Abstract:

This interdisciplinary study promotes the thesis that some contemporary Chinese ink artists succeed in using principles of traditional Chinese aesthetics to convey the union of self with nature, others and the universe. The investigation is a case study of the writings and paintings of Jizi, an ink-wash artist in Beijing, who combines images of icy mountains, Tibetan landscapes, cosmic vistas, and enclosures of personal existence. Jiziℓ́ℓs success in expressing the unification of these dimensions is confirmed by developing and applying an interpretation of Jing Haoℓ́ℓs classic description of the authentic image, which resonates with the vitality of nature. To find words for resonance with visible nature, the inquiry extends to such writers as Li Zehou, Arthur Danto and Maurice Merleau-Ponty.℗ℓ In short, an account of authenticity in Chinese ink painting is offered experimentally as a means for assessing whether contemporary Chinese artworks are expressive of Chinese philosophy and culture.℗ℓ The text includes stylistic comparisons with artists. The result is an appreciation of the healing influence of Chinese ink art in a global culture that is vibrant, complex, diverse and affirming of the present. ℗ℓ In this rigorous, far-reaching, and original analysis of contemporary ink art painting, Brubaker and Wang focus our attention ℗ℓon the work of one independent painter, Jizi, whose work exemplifies an uncanny marriage between ink art and contemporary concerns. . In the central chapters, Brubaker persuasively argues that in this work Jizi captures principles essential to traditional Chinese aestheticsℓ́ℓarticulated in terms of wholeness, emptiness, and visibility--that enable the works to express the unification of the self with nature and the universe as a whole. It does this through forms that are innovative and part of artistic practices and discourses that are becoming increasingly global. Mary Wiseman, The City University of New York ℗ℓ This important publication focuses on the evocative ink wash paintings of an artist who has, over the course of decades, demonstrated an unwavering commitment to exploring the technical, formal, philosophical and experiential dimensions of his chosen medium. The essays, commentaries and critical reflections collected in this volume present unique perspectives on Jizi's practice, significantly contributing to the growing body of scholarship on the continuing vitality of the ink wash tradition in the global contemporary. Dr. Wenny Teo, The Courtauld Institute of Art ℗ℓ Through℗ℓan in-depth study of the℗ℓink painting℗ℓpractice of℗ℓcontemporary Chinese℗ℓartist℗ℓJizi,℗ℓthe authors℗ℓdiscover℗ℓChinese ink paintingℓ́ℓs philosophical perspectives,℗ℓcosmic℗ℓfoundations, and contemporary℗ℓpossibilities. They also uncovered℗ℓa way to℗ℓenter into the artistℓ́ℓs rich and profound spiritual world;℗ℓthrough℗ℓJiziℓ́ℓs℗ℓexpansive visual patterning and refined spiritual imagery, he℗ℓactivates℗ℓa℗ℓlong and great cultural℗ℓtradition.
