Inner Scenery: Vay Hy, Sun Jing, Mo Di  Ink Wash on Paper

Three artists from different generations all use ink, on different paper. Vay Hy, born in the 1960s, grew up in the UK with a western academic education. Yet his family has always kept the Chinese traditions at home. His works are mainly abstract ink wash on card paper or watercolour paper. Sun Jing, born in the 1970s, appreciates Tao’s spirit. Her works are collaged ink paintings on rice paper. Mo Di, born in the 1980s, uses ink wash to record her flashes of thoughts with typewriter printings, to express her own emotions. Their works seem to be far apart at first sight, but are actually all description of their inner scenery. The “scenery” in their works is not reflection of the reality, but their feelings.

Vay hy thinks that “Abstract objects have their own vitality and attraction. It is the wonderful connection between the work and the audience makes the meaning and life of a good art piece ”. His works are full of uncertainties, he tries to redefine the media of ink and water by partially control them. Vay Hy, born in 1966 in Vietnam, originally from Guangxi Province. Now he lives and works in London.

Sun Jing’s works feature random and spontaneous collage of ink wash painted rice paper materials. The main elements in her works are ink wash and tea stains, plus layers of painted rice paper mounted on various kinds of rice paper and wind dried silk. Following Tao’s spirits, she uses whatever half-made-painting parts at hand and creates works according to present moment. Her works stray between abstract and concrete images. The hills, stones and flowers are present and absent at the same time. Sun Jing was born in Haining, Zhejiang, in 1979. She now works and lives in Shanghai.

Mo Di: “Ink wash is pure, natural and fluid, it makes possible to present flashes of sudden thoughts and feelings on paper. My works stem out of the need for brightness, however it can only be reached by passing through darkness. As fear disappeared when I turned back , darkness is left behind and bright light is welcomed.” Mo Di was born in Guangzhou, Guangdong, in 1987. She now lives and works in Guangzhou.

 

内心的风景 — 许国慧、孙晶、莫頔 水墨纸本展

三位不同年代的艺术家作品都用到了水墨,但又各自采用了不同的形式。出生于60年代的许国慧在英国成长,接受西方学院教育,家中却一直保留中国的传统。他作品主要为抽象水墨作于卡纸或水彩纸上;出生于70年代的孙晶非常欣赏道家思想,其作品为宣纸水墨,并参和很多拼贴的形式;而生于80年代的莫頔则运用水墨快速记录自己一闪而过的念头,她在水墨创作中加入手工打印元素,更多的是自我情绪的表达。他们的作品初看风格迥异,实则都在描绘自己内心的风景。他们笔下的“风景”并非对现实的反映,而是对心情感受的抒发。

许国慧认为“抽象的事物本身具备一种生命力和吸引力,一个好的艺术品它的生命力和意义一部分更是来自作品和观众之间美妙的内心联系和沟通”。他的作品充满偶然,通过对水和墨的合理掌控和适当利用来追求对于这个媒介在抽象平面中的重新定义。许国慧,1966年生于越南,祖籍广西,现工作生活于伦敦。
孙晶的作品以随性及即兴的茶墨纸本拼贴为特点。画面中的层层叠加,是以水墨和茶渍为主色加以混合绘画颜料,在不同的宣纸、绢上用传统浆糊进行一层层的裱贴。孙晶在创作手法上的随手捏来,一时兴起都追随着道家思想。作品中的画面游离于具象和抽象之间,混沌初开,一山一石一花一物,若有似无,似是而非。孙晶,1979年生于浙江海宁,现工作生活于上海。

莫頔:“水墨的单纯、自然、流变、互渗等特质使其更容易展现那短暂时刻所想表达的心思。我的作品是处于趋向光明的需要,但必先经过黑暗。当年此时的恐惧、害怕,随着头也不回的转身而去,将黑夜置于身后,光明则从前方迎来。”莫頔,1987年生于广州,现工作生活于广州。
