SONG YONG HUA

SONG YONG HUA 

Artist Introduction:

Song Yong Hua was born in 1975 in Shanghai. He graduated from Shanghai Theatre Academy in 1998. Influence by Chinese traditional ideology, Song is familiar with various traditional Chinese forms of art. In his creation, he firmly cultivates his feelings of calligraphy, ancient poetry, and painting. His landscape is full of “Chinese”, that is, the essence and essence of China in art.

Due to his theme and traditional ideas are closely related, there are new in the implementation of the novel. Song’s paintings can be compared to the visual poems on the canvas that captures the natural wonders. The space left blank contains the possibility of qualitative change, as a top priority in the composition of painting, it plays a role in strengthening the theme. Melancholy, sadness, loneliness, emptiness, perplexity, unlimited accountability – all of these play the same role in Song’s landscapes. After that, he turned the traditional brushwork into the kernel, and the Western-style, flat-framed composition as a wrapper to this core. 

Appreciating Song’s works, always make us feel “natural”, feel the rhythm of nature. But all these rely on the contagious power of the artistic image in the work, not on preaching. He uses clever techniques to shorten the space-time distance between the viewer and his works, feel exceptionally friendly and natural, as if feeling and contemplating the immediate life with the artist.

画家介绍:

宋永华,1975出生于上海,毕业于上海戏剧学院舞台美术系。宋永华的作品曾展于台湾,巴塞罗那和德国。受到中国传统思想教育的宋永华熟悉中国传统的各种艺术形式。在他的创作中,他稳固地培养他对书法,古诗,绘画的感觉。他的风景处处有“中国味”,也就是艺术中的中国精髓和本质。

由于宋永华的主题和传统思想有密切的关系,在执行上也有新颖之处。他的绘画可以比作抓取自然奇观的画布上的视像诗歌。空间的留白包含了质变的可能性,作为绘画结构创作上的重中之重,它起到了加强主题的作用。忧郁,悲伤,孤独,空虚,困惑,无限的责问——这些都在宋永华风景画中扮演同样的角色。并且他将传统笔墨变成了内核,而将形式感很强的西方式的平面构成拿来作为包裹这一内核的外衣。

欣赏宋永华的作品,总让人感受到“自然”,感受到大自然的律动。但这一切,都是靠作品中艺术形象自身的感染力,而不是靠说教。他在作品中运用巧妙的手法缩短了欣赏者与作品的时空距离,使读者如身临其境,感到分外亲切和自然,仿佛在和画家一起感受和思考着眼前的生活。
