大地生命力水墨創作─嶺南 冠清 陳
Chen was born in a poor family and the motivation for his learning how to paint is to paint the landscape from his childhood memory. Thus, he draws nature in Chinese paintings outside of work. His style is detailed and realistic and is thus praised by the art circle that his paintings exhibit the visual effects which ”the eyes of his animals are as if they were able to think and his birds and flowers are as if they were coming of the canvas alive.” In addition, he is able to go beyond the compatibility of heavy colors and ink and brings out the quality texture out of pristineness.
Focus：His paintings exhibit the visual-conveying effects: the essence of landscape paintings lays in leaving space, by the technique of “traceless or half-trace brush strokes” to exhibit the “floating and accumulating” sea of cloud or thin fog & light smoke; his water falls exhibit “a sense of flying and jumping”; while his lakes exhibit “a sense of crystal clearness that it’s as if you could see right to the bottom.”
