Yeong Ning¡¯s paintings depict the artist¡¯s visual renderings of his personal thoughts and feelings concerning the inner spirit of nature and being. In 2007-2008, while attending the Fine Art College at the Shanghai University, as a young prodigy painter, Ning at his Shanghai studio created over 500 large sizes of paintings (180cmx97cm). His innermost feelings and thoughts flow spontaneously and freely with spurting calligraphy ink on rice paper. These processes indicate the unconventional working habits that were tuned to the creation of a new stylistic form. The work has a mystical quality that resonate the artist¡¯s embedded spiritual truth. 

Yeong Ning studied at the Fine Art College at Shanghai University for 5 years and graduated a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2010. Born in Penang, he and his Latvian wife now reside in his home cum studio at the foothill of Bukit Mertajam, Penang. Alongside his passion in painting and traveling, Ning is also a freelance composer for digital music. He is the original creator for 3D human model digital generation system.  

In contrast to Yeong Ning¡¯s stylistic form that reflects both the spirituality and emotional content, Grace Lim explores the beauty embodied in nature and transforms her dream and desire of life into a resolute style of work. The show also includes a selection of Grace¡¯s oil that exhibit strength in the use of rhythmic movement and minimal imagery that are rich in emotion.

Spreading the Wings
Oil on canvas   24inx 30in

Grace Lim graduated from the University of Bedfordshire in England. She traveled all over Europe and lived in France and Italy for short periods of time. Grace now lives and works in her over an acre home studio in Portland, Oregon. With a creek flows across her backyard, graceful pines stood on the hillsides, hackberry, fungi and wild vegetation bursting in abundance, Grace composes poetry which lauds the varying landscapes found in nature and creates stunning art works intermingle the evolving dreamscape with the evolution of time and space.

Grace explores into the unknown future with her art and she uses the western oil paint and Chinese calligraphy ink to create the complementary effect of these occurrences. The paintings are the result of these two competing elements. Grace¡¯s arts reveal that any state of oversaturated condition or emotional turbulence can become organized and balanced. The calm and meditative qualities demonstrate from all her art works that depict the combination of the abstract and sublime beauty of life.

艺梵画廊很荣幸呈献杨聍(马来西亚)和林月慧(美国)的双个展. 这是一场有意义的艺术对话。 杨聍以奔放泼墨方式 诠释¡°道之梦¡±,而林月慧的激情澎湃的油画是她儿时之梦的回响 画家通过绘画手法和过程自拓诠释各自的艺术理念和哲思,突现21世纪新一代画家的自我意识和他们对艺术,传统和文化的冲突的反思。


杨聍的画作是他个人对自然和人的内在精神的反省。 20072008年间,他在上海的工作室以中国水墨和宣纸,创作了500多幅大型画作(180cmx97cm)。他画画的时候全神贯注,心无旁骛, 只是因为他需要画画。他惯于把非
传统的绘画方式调整成为新的艺术形式,而他的画于人神秘深的精神性内涵,反映画家内心对生命和人文的感悟。

¡¡

杨聍曾经在上海大学美术学院进修5年,2010年毕业,考获美术学士学位。他的兴趣是当旅游画家,他又是一个电子音乐业余制作人和人体三维模型自动生成软件的原创者。

槟城出生的他, 目前和他的拉脱维亚籍的妻子居住在大山脚, 他的家也是他的工作室。

相对于杨聍对自然和人的内在精神的反省画风,林月慧的作品从探索与深入的体验大自然的美和超然力量中,她结合了把对生命的感动、激情和纯净的梦想转换成果断独一的画风。双个展中还展示了月慧的具有韵律和丰富情感力量的作品系列。

¡¡

林月慧毕业于英国贝佛塞尔大学。她曾游遍了欧洲,也短住在法国和意大利。她现在定居美国的波特兰,俄勒冈州。她的工作室立于优雅的绿松林和小河间,野生蘑菇和茂生的桃果萦绕四环。月慧经常被包蕴着生命的一颗种子、一印苔藓、一漂雪霜、雨滴感动。她把纯属个人化诗歌创作和令人惊叹的艺术作品混合,充分的显露出梦与时空的演变与进化感。

 

她以西方油画颜料和中国书法油墨相互来创作。画中展现出中西贯通的组合和情感湍流状态,更多的是表现出了一种艺术家对繁杂和混乱的局面的掌握力,从创作中寻获循序和平衡。平静、深沉的崇高生命素质在月慧的作品中展现无遗。
