Cave

新风景 - 洞穴

在佛家故事里,有这样一个比喻:芥子须弥,它是说把一座巨大的须弥山塞入一粒菜籽里,刚刚合适。而当我在创作背景层的时候,一粒粒细小的矿石仿佛形成了气象万千的星云,宇宙。扫描仪让我能捕捉到人眼所忽略的众多细节。我惊讶于这样一种微观与宏观间的奇妙联系。正如佛家的这则比喻。

我想延续这种感受,自己的家乡是一座山城,儿时经常跟小伙伴们一起探索山里的溶洞成了我们儿时闲暇快乐时光里颇为刺激的冒险。时至今日,童年时光的洞穴之旅仍然让我历历在目。就像阿多尼斯所说的:
“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.”

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.
