悠然見南山 — 林彥甫油畫個展

 

            本次展出一系列田園相關的風景油畫。田野不僅只是呈現出農村的樣貌,更在中國人文傳統中有著重要的象徵意含;田園意象的濫觴源自陶淵明,淵明辭官歸隱,躬耕園田之中,但這並非職業的選擇,而是生命價值的取捨,離開混沌的官場,重拾真純的道德價值。田野遠離了世俗、宦途的氛圍,但也並非如山林純然的孤立,而是一個需要勞動躬耕的人境生活,淵明透過詩文建立起人與人、人與自然更加動人的連結,而這樣崇高的精神與深刻的情感,讓後世的王維、稼軒等詩人不斷追隨,形塑出田園在中國人文的獨特意象。
            歸返自然的墨客,放下汲汲營營的功名,依繫著便是老莊的思想;在田野之中,放下過度強烈的自我與世俗的追求,回到樸實的真我。道家務於致虛守靜,屏除內心的慾望與雜念,返歸單純淳樸,在寬廣遼遠的園田山景之中,體會天人的冥合,而如此的老莊也就在儒家之外,深遠地影響著中華文化。
           中華文化承襲的文學傳統及哲理思想,影響著我們看待事物的角度;透過更豐富的固有意象與思想,或能觸動我們對自然景物更深刻的感動,也或許能在這片台灣的田地中,找到更多的感受。

Serenely Seeing the Southern Mountains                                                                                                                                                 - Lin Yen-fu Solo Exhibition

    Farmland scenery, the topic of this exhibition, has a great significance in Chinese literary traditions instead of a simple depiction of the country neighborhoods or manor estates. To begin with, this tradition derives from the Chinese poet, Tao Yuanming, who dropped out of the government and started up a farming life in his early career. However, it was not the matter of picking proper jobs, but the consideration of reserving the fundamental moral integrity so he determined to retreat to a simple, but valuable life. Thereafter, Tao Yuanming, departing from the major society, but not totally secluded, established great relationships with nature and locals through his poems. The lofty spirit and the earnest sentiments in his lively poems made Wang Wei, Xin Qiji and many more other poets follow in his footsteps. Thus, Farmland retreat became a great image in Chinese culture.

    The ideal of returning to simplicity and reality was the major concern by those elites who immerse themselves in the pastoral scene after they withdraw from the government. To fulfill the utmost pattern of behavior, they tried to abandon all the self-importance and self-interest; and all the secular pursuits and fame. In addition, with following the Taology, which emphasizes on remaining inner mind in silence and clarity, they sought for the harmony between human and the universe while immersing in nature. As a result, the philosophy of Tao plays an important role in Chinese culture and provides a different way of viewing the scenery.

    Now that Chinese literature and Chinese philosophy have provided us abundant images and thoughts, our sentiments can go even further on what we perceive. That is to say, with the various representations and philosophical thoughts, country landscape can touch us profoundly in a very different way. All in all, I wish my works, the paintings of Taiwan’s farmland scenery can bring you a lot more feelings.
