[展覽 EXHIBITION] 山斗道人 Mountain Taoist
香港大學美術博物館很榮幸展出六幅本館新入藏的唐家偉 (一九五七至二零一二) 畫作。唐家偉以傳統水墨畫和獨特的「指畫」著稱，本展覽的山水畫與竹畫糅合了上述的特色技法，記錄了畫家從以畫筆轉向運用手指作畫這一趟充滿創意的歷程。
是次展覽的展品數量不多，卻涵蓋了唐家偉人生中至為關鍵的二十年。他自稱「山斗道人」或「山斗老師」，視山水畫為中國藝術中最難掌握的一門學問。大自然 ——並繪畫—— 賦予唐家偉一種如禪般的靈性靜修空間，讓他能退隱其中。

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) is honoured to display six newly donated works by Wesley Tongson (1957–2012). Known both for his traditional ink work and unique style of finger painting, this display combines both techniques, including his mountain landscapes and bamboo paintings, which together document his imaginative move from brush to finger.
Although modest in terms of number of works, the scope of the paintings spans twenty crucial years of Tongson’s life. He considered landscape paintings the most difficult form of Chinese art to master, referring to himself as the ‘mountain Taoist’ or ‘mountain teacher’. Nature offered him a spiritual retreat, a zen-like space that—along with his painting practice—he could withdraw into.
Tongson’s work displays a deep understanding of the natural and spiritual meaning of the Chinese landscape and a continuous appreciation for traditional masters, including their philosophies, art and culture.
