慢慢走|何振华作品展

展览介绍

慢慢走
文/吴放
 

    朋友,在告别之前,我采用阿尔卑斯山路上的标语,在中国人告别习用语之下加上三个字奉赠:
    “慢慢走,欣赏啊!”
                                                               ——朱光潜《谈美》
    中国当代著名美学家朱光潜先生在《谈美》一文中这样说道:“‘觉得有趣味’就是欣赏。你是否知道生活,就看你对于许多事物能否欣赏。欣赏也就是‘无所为而为的玩索’。在欣赏时人和神仙一样自由,一样有福。”文章的末尾,朱光潜先生以“慢慢走,欣赏啊!”六个字,赠与那些追求人生艺术化情趣的人们。

    对世间万物保持趣味,并不断寻求、享受这种情趣,的确听来就令人艳羡。作为七零后水墨艺术家的代表之一,何振华就让我看到了在他身上充沛的“情趣”。何振华有着鲜明的个性色彩,区别于单纯追求传统技法的水墨艺术家,何振华的水墨作品更重视画面语言的铺陈和当代语境的嫁接。对于自己、对于艺术、对于生活,他都时刻保持着好奇心与趣味感。在此次展览中亮相的丝本水墨新作“渡江计划”系列和“转山”系列中,何振华继续构建着他的“异化”空间,并以此形成时空的穿梭,以及更为深层的推敲。通过富有中国意蕴的画面元素、建立过去与现在的时空对话,何振华将对于水墨当代性的思考以更为“趣味化”的方式抛出。他将自己对于生活的“欣赏”,延展成“有所为”的探索,并在积累与承载中,逐渐转化为对个人艺术及当代艺术发展的叩问与思考。

    在他的作品中所流露出的“传统”意味,最终都成为他形成个性趣味与艺术本源探索的“关键线索”。何振华正在试图挑拨我们对于现实的怀疑,我们对于当代艺术发展的预设。在何振华的此次个展中,还有一件装置作品。被置于画廊空间顶端的装置“光之乌托邦”,将他构建在绘画中的“异化”空间,“挪”到我们的眼前。何振华以此分享着他的欣赏视野、他的探索轨迹,以及他对艺术最纯粹的好奇。可以说,这件作品是他个人艺术创作的一次新的尝试,也是观众与艺术家作品“交感”的另一个挑战。

    我很好奇,观众在看到何振华的作品时会产生怎样的表情?莞尔一笑?疑惑重重?还是片刻的凝重?那是多么美妙的场景!人们尽情的在何振华的作品中滋养他们的经验、他们的理解,他们最真实的感受。在何振华的“异化”空间之中,更多的人能试着逃脱无趣的囚笼,走进奇幻而又精彩的“新世界”。

    “慢慢走,欣赏啊!”“慢慢走,享受吧!”不要因为车水马龙的世界,变得麻木迟钝。不要因为纷繁错乱的境遇,变得无趣胆怯。希望这样一场展览,这样一位艺术家,以及他所带来的这样一些作品,能让更多人放慢生活的脚步,为他们的生活带来多一些“欣赏”的“情趣”。当然,面对中国当代艺术泡沫化的发展,我们是不是也该有责任慢慢的前行呢?

 

Take it easy
Curator / Wu Fang
 

  My friend, before you say goodbye, I’ll give my word with a Chinese farewell idiom plus a slogan on Alps Mountain.
‘Take it easy, enjoy!’
                                     -Guangqian Zhu “Talk about Beauty”

  The famous Chinese esthetician Guangqian Zhu says:“ ‘feeling interesting’ is to enjoy. Your life is depending on whether you can admire many things or not. And ‘admire’ means ‘the enjoyment doing for nothing’. When people enjoying anything, he has the same freedom with gods, and also is blessed.” At the end of , Mr. Zhu give his word ‘take it easy, enjoy!’ as a gift to people who pursuing artistic life and fun.

  It sounds really enviable that a people who can keep interest on everything in the world and continue to appreciate this fun. As one of the famous ink work artist after seventy, Zhenghua He shows us his ‘fun’. He has a color of distinct personality. Different from other ink work artists who simply pursue traditional techniques, Zhenghua’s artwork laid more emphasis on screen language and the connecting of contemporary context. He always maintains curiosity and sense of fun for art, life and himself. In this exhibition, his new silk ink work painting ‘River Crossing’ series and ‘Worshipping Mountain’ series continue to build his ‘Alienated’ space, and with it, formed a time-space shuttle as well as a deeper thinking. He use the picture full with Chinese element to establish a connection with past. Zhenghua He give us his consideration of contemporary ink work with an‘interesting’ way. He extended his ‘appreciation’ of his life to an exploring of ‘doing something’, and he transformed this exploring into the reflections and inquiries on personal art and the development of contemporary art. The ‘traditional element’ which shows in his artwork has become the ‘vital clues’ of how his personal interest formed. He is trying to provoke us to doubt the reality and our present for the development of contemporary art. In this exhibition, there is also an installation. The device on the top of the gallery is called‘Utopia Light’. It brings his ‘Alienated’ space to our eyes. He is sharing his appreciation vision, track of his exploration as well as his pure curiosity for art. We can say that this installation is a new attempt on his personal art style, and also is another challenge to audience and artists’ “Sympathetic”.

  I wonder that what kind of expression audience will produce when they see Zhenghua He’s works. Would it be‘ smile’? Or‘ confuse’? Yet, it is sure that they will have a nice reflection. What a wonderful sense it would be! In his works, people enjoy their experience, their understanding and their true feelings. In his ‘Alienated’ space,more people try to escape from a cage composed by boring and get into the fantasy and wonderful ‘new world’.

  ‘Take it easy, enjoy!’ Please do not being numb because of the fast-paced life. Please do not being timid because of the disordered conditions. I hope that this exhibition, this artist and with it his artworks will allow more people to slow down the pace of life and bring more ‘enjoyment’ and ‘fun’ to their life. Certainly, facing at the bubble development of Chinese contemporary art, do we have the responsibility to slow it down?
