SONG YONG HUA
Song Yong Hua was born in 1975 in Shanghai. He graduated from Shanghai Theater Academy in 1998. Influenced 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 the 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.
宋永華，1975出生於上海，畢業於上海戲劇學院舞台美術系。 宋永華的作品曾展於台灣，巴塞隆納和德國。 受到中國傳統思想教育的宋永華熟悉中國傳統的各種藝術形式。 在他的創作中,他穩固地培養他對書法,古詩,繪畫的感覺。 他的風景處處有「中國味」,也就是藝術中的中國精髓和本質。
由於宋永華的主題和傳統思想有密切的關係,在執行上也有新穎之處。 他的繪畫可以比喻為抓取自然奇觀的畫布上的視像詩。 空間的留白包含了質變的可能性,作為繪畫結構創作上的重中之重,它起到了加強主題的作用。 憂鬱,悲傷,孤獨,空虛,困惑,無限的責問－這些都在宋永華風景畫中扮演同樣的角色。 並且他將傳統筆墨變成了內核,而將形式感很強的西方式的平面構成拿來作為包裹這一內核的外衣。
欣賞宋永華的作品,總讓人感受到「自然」,感受到大自然的律動。 但這一切,都是靠作品中藝術形象自身的感染力,而不是靠說教。 他在作品中運用巧妙的手法縮短了欣賞者與作品的時空距離,使讀者如身臨其境,感到分外親切和自然,彷彿在和畫家一起感受和思考著眼前的生活。
