这一切

October 17, 2018 - Lilly Wei - 艺术中国

此次画展的标题“这一切(All This)”意指展出画作的复杂性、差异性和独特性。它还包涵了另一层意义,那就是塑造这些作品的背景超越了东西方二元论——这种二元论早已变得过于简单和局限,除了用于最广泛的分类,不再具有参考价值。当然,中国艺术家与全世界的艺术家甚至人们一样,拥有自己独一无二的故事,这些故事反过来塑造他们的作品。你住在哪里、被谁抚养长大、在何处与什么人一同求学、受到哪些艺术家的影响、读过的书、听过的音乐、看过的电影、获得的资源、你的喜怒哀乐——简言之,你境遇、经历、想象的总和,你到目前为止的全部生活,都体现在你的作品当中。

Going Outside at NanHai Art: The Solitary Landscapes of He Kunlin and Tong Yi Xin

October 2, 2018 - Christopher Frank Blackmore - Art Practical

Going Outside is at its most compelling when the Chinese philosophical and aesthetic concepts are discreetly embedded within contemporary images and technologies, challenging expectations of witnessing cultural otherness and intimating instead the possibility of a more dynamic realization of digital technology’s putative claims to cultural universalism. In doing so, both artists anticipate a future that seems more likely than most: one in which humanity exists as a variegated crossroads of other histories and ways of being, in discordance and in concert.

《潇湘·渔隐》策展文章

October 1, 2018 - Betti-Sue Hertz - 新浪收藏

近年来,中国艺术家对传统的“文人墨客”以及艺术家学者的概念兴趣倍增。何昆霖(Kunlin He)和童义欣(Yi Xin Tong)这两位长居美国的中国艺术家和国内外许多年轻艺术家一样,为宋、元、明时期文人画家的文化地位与实践所着迷。被视为道德和艺术上的精英群体的文人画家们受过良好教育,他们追求儒家理想,政府官吏也不例外。他们弃用北方宫廷画师的精湛技巧与华丽风格,追求感性与自我表达,中国艺术史上诸多备受尊崇的作品均有这一特性。山水画作为一个独立的体裁,在中国艺术中的历史渊源可追溯至唐朝的分裂瓦解。它蕴含着对人类之不完美的隐喻,也正是这种传统让两位旅居国外的艺术家何昆霖和童义欣从隐逸于自然以表达对移居现实不满的行径中找到灵感。他们怀抱着退隐田园的情志,同时也渴望置身当今连接紧密的全球文化——社交媒体和数字通信等本土媒体形式就不乏有不祥的生态灾难和研究旅行的新闻报道。尽管何昆霖和童义欣不是正式的合作画家,但他们相通的混合拼贴美学揭示了他们的调查主体性,这无疑汲取了中国童年记忆的滋养,同时又受到了美国熔炉式文化潜移默化的熏陶。

張大千在加州的又一段詩書畫緣

March 6, 2018 - 桂高華

張大千先生一生四海為家、交遊廣闊,所到之處必結交名流同道,留下許多佳話。自上世紀60年代中期頻繁造訪加州,1971年購置「環蓽庵」正式移居,直至1976年搬去台灣, 大千先生與加州結下了一段十餘年的緣分。 本次「邱氏家族珍藏中國書畫」之主人邱永和、吳忠媖夫婦即是60年代初與張大千結識。他們所經營的德洛麗絲旅館, 也成了張大千正式移居加州之前每次造訪卡梅爾的下榻處及與眾多朋友歡聚之所。 這其中, 就有已年過期頤的知名旅美書畫家侯北人先生(1917- )。侯北人、張大千1956年初識於香港。 彼時張大千由巴西經香港赴巴黎辦展, 侯北人亦將結束在香港的雜誌出版工作移民美國。初次相識, 侯北人攜帶了一幅張大千的「漁人晚歸圖」。 兩人相談甚歡。 張大千欣然在圖上題跋:“北人仁兄得予舊作攜以見示,時先生將有北美之行予亦將西遊巴黎也。 丙申三月大千弟張爰。” 書畢意猶未盡,又以清湘道人筆法寫墨竹贈侯北人。 自此兩人開始了二十餘年的書畫往來、詩詞唱和。

FROM TWO ARISES THREE: THE COLLABORATIVE WORKS OF ARNOLD CHANG AND MICHAEL CHERNEY

March 2, 2018 - University Museum and Art Gallery, HKU

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) presents From Two Arises Three: The Collaborative Works of Arnold Chang and Michael Cherney from March 2 to May 6, 2018. The unbroken Chinese ink painting tradition has developed continuously over the course of more than a millennium, and this evolution continues into the present day, as evidenced by the current popularity of contemporary ink. While Chinese contemporary art has gained prominence over the past decades, there has been a clear dichotomy between purely contemporary works and those with a stronger connection to tradition. This division now appears to be fading as traditional aesthetics merges with newer forms of media.

FOUR OF THE BEST CURATED BOOTHS AT SEATTLE ART FAIR 2017

August 5, 2017 - T.s. Flock

NanHai Art’s booth isn’t just beautiful. It actually feels nourishing. The works themselves have that quality, but the compelling ways they are displayed only enhance them. Videos and small bios help lead visitors into the works by revealing the intricate process of creation. Traditional paper making and calligraphy dominate, and this lightness is balanced with water-hewn stones by He Kunlin and scrolls printed with a wooden drop block press, which itself is on display.

Working with Negative Space

September 29, 2016 - neocha

Contemporary Chinese artist Wang Tiande’s paintings engage with the cultural history of ink and its influence on the development of Chinese painting and personal expression. His work is deep and brooding, often rooted in classical landscapes and calligraphy but executed in a way that breathes new life and meaning into the traditional art form. His upcoming exhibition Literati Gatheringwill be showcased at San Francisco Bay’s Asia Art Week. It presents the artist’s “Houshan” series of layered, deconstructed compositional elements, created in his unique style as a response to the paintings and calligraphy of classical Chinese masters. Wang hopes to inspire discussion about the past, the present, and the ability to respect the timelessness of traditional art forms.

Liu Kuo-sung brought Chinese art into bold new world

August 6, 2014 - SF Chronicle & SF Gate

What would it take to accelerate innovation in China, just as a once raging tiger economy paces sluggishly? Perhaps the country's educators can learn from the work of artist Liu Kuo-sung, once labeled a political subversive for his pursuit of western modernism and now oft described as the "father of modern Chinese painting." Both traditional Chinese ink painting and the epic landscapes of the Song dynasty as well as abstract expressionism and hard-edged abstraction inform his work, though Liu himself stresses experimentation above all.

NanHai Art Presents: Rebel as Creator - The Art of Liu Kuo-sung and His Students

May 20, 2014 - Exhibition Statement

As the artist delicately pulls the fibers out of his paper, one by one, the crisp snows of the Himalayas arise vividly from a haze of black and gray ink. From this exposure of what lies underneath the painted surface ground, this removal of ink, emerge with miraculous clarity monumental mountain forms. Liu Kuo-sung’s work both evokes and denies the accomplishments of early masters of landscape painting, who created grand landscapes by painstakingly building up their texture strokes in ink.
