万物有灵且美

By 沈奇岚

进入一朵花蕊,成为一片白云,做一只汤圆。

艺术家刘毅以独特的视角和笔触进入万物的世界,一个当代的灵性世界。

如保罗·艾吕雅的诗歌所说:“有另一个世界,但它就在这个世界中。”

万物皆有光辉,刘毅画下的并非事物的样貌,而是记取那一瞬间内心的感受,那是事物在我们的内心振动出的光辉。

让人惊奇的是刘毅让自己保持惊奇的能力,他总能看见,总能感动。他聚拢并加深心灵的注意力,敏锐地进入事物的内部。这些作品是心智感受与视觉形象在心灵中碰撞成型的那一瞬。

创造依赖的是心灵,而非创作的媒介。刘毅发现的是事物本身蕴含的奥秘,活泼热烈的外部世界、沉静深邃的内心世界。他所描绘的世界,也让我们的注意力发生新的运动和聚焦,让未曾注意的事物重新被关注,重新打开我们习以为常的事物。

他的作品提供了一种信心,当我们随着无法预知的命运航行时,依然有万物伴随。花朵、蔬食、远山、白云、落日、小鸟……无论是汤圆还是太阳,都可以略大于整个宇宙,广阔而自由。

万物都曾走向我,流经过我,渐渐成为了我。

 

Bright and Beautiful
By Dr.SHEN Qilan

Enter a flower stamen, become a white cloud, and be a dumpling.

Artist Liu Yi enters the world of ten thousand things with a unique perspective and brushstroke, a contemporary world of spirituality.

As Paul Éluard’s poem says, “There is another world, and it is in this one.”

There is light in all things, what Liu Yi paints is not the appearance of things, but the feeling and memory of the moment, which the glow of things is vibrating inside of us.

What is amazing is Liu Yi’s ability to keep himself amazed, he can always see and always be moved. He gathers and deepens the mind’s attention, acutely entering the inside world of things. These works are the moments when mental feelings and visual images collide in the mind to take shape.

Creation relies on the mind, not the medium of creation. What Liu Yi discovers is the mystery contained in things themselves, the lively and passionate outside world and the quiet and profound another one. The world he portrays also allows a new movement and focus of our attention, bringing the unnoticed back into focus and reopening the things we take for granted.

His works offer a confidence that as we sail along with our unpredictable destiny, we are still accompanied by all bright and beautiful things. Flowers, vegetables, giant mountains, white and soft clouds, sunsets, birds…… Both the dumplings and the sun can be slightly larger than the entire universe, vast and free.

All things have walked toward me, flowed through me,  and gradually become me.
