, the menorah that gives this 1993 painting its title.’, as this is ‘very dense imagining indeed, but it manages a representation of the creatively and theologically uncanny that is haunting’.

Jon Norman – Koncert at TCG Nordica http://en.tcgnordica.com/2019/jon-norman-koncert-at-tcg-nordica/ Thu, 19 Sep 2019 10:00:41 +0000 http://en.tcgnordica.com/?p=8274 23/09 – 19:30
Tickets: 50 RMB – Buy in the door or on TCG Nordica’s WeChat shop.

From left to right: Samuel Neve – drums; Jón Nordmann Óttarsson – vocal, guitar, piano; Magnus Munk Tækker – pedal steel, electric guitar, backing vocal

Jon Norman is a Danish-Icelandic band currently residing in Denmark. They play folk music with catchy singer-songwriter melodies, seasoned with crispy guitar riffs. The lead singer is the islandic singer-songwriter Jón Nordmann Óttarsson whose beautiful, yearning vocal makes a perfect soundtrack for contemplating life or just enjoying life. Listening to them will make you want more. As a songwriter, Jon is wise beyond his years. An old soul, his special and scandinavian take on music mixes his love for classic North American flavoured, road weary travelogues with the longing and passion of Jeff Buckley and the bygone romance of early Tom Waits.

Jon performs the songs with a heartfelt and honest intimacy that swings you around the neighbourhood barroom as well as themes of identity and finding your place in life.

The mindset behind the music is based around the mantra: don’t make music more difficult than it has to be – but find into the deepest substance and core of the song and enhance it with musical emotion and sentiment. This is always in mind, when making the musical arrangements of the songs.

Jon Norðmann Óttarsson:

Jon is the singer, main-songwriter, rhythm guitarist, and occasional pianist of the band. He’s born in Iceland but has mainly grown up in Denmark. Despite of his powerful voice and lyrics, he enjoys wearing his mothers home-knit wool sweaters.

Samuel Neve:

Samuel is the drummer and percussionist in the band and provides beautiful backup-vocals while keeping the band in time. He’s born in Norway and is a long-time friend of Jon.

Magnus Munk Tækker:

Magnus is the swiss-knife of the band – playing all kinds of different instruments. In Kunming, Magnus will be taking on the electric guitar and singing backup-vocals. Magnus is born and grown in Aarhus, Denmark. Once before, he’s been in China on an exchange study-trip which was an amazing experience, so he has only good and exciting things to say about the chinese audience and spirit!
