  我还记得第一次看到夏蕙瑛作品时的惊喜。那次是应朋友之邀,去浦东参观一家个人美术馆——蕙风美术馆,内里全都陈列着夏蕙瑛的作品,我的第一印象是,上海居然还有画得这么老到而毫无习气的年轻女画家!

  夏蕙瑛其实是位地地道道的上海画家,她成名很早,早在改革开放之初的10岁时,便已连续获得上海市少年儿童美术大赛、上海市中小学生书法篆刻比赛和全国少年儿童大字比赛三个一等奖,作为当时中国画坛的小神童,上海电视台播出了反映夏蕙瑛成长之路的专题片《在明媚的春光里》。不到15岁,夏蕙瑛就在中国美术馆和上海美术馆举办了书画展。可以说,留给夏蕙瑛的,是极为灿烂的前景,也是容易束缚自己的羁绊。因为在历史上,多少神童被捧杀成“伤仲永”,而神童自己,也绕不过人生平凡日子与社会期望指数之间的巨大鸿沟。要突破“伤仲永”式的羁绊,必须具有过人的悟性和努力。而那天呈现在我面前,就是夏蕙瑛在后来的成长道路上,留下的颗颗汗水、万般顽强,就是夏蕙瑛作品带给我的艺术底蕴与视觉冲击交织而成的大惊喜。

  儿时的夏蕙瑛埋头于博物馆里临摹古画,接受刻板的中国传统书画技巧的训练,正是这种童子功,让她日后能站在巨人的肩头向上攀登艺术高峰。在这段日子里,她得到了刘海粟、颜文樑、李可染、吴作人、李苦禅、关山月、谢稚柳、程十发、陈佩秋、沈柔坚、唐云等大师悉心指导。20岁左右,夏蕙瑛移居改革开放前沿的深圳,在“南风窗”的新鲜艺术空气里,她形成了求新求变的、毫不满足固有成绩的长期艺术追求;而后,在海派艺术的发源地浙江的青山丽水间,夏蕙瑛浸润了灵秀之气,一直到她回到上海,艺术突破,成了夏蕙瑛艺术人生的主旋律。

  在夏蕙瑛的历年作品中,我看到了她每隔一段时间便“丢掉”的一些东西,每隔一段时间后,又拾级而上的足印。夏蕙瑛突破了中国画里山水、花鸟、人物的固有藩篱,将人、物、事置于一幅画面中表现,一下子,她便打开了艺术的疆域,将现代水墨技法同抽象表现形式相融合,在画家肆意舞动的笔墨中,融入她对生活的认识和对时代的感恩的那份真挚的情感,看她的画,你完全会被其内在的文化律动和全新的审美气质所打动。

  这个时候,我才深切体会到画坛前辈对夏蕙瑛的提携和点化的巨大力量。大师的艺术精髓被夏蕙瑛深深地吸取,多年来,夏蕙瑛没有辜负大师们的期望,一路行,一路画,不断突破固有程式,不断超越自己,终于形成了自己的艺术面貌。今天,我们认识了重返上海的夏蕙瑛,我们衷心希望夏蕙瑛能不断给我们新的认识。

  I still remember the happiness and surprise when I first viewed Xia Huiying’s art works displayed in a private art gallery named HuiFeng Art Gallery in Pudong at the invitation of a friend, where it housed Xia’s art creations. I was very impressed by knowing such a young female artist with creative mind and free thinking in Shanghai.

  As a Shanghai-born artist, Xia made her name when she was very young. As early as only 10 years old, she was awarded the 1st prize at Shanghai Children’s Art Competition, Shanghai Primary School Students’& High School Students’ Calligraphy & Seal Making Contest and National Young Children’s Calligraphy Competition respectively. Xia’s early success as a young art prodigy was broadcasted in a feature entitled in the Sparkling Spring Sunlight by Shanghai TV Station and she held her calligraphy and painting exhibition at Shanghai Art Museum and China Art Museum when she was below 15 years old. Young as she was, Xia had promising future but faced numerous barriers as evidenced by many cases of eventual failure of young talents in history. Young prodigies have enormous difficulties balancing common life and huge expectations from society. Therefore, young talents with gift have to overcome obstacles and troubles with super understanding and tremendous efforts themselves. What I saw that day turned out to be the outcomes of Xia’s hard work and unyielding spirit, which left a great impression on me with strong visual impact and rich cultural heritage.

  Engrossed in copying and imitating ancient paintings, Xia received trainings on traditional Chinese calligraphy and painting in childhood, which was very conductive to laying a solid foundation for pursuit of her art career in the future. Xia was tutored by many famed masters such as Liu haisu, Yan wenliang, Li keran, Wu zuoren, Li kuchan, Guan shanyue, Xie zhiliu, Chen shifa, Chen peiqiu, Shen roujian and Tang yun. Xia migrated to Shenzhen, the forefront of China’s reform and opening initiative in her twenties, where she was deep exposed to fresh, innovative and diversified art atmosphere and immersed in spectacular landscape of mountains and rivers of Zhejiang province before she came back to Shanghai afterwards.

  I can see Xia picks up something new and drops something old in her previous works. Xie succeeds in encompassing people, objects and happenings in one picture by freeing herself from the rigid commitment of being truthful to stereotypical Chinese paintings of landscape, flowers, birds and figure portraits. She thus opens a brand new art genre by integrating skills of contemporary ink paintings with abstract and expressive ways where she freely showcases her understanding of life and expresses her gratitude to the great times with her resourceful painting brush. Visitors are sure to be touched and impressed by rich cultural essence and creative aesthetics of these pictures.

  I thus strongly feel the significance of tutoring and encouragement Xia received from many art predecessors, whose efforts inspired Xia to work continuously and earnestly all the time. Xia Huiying has never let the art masters down by combining painting with her life experience, breaking traditional restrictions and creating her distinctive art characteristics on a continuous basis. Today, we get to know Xia Huiying, who is back here to Shanghai and we sincerely hope she will give us new knowledge and surprise.
