INK BRUSSELS 2019

布鲁塞尔水墨之周

6 to 12 May 2019

Statement of "Life Archeline" by Jiang Dandan.

In my "Life Archeline" 生命玄线 series, it can be seen that in the paper space overflowing, natural dancing "grass line" 线草, the letter "一" (one) appears more often, but also other types of lines. The plural growth of lines on the plane represents my concrete exploration of the philosophical view of "diversed diversity" 多样的多样性 in the aesthetic space of abstract writing. Those unfettered free calligraphic lines are like the universe breathing freely, in every place, every moment, to absorb the momentum, to open up at the same time, while continuing to recover, folding inwards. The question is at which point the brush strokes start folding inwards (在哪一点上收拢?).

The key point is to achieve this simultaneously, in contact with different materials, jostled, deep into and out of the encounter, while entering the world and writing minute spaces, but always with unintentional, random, natural strokes to both enter and endlessly pull away, emitting infinite vitality from the calmness, sticking out fulfilling and hesitating, cruising and flowing status.

在张大我的“生命玄线”系列(纸本水墨)中,触目可见在纸面的空间漫溢、自然舞动的“线草”,有“一”中蕴含的多,也有在“容贯性”平面上的复数生长,呈现出“多样的多样性”的哲学观在抽象书写的美学空间里的具体探索。这种包孕万象、又通达于一气的美学风格在这个系列的作品空间里可谓推向极致。那些毫无拘束的自由书写的线条,如同宇宙呼吸一般大舒展,在每一处、每个瞬间的吞吐、吸纳中打开拓展气势的同时,却又不断收回、向内收拢:问题是笔触“在哪一点上收拢”? 其关键在于同时性的实现,在与不同材质的接触、厮磨、深入又抽离的遇合之中,同时地进入世界和书写空间的细部,却总是用无意、随机、自然的笔触进入,却又同时无限地抽离,散发出平淡之间的无限之活力,探出充盈与顾盼、游弋与流转的形态。
