Chief editor of "commemorate Zhuangzi's birthday 2377 Years of Chinese painting and calligraphy masters invitational exhibition collection - Leisure tour", "Xu Zisi color plastic art collection".
Zhuang Mingzheng mainly focuses on figures, mainly on realistic subjects, and his outstanding achievement is his portraits. It is longer than the large-scale large-scale production, the pen is vigorous, the ink is heavy, the clothes are more stick strokes, but the face, hands and other characters are portrayed in detail, the painting method is very distinctive. In recent years, the theme has gradually expanded, the style of writing has also changed, the language is more rich and colorful, increasingly mature and strong. As a military painter, his subjects mainly focus on military life and enjoy a good reputation. He has made statues of MAO Zedong, Soong Ching Ling, Li Xiannian, Deng Xiaoping, Hu Jintao, Chen Yun, Zhang Wannian, Wu Yi and other party and state leaders. Also painted ji Xianlin, Mou Shanchu, Lu Shibi, Huang Xuhua, Li Duo, Mo Yan and other famous figures in the field of culture and science and technology portraits, not only like, and are painted in high spirits, for the painting or their relatives highly respected. At the national level artists, guizhou, guizhou calligrapher's association, vice President of literature and art association, the chairman of BaoJunYi praise, said: "in the traditional Chinese painting figure painting exquisite xingshenjianbei, character modelling, I think is the most difficult, so I just bold positive help me draw a portrait of Mr Request, he is very generous, enthusiastically agreed. Immediately, I sat in the studio as a model, about half an hour less than a portrait of me out, portrait lifelike, both shape and spirit, painting than I have spirit. This is a strong character modeling basic skills of a kind of performance, it makes me look after the people become energetic, energetic."
Zhuang mingzheng's figure paintings have rich and profound connotations, which not only record the historical features, but also reflect the spirit of The Times. His figure paintings should be attributed to the emphasis on realism. The figures on the screen and the outline of objects are vividly and accurately described in his pen, and they have both the shape and the spirit, emphasizing the shape without losing the spirit. His painting art generally benefits from two aspects. One is the advanced study in the PLA Art Academy, which makes him shift from the individual and random creation path to the formal and rigorous academic creation mode. Second, in the special environment of the army, I accumulated a large number of fresh materials and life experiences, gained a lot of feelings, and deepened the accumulation of creation. Based on this, his solid skills and the ability to capture the modeling of figure painting have been incisively and vividly played. His monograph "Beauty in cultivation -- Zhuang Mingzheng figure Painting Collection" was published by Tianjin People's Fine Arts Publishing House. This book focuses on the selection of the figure painting works of Zhuang Mingzheng, director of the Chinese Artists Association, and the collection of the book fully shows the rich achievements of the author's artistic creation, and adds a thick and heavy color to the development of China's literature and art career in the new era.
In addition to the creation of thematic figures, Zhuang mingzheng also has considerable achievements in the field of flower and bird painting. He mainly learned from Wu Changshuo, Pan Tianshou, etc., but he did not blindly abide by the rules, but carried out bold and orderly exploration and innovation by relying on his own life experience and artistic experience. He attached importance to the thought and interest and artistic conception of the creation of flower and bird painting, and harmonized the static and harmonious beauty of exquisite meaning in the empty freehand brushwork ink and the stirring brush and ink. The painter will use the combination of gorgeous and quietly elegant flower and bird painting, gorgeous place thick ink and heavy color large rendering, quietly elegant place such as water lotus splash ink such as water, the so-called mountain is wonderful, water is wonderful in the wind waves, flowers are wonderful is bright light phase, the bird is wonderful is moving vivid. Zhuang Mingzheng gets the gist deeply, always linfeng knot thinks, creates the intension that strives for novelty quietly and effect. "The heartstrings move where the painting melts into poetry", he always pursues the simple and carefree style with the wind in art, and puts it into creation practice, through the paper back, is his sincere craftsmanship.
Zhuang Mingzheng is also good at calligraphy, especially in grass. At the same time, he has a deep thinking about the theory of Chinese painting. His new work, Writing God with Form and Advancing with The Times: The Real Realistic Expression Technique, truly expresses his thoughts and pursuit of Chinese painting. The thoughts of understanding, calm, firmness and rejection of partiality displayed in the article are mutually outside and inside with the pursuit of creation.
Strive for new horizons
Xi jinping, general secretary of literature and art symposium profoundly pointed out: "we have to produce good works as a central part of the literary work, efforts to create more values in contemporary China, embodies the spirit of the Chinese culture, reflects the Chinese aesthetic pursuit, ideological content, artistic, ornamental organic unity of outstanding works." The formation of self-style and the development of creative consciousness are the artist's life. Although this is an extremely difficult thing, but Zhuang Ming is always persevering. In the later creation, he will step up some efforts in a planned way, focusing on the creation of figure painting, and strive to be more accurate and delicate, vivid, expand the mind, broaden the field of vision; New breakthroughs have been made. As for flower-and-bird painting, he also gradually made some adjustments, especially in the picture of the big composition, the big pattern, further strengthen the excavation of classical works, appropriate to accommodate the successful painting methods of contemporary flower and bird painting masters, through more difficult suffering, make flower-and-bird painting more magnificent, more attractive. This is his ideal realm, but also his struggle for the practice of the road.
"Ask canal that get so clear, for a source of living water." On the road of artistic exploration, Zhuang Ming is persevering, pioneering and innovative, and constantly breaking through himself. Du Dakai, professor and doctoral supervisor of Academy of Fine Arts of Tsinghua University, director of Calligraphy Research Institute of Academy of Fine Arts of Tsinghua University, praised him: "I often feel warm for having such a fellow townman in Beijing. Mingzheng is very diligent. He will have a more leisurely life and he will paint better." As a real artist, Zhuang Ming will continue to boldly explore the themes and methods of creation, and record The Times with more refreshing works to contribute to the people.
