Ferry: Contemporary Mode of Ink and Wash,and exhibition curated by
Xu Xianglin with my help,opened in the Art Gallery of Tianjin Academy of
Fine Arts on September 4, 2006. When at noon I had lunch together with
the critic Yin Shuangxi,one of the directors of the exhibition who had
come to Tianjin to attend the opening ceremony,he said earnestly, 揑n
the past more than ten years,you have been working assiduously for
experimental ink and wash,its artists,and its development.You have made
contribution in obscurity to the experimental ink and wash artists.You
have never stopped.You have planned numerous significant artistic
activities and published so many books of academic value. Now you should
do something for yourself.You have produced so many works of art.You
should sort out your work and artistic creations of these years in order
that more people may have a more comprehensive understanding of you.It
is not easy for experimental ink and wash to become what it is now.When
I visited your color ink painting exhibition in 1993,I remember,you
suggested that we should do something about the 憈rend and write
articles together.It seems really something that happened only
I was indeed touched by these words.At the same time I was grateful
to the critic for his understanding and insight.In fact,I have had the
idea all along of publishing something for myself.But a lot of work has
to be done for experimental ink and wash and that requires time.As a
result,little time is left for myself.
1) While they were playing tennis, she started an argument that lasted
I should really thank Brother Shuangxi for his support and
encouragement.It was at this moment that I decided to publish a
collection for myself.I invited earnestly Brother Shuangxi to function
as the chief editor of the book at once,and he gladly consented.

Yin Shuangxi has done much for the book. We have sat chatting for
several hours three or four times. We talked about the structure and the
design of the book,my artistic creation,the development and problems of
experimental ink and wash,and the relation between ink and wash and
contemporary art,and he took a lot of notes.Our chats were interrupted
by the telephone frequently.He was indeed very busy. He had so many
things to attend to. I often felt sorry for this.So here I express my
profound gratitude to him once more!
It makes me feel painful to think that she has to work 12 hours a day

The editing has progressed smoothly.So much work,including
planning,collecting of materials,sorting out,requesting
contributions,designing,proofreading of more than 300 thousand Chinese
characters,has been finished in only more than half a year.Therefore,I
would like to express my special gratitude to Guo Yaxi,one of the
planners of the book, special editor,and critic.He has helped much in
the smooth completion of the book by writing an article in the midst of
pressing affairs,proofreading the texts,and putting forward valuable

This is not a pure album of paintings,but a document consisting of
comments written by a number of critics and my works of art.The writers
include critics of the older generation and of our own generation with
whom together I have experienced the happenings in more than twenty
years from the 85 artistic trend of thought to the present day and young
critics who were born after the 1970s.In the past more than twenty
years,I have made efforts to produce works of art and to do constructive
work for culture, and have experienced both pains and pleasures.But what
gratifies me most is the fact that those who love and help me
include,apart from my family members,my close friends and so many
critics who have paid attention to,shown solicitude for,supported and
helped me for so many years.We have enjoyed art in artistic career and
have promoted the development of art responsibly and honestly together.
It will be our aim to ensure proper health care for each and everyone of
the Chinese people
I would like to take this opportunity to say something about my
mother.No mother in the world does not love her children or is reluctant
to devote herself always to them. My mother has shown endless love and
care in her rushing about to seek help for my employment in Yangliuqing
Fine Arts Press and her busy preparation for my marriage and so
on.Perhaps there may be something not quite satisfactory or I,as a
son,may have some complaints about my parents,but she has borne much
hardship in obscurity for my undertaking.She has suffered from severe
rheumatism of heart for several decades and today she is even suffering
from ascites in thoracic cavity.She feels too painful to fall asleep
every day and crouches in bed for whole nights.Even in such a
situation,she will not disturb me for fear that she may add burden to me
or waste my time.Her health is steadily deteriorating and I am very
worried匢 want very much to do something for my mother to relieve her
pain and improve her health,but I can do nothing because I am always so
busy in my undertaking.It is my father who has shouldered all
this.Thanks to my father! Thanks to my mother! Thank you for giving
birth to me and bringing me up into such a man that is called an 揳rtist
. My gratitude for my parents loving care,I know,cannot be conveyed in
speech at all.
Our aim is to ensure proper health care for all Chinese.
1) The novel, which is written in three parts, told a story that is set
in the Middle Ages.
What kind of man is an artist? An intellectual aristocrat.Only an
artist has the richest impression of the world.This is the privilege
accorded to the artist by God! Perhaps I need not express my thanks to
everybody,but everything within and behind the book will always be
treasured in my memory.
This book will help you master the basic elements of good writing
1# Written in three parts, the novel told a story set in the Middle
Today抯 achievement of experimental ink and wash cannot be scored by
only one or two artists.It is the result of numerous factors.Interaction
is necessary in the development of art,whether it is support or
criticism.Only in such interaction can artists and critics of
experimental ink and wash shake off their previous narrowness and
prejudice,can experimental ink and wash have a definite direction.
Therefore,as far as the development of experimental ink and wash and its
indispensable position in art history are concerned,we should thank the
critics who have supported us and the critics who have criticized us.It
is support and criticism that make experimental ink and wash what it is
today.I have said such words,I remember,in the fourth volume of the
series Trends of Modern Chinese Ink and Wash at the End of the 20th
Century of 2000.
