In 1986, Lai Shaoji returned to south of the Five Ridges over seventy years of age, settled in Guangzhou. For the 1915 born in Guangdong Puning rural artists from engaged in the new woodcut movement in Guangzhou youth, to join the Democratic liberation and national independence to the revolution before the founding of long-term military fighting in Guanshan, displaced, whirling fire smoke, and then after the liberation of official Yiyi 9 years wandering sea, Mount Huangshan 26 years before the the road of life, return to hometown, this time, it seems to be a "left my back" old life story, the fate of the circle will be locked to the dredging, and handsome man with a serious illness...... Although the native Guangdong party and government leaders and artists gave Lai Shaoji to the courtesy and care of the sublime, although the southern warm and moist to the old man's body is good, although south of the Five Ridges "two high and one posthumous is about Chen Shanyue, Li Xiongcai stars shine, but this school is in the late Qing Dynasty and Republic of China the peak is no longer...... So late entry, depending on the art of life such as Lai Shaoji, hardly will be good. Relatives and friends have faint worry, even predicted that Lai Shaoji will be in the southern colorful kapok tree, in the noisy and noisy surround, walk the desolate and lonely life in. Coupled with the social rumors, long-term living and working in Anhui's Lai Shaoji have JAC earth as their spiritual home and second home, are very willing to end up in the same. Here is Lai Shaoji in 1991, "Mount Huangshan dream" as evidence. The title writes, "I return home, I dream of Mount Huangshan. Dream to write bitter, Bibi sweat wet shirt." The bitter hekan. Anhui for Lai Shaoji is not better than the hometown hometown! However, at that time in Anhui province CPPCC Vice Chairman of the Lai Shaoji company to expand a little of his own studio desire can not solve. A large, candid atmosphere clank life Lai Shaoji does not care about these trivial publicity fine, but it is not difficult to guess, Lai Shaoji occasionally in heart and chewing, certainly not some lost the taste. All this makes Lai Shaoji yelaguigen somewhat helpless a sad color
The history and reality, there are often some of the powerful and rich family wealth and pride in the world, but if stripped of their aura, it is not difficult to find the heart of the vulgar. And a real spirit full of people, regardless of their origin, how poor, how humble life circumstances how lonely, we will find his gorgeous and noble temperament, and the little light passing the true colour of a hero is often, as they struggled to work in this position the paper life poem calligraphy and painting. Or as the "dull remarks died over the" Du Ministry of epic, or as "full of ridiculous statement, a bitter tears" of Cao Xueqin's article, or as Xu Qingteng, Huang Binhong, the "human scale ink painting without tears".
Comprehensive accomplishment and versatile Lai Shaoji is recognized in the contemporary art world, in poetry, printmaking, painting, calligraphy and seal cutting and is very successful. However, today, these are just Lai Shaoji on the road of art, gradually increasing gradually reached a higher level. And the most representative of his achievements, is undoubtedly his extraordinary creation in the field of Chinese painting.

Lai Shaoji calligraphy
Lai Shaoji in youth, began to learn Zheng Banqiao Fateh, later his interest and attention in the line of kings, strict in demands repeatedly clinical learning "the Lanting Pavilion sequence", stipple the calligraphy of Wang Xizhi, Jieti, Zhang Fa, all the charm of words to grasp, clear in mind. Lai Shaoji "Lanting Pavilion sequence" thirty years without interruption, copying more than a thousand times. Ouyang Xun was obsessed with the script, McKinnon, heart chasing hand man paint book for twenty years, and eventually became their own style. He used the McKinnon "paint book" painting, very harmonious. "Lacquer book" with Lai Shaoji's aesthetic taste of "clumsy" and "Park"". McKinnon "paint pen book" such as cut, both innocent and lovely, stupid and elegant, rich stone taste, bring out the painting of the majestic momentum.
Lai Shaoji said: I write the topic is the need for gold farmers, while forming their own style always have a process, I Pro Jin farmers is not like." He was to innovation of Jin Nong "paint", and then carefully studied Deng Shiru and Yi bingshou calligraphy, he felt the script has Yi bingshou decorative beauty, but be too deliberate, and that Deng Shiru's script are very thick, two follow, fusion in Jin Nong "paint book". This blend, make Lai Shaoji calligraphy in Jin Nong calligraphy as the main body, some strokes into Yi bingshou, party get Jin Lee, the turning point of reference to Yuanhun, to tear nest on the blackboard, ranging from very real book, has revealed the strong sense of force. His paint Book dignified, rich taste of stone; cursive stream natural, showing the art of naive and unsophisticated in Fenghua tactfully, embodies the beauty of simplicity and clumsy. It is "McKinnon pen, meaning the vigorous rate also has Deng Shiru to antique flavor, weight is clever, strokes of exquisite decorative beauty and strength, Yi bingshou." These are cleverly formed Lai Shaoji Park All blend into one harmonious whole., Zhuoqi rise, round and rich, elegant chic style of calligraphy.
