From the traditional point of view, only the officially painted works could be considerd as artworks. And manuscripts, sketches and croquis did not contain so-called artistic value. This could explain why the exhibition of Francis Bacon’s manuscripts in AMNUA several years ago was that controversial.展览现场，南京逸空间Exhibition View, Nanjing EAST GALLERY展览现场，南京逸空间Exhibition View, Nanjing EAST GALLERY手稿作为艺术的一种表现形式，它有着特殊的价值和意义。人们往往忽视它的存在，但又永远绕不过。从文艺复兴时期，达芬奇创作手稿和草图到“最后一位画家”培根在纸上的肆意涂抹，有哪位真正热爱艺术的人能不被这些手稿所折射出的魅力所吸引呢？而此次“人间如梦——朱新建手迹展”展示出的作品，不仅是对朱新建个人艺术的回顾和深入探讨，更是对艺术史层面的创作方法论的一次回应。However, manuscript as a form of art does have special value and meanings. People usually do not pay much attention to it yet this could not be neglected at all. Whoever with passion for art would not be attracted by Leonardo da Vinci’s drafts or Bacon’s manuscripts? Furthermore, this exhibition is not only a review of Zhu’s attractive works, but also a response to the historical perspective of art creating methodology.展览现场，南京逸空间Exhibition View, Nanjing EAST GALLERY

本次展览的作品是从大量的朱新建手迹中遴选出来的，并通过年代、风格、题材分成多个部分，包括人体写生、戏曲、漫画、拼接作品、文字手稿、童话故事以及临摹的线稿，时间贯穿朱新建三十多年的创作生涯，每个部分都用朱新建生前最常用的词牌名命名，譬如古梅曲、画堂春、江南雨、相见欢、眼儿媚、忆汉月等，不仅令人浮想。The artworks on spot have been chosen thoroughly and divided into different parts, which were named under the most frequently using peom format by Zhu Xinjian, such as Old Drama Mei, Drizzling Jiangnan, Joyful Meeting and so on. The genres of Zhu’s works vary, covering sketch, comics, handwriting, fairy tales and the creating period spans from 1980’s to 21th century.古梅曲-8铅笔绘于纸上20.5x15.3cm画堂春-7铅笔绘于纸上25.5x18cm画堂春-2铅笔绘于纸上25.5x18cm眼儿媚-18铅笔绘于纸上18x12.5cm眼儿媚-34铅笔绘于纸上18x13cm眼儿媚-28铅笔绘于纸上18x13cm
We have to admit that the show-up of Zhu’s manuscripts opens a window for us. We could not better understand how hardworking and diligent he was and how frankly he treated the painting thing. Although there was a little regret, that we would not see the original status of the works, causing by disassembling the integerate sketch book into pieces for scanning, but we still tried our best present the unbroken clue amongst his painting through carefully organising and placing these works. We sincerely wish the audience entering here could feel the real Zhu Xinjian with his alacrity. 陈瑞 Chen Rui2019.11 展览现场，南京逸空间Exhibition View, Nanjing EAST GALLERY
