臻妙境


「臻妙境」這件作品,在繼承原來創作風格的基礎上,更深入地注重人物內心的刻畫,以「兼工代寫」的筆墨手法勾勒出一幅至瑧入境的畫面。身處其中的人物,坐擁精緻奇巧的太湖石,神色自若宛如身處山水之間, 靜看紅塵浮沉,怡然自得;塑造出人物內心「非淡泊無以明志,非寧靜無以致遠」的處世哲思。  

 

涓涓流水般的衣紋與武士廣闊的胸襟相得益彰;指尖輕輕一揮,座下一塊太湖石迸發萬眾矚目的金光,氣度非凡地展現生機渤發、超越自我的力量,談笑間檣櫓灰飛煙滅、 點石成金。虛實相生,一派安逸閑適、與世無爭的景象躍現眼前;任憑世間風雲變幻,仍保持心靜無垢,觀照自在,渾然忘我,進入至臻至妙的境界 。這件作品充滿東方的「禪意」,整個造型沉穩厚重充滿文化底蘊又不失現代感,給人們展現出作品背後一種超凡脫俗的精神境界,表達藝術家對這種人生境界的嚮往,平靜的心境與淡定從容的精神之美 。
