The past two days may be no different to most people, but they are of special significance to Yang Ronghuan. On December 23, his personal calligraphy and painting exhibition was officially opened at Danyang New Age Civilization Practice Center Cultural Base, located on the north side of Yulong Bay in the development zone, for a period of 6 days.
Born in Danyang City in 1942, Yang Rongji likes painting since he was a boy. He was admitted to the Nanjing Academy of Fine Arts at the age of 17 when he was 17 years old. In 1962, the affiliated middle school of the Nanjing Academy of Arts ceased to operate. Yang Rongji chose to return to his hometown cinema for advertising and advocacy work. With a love for the art of calligraphy and painting, Yang Rongji always held brushes after work.
"Chinese freehand ink painting, rewriting the meaning of the pen and ink, and using the smooth ink to write the perception of art, in order to obtain the unique artistic effect of the" water halo ink chapter "and" such as multicolored ", this form of expression has always attracted With countless art followers, I am also one of them. "Yang Ronghua believed that ink painting is the highest state of Chinese painting. Therefore, he had studied various kinds of paintings since the early 1980s, and he specialized in ink painting. He said that he would use water ink to write the magnificence of mountains and rivers, and the spiritual creation of nature.
Others often say that it is more convenient to paint landscape painting with ink, a bottle of ink, a piece of rice paper, and a basin of clear water. As everyone knows, the ink and ink spread on the life declaration, and the mountains, peaks, and clouds are integrated into the ink and wash, which makes it unique in Chinese painting. It expresses this colorful nature with rich and varied ink and ink, in order to achieve the The color is better than the color. This is not a small test for the creators of calligraphy and painting. In the early days of creating ink paintings, Yang Rongzheng especially studied Shi Tao's works. He liked his naive, simple, and honest style of art, which he believed was an expression of the artist's soul. At the same time, he also made a detailed analysis of the works of landscape painting master Huang Binhong. He respected Mr. Huang Binhong's strong style and especially appreciated the artistic effects of the ever-changing blending of water and ink. "Some people call the creative process of ink painting a" pen-and-ink game. "It makes sense. I make ink-and-wash landscape painting, and I have all the past, what I saw in my dreams, and what I think in my heart are dissolved in the ink. The infiltration of ink color on rice paper changes, just like playing a game in the changing ink and wash. There are unknowable factors. In this transformation, capture, process, and refine. Among them are confusion, depression, and more unexpected surprises. And happiness. "Yang Rongzheng called this process" art creation ", which is also the joy of his life.
Because of the economic pressures facing real life, Yang Rongzhen's journey of ink painting was stagnant for some time. It was only after 2002 that he regained his brush and devoted himself to the creation of ink painting. Four years ago, Yang Rongzhen followed the famous painting and calligraphy artist Ding Guanjia to go to the Grand Canyon in the United States to sketch for half a month. After returning, the painting style changed with it.
"Rong Hui always pursues the change of ink and wash under the mountain structure. There is a layer of ink and ink penetration. After years and months, the wind blows away and he sees the golden sand." This is Ding Guanjia's evaluation of Yang Rongyu's ink painting works. In his opinion, Yang Rongzheng gave full play to the soul role of ink and wash in the entire creation, mastered the most basic principles and maximized the characteristics of ink and wash. "Heavy painting is strong, Cang is pen power, Run is ink color, pen and ink work is deep, and the charm is vivid." Natural, smooth and not slick, and some of the light inks are used just right. "Yunshan Listening to the Waterfall", "Scenery of the Mountain", "Shujiang Yunshan", "Xiajiang" and "Spring River Sailing" are all representative works of ink landscape painting .
In recent years, recommended by Mr. Ding Guanjia, Yang Ronghuan entered the Beijing calligraphy and painting circle and participated in activities organized by the China International Cultural Communication Center and the Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Art Committee. His ink painting quickly caught the attention of Beijing calligraphy and painting circles. His paintings have been collected by the Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Art Committee and the China Love Working Committee, and some of his works have also been donated to the collection of charities who donate to the education in poor areas. Several masterpieces have been collected by relevant institutions and collectors in Beijing. In 2011, he also served as a member of the Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Art Committee. The "Culture" periodical sponsored by the committee also made a special introduction to Yang Rongzheng's calligraphy and painting art, which made Yang Rongyang's work's influence rapidly increase in Beijing.
More than 70 works on display are Yang Rongzhen's exploration and realization of the art of ink painting for decades. He believes that the real painting creation is a kind of pious aspiration, hard work and hard work.
The reporter carefully looked at each of the works in the exhibition hall, and tasted the paintings on rice paper in an attempt to feel the baptism that Yang Rongzhen went through in his years. Maybe Yang Ronghuan is a distinguished and unique book painter in the eyes of others, but he firmly stated that in the art of calligraphy and painting, he is still a "student" who needs to continue learning and innovating.