Lai Shaoji seal
Lai Shaoji participated in the early years of the new woodcut movement advocated by Lu Xun, carved by the former Soviet Union, Germany, Kathe Kollwitz and so on, create a large number of Anti Japanese prints, in the national struggle in the temper of more skillful techniques.
During 1950s, Lai Shaoji presided over the East China Artists Association in Shanghai, Huang Binhong, Fu Baoshi, associate with Zhu Qizhan, Pan Tianshou, Xie Zhiliu, Wu Hufan, Lu Yanshao, Sha Menghai, Lin Sanzhi and a number of old painting and calligraphy artists closely. A generation of masters have profound research on the stone, Mr. Huang Binhong, a collection of ancient India one thousand parties, was good at writing and printed into books, such as Tang Yun, Wang Geyi; Lai Chusheng, Qian Juntao, Bai Jiao itself making master; one of his friends, Liu Yazi's nephew Xu Xiao, is China's famous bamboo carving masters, the bamboo carving, pot, inkstone, India, are all wonderful need; Lai Shaoji appreciate being many lessons and enlightenment.
Anhui carving has a long history, the Ming and Qing dynasties that created a brilliant performance, Huizhou carving calligraphy art is extremely far-reaching impact on the national production. At the end of 50s, Lai Shaoji to Anhui, and Deng Shiru of Cheng mysterious ancient Huizhou carving art of painting and calligraphy, and in-depth understanding of Huizhou artists created wood carvings, brick and stone carving art, for the working people and beautiful patterns carved words and sigh and appreciation.
Lai Shaoji profound knowledge, profound knowledge, experiences of struggle, noble character, more important is he learning tirelessly, excelsior attitude, from the solid foundation of printmaking, sculpture, painting and calligraphy across the broader art of the sea, the success also reasonable. He created hundreds of square carving works, which will be the 135 party by "no Yi room India", while calligraphy notes, made the yinpu album of classic elegance. He engraved picture, the actual opening and closing, pale with simple embodiment of enlightenment talent and diligence skill, must reach a very high level.
Lai Shaoji seal maxim, poetry, epigram, name, composition, principle and seal design according to the content, structure, and balance absorption golden section painting factors, combining the traditional calligraphy and seal cutting techniques. Both side of the printed or printed cloth in inch polyhedral, ingenious conception established, namely Chen, cutting such as pens, without modification, Zhu, white paper with bold lines and lively, healthy, humorous, inspired ones, works with nature. The engraved seal with fresh, without losing the ancient Indian wind, unique charm and infinite artistic charm of Qin and Han dynasties.
Lai Shaoji was in 1979 in the "Wen Wei Po" wrote "Wang Geyi and his painting" in 1989, papers on Huang Binhong - "mohai cloud" on write "Mr. Huang Binhong as a person and painting", "calligraphy in 1993 published" friend "of Deng Shiru". In addition, there are "registering letter" Introduction "," Xu Xiaomu's Bamboo carving art "and other articles, not only is the outstanding achievement on art masters, but also make the introduction of carving calligraphy. He is very insightful, think "100," observed taking hundreds of long, to enrich themselves, to inherit and innovate.
The less Mr words, far Hong Bao Zi school, Longyan, nearly eight Yangzhou home gold Dongxin, such as cutting stroke shifting feeling Cang stability, together, have strong correspondence and stone stone taste, flavor. The so-called "The writing mirrors the writer.", "painting as the person", where the same little Mr. with others who say, as he is in his poetry, calligraphy and painting: naive, upright, bold. He concealed his view of reality never to a friend in perfect sympathy with each other, ready to stand out for justice. Especially after ten years of catastrophe, many artists have the experience to say: "such as wind Supergrass, Lai is a man of noble character!" he does not drink, do not smoke, my hobby is: Poetry and painting. Whenever it comes to the most happy question, always gushing, unrestrained passion can not be stopped. This is precisely a poet and painter unique temperament.
In addition to poetry, calligraphy and painting, he also in India to wood carving and calligraphy skills. Engraved White seal is very Chinese seal taste. Be known as "the four". He is also quite rich, fine gold Dongxin identification, painting, Chen Laolian flowers, Taoist scale album and so on, are his hidden treasures.
In pursuit of ideals, few students insist on learning, decades, such as one day, never slack off. Sixty-five years old, still proudly carrying a painting sac, driving the swirling clouds, across the valley, Mount Huangshan continues to climb the ladder.
"A stone" spirit of appreciation, is Mr. Lai Shaoji for nearly seventy years of his artistic career gives us valuable spiritual wealth left to future generations. "A stone" spirit of Li Xinzhi, Chinese inherited traditional engraving and the spirit of innovation and new era in the creation of the national characteristics, deepen the aesthetic understanding of it will make "new Huizhou prints" further carry forward.
