论写实 Realistic Art ~~ 黄运南 Ng Woon Lam nws aws

Posted by ngwoonlam on June 8, 2013

One Arbitrary Write-up that will be published in my new art catalog: 论写实 (Realistic Art), a short paragraph here…

观物者,以眼观物,以心感受;眼观为被动,心思为主动;比较主动思考与被动见物,前者其积极性的记忆,所产生的冲击感会更强烈,因此在某种思考的左古下,产生了强烈的视觉共鸣,而视其为‘真实’,所以能传神。例如:我知道榴莲是香的,见到榴莲就先入为主地想到它的香,而它的香,又与其肉的质感与颜色相连贯,只要画出此两种视觉效果,榴莲就香了。如果完全照抄,其它的像处反而喧宾夺主,抢了前两者呈现香的力量。更简单的说:写实要达到神似,要经过思考、过滤和简化才行。

My concept in realistic art allows me to understand why the delusive likeness is above shape and color duplication. Observation is a passive process while composition is an active process. Therefore, composition process creates a large impact visually. From selective memory and selective decision in composition, an artist creates visual resonance to viewers. Great sense of reality is imposed to viewers through this delusive process, which is meant by spiritual likeness in Chinese art. For example, I know a durian smells good. When I see an image of a durian, my mind starts to relate it to good smell. Its good smell is directly linked with the texture and color of its fruits. If I am able to depict these two qualities, viewers will delusively translate them to its smell. If an artist just duplicates an observation of a durian, the less important parts are equally represented which in turn will reduce the strength of the former two factors. Hence realism here is a result of an essential summary by an artist to allow visual delusion for ‘likeness’.
