  • 中國水墨畫發展中,從傳統到當代,山水畫始終是水墨畫家們熱衷的繪畫類型,畫家透過山水風景的勾勒除了展現筆法墨韻的經營巧思,最重要的是能夠將個人的胸懷與感情寄託於山水風景之中。中國「山水」二字的概念最早出自於六朝詩人的山水詩;山水畫起源最初也並非是單純展現畫者所「觀看之景」的現實模仿,而是與當時詩學文化融合,帶有展現玄學論辯與道德意味的「玄化山水」。為提升道德與精神而來的山水畫觀看方式,所影響的是山水畫中的山水可不受限於現實、地理上的真實面貌,進而可以是想像的山水。不論是帶有真實情境或為了體現精神氣韻的想像山水,皆表明畫家如何將觀看的風景轉變為「山水」的複雜過程;其中牽涉的不僅是目下景色如何成為畫中山水的繪畫問題,還包含了山水如何與畫家個人精神融合、如何傳達畫家的義理與求道之心,以及觀畫者如何收受與領悟的各種成因。






    Throughout the development of Chinese ink painting, ink artists, both traditional and contemporary, have always shown great enthusiasm for the genre of landscape. In addition to using meticulously executed ink brushwork and expressions to depict natural landscapes, more importantly, artists seek to convey their personal thoughts and sentiments through the landscapes portrayed. Traditional Chinese landscape painting is referred to as shanshui, which is a concept first recorded in landscape poetry from the Six Dynasties era of China (220 CE – 589 CE). The origin of landscape paintings was not simply based on the concept of realistically portraying the views seen; it was an amalgamation of the poetry culture at the time and also expressed arguments and ethics derived from Xuanxue, which then transformed into xuan-ized shanshui, or “mysticized” landscape. It is observed that artists of the genre’s objective of seeing was aimed at moral and spiritual improvement; therefore, they didn’t merely perceive landscapes in paintings as realistic, geographical landscapes but also imaginary ones. The complex process of transforming the landscapes seen into paintings is observed in both depictions of realistic sceneries and imaginary landscapes aimed at conveying spiritual essence. This involves not only the initial question of how the scenery before the artist can become a painted landscape, but also how a painting can fuse together with the artist’s personal ethos and convey the artist’s virtue and Taoist pursuit.


    The same proposition is observed in Taiwanese contemporary ink painting, but the difference is that the artists have long shifted their gaze away from traditional lofty mountains and flowing waters to various contemporary landscapes, including urban jungles, country pastures, and dynamic coastal areas. The Chinese term for landscape (or paysage in French) in jingguan was a concept adapted from the West in the 20th century, and is a term that suggests view-oriented scenery and composition. However, it differs from the Western emphasis on perspective theory to represent landscapes, because the ways of seeing involved with Chinese landscape paintings reach beyond just gazing from afar and encompasses personal immersive experiences of the mind and the realm involved. As these artists direct their gazes at their realistic surroundings, the paintings created are no longer works of shanshui in the traditional sense. There are also other new contemporary ink paintings which deconstruct and explore the fundamentals of ink, with innovative brushwork, vibrant and intense colors of ink applied to showcase the unique textural mountains and the sundry of topographical traits found in Taiwan. 


    Seeing the diverse medley of contemporary landscapes, landscape-oriented artistic conceptions in the genre of contemporary ink painting have also gradually shifted to show personal spiritual and emotional abstract expressions. Some artists have even opted to highlight landscapes from their own hometowns and to feature “mountains and seas” with distinctive Taiwanese regional features. This exhibition departs from this concept of contemporary landscape paintings, with ways to appreciate art shared through showing several significant features found in the genre of traditional Chinese landscape paintings. The exhibition seeks to present in an in-depth manner the realizations and innovations of Taiwanese ink artists through their unceasing evolutionary journey in contemporary landscape.
