Item Description

IconCaretDown

“隐之系列“中运用的motif基本上来自中国古代经典绘画或民间流传的各种吉祥图案,它们或人物、或动物。对表达“隐逸”思想古人有两种画法,一种是用快速的笔法随心所欲画出隐逸之气,即像现在的大写意和泼墨山水;还有一种是用文学中的“借喻”,通过对宏伟山水的描绘加上寥寥几笔对渺小人物的勾勒来展现隐居隐士的生活境界。我的这个“隐之系列”结合了这两种表达方法,同时还受石涛先生“墨受于天,画可从心”的启发。即,让主角”无形而神”地隐起来,这就是力图把无形的永恒的精神和气韵表达出来,这便是我画”隐之系列”的一个愿望。

Most of the motifs for the Latent Enlighten series come from famous traditional Chinese paintings or auspicious images in Chinese folk art, and they are either human figures or animals. The ancient Chinese artists generally had two methods in expressing the concept of “reclusion.” The first one is to paint with rapid and spontaneous brushwork, which is similar to the “Da Xieyi” (sketching ideas) style and the “Pomo landscapes” (“Splash ink”) style; other artists employ the literary concept of metonymy. By depicting a vast landscape and tiny human figures, the artists display the existing state of a recluse. I decided to combine these two methods. Nevertheless, the Latent Enlighten series is also inspired by Shi Tao’s idea that “the ink is given by God, yet we could paint by following our heart.” Thus, the figure of the subject is hidden, but the spirit is shown. To display the formless yet eternal spirit and aura is the reason why I started to paint the Latent Enlighten series.