It is one of the pioneers of modern small Chinese engraving art. At the beginning of 30s, Lu Xun advocated woodcut art in Shanghai, he and Li Hua et al in Guangzhou created the "modern prints", created a lot of works, Mr. Lu Xun will have their works published and introduced to Japan, known as "the most combat green wood engraver". When the nation is in danger, the less decided to bring pen enlist in the army, engaged in the war of national liberation. The five century, in 60s, he organized a group of young artists, the creation of a number of large-scale construction of the motherland print Beijing Great Hall of the people, the formation of a new style with the characteristics of the times and distinctive artistic style. "".
Calligrapher, painter, print Lai Shaoji, for decades, has always been a sneak in his art career. For decades he kept his faith and his love. For decades "perseverance", his artistic achievement is "ask and have".
Lai Shaoji's prints show their uniqueness in skill and style. He had carved six feet as big prints, which is surprising, only so large, from the print history, is unprecedented. A print is written "Huaibei Jiangnan", contains rich meaning of landscape painting, elaborate structure strongly close to Chinese painting, and also combines with coloring and color Chinese painting in color, can be said to be a combination Chinese painting form, creating a hitherto unknown history of prints the face of. Therefore, it gives people the feeling of art, is full of practical significance and a China painting atmosphere of the novel wind open up a fresh outlook.
In early 30s, I knew the young Lai Shaoji wood home, his work is appreciated by Lu Xun, and earnestly taught him: how to inherit the tradition of folk in printmaking, the people loved painting, the integration of the European law, the new painting with national and local characteristics, to see him "and practice". Lu Xun had deep hopes for him.
The liberation of Shanghai, the first time I met Comrade Lai Shaoji, impressed me, is a simple and honest hardworking artists, he loves art, the pursuit of art. Once, the less his collection of paintings depicting the open to me, Chen Laolian, Jin Dongxin, Zheng Banqiao, Huang Binhong, Sui Cheng, Fu Baoshi, Pan Tianshou...... He introduced his face passionately devoted Cheng mysterious landscape painting album to me, pointing to the excitement on the album inscription he wrote to me: "hate three hundred years younger, also cannot worship as a teacher." From this simple inscription, he can be seen in the late Ming Dynasty and early Qing Dynasty famous painter of Xin'an painting school and seal the Taoist dumping mood scale. He carefully copied in ecstasies he could find Cheng mysterious landscape artworks. I appreciate his copy format, if you don't explain, indeed "spurious". He imitated Tang "kuanglu Gorges map", spent three or four months of time. I saw his two prints, one is the "Huaihai battle song" one is, "golden autumn", basically use elaborate structure China painting, absorbing performance method China traditional painting, the picture is full of the flavor of the times, open a new way to print.
We should appreciate Mr. Lai Shaoji's painting, we must first clarify the relationship from Ni Yunlin to Huang Binhong, to the profound experience of a fat link.
I might have some innate preference for literati painting, but I am referring to the literati painting is not those paintings in the south window otherworldly poet left ink taste. I love the realm of lofty beauty, charm, temperament profound poetic works. Such landscape painting, for our soul to open another vast world. The more idealistic landscape painting, the more can reveal the soul of Oriental art. In the modern China landscape painting, I think Mr. Lai Shaoji is in the pursuit of this point.
In the long term, a symbol of war in ancient China fire smoke war in life, Lai Shaoji was a soldier and his paintings, firm and unyielding character; full of passion surging to the motherland, the land of mountains and rivers, to live hard, work between people, love is so sincere, from under his pen, cloud, waterfall diarrhea in Songtao the author, heard the voice call a jump.
He is a very hard worker in studying tradition. Cheng mysterious "dry autumn, spring run with" taste "method with Benxiao light" and features, he was dissolved in a furnace, create both pure thick satin and steady work, unrestrained Chang Lang's style of painting.
His calligraphy, calligraphy of Wang Xizhi "Lanting Pavilion", the Hong Bao, Lishu far school Longyan, nearly eight gold Dongxin strange Yang method, such as cutting stroke, Qiaoba Cangjin, has a strong tie with Jane stone charm. Deng Taishan, bangshu science Qi stone Valley, from square to round.
Because of his early years in woodcut, so his dance is also very unique, knife carve, Portsmouth Ruohan India, such as Jin pine, stone can be amazing.
He is also a poet, especially his poems, strong, emotional beauty, environment deep, Painting-in-poetry, implication of music and life, we view the newly published "the poem" from the book.
His poetry calligraphy and painting as one solution, with all enjoy praising his beloved motherland, people should love and lovely.
Nevertheless, he on artistic creation skills, still insisted on exploring; he at the age of seventy, still full of pride back painting sac, driving the swirling clouds, across the valley, and to Mount Huangshan company, and climbing the ladder.
