Two not once were acquainted with one another the person sat in thesame place time, looked for a topic was very difficult, I first timemet with great Mr. Ming am this kind of insufficiently natural aspect.When we ride south the automobile the peaceful city line to about tohas been forgotten by the modern people historical Mingshan -- LiangFushi, both of us as if by prior agreement have opened "the ancientrite of making sacrifices" topic. Thereupon, by ancient rite of makingsacrifices but sacrificial offering, but religion, but art. His gentlebreeze and mild rain, discussed on and on that, the opinion isoriginal, just like the rosary which the buddhist priest hand twists,links up nature, inexhaustible, obviously is the thick product sends.But it speaks the shape then like Deity demeanour(仙风道骨), solemn is classicallyelegant, in now impetuously has Canadian in the general mood ofsociety, unexpectedly some people also are retaining such makings,makes one feel fresh exceptionally. Also infects some to be accustomedto * clears the throat to come the officials which increases theconfidence level for own viewpoint to be able not but to collect onlythen gathers the god, listens in reverent attention. I thought this isthe person which accumulates by the sincere culture. When knew when heis Zhang Weiming, then as if had found his painting therefore winspraise the far and wide cultural basis.
Because has the reason, I am on close terms with afterwards with greatMr. Ming. Not a big studio increased my this patron.
As the scenery painter, great Mr. Ming travels for pleasure reallybroadly, moreover obtained quite abundant, however his actually aloneZhong Qingyu Taishan. About this, you if listen to his opinionabsolutely does not have 近水楼台 disliking of the place reasonsuperiority.
Taishan is one of Chinese culture main symbolic, is the king and theday dialogue place, also is several millenniums comes the commonpeople to pray for a son prays, sends blesses safely is at. Copieshis/her physique, its spirit is the fountainhead which the painterinspiration does not use up. Except clock sentiment Taishan, great Mr.Ming reveres ancient, the literature and history wise poem calligraphyand painting widely browses, what but appreciates is ancient's thoughtand the appeal; He meditates grasps principles, actually is buying inthe nutrient, the hole analyzes the life; He also exercises martialarts asks the law, certainly is for Consciousness the person to be able thelimit. Perhaps this is an achievement painter and achievement "thepainter" basic difference.
Regarding drawing technique I outside gate, but I have once set uptogether mathematics mathematics problem for oneself: A rigid painteradds on already thick also the solid cultural accumulation, inaddition worships, is keeping watch Taishan, what can be equal to?
Seeks the answer to continue an my person. For more than a year comes,in the great Mr. Ming's studio, unceasingly reads the writer, thepoet, the painter and the culture studies the public figure to hisreview article. These work angles are different, style respectivelydifferent, has the circle a little, all is seeing clearly America andthe spirit which the great bright landscape painting transmits,inquires about the painting the cultural tendency. More reads morethought "the hero sees slightly with" this archaism on the expressingone's ideas clarity. Moreover most made is that integer study formulawhich I was excited had the common answer - Taishan painter.
I and the friends more than once suggestion, should these articlecoagulation publications, a piece transmit everybody feeling for moreintimate friends, two comes these articles itself to have very highsavoring, until today, finally like hopes.
April one day, I proceeded to the capital together with great Mr. Minghave paid a visit the cultural celebrity, in renowned calligrapherOuyang Mr. Shi. Speaking of Taishan, first propagates Yu Si, long YuSi, also is everybody which Taishan nourishes. After has looked at thegreat bright several dozens pictures, gentleman repeatedly acclaims:Very The heart is very big! Very The heart is very big! And joyfully the new book title whichsoon published for him has written the book title.
Writes here, unable to restrain the laugh at secretly. Great Mr. Mingit "sees the heart also to display very much" in enjoins me to make inthe foreword. In the book edits the article author, in calligraphy andpainting aspect any my all self inductance not like. "The forewordbody" how didn't I also totally know that, only while convenient saysindividual idea. But, coarseness, hoped everybody do not have tocriticize, because has known oneself in under.
