88岁的书法家李一业:他主动退出了中国书法协会,因为他不习惯读丑陋的书。

In the face of fame and wealth, it is always the easiest to expose a person’s ideological background. What kind of person, in the face of fame and wealth, will show what they look like to the maximum extent, which can not be concealed and covered up by anyone. If practice is the only criterion for testing truth, then fame and wealth is the best “touchstone” for testing a person

I do not know from which year, always pragmatic academic circles, affected by the outside world, began to blow a flurry of impetuous wind. There are even many people who no longer put learning in the first place. They are eager for quick success and instant benefits, and even play “dream of being an official”. In the field of calligraphy, an old man named Li Yiye, though not as “three word laureate” as Mr. Ji Xianlin, took the initiative to quit Chinese writing and settle down to study. Its noble quality is also worthy of admiration

On December 7, 2015, the Seventh National Congress of the Chinese Calligraphy Association opened. More than 400 calligraphers from all provinces and autonomous regions attended the meeting. What is more striking about this conference is the birth of a new leading body of Calligraphers Association

As I said earlier, in recent years, the pragmatic academia is no longer “pragmatic”, and many people are eager to “become officials”. This seems to be deeply reflected in the election at the Calligraphy Association meeting. What’s more interesting is that the list of the 15 member presidium elected at this meeting is the same as the list of the new chairman and 14 member presidium of the association, which was disclosed by netizens as early as a month ago

Two days later, the meeting ended. At 9 p.m., Zeng Xiang, a calligrapher from Hubei Province, issued an application to withdraw from the meeting in his circle of friends, claiming that he would withdraw from the Chinese Calligraphy Association from now on. After that, Qi Jiannan, Wang Haiquan, Liu Yi, Li Jiwei and others also announced their withdrawal from the Chinese Calligraphy Association, setting off a wave of “withdrawal tide”

As for why there is such a tide of retreat, it may also be reasonable for everyone. After all, the election of the chairman and presidium members of the association was basically not considered from the level of artistic standards. As a result, some real artists were “greatly disappointed”. In this way, many members of the association withdrew, which is a matter of course. But it’s not over yet

In 2016, the Chinese Calligraphy Association carried out a nationwide membership Statistics (it is estimated that it was also the result of the withdrawal tide). The specific list of members was reported level by level and finally determined by all provinces, cities and counties. An interesting thing happened in the process

In determining the membership list of the Chinese Calligraphy Association, Henan calligraphy association found that Mr. Li Yiye, an 88 year old man who lives in Kaifeng, was once a member of the Chinese Calligraphy Association. As a result, Henan Calligraphy Association reported to the higher authorities and directly reported Mr. Li Yiye as a member

As a result, the name of Li Yiye is one of the members of the Chinese Calligraphy Association in Henan Province. When Mr. Li Yiye saw this public list, he found that he had become a member of the Chinese Calligraphy Association again. Naturally, he felt very strange. Of course, strange at the same time, also very angry. So he wrote a statement to quit the Chinese Calligraphy Association

After this statement came out, the withdrawal of the Chinese Calligraphy Association the year before attracted people’s attention again. Therefore, while paying attention to Mr. Li Yiye’s withdrawal from the meeting, netizens praised him for his fortitude and not being associated with distortion. Of course, many people criticized him for his posturing

Mr. Li Yiye announced his withdrawal from the Chinese Calligraphy Association in 2016, when he was 88 years old. However, in the statement, Mr. Li Yiye indicated that he was once a member of the Chinese Calligraphy Association. It’s just that I left all the associations 20 years ago

According to the statement, Mr. Li Yiye also claimed that he had learned to write roughly and had never thought of becoming a calligrapher. However, as a matter of fact, Mr. Li Yiye is a master of contemporary calligraphy and painting. Some people think that his calligraphy level can be compared with that of huaisu, a calligrapher of the Tang Dynasty, or even surpass that of the ancients. Similarly, because Mr. Li Yiye used to be a war correspondent, the true feelings hidden among his scholars are not possessed by most people

In this way, Mr. Li Yiye’s withdrawal from the Chinese Calligraphy Association and his statement are not impulsive and so-called posturing. Therefore, in the statement, Mr. Li Yiye applied to the Chinese Calligraphy Association to delete his name from it

As for the reason why Mr. Li Yiye withdrew from the meeting more than 20 years ago, it was not stated in the statement. However, his last remark is quite thought-provoking. This sentence is “I only want to be clean when I live and clean after I die, that’s all.” from this sentence, we can see that Mr. Li Yiye retired because of the chaos and complexity of the “outside world”

Of course, some people in the industry claim that the reason why Mr. Li Yiye quit the association is that in recent years, the Chinese Calligraphy Association has been influenced by the outside world and no longer pursues knowledge. Old Mr. Li Yiye just wanted to calm down and write. He didn’t want to be with them, so he naturally quit the Chinese Calligraphy Association

Industry insiders said that Mr. Li Yiye felt that many calligraphers did not write traditional excellent calligraphy, instead, they chanted slogans of calligraphy innovation all day long to write “ugly books” that people could not understand. Many people praise these so-called masters and call their works “calligraphy art”. But in fact, these people just can’t write traditional calligraphy well. Their purpose is to find an excuse for themselves, and then “innovate” in a big way. Many of them are members of the Chinese Calligraphy Association

For the calligraphy industry, the former Chinese Calligraphy Association is the “Palace” that almost everyone yearns to join. Because the Chinese Calligraphy Association represents the highest level of Chinese calligraphy. It is a great honor for any calligrapher to be able to enter it

But now, with the development of society, with the influence of the outside world, the members of the Chinese calligraphy association can no longer represent the highest level of Chinese calligraphy. Moreover, the members of the presidium of the Chinese Calligraphy Association, without considering the level of calligraphy art, will naturally make the real artists lost

In this case, some people say that quitting the Chinese Calligraphy Association is not a bad thing. Because after I quit the Chinese Calligraphy Association, I can do some reading and writing quietly. As Mr. Li Yiye wrote in his statement, he is clean in life and clean after death

However, the election of the chairman and members of the presidium of the Chinese Calligraphy Association is indeed easy to cause some disputes and dissatisfaction. This is probably because everyone can be elected and no one is qualified to be elected. In other words, there are no real masters who can live in learning nowadays. In this way, many people will naturally be dissatisfied. It’s better to withdraw

事实上,这个结果和我之前说的一样,不是坏事。因为退会后,达到“大师”级别的概率可能会增加很多

客观地说,无论是画家还是书法家,一般来说,艺术家应该是纯粹的。但这个社会并不简单。因此,要求艺术家静下心来研究,也许不太现实,但无论如何,既然我们走的是艺术家之路,以艺术家为职业,我们还是要谈最低限度的职业道德。总之,“做官梦”或许是可能的,但其自身的技能和实力应该放在首位。您对此有何看法
