王濛莎小传

王濛莎,80后妹子,江苏无锡人,居太湖畔,江南草圣大濛之女。闺居之所,外有私家园林,内有收藏无数。日日熏习赏玩,得江南温婉滋养秀润之气。自幼喜涂鸦,所居室内围墙,无一不被反复涂抹,大濛爱而护之,不碍其天性。二九之后,不肯承袭家学,不顾父母反对,远赴西安美院学动画专业,喜日式动漫,毕业创作亦以此为方向。受霍去病墓雕塑所感,悟得线性体魄,得西北黄沙苍凉意,假期返家,开始以笔墨画《山海经》长卷,初现灵光,却随手送人,未以画为业。后独去澳洲和英国留学,一路遇奇人异事颇多,识得西方灵魄鬼魅之说,新老各门宗教之事,奇癖怪异个体之人。自远离故土,始知国画水墨之妙,频频生发创作。零八年始回国,推却家父安排的任何工作,独喜修仙打坐,水墨涂鸦,与儿时别无二异,却得家中往来宾客所赏识,自此,展览邀约频繁,名声鹊起。

濛莎今日之创作,既全盘来自生活经历的种种。所学、所看、所思、所想,全尽收于画中。电影学历使她建构了一个庞大芜杂的虚拟世界体系,内有天外飞仙,如意郎君,四季春花,宛若桃源仙境,引人入胜。她的动画学历使她保持单纯幼稚的外形,兼有俏皮诡异之趣,又或参杂淡淡忧伤,些许暗黑,却在清快明丽的造型之下,皆为赏心悦目之笔。家之雕工瓷器收藏,古人造型之精妙绝伦,亦兼收并蓄,得其情魄,品其意韵,纳入画中。欧陆的当代艺术教育,使其天马行空,每笔皆由己出,用色绚烂璀璨,天性挥洒,张扬纸上。修仙打坐使她对空间的理解与他人迥然相异,远近大小,皆出己心,空间忽大忽小,忽远忽近,上下错综,盘桓叠压。自言打坐时,能听千米外之事,虽远如近。

是尔,以濛莎之笔,能收能放,放可恣意天真,细可纤发毕现,非异人不可以为之。东西方传统渊源,皆可在其中寻到,略有文化体脉相近似之感,传承不可不谓之深厚,既可进传统之深广,亦可做透网麟,出一己之风貌,一笔一画皆出己意。是谓,东西方传统是以难得,而见己之性情更加难得,其性情率朴温厚,天真浪漫,美之若斯者,则举世难遇。今此三者,尽展现于画上,一幅三得是也。

Wang Mengsha (b. 1980s, Wuxi, China) was born and raised by Lake Tai in Wuxi. She is the daughter of Wang Dameng, the master of Changpu. Growing up immersed in landscape garden and private collections, Wang is gentle and vivacious in nature and has developed a great interest in drawing and painting since she was little. There wasn’t an empty space on her house’s wall she didn’t painted over and over as a child. Her father didn’t stop her but indulge her creation. After the age of eighteen, regardless of her parents’ disapproval, Wang chose not to follow the steps of her father and went to Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts majoring in Animation. Influenced by Japanese Manga, Wang has developed her own creative processes after graduated from college. After the visit of Huo Qubing Tomb, she was inspired and touched by the silhouettes and lines of the stone carving, along with the desolate vast land of Northwest China. She began working on her illustration of Shanhaijing (The Classic of Mountains and Seas ) by using traditional Chinese color and ink on scroll. It was the first time where she showed her great talents, yet she didn’t take her accomplishment seriously and gave her work as a gift to her friend. Wang then went to Australia and the UK pursuing her further education and has encountered many bizarre things and interesting people on her way. She became familiar with the stories of ghosts and psychics in the Western culture, as well as different religious traditions and beliefs. Since her departure from the homeland, Wang gradually discovered the beauty of traditional Chineses ink painting and took it as her work’s medium. When she returned to China in 2008, she rejected the career paths arranged by her parents and devoted herself into art making and meditation like what she used to do as a child. Her works impressed the guests and family friends who visited her parents house and she started participating in exhibitions ever since.

 

The oeuvre of Wang Mengsha has been developed through her life experiences. Her paintings consist of her acquisition of knowledge, her sight, and her thoughts and feelings. With a degree  of Film and Animation, Wang is able to construct an enormously large and complex virtual world of celestial beings, lovers, and flowers of all seasons, which would give the viewers a visual experience of the Tale of Peach Blossom Land. The figures in her paintings are seemingly childish and witty, yet conveys a sense of melancholy and darkness under the bright atmosphere. She acquired the shape and vitality of classical art form family collections and applied on her works. Meanwhile the art education in the Western world allowed her to use boundless creativity and rich colors to fully illustrate her imagination. She has developed her own understanding of space during the practice of meditation. Objects can alternate between large and small, distance and close, and often overlap with one another. As she said, it feels like she can hear things from thousand miles away while meditating. 

 

With her brush, Wang Mengsha paints without rules and restrictions while also capturing the most detailed figuration. Covering both oriental and occidental sources, her cultivation is indeed profound to feature both traditional look and dynamic concept out of her mind. It is rare to see someone combining and mastering different artistic languages of the East and the West as a whole, not to mention the true feeling and personal emotions embodied at the same time. It is also extraordinarily precious that the artist is idyllic and innocent in nature. In a word, the art by Wang Mengsha is a perfect mixture of three merits.
