    Abstraction

    Richard Wong Chin-Kim is a Malaysian artist who indulges in memories and mindscapes.He is an artist drawing on the artist within and drawing on the right side of the brain. His approach in art is that of the right-mode --- intuitive, spatial, onoverbal, simultaneous and perceptual.

    In his abstracted mindscapes based on submerged memories of places seen, noted and processed, the sub-conscious is permitted to roam. The artist is a much-travelled person, roaming Planet Earth in search of art and collectibles, tea and sympathy and Shaolin martial art and health-cum-longevity. As an individual, he is interested and interesting, keen to share his multifanous interests, which ranged from watercolour-painting to Chinese tea-ceremony, with others.

    Lingering memos and memories of China, Nepal, India, Australia and so forth provided the impetus to launch his series of dreamy, lyrical mindscapes.

    In his classic, The Meaning of Art, the late great Sir Herbert Read posited: "We must not be afraid of this word 'abstract'. All art is primarily abstract."

    In his elucidating tone, understanding Abstract Art, Frank Whiford opines: Whether the word abstract or a synonym is used, a definition remains difficult, perhaps impossible to achieve. Just as all art is primarily abstract, all abstract art is, in a sense, representational. Some abstract paintings intentionally allude to aspects of the familiar world; others unintentionally evoke them! It is difficult to invent an image which will not remind viewer of something. The urge to see a face in every circle is irresistible. Even a perfect horizontal line bisecting a rectangle will look like a landscape."

    Leonardo da Vinci, in his Notebooks, noted: "It should not be hard for you to stop sometimes and look into the stains of walls, or ashes of a fire or clouds or mud or like places in which you may find really marvellous ideas."

    In Richard Wong's abstraction, the landscape is the basis of his theme. The mindscapes are derived from the various components of the lands and forms of the sky, land and sea punctuated with mists, rocks and erosions which served to enrich the textural images. The mindscapes represent his cryptomnesia or concealed recollection burst forth in terms of glows, flows, cracks, stains, veils, dribbles, dots and splashes resulting in positive and negative textural effects that recalled the Abstract Expressionist renditions of Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Morris Louis, Helen Frankenthaler and Sam Francis in variations. In his visual essays, there is the rhythmic beat of the forces of nature that spells poetry.

    Employing oil and acrylics on canvas and equipped with brushes, pallete knives for various textural effects, Richard Wong concocted a variety of images that, seen in the light of da Vince's slant, are a notion of poetry in motion. Altogether the marks and stains challenge one of a variety of reading of places evocative and poetic.

    Frank Whiford reminds us: "Abstract art approached with an open mind can suggest entirely new ways of seeing. Knowledge, of the painter's ideas and intentions, experience, gained from looking at pictures, and open-mindedness: these represent the viewers' contribution, the key to forming judgments and enjoying abstract art."

    Back in 1890, Maurice Denis noted perceptively: "It must be remembered that any painting - before being a war horse, a nude woman, or some anecdote - is essentially a flat surface covered with colours and arranged in a certain order."

    In conclusion, kindly allow me to share with you a thought from the poet Percy Bysshe Shelly:
    The mind in creation is as a fading coal which some invisible influence, like an inconstant mind, awakens to transitory brightness; this arises from within....and the conscious portions of our nature are unprophetic either of its approach or of its departure."

    Verily, truly. food for meditation.

    WHITE PARADISE - a sequel to "In Search of Shangri-La".

    In his personal sojourn to seek for perfection and nature's pristine and untouched beauty - a journey akin to James Hilton's quest for Shangri-La, the lost paradise on earth, Richard Wong's journey has now taken him to the surreal world of steep mountains and deep valleys with its heart-stopping visage of sheer vertical cliffs and deep plunging valleys and cascading waterfalls found only in this remote southwestern corner of China. In the province of Sichuan - China's largest province bordering the province of Yunnan to the south and Tibet to the west, near the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, the region known as China's Hidden Heart and which is home to many of China's ethnic minorities.

    From April to June 1998, Richard Wong had started his sojourn from Chengdu, home of the great Tang poet Du Fu (712-770) and the capital of Sichuan Province. From there, he slowly made his way through the quaint remote villages situated at the foothills of the Qionglai Mount Range on the Alba Plateau. Using the local means of transport, the old and rickety trucks salvaged from old army trucks left behind by the Allied forces during WWII when Kunming was the most important transit stage of the old China - Burma Road, he traversed along the long and winding mountain roads towards Yunnan Province in South West China passing through the old Southern Silk Road, to see for himself the "Lost Paradise" before it is "discovered" and spoilt by the hordes of tourist that would soon swamp this remote corner of the world.

    Broke and feeling a little homesick by now, Richard Wong had to break journey but he vowed to return to continue his personal quest for his Shangri-La.

