Stunning, Du Jianqi's sketch art brings me a strong sense of surprise, which even has a hint of "catastrophe": the sketch as the basis of western painting can still draw it like this? For me, who studied fine arts and once hoped to take painting as my life ambition, I never even thought that sketch could be painted like this before I came into contact with Du Jianqi's sketch art, and it could be painted so well and amazing. I didn't even think that sketches could be expressed in this way.In literature teaching, I have repeatedly declared that "every wall is a door and every kind of trap is a writer's self-trap. In places where we are used to thinking that this road is impassable, there are always great writers and artists who have opened the door, and his existence and practice will make us suddenly enlightened ..." However, in the face of sketch, I still have an unconscious self-trap, which secretly sets limits for it.It was the painter Du Jianqi's attempt and creation that made me "suddenly enlightened", which made me understand that the original sketch can be so artistic, not only the basic light and shadow description and structural reference, but also can be given, changed, increased and decreased, and formed into its brand-new and unique way.

Du Jianqi is a great painter. In my opinion, his exploratory artistic change is somewhat similar to Lin Fengmian's and Wu Guanzhong's artistic change of Chinese painting-he can easily get rid of the stereotype, bring forth new ideas, absorb from other artistic ways, replenish this kind of art and make it look new.

First of all, let's look at Du Jianqi's "subtraction". In his sketch art, it is difficult for us to see the old appearance of "black, thick, heavy and solid" in the sketch system of the college. Here, he always uses short pens, always counts white as black, and always grasps the key points and makes the rest brief-all along, our sketch emphasizes solidity, which is a concrete capture of the structure of objects and the relationship between light and shadow. It is mostly used as other painting art categories (such as oil painting and gouache watercolor) "Accuracy, texture, light-dark relationship" is what it should focus on, and there is no place for "generalization" in its whole artistic appeal, and the generality of art is not emphasized in the sketch.

I want to talk about the "addition" in Du Jianqi's sketch art again. One of the additions is the addition of means. His sketches are not just using pencils and carbon bars, but "comprehensive materials". When necessary, he will add carbon powder, watercolor and even chalk, and all available and adjustable raw materials and utensils can be added, as long as it is beneficial to expression and enhances the effect of expression-and the use and addition of white powder is really wonderful.The second addition is the removal and superposition of watercolor and oil painting effects, which breaks the hidden barrier between artistic ways. Du Jianqi's sketch has a sense of "watercolor", which is different from the previous language style of sketch. He strengthened the wet and comfortable "infiltration", strengthened the "moisture", and changed some of the previous "hard turns" into the present "soft turns", while some blank-keeping methods were also drawn from watercolor and some oil-based comprehensive materials. Like his "Girl in Red", "Uygur Girl", like his "Fang Yuan"-he intends to blend, while retaining the inherent and advantages of one kind of artistic expression, he also skillfully adds the advantages of other painting methods, thus making individuality and creativity become prominent. When I talked about Du Jianqi's integration, I deliberately didn't mention the difficulty. In fact, it is much more difficult than what we thought and saw. Every step of the way is on the road of trial and error, it is a double adventure of spirit and practice. However, when he completed it, he turned an almost impossible road into a thoroughfare, in which only he knows about the joys and sorrows and some setbacks.

What shocked me most and impressed me most in Du Jianqi's sketch art was his "capture", which showed his unique acumen in sketch art. Generally speaking, sketches often depict "still life", while people who are models are also a kind of "still life" existence. What they leave behind in painting is an ordinary inherent image, which is their "reality" and the presentation of the inherent micro-point of the image-but in Du Jianqi's view, his sketch art needs more than that, and he tries to capture a shorter "burst" and put it. "Expression" is a precious and unique part of Du Jianqi's sketch art, and it is also the most moving part of his art.In 2014, he He painted a portrait of a character. He wearing a beret looked sideways, squinting slightly, and his mouth tilted down ... I noticed that he was rich and complicated in it. I even thought that Du Jianqi even built a secret passage for us to the "silent dark area" in this two-dimensional paper space, which was extremely intriguing. The girl who squints slightly in "The Surge of Youth" gives me a completely different feeling. What it contains is actually surging and hiding the surging, even with some ignorance. In "Emptiness", Du Jianqi's inspiration for us to establish emptiness is multiple. The emptiness of the space faced by the girl, the emptiness of the background dealt with simply and the emptiness of her heart revealed by opening her eyes are perfectly and subtly combined. What he captures is actually an "essential" thing, although it seems to be just a fleeting moment.Du Jianqi painted unbridled joy in Pure, coziness and vagueness in Comfortable, shouting loudly in Have something to say, and anger in Adan: Drawing these is not good at sketching art in my opinion, but Du Jianqi turned it into good at it. What surprised me even more was his Sexy Series, where his choice of expressing "sexiness" was so partial. He deliberately eliminated the body and her curves, eyes and breasts that were easy to express "sexiness", and only chose "lips" and tongue in lips. He forced himself to choose between hard and harder, and then forced himself to choose harder. This self-"forcing" is unexpected, however, it turns the impossibility and impossibility into amazing and exciting possibilities.When talking about this group of paintings, Professor Geng Jipeng once said, "Sexy works do not emphasize the emotion of lines and scenes, but integrate sexy texture into several visual feelings such as' moist',' waxy',' soft',' charming' and' sweet' through the real and virtual picture layout ... The use of color is also unique in Sexy series, pink. In my opinion, his evaluation is to the point.

I also want to talk about Du Jianqi's meticulous and unique composition, the expanded "beauty" in his sketch art, and the "extra" meaning and richness of his sketch because of Du Jianqi's capture of emotions, what he lost in the process of painting and what he added by using "illocutionary words" ... In my opinion, Du Jianqi is a creator with great talent, talent and wisdom and ability. In my opinion, Du Jianqi may even change my sketch idea and that of many of us, and he can even feed back some western art with this western art method.
