Title of Exhibition: Termination of Writing: Inoue Yuichi, Lee Ufan, Zhang Yu

 

The tradition of Chinese literati paintings are centered with ink poetics from the four masters’ “freehand brushwork” in Yuan dynasty to Xu Wei and Zhu Da’s “large freehand” in late Ming dynasty, and it made the mistake of image realism and modern formalism since the 20 century’s modern transformation of “New Chinese Paintings”.

Inoue Yuichi transformed Chinese calligraphy into a kind of writing expressionism, changed the writing of calligraphy into a kind of abstraction, and treated the writing in paintings exclusively as a kind of writing modernism, going along the line of “large freehand” writing in late Ming dynasty again in the 50’s and 60’s after World War II.

Li Yuhuan treated brush strokes and pen line form separately as a kind of writing traces, and discussed the relation between brush strokes and blanks in the 70’s. He treated brush strokes and pen line form as an independent language form, although he used a kind of broad brush instead of traditional brush pens.

Zhang Yu gave up brush pens totally, from “bright light” to “finger print” in the 90’s, but he keeps the basic relationship between hand, heart, idea and papers, terminating the ink writing.

They three have experienced language modernism in the inner form and idea of Chinese paintings, that is, they keeps the traditional continuity of inner vein, and at the same time have avoided the image centralism and the imitation of western formalism.

The three artists come from China, Japan and South Korea, but the modernism from the ink painting system in these three countries can be treated as the same art system. From some point of view, they are walking in a special road different from western formalism, abstract expressionism and idealism. It is necessary to discuss and summarize this art phenomenon after the World War II through an exhibition.
