在利物浦博物馆《中英艺术交流展览会》上的发言


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to say what a privilege and honour it is to be here at the celebration of this exhibition, representing the great contemporary masters of Chinese Brush Painting. On behalf of the British Chinese Cultural Society, I welcome all friends and guests who have come to visit this exhibition.

The history of Chinese Brush Painting stretches over thousands of years, making it the oldest, continuous form of painting in the history of civilization.

I remember a famous European artist once compared the history of Western art to an arrow. I like this metaphor. If realism with photographic precision is the extreme for one path of the arrow, and contemporary abstractism is the other, then Western art is the arrow that has taken both paths.

Chinese traditional painting is different, its path has always been in the middle of the two extremes. Although at some points in time or some styles of painting may approach towards one end or the other, it always tend to be somewhere in the middle.

From the nineteenth century to the twentieth century, we see examples of the interaction between Chinese and Western paintings. French Impressionism was inspired by the the Japanese Ukiyo-e, which originated from Chinese heavy-colored painting of the Tang Dynasty. This was precisely the turning point of Western modern painting, which directed to abstraction.  Many of Picasso's drawings with lines can see the traces of Chinese painting.

Some aspects of Chinese art is influenced by both the realism and the abstract of Western art. Here with us today is the famous Chinese painter Li Geng, whose father is Li Keran. He was one of China's top 10 painting masters in the 20th century. He borrowed the concept of Western "light", and has made great contributions to the evolution of Chinese painting. Today's painters also provide  examples of this: Mr. Li Geng used the abstract ink painting to represent famous Western musicians Mahler's works, Mr. Chen Ping's painting style has a similar atmosphere to that of Andrew Wyeth's work, and on the day before yesterday, Chinese oil painter Long Li You completed a portrait of the Mayor of York, Dave Taylor, in the style of Western painting.

Although we live in the era of the global village, cultural mutual understanding is very limited between the Chinese and Westerners. The famous art critic, Gombrich once said that the Chinese "even learn their art by a strange method of meditation". To enhance understanding, we need more communication between both sides, and this is the aim of this exhibition.

Today's exhibition represents the top of Chinese painting, and we want to show you the spectrum of styles seen in contemporary Chinese paintings.

Once again, I would like to extend my gratitutde to the Liverpool Museum for the exhibition, allowing Chinese artists, local and academic audiences to communicate with each other.

Finally, I wish the exhibition a success.

Thank you.

女士们先生们:

今晚,我感到十分骄傲和荣幸能参与代表了当代中国艺术大师水准的绘画展览。我代表英国旅英文化学会,欢迎所有前来观看展览的朋友和嘉宾。

中国画已有几千年的历史,在世界文明史上是一个古老的、独一无二的、连续发展的绘画形式。

记得一位著名的欧洲艺术家曾把西方艺术史比作一支箭。我喜欢这个比喻。如果说具有照相一般精确性的写实绘画是这只箭飞向的一个极端,那么当代的抽象主义就是另一个极端。西方绘画的道路正像箭一样,达到了两个极端。

中国的传统绘画是不同的,其漫长的发展路径一直是两个极端的中间部分。虽然在某些时间点上或风格上的绘画靠近一端或另外一端,但其本身始终处在一个中间的位置上。

从19世纪到20世纪,我们看到许多中国画与西方绘画相互影响的例子:法国印象派受过日本的浮世绘的启发,而浮世绘又源自中国唐代的重彩画样式。印象派恰恰是西方现代绘画走向抽象的转折点。毕加索的许多水墨线条的作品也有中国画的影子。

中国画的某些方面也受到了西方写实和抽象两方面的影响。今天在场的著名中国画家李庚,他父亲李可染,是中国20世纪最顶尖的10位中国画大师之一。他借用了西方“光”的观念,为中国画的演进做出巨大贡献。今天参展的画家也能提供许多这类的例子:李庚用抽象水墨表现了著名西方音乐家马勒的音乐经典;陈平的绘画风格与安德鲁·魏斯的作品有着相似的意境;而就在前天,画家龙力游,用西方油画的方法为约克市长戴夫·泰勒画了肖像。

虽然我们已生活在地球村的时代,但在中国和欧洲之间文化上的相互了解还很有限。甚至西方著名的艺术理论家贡布里希也曾说中国人“学习他们的艺术是靠一种奇怪的冥想的方法”。要增进了解,我们需要双方更多的交流,而这也正是本次展览的目的。

今天的展览代表了当今中国画的顶级水平,我们想向你们展示出当代中国画的丰富面貌。

我再一次由衷地感谢利物浦博物馆为展览提供方便,以使中国艺术家们能与当地的和学院的观众展开交流。

最后,祝展览圆满成功,谢谢大家!

英国旅英文化学会主席:黎丽
