新风景 - 洞穴 



“遗忘有一把竖琴,记忆用它弹奏无声的忧伤。 你的童年是小村庄,可是,你走不出它的边际,无论你远行到何方。”  


《新风景 - 洞穴》中有一张的构图,借鉴了旅法的油画家赵无极(Zou Wou Ki)的作品《向克劳德·莫奈致敬》。这张巨幅的作品命名为《无极洞》(Cave) 它是关于洞穴与星空,过去与现在。

New Landscape - Cave

In the story of the Buddha, there is such a metaphor: The whole Sumeru Mountain in a mustard seed. The metaphor tells to put the highest mountain Sumeru into a small seed, it is just fit. And when I created the background, I uses grains of ores. On the scanned pictures, the grains of ore looks likes magnificent and changing nebula and the universe. The scanner allows me to capture the details that are overlooked by the human eye. I am surprised at such a wonderful link between micro and macro world. It is in unison of the Buddha metaphor.

I want to experience such feeling once again. Boasting numerous mountains, my hometown sees our exciting but happy adventures to caves in the hills during the joyful childhood, which is still deeply engraved in my mind till today.

As what Adonis sighed:

“Forgetting has a harp with which memory plays a silent, sad melody. Your childhood is a little village. You can never walk away from it no matter how far you travel.” 

These stones construct a picture of childhood memories of passing through the caves. They look like abstract, for they bring back some colorful memories. While they are also concrete and magnificent, for they can usher the viewers into a mysterious dark void.

The composition of a work in New Landscape: Cave was enlightened by Salute Monet of Zou Wou Ki, an oil painter in France. The large painting is called Wou-Ki Cave, depicting cave, starry sky, past and present.
