Master Hong Yi – 弘一大师

Master Hong Yi – 弘一大师

弘一大师 绘制弘一大师这套作品是缘于以前的一件作品词帝李煜,初闻这个消息有些紧张。主要我对弘一大师的生平事迹知之甚少,对他的印象就是一首经典的送别和慈祥又带有些许悲悯的面容。所以这套作品准备了不少时间,从关于大师的书籍和(一轮明月)这部电影以及相关的信息,都一一仔细揣摩。从茫茫然不知所措到逐渐的有了一些眉目,大师的一生经历颇多,从童年到暮年仿佛是绚丽多姿到平静淡然。法师出家之前在美术,音乐,文学,书法,篆刻等诸多领域已取得相当的成就,话剧更有开创性的贡献。入佛之后所表现出来的人格魅力又为世人所敬仰,唯一没有放下的书法更是达到极致,让人们从中体会到了佛学的力量。 描绘法师童年是从金刚经里如梦如幻得到启发,亦是法师常常书写的几个字,我想法师对这几个字不是一般的理解了,所以从法师童年便对佛理有一定悟性直至最后出家皈依佛门应该不无道理……当然也是我个人拙见望观者海涵。青年时期我则选的英姿勃发风流倜傥的形象,据史料记载当时的李叔同多才多艺,无论文学造诣,书法篆刻都达到了相当高的成就,不单单是在上海与许幻园等等并称为"天涯五友"还常常去京剧客串,登台唱过黄天霸,白水滩等剧目。后来在日本留学期间不但学习西方油画和现代音乐,并且开创性的把话剧带到国内便不足为奇了,当然我也把李叔同在日本留学时期的爱情画了进去,相信是他五彩人生里不可或缺的一抹颜色。回国后他最令人瞩目的是投身教育事业,在杭州和南京讲授音乐与图画课,第一次把人体模特带上课堂便引起轰动,漫画家丰子恺音乐家刘质平都是在他的得意门生,还帮丰子恺完成护生画集。画到李叔同毅然决然的选择出家,我把整体画面控制在较凄凉无奈中,记得书中和影视作品中有这么种场景,李叔同出家时日本的妻子来找他劝他还俗,最后问他爱是什么?他说,爱,是慈悲!真也好臆造也罢,至少这是我愿意承认的。因为,李叔同还要成为弘一法师呢,法师入佛门后尽心竭力弘扬佛法,念佛不忘救国,认真研习律宗的精髓,各地云游造访名僧,宣讲律宗以戒为师。画到悲欣交集依旧离不开大家所熟悉的法师那满含悲悯的笑容,最后,以经常被人传唱的送别画面收尾,空旷的画面烘托出来的是我对于珍惜各种情感的最后总结,这几件作品的名字都是取自法师所书写过的文字,如梦如幻,勇猛精进,游艺,美育,放下,戒定慧,悲欣交集,相信对法师生平稍稍熟悉的便能明白个中滋味吧。 我知道自己用内画鼻烟壶连环画的形式连法师的生平事迹的十分之一也未表达完善,但是缘于这次创作,无论通过研读关于法师事迹,还是体会法师艺术的发展道路,都无形之中提高自身做人和艺术价值的层次,让人受益匪浅。 卢军华 The opportunity to design and paint a set of inner painted bottles on Master Hong Yi life strories 弘一大师 came from a bottle that I had sold previously, a bottle that depicted the sorrowness of Tang Dynasty last emperor, Emperor Li Yi, after he has lost the country.
