“笪重光畫論思想中最為閃光的便是‘無畫處皆成妙境’……當代視角如何切入傳統題材,讓傳統題材重新煥發生機,也許就是時代賦予何微這代藝術家的責任,何微的起步邁得很好,以後的道路還很漫長,我們拭目以待。”
——方向評何微

“In the idea of Da Chonguang’s theory of painting, the brightest part is ‘empty space always becomes wonderland’……How to apply a contemporary view to traditional themes and revitalize the traditional theme may be the responsibility endowed by times to artists like He Wei. He Wei has a good start and he has a long way to go. Let’s wait and see. ”
——Fang Xiang

一畫廊即將舉行“清音鑄雲山”-何微水墨作品展。屆時將展出約30張精美的水墨作品。

何微出生於湖南衡陽,家離著名的五岳衡山不遠,他的作品因此總帶着故鄉山脈的影子。憑藉中國畫的水墨與內斂的用色,何微動情地描繪舒捲的霧靄與濃雲繚繞的羣山——映射着他的故鄉。觀賞他的作品使人平靜:大片留白代表着高渺的雲層,熟練的筆觸勾畫出山脈間陡崖峭壁。何微採用不同的繪畫視角,彷彿自己是穿越羣峯俯瞰的飛鳥。對山峯之壯美的敬畏與慨嘆躍然紙上。他常在畫中加上小建築物與行人,既增添了色彩,也給予觀者雙眼焦點。比如一座寺廟的屋頂,或是一條山間小徑,豐富了構圖與趣味。

何微接受的是嚴格的傳統中國畫訓練,臨摹著名清朝畫家石濤的作品幾可亂真。而此次展覽所展出作品則極具其自我風格。輕柔的灰色調給予他的作品淡雅與當代感,不爲傳統所拘束。

何微1989年出生,2013年本科畢業於中國人民大學藝術學院中國書畫專業,獲文學學士學位。2016年起於中國藝術研究院就讀,攻讀碩士學位,師從著名藝術家方向

何微將出席畫展開幕,畫展亦將發行畫冊。

Yan Gallery is excited to announce its forthcoming exhibition, entitled ‘The Magic Mountain’, a collection of around 30 delicate ink paintings by the Chinese artist He Wei.

He Wei was born in Hengyang, Hunan Province. His home is very near the famous Hengshan Mountain and this collection of works is deeply influenced by this association. In Chinese ink, and sparing use of colour, He Wei evocatively conveys the swirling mist and cloud enshrined mountains that represent the artist’s hometown. His works are soothing to look at – great expanses of white represent the lofty clouds, while his expressive brushwork adeptly captures the jagged crags and yawning precipices of this spectacular mountain range. He Wei depicts the scenes from different angles, as if he were a bird flying amidst the mountain peaks. A feeling of awe and wonder at the beauty and magnitude of these mountains is perfectly conveyed in his paintings. He often adds small buildings or people to his works, adding a splash of colour, to give the eye a focal point. A temple roof or a mountain path adds interest and complexity to his compositions.

He Wei has received rigorous training in traditional Chinese painting. While copying the works of the famous Qing Dynasty artist Shi Tao, his works were so exceptional that they were indistinguishable from the great Master’s. However, this collection of paintings is very much his own work and distinctive in style. The gentle greyish tones of the ink give his works a very light, contemporary feel and they are not remotely burdened by tradition.

He Wei was born in 1989. He graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Arts School of Renmin University of China, Beijing, majoring in Chinese Painting and Calligraphy. In 2016 he was admitted to the Chinese National Academy of Arts for a Master’s Degree. He is currently at the Youth Branch of the Li Keran Painting and Calligraphy Academy and is also assistant to his mentor, Fang Xiang, at the Fang Xiang Art Studio of the Peking University School of Arts.
