Speaker: Xie Yousu

Born and based in Suzhou, Mr. Xie Yousu distinguishes himself as an artist specializing in painting lives of ordinary people in old Suzhou. For him, seemingly ordinary and trivial activities in life best serve as ideal subjects of fine arts. The poignancy and humor with which he paints his people carrying on with their lives – whether as recreation or profession – are nothing short of memorable.

At his lecture, Mr. Xie will present some of his most fascinating paintings and share with the attendees how he created these precious works.

江南憶舊–謝友蘇的市井人物畫

星期六, 6月4日,下午2:00PM-4:00PM
特邀中國著名市井人物畫家: 謝友蘇先生
講座免費
地点: 40 Rector Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10006

華美人文學會於6月4日(週六)特邀中國著名市井人物畫家謝友蘇先生作《江南憶舊–謝友蘇的市井人物畫》專題講座,畫家以自身在江南市井生活的體驗,講述提煉和再現人物形象、描繪市井風情所採用的藝術手法和創作歷程。

謝友蘇,出生於江蘇省蘇州市,中國美術家協會會員,江蘇省江海書畫會理事,蘇州《友蘇美術館》館長。謝友蘇的風景畫充滿邊寨山水的滄桑感、江南水巷的古樸感。近年來,他把繪畫的精力投向了市井人物畫的創作,他的人物畫恬淡、向善、幽默而又充滿生活情趣和人生況味,形成了自己獨特的藝術風格。以寫實而適度誇張的手法,記錄了一個正在遺失的純真年代,一個值得慢慢品味和懷念的時代。

畫家謝友蘇描繪的江南市井生活是豐富多彩的,人物情態是生動活潑的。他的靈感擷取自日常生活中的戲劇性的畫面,而後凝練地加以展現,形成一幅完整的故事。他的作品能夠感動任何層次的讀者,引起他們的共鳴。若細細品味,有時讓你感慨萬分,有時又讓你啞然失笑。這是一種理想的市井生活,也是一份濃厚文化的傳承。友蘇擅長編排場景,言外之情,常令人莞爾。他筆下的人物善良、敦厚、幽默而又充滿生活情趣,充滿人性之美。