    Captivated and enchanted by what he saw, Richard Wong soon felt restless and was eager to continue his sojourn. So in October 1998, he flew to Chengdu once again, to take the high road - but this time northwards for he had set his eyes on Kunlun Mountain. (Kunlun Range) venerated throughout China as the birthplace of China's two great rivers, the Yellow River to the north and the mighty Yangtze River to the south.

    Then from Lhasa in Xizang (Tibet), he traversed westwards towards the Karakorum Shan in South West Xinjian Autonomous Region and hence to his destination of Qogir Shan (Mount Qogir). There, he trekked the land of jagged mountain peaks and spare mountain hamlets nestled in between deep clear lakes which turned into shimmering glaciers of sheer white ice with all shades of white in winter from zinc white to grey white - which provides a sharp contrast to clear blue skies and the changing golden hues of the leaves of autumn. He continued his journey to Nepal where he made his last stop at the base camp of Mount Everest.

    Entranced and captivated by what he saw, Richard Wong has tried to transpose onto canvas, the vivid and austere of what he calls "White Paradise" - a mindscape so alien to the lush tropical colours of his native land of Malaysia. Here, as far as the eyes could see were the far pavilions of sheer gleaming glacial tops glistening in the sun in the distant mountains. All these, the eyes of Richard Wong have seen - these visages of magic that he calls his "White Paradise" - not far from his paradise on earth, his Shangri-La.

    “A BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY”

    at Top Art Gallery 

    by RICHARD WONG.

    Richard Wong’s inspirations are largely derived from nature’s pristine and wondrous beauty which had enthralled him in his travels throughout the countries of the Pacific rims and many other Asia countries including Yunnan, Tibet, Nepal and Silk Road – China.

    The call of the mountains, this time the lure of the Rockies of Canada, has proved too irresistible for Richard Wong, the intrepid Mountain Man, to ignore. Having trekked the lonely and desolate mountain ranges of the Himalayas and the Kunlun Shan located in Sichuan, Province of South West China in the late 1990’s Richard Wong is off again, this time westwards to the Rockies of Alberta, Canada. Along the way, he will no doubt make a detour to the Okotoks and Lake Louise with its sheer and transparent water, glistening in the sun like diamonds and the mirror image of the surrounding mountains transposed on its calm waters.

    And now the admirers of Richard Wong’s artistry and creation will no doubt forget the hectic hustle and bustle of life to pause, reflect and admire the true wonder and glory of one of nature's greatest creation, the Rockies of Canada.

    The exhibition will be held from the 11th June till 25th June 2012

    黄 振景 Richard Wong (日本語)

    現代国際抽象画界に名を馳せる画家の黄振景氏、1955年にマレーシアクアラルンプールで生まれ、マレーシアクアラルンプール美術学院西洋学科を卒業しました。かつてパリの「国際芸術都市」のスタジオに招かれ研修をしながら近代美術を研究・考察したことがあります。現在はプロの画家として活躍中。

    黄振景氏は抽象画の研究と創作活動に携わってから40年、その間、30回以上の個展を開いております。

    黄振景氏は現在、マレーシア中央現代芸術研究院主席を務めており、世界書画家協会
    マレーシア支部会長、日本現代美術協会理事及評議員、マレーシア国際現代書画連盟キュレーター、
    マレーシア現代水彩画家協会発起人の1人、アジア水彩画連盟会員、世界水彩画連盟協会と
    フランス国際美術家協会会員(IAA AIAP UNESCO、 PARIS)Since1986であります。

    黄振景氏は絵の具箱とカメラを背負い行脚・冒険することが好きで、北インド、ネパール、中国チベット、四川、雲南、新疆、ヨーロッパ、アメリカ、ニュージーランド、オーストラリア、アラスカ、オセアニア、南極など至る所に彼の足跡が残っています。またヒマラヤ山脈、カナダのロッキー山脈をも制覇したことがあり、美術のために彼は自分と戦い、極限にチャレンジ、独りで登山、想像を絶する困難を打ち破り、彼は行者のようで、まさにこころの中で描きながら
    の旅の数々であり、心の底から沸きあがって来る大自然に対する情熱でありました。そのような超然たる姿勢、その執着精神、その限りない追い求め、その己に対する容赦しない挑戦、そしてその「生死は度外」の精神。これら全てが彼の人物像であります。だれにとっても、彼は、心を澄みきるまで洗い流すときの最高の鏡であります。

