Following the calligraphy and painting exhibition in the summer of 2020, after a year of dedicated work, artist Jiangang Su created Twenty-Four Solar Terms Seals and related paintings and calligraphy works.

The rich and diverse shapes of the engraved stone seals, fonts and colour, the delicate and elegant writing of the fine zhuwen (characters on a seal carved in relief), and baiwen (intagliated characters on a seal) have beautiful meanings integrated into the fineness and subtlety the stone seals. It can be said that the world can be seen within square inches, and the subtleties have the universe.

The carefully created collection of twenty-four solar terms seals, together with the stamped prints, and four-season-themed painting and calligraphy works totaling more than forty pieces, are presented by Lipont Gallery and YKLM Auctions to the audience. The exhibition and online auction will start on the day of the lixia solar term on May 5th. Everyone is welcome to make an appointment to visit.

“The theme of the exhibition is Changle Weiyang (长乐未央). It comes from Jin Shi Suo Han Changle Palace Tile (《金石索·汉长乐宫瓦》), which means everlasting happiness. It is exactly what I want to express to everyone through my work. While we are going through the pandemic, various changes are making us unable to release stress and emotions. I hope people can see the beauty in my works and feel a sense of relaxation. Any difficulties will pass in the cycle of time and four seasons.” – Jiangang Su 2021

“这次作品展主题是《长乐未央》,出自《金石索·汉长乐宫瓦》,为快乐长久永续不绝之意。也正是我在作品中想表达给大家的。我们正值疫情时期,各种改变会让人产生压力,情绪无从释放。我希望观众在我的作品中看到美好并放松心情。任何困难在时间和四季的轮迴中都将过去。”

– 苏健刚 2021

 

中国篆刻艺术被联合国教科文组织列为非物质文化遗产。中国篆刻艺术是中国美术的基石。印章最初被用作权威的签名或标志,后来被所有社会阶层以及亚洲大部分地区使用。中国浙江省西泠印社成立于一个世纪以前,它与大约一百家其他专门机构一起保护和发展篆刻艺术。作者首先将设计草图绘制在纸上,然后用小刀刻在石头上。除了熟练掌握传统书法外,篆刻艺术还需要高度的技巧,因为石材面积很小,每条线的粗细都很重要。篆刻艺术的图案也是艺术家的想象力和文化的结晶。作为书画的工具,印章本身就是一件艺术品。它表达了整个文化关于人类与自然的观念。如今,公章和私人信件中继续使用印章。即使那些了解复杂字符的人越来越少,但专业人员和业余爱好者仍在实践印章雕刻的艺术。
