禅心•静观

——摄影艺术家游光霖“禅意”摄影展序言

 

中国式知识分子有将知识化为智慧,智慧化为情趣,情趣化为艺术的雅好。

厅堂中常有梅兰竹菊四条屏,或春夏秋冬四景图,以图言志,以画述情。而书房中难以图说的“宁静致远”,如今,又被摄影艺术家游光霖幻化为如此静谧的影像,一花一草,一抹阳光,一块墙皮,通过独特的视角,别致的构图,将物象化为心境,使心境平和、淡定。放松心情,浮想联翩,如孔明当年:“夫君子之行:静以修身,俭以养德。非淡泊无以明志,非宁静无以致远。”(出自诸葛亮《戒子篇》)

物象的单纯,情景的通透。没有纪实摄影的故事,却意味深长;没用沙龙摄影的甜美,却一样的优雅高贵;像摆拍一样的精致,又像抓拍一样的生动,别具匠心,却不着痕迹。那是因为作品营造了清新澄澈,洗涤心灵的“禅意”。宁静生发禅意,身边之景,满眼看去皆可驰目骋怀,一角一隅,细细品味又气象万千。“淡泊明志,闲看庭外花开花落;宁静致远,眺望天外云卷云舒”。

宁静而非枯寂,更非死沉,蕴涵着生机与活力。生的镜像,通过游光霖的摄影转化为一种比喻,一种拟人,如佛学的《百喻经》。在随波荡漾的垃圾中,看的是“生、旦、净、末、丑”,朝雾褪尽,一层阳光,林中的树干在相片中化作“处子”的身躯……“幻象”化为“影像”,又无处不在。僧问云门:“如何是佛?”门云:“乾屎橛”,又不可作“道”理会,如庄子所谓“道在屎溺,道在稊稗,道在瓦砾……”,临济说禅:“附物显理。不得道处处真,尘尘尽是本来人”。凡圣一如,皆心直口快,语妙双关。看游光霖的摄影自有痛快幽默之处。

   生命无常,世态炎凉,在游光霖的摄影中都化为满心的欢喜,如“拈花微笑”。 游光霖作品将“宁静致远”做达观状,清静圆满的心态,是画面极致的美,丰富而不复杂,单纯而不简单,呈飘逸状,有流动感,气息滋润细腻。

观摄影家游光霖的作品,会有一偈:“青山不管人间事,绿水何曾说是非”。作为福建美术馆一馆之长的游光霖,意在用摄影告诉观众:“生活原本是美的”。

静下心来再细细品读,细细品读定会静下心来。

Meditative mind & calm seeing:

——A preface to the photographic artist You Guanglin's photography exhibition of "meditation"

 

Chinese intellectuals have interesting on turning knowledge into wisdom, turning wisdom into delight, and turning delight into art.

Usually, there are four screens picture of plum、orchid、bamboo and chrysanthemum, or four seasons picture of  spring、summer、autumn and winter in the hall, in order to express ambition and interest. Today, "Keep calm and you'll be wisdom" which hard to picture is described by artists You Guanglin's photographic images; A flower、 a piece of grass、a beam of sunlight and a wall through the unique perspective and unique composition,turn image into mind,make peace of mind and calm down heart. Relax and fall into reverie such as Kongming said: "gentleman’s behavior: developed culture by rest state, increased character by thrifty, non-indifferent not insist oneself dream-free, without serenity not go far. "

This is simple images and transparent scene. There is no story of documentary photography, but meaningful; useless salon photography sweet, but elegant noble; exquisite like a pendulum, vivid like a capture; brilliantly conceived, but leave no trace; because those works are creating "meditative mind "of fresh and actions, and washing the heart. Serenity comes up meditative mind, look at the side-view which full relaxation of thoughts and feelings, and savor a corner with which a diversity of interests. Live in rest state such as looking busy flower fell out of court; thrifty situation such as looking clouds cirrus in the sky.

Calm is not meaning bored and lonely, not meaning very heavy, but containing the vigor and vitality. Mirrors of live change into a metaphor and a humanoid by You Guanglin's photographic images, just like speaks for the hundreds of Buddhist Sutra. Artist saw the image of actresses and actors of Chinese Opera in the pond, and saw a image of female body when the sun shines on a tree trunk of the woods in the early morning. Illusion and transformation of images can be seen everywhere. A monk asked Yunmeng: "what is Buddhism", Yunmeng replied: "manure", and not as "Word" to understand. Zhuang Zhou said: "Word in the manure, Word in seed, Word in the brick and tile", Lingji explaining meditation: "Word displayed by things, and in no sense instead of showing real, see the true face of people in small things", ordinary people and saints are the same in very frank of speaking with words of wisdom.

Life is impermanent, and the world is fickleness, as filled with joy in You Guanglin's photography, such as the "eternal smile of Buddha". You Guanglin depicted " Keep calm and you'll be wisdom" by photographs. Those pictures are perfect beauty, rich and complex, pure and simple, elegant shape, have a sense of movement, breath moist and delicate.
 
Appreciate those photography works of You Guanglin, as a chant said: " Green Mountain does not care about things of the world, green water does not distinguish right and wrong ". As a curator of the art museum of Fujian province, You Guanglin is intended to tell the audience by means of photography: "Life is beautiful".

Settled down to carefully read, carefully read would be calm.
