徐龍森水墨下的山水仙境 | CHINESE INK LANDSCAPE BY XU LONG SEN

徐龍森浸淫於中國的博大繪畫傳統,在當代繪畫的語境中,試圖糅合傳統和當代法式,由是從根本處改變筆墨的形態與意蘊。他的巨幅山水氣勢恢宏,昂然以新時代的姿態走出傳統水墨伏案創作的空間局限,挑戰展館的建築空間,以開拓者的眼界刷新山水畫的界限。

徐龍森個展《雲山蒼蒼》將在漢雅軒展示其近年的重要創作成果:巨型裝置《山水圖騰柱》。一組高度達三米的「山水畫柱」將介入展覽空間,構造一個可「遊」的精神場域。本展覽亦將展出多件「巨幅山水」新作,配以其今年最新的彩墨《花系列》,展現畫家在風格和技法上的持續發展和突破。

Xu Longsen’s key contribution to the evolution of landscape painting is his own concept of ‘monumental ink landscape painting,’ which is both deeply immersed in the Chinese monumental painting tradition, and yet at the same time brings to it a completely contemporary language, representing the artist’s own methodology of fusing the traditional and the contemporary. Most significant in this methodology is the way in which the artist brings about a fundamental change in the form and connotation of brushwork. His monumental landscapes conjure a breathtaking, almost overwhelming sense of vastness and grandeur, boldly drawing out a fresh and contemporary spirit from within the still-evolving heart of the landscape tradition, and simultaneously breaking out of the spatial boundaries of that tradition. In this way Xu also creates a new kind of challenge to the confines of the exhibition hall, and a means of breaking through them. Xu Longsen is truly a pioneer, opening up new spaces and new vistas for Chinese landscape art.

Mountains in the Clouds at Hanart TZ Gallery showcases Xu’s most important works of his recent oeuvre, including the monumental installation Shanshui Totem. Comprised of massive ‘landscape pillars’ measuring over three metres high, Xu’s artwork acts as its own intervention in the gallery space, conjuring a spiritual landscape through which one can ‘leisurely wander’.

Together with Shanshui Totem and a select group of Xu’s monumental landscape paintings, Mountains in the Clouds also marks the Hong Kong debut of Xu’s new group of semi-abstract works, Flower Series, completed just this year, in which the artist explores further experimental breakthroughs in the style, technique and language of ink painting.
