Interior Journeys: Traditional Chinese Paintings

Level 2, 18 May- 25 August

Alive with vivid colors and expressive brush strokes, the paintings in this exhibition express profound emotions.

Traditional Chinese landscape paintings have evolved over centuries.  These contemporary watercolour and ink paintings continue a tradition where artists use the metaphor of the natural world to express deeper feelings in what has been described as “mind landscapes”.  In these paintings, we are immersed in the artist’s Interior Journeys.

Xu Zimin’s work was first exhibited in the Chinese Museum in 1998 along with the other artists in the exhibition.  The most notable of the group, Xu Zimin studied at the Jiangnan Painting Academy in Shanghai and has exhibited internationally.  Less is known about the careers of Yi Fei Lu, Ren Tu Wang and Huang Hu and we are continuing to research these artists and identify one unknown artist.

All of these artworks will become part of the Chinese Museum’s permanent collection.  With these acquisitions, we will preserve artworks that reflect the evolution of Chinese painting for future researchers and audiences to the museum.

Special thanks for the outstanding curatorial research by Vanessa Shia, who has worked tirelessly to try to solve some of the mysteries around these artworks and the artists.

 

 

活泼生动的色彩和刚劲有力的笔触,这次展览中的画作皆表达着丰富的情感。  

中国的传统风景画已经发展了数百年。这些当代水彩画和水墨画承传了传统,艺术家以自然风景为隐喻来表达内心深处的情感,这被称之为“心灵风景”。而这些绘画都能让观赏者沉浸在艺术家的“心灵之旅”中。

徐自民与数位中国艺术家的作品于1998年首次在澳华历史博物馆展出,这当中最知名的就是徐自民。他曾于上海江南画院学习,其画作亦曾在国际上展出过。对于陆一飞,王仁兔和黄猇的职业生涯本馆了解甚少,我们正在持续搜集这几位艺术家的资料並希望能识别其中一位未知身分的艺术家。

这些作品将成为澳华历史博物馆永久藏品的一部分。本馆将妥善保存这些能反映中国绘画演变的艺术作品,以供未来研究人员参考和参观人士欣赏。

特别在此感谢Vanessa Shia为展览所做的资料搜集。因为她不遗馀力的努力,让本馆对这些艺术品和艺术家的创作意念有更深的了解。
