羅穎的山水秘境遊記|LINGERING IN LUO YING’S POETIC SHANSHUI LANDSCAPE

《疊山記》是杭州畫家羅穎的首個香港個展,並在漢雅軒 (Hanart TZ Gallery) 展出近五年的精彩作品。羅穎身為學院派導師,師承傳統山水畫創作手法,卻自認是愛新鮮感的人,有著當代山水的創新風格。其作品靈感大多來自生活元素,例如旅遊、仙俠片和電影,希望傳承經典之餘,能在思想上尋求突破,山水畫亦能因應時代而有更多變化。



是次展覽分為嫩綠、粉紅區域,前者展出2014 – 16的作品,後者展出2016 – 18年的新作,展現羅穎在近年創作的層次變化。羅穎的畫作題材多變,展現都市山水、傳統園林和仙境之美,由山石形狀以至園林規劃的細節皆變化多端卻又互相協調。

技術上,羅穎用了傳統手法 – 水墨渲染,在輕薄的絹本上一層層上色,營造仙境般的夢幻感,作品的底色卻用上西洋色彩的淡雅粉色配襯,融合中國古典美和西洋特色。擺設上,為加強畫作的立體感和力量感,展品亦以多種形式展出,如卷軸畫《驚鶴圖》、立畫《鶴雲絲雨弄春柔》和精緻外框裝飾的《永福八景》,彷彿引領觀者走進夢幻秘境,處處可見畫家的細膩心思。

Layered Hills, the first solo exhibition in Hong Kong by the renowned ink painter Luo Ying takes place at Hanart TZ Gallery, featuring Luo Ying’s important works of the last five years. Luo Ying inherits traditional shanshui painting spirit and techniques, but surprisingly, she embraces novelty and seeks to apply manifests contemporary and innovative art style. Her inspiration mostly comes from daily life such as travelling, Xian Xia tv dramas and movies. She aims to make innovation beyond the conventional presentation of landscape painting.

The exhibition area is divided into two sections to present the transformation of Luo’s artworks: light green section showcases the artworks created in the year 2014 – 16 while the light pink section showcases the artworks created in the year 2016 – 18. The themes of Luo’s paintings cover from city landscape, classic garden and wonderland. The shapes of mountain, rocks vary with landscaping planning, yet all elements are coordinated and harmonious.

Technically, Luo Ying applies traditional painting approach – Chinese ink rendering to create a sense of fantasy by adding washes of ink and colour on silk layer by layer multiple times. With elegant ink and background colour combining with classical garden scenery, Luo Ying artworks incorporate Chinese classical beauty and Western characteristic. To enhance the stereoscopic power of paintings, Luo’s artworks are displayed with several kinds of picture frame or format, for example, the exhibition showcases scroll painting “Startled Cranes”, large-scale vertical painting “Softness of Spring” and series “Eight Scenic Views of Yongfu Monastery”. As if led by Luo Ying’s painting, the viewers encounter the quiet and linger in a wonderland.