    彼の行動はまさに大自然に身を投じるようなものであり、大自然に学び、天地の正気を引きつけ、大自然の真善美を悟る。所謂自然に教わり、大自然の中から栄養を吸収しているのであります。広大無辺な世界でさまざまな形をしたものが随時、いたるところにあり、いろいろな色彩が目の前を流れていく。彼はこれらに思いきり無我夢中になり、これらを思い存分楽しんでいるのであり、絵の中の点と線、色塊、彼にとってそれらはすべてが言葉を放つものであります。それらを思う存分に塗り描いていくのであります。そして彼は非常に敏感であり感受性が高く、まるで恋する人の腕に指先が触れたような感覚を持つ。これこそ絵創作において最高の状態であり、心の中で画いたイメージを彼の手で感情に富み、呼吸する魂のある生命体として画かれるのであります。大自然の風格と趣とを絶妙に融合し、物と人間とが交流していく世界を描き出してくれます。1枚1枚の作品は全て親和性に富み、感情豊かなのです。

    彼は、平たい弾力のあるペインティングナイフを平等や調和、知恵と見立て、色豊かで
    すばらしい世界を創造することを願っています。故に彼は大金を惜しまなくいいナイフを捜し続けました。大小を問わず、彼が自由自在にそれらを振り回し、側面だの裏面だの、左だの右だの、或いは上下自由奔放に行き渡り、絶妙の域に達します。また絵の模様が整然として美しく、緩急を上手に使いこなし、庖丁解牛のように余裕たっぷり。刃の片側で非常に細い色線を引き出したり、毅然とした強靭な線を描き出せます。ペインティングナイフで画いた物体は絵筆の比ではないのです。たとえ1本の線を上手に画くにも、30年あまり続けてきた訓練、探求そして切磋琢磨のお陰でこのように熟練した画き方の域に達することができた訳であります。

    1975年から、彼の作品は国を代表して韓国、日本、中国、香港、インドネシア、シンガポール、タイ、台湾、オランダ、オーストラリア、カナダ、イギリス、フランス、オーストリア、
    ニューヨーク、シカゴなど各地の国家級展示会や美術館収蔵に招かれています。

    黄振景 RICHARD WONG

    享誉国际当代抽象画艺术家黄振景,出生于1955年马来西亚吉隆坡,毕业于马来西亚吉隆坡美术学院西洋画科系。曾受邀访问巴黎国际艺术城工作室进修油画并考察现代艺术,现为专业画家。

    黄振景从事抽象画的探讨与创作至今已有40年,曾先后举办30余次画展。

    黄振景现任马来西亚中央当代艺术研究院主席、世界书画家协会马来西亚分会会长、日本现代美术协会理事及评议员,马来西亚国际现代书画联盟策展人、马来西亚现代水彩画家协会会長,亚细亚水彩画联盟文化大使、世界水彩画联盟协会及法国国际艺术家协会会员(IAA AIAP UNESCO, PARIS)Since1986。

    黄振景喜欢提着画箱背着相机云游、历险,他的足迹遍布北印度、尼泊尔、中国的西藏、四川、云南、新疆、欧洲、美国、新西兰、澳大利亚、阿拉斯加、大洋洲、南极,他征服过喜玛拉雅山脉、加拿大的洛矶山脉,为了他的艺术,他挑战自我,挑战极限,独自一人登上,不可想象的艰苦,他就像一位行者,那是真正堪称心路历程,是发自心底的那种对大自然的热爱。那种超然、那种执着、那种不懈的苦苦追求、那种对自我的放逐和挑战,那种虽九死而不悔的精神。无论对谁,那都是对心灵的一次美好而清澈的荡涤。

    这是真正的投身于大自然的怀抱,向大自然学习,吸纳天地正气,领悟大自然的真善美,所谓师承自然,从大自然中吸取养分。大千世界各种形象随时随地,有光有色流过眼前,他尽情地痴醉期间,这是何等的快乐。画中一点一线、一块色块,都是语言。放笔纵情,画刀触之,敏感异常,仿佛指尖碰到恋人手臂,这才是绘画最佳状态,久仰心中的形象便化做有情感、有呼吸、有灵魂的生命。与大自然神韵合一,达到物我交流的境界。每一幅作品富有亲和力,都是感情的结晶。

    他这把平薄富有弹性之刀,代表平等、和谐与智慧,能创造色彩缤纷的美好世界。所以他不惜千金买刀,不论大刀小刀,挥舞自如,或侧或反、忽左忽右、或上或下、自由奔波、出神入化;纹理有序、轻重缓急,犹如庖丁解牛,游刃有余。刀刃一侧,能拉出纤细色线,或坚挺线条,画刀所画出的形体,画笔难于比拟。即使一线的刀痕功力,就要付出三十余年的苦练、探索、研习,常年不缀,才能达到如此熟巧境地。

    1975年起,作品曾代表国家受邀赴韩国、日本、中国、香港、印尼、新加坡、泰国、台湾、荷兰、澳大利亚、加拿大、英国、法国、奥地利、纽约、芝加哥等国家展览及美术馆收藏。
