Chinese Buddha paintings awes American audience
By Fu Bo ( chinadaily.com.cn )
Updated: 2011-07-18

A Chinese artist has opened an exhibition of Buddha paintings in Manhanttan, stealing the attention of many American art lovers.

Liu Jianxia's exhibition opened at DIB Gallery on July 7, 2011. More than 500 people paid to meet her on the opening day.

Liu’s works have been described as inspiring and touching. Chris Phelan, the supervisor who is in charge of special events in Rubin Museum of Art, regards Liu’s works as one of the best modern Buddha painting he has ever seen.

"Entering the gallery, a blast of strength hits me,"said one American visitor. Liu's paintings have also been well received by journalists and artists. As a result of her success, Liu was honored with an "Outstanding Achievement Award" by Li Chengju, the chairman of the United Nations Artists Association, and Yao Jicheng, the chairman of Global Artist Alliance.

Liu says it's her obsession for Buddha that driven her to this point. "I have been interested in Buddha since I was graduated in 1993, because I believe in Buddhism. I painted my first Buddha in 1998. Ever since then, I can barely let it go. I have been to many sacred Buddha sites to study the art and culture of Buddha," Liu told a journalist.

Chairman of the United Nations Artists Association Li Chengju told an audience that Liu painted from her heart. "Her works were spiritual and intelligent," he said.

The exhibition runs through until September the 3rd.

汝州籍华裔画家刘剑霞当代佛画征服西方观众

[提要] 当天,参观的观众源源不断,来自美国收藏界、博物馆、美国媒体及艺术家们都对刘剑霞的作品赞不绝口,不少观众对她的作品竖起大拇指。来自鲁宾艺术博物馆(RubinMuseumofArt)的特殊活动主管ChrisPhelan说:这是他见过的最优秀的当代佛画,画面使人感动,并深受启发。

 
中国著名油画家刘剑霞当代佛画展当地时间7日在美国纽约曼哈顿DIB画廊开幕,作品以其深邃的内涵,精湛独特的艺术手法震撼了在场的每一位观众及同行,这位年轻的华裔女画家用她对佛教“心经”的理解,将感悟诠释在画面上,运用中西合璧的艺术手法彻底征服了西方观众。

  当天,参观的观众源源不断,来自美国收藏界、博物馆、美国媒体及艺术家们都对刘剑霞的作品赞不绝口,不少观众对她的作品竖起大拇指。联合国美术家协会主席李成举,以及全球艺术家联盟主席姚继成对于刘剑霞的作品及艺术贡献给与充分肯定及赞扬,并在现场特别为刘剑霞颁发了艺术杰出成就奖。

  来自鲁宾艺术博物馆(RubinMuseumofArt)的特殊活动主管ChrisPhelam说:这是他见过的最优秀的当代佛画,画面使人感动,并深受启发。

  刘剑霞是河南省汝州市人。她表示,从93年油画专业毕业后一直对佛教题材感兴趣,这种兴趣也根植于她的信仰。这次的绘画手法运用了西方绘画的点线面,也融合了中国敦煌的色彩,在一些作品背景里甚至可以看到曼哈顿的街景。一位美国观众在现场说:“我一进来就感觉到一股强大的能量,气场很棒!”

  联合国美术家协会主席李成举现场致词时指出:“在西方很少看到华裔画家画出如此优秀的佛教题材的绘画,我深感震惊,佛教与基督教一样,都是宣扬大爱和慈悲,刘剑霞的作品是从心灵出发而做的,充满着灵性和智慧,联合国美术家协会特别为她颁发艺术杰出成就奖,鼓励她继续努力,为大家奉献更多的艺术作品!”

  刘剑霞在今日接受笔者采访时说:“从1998年开始画第一张佛像,后来再也放不下画笔。我去了很多地方学习和研究佛教艺术和文化,敦煌,西藏,麦积山,龙门,韩国佛教寺院,美国佛光山等,十几年来持续研究传统壁画和当代艺术表现手法,希望中西合璧,找到最恰当的表现方式,与西方观众分享佛教文化与艺术。本次画展,是我对佛教经典《心经》的一些感悟,我常常在读心经的时候感觉灵感在显现,身心非常愉悦,感觉有一种智慧的力量在加持我…金刚经也是我爱读的一部经,这次画作有一幅跟金刚经有关。”

  “我们每个人都有佛性,只是渐渐被红尘所遮盖,心灵渐渐被贪、嗔、痴三毒控制,离佛境越来越远,离地狱越来越近了。当我们放下烦恼执着,清静心显现,那时,代表佛性的莲花就会生起来,其实她一直都在,我们只是迷失而寻她不见。在繁忙的生活里,车来车往的曼哈顿,让我们的心灵在当下清静片刻,放下万千的思绪,进入一种寂静,那就是智慧,是般若。”刘剑霞和笔者分享着创作的体会。

  据悉,画展当天有500多名观众到现场参观,画展将于当地时间9月3日结束。(河南省汝州市委宣传部新闻科桂焱炜)http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/dfpd/henan/2011-07-12/content_3165453.html
