Statement: Jacques Rancière stressed “playful hallucinations” as a guiding code for narrative-painting expression, whereas Maurice Merleau-Ponty stressed the description of “dehiscence” and “instantaneous glimpse of movement” from the subject matters through one’s “autofigurative sentiments”. Are there any contradictions between “playful hallucinations” and “autofigurative sentiments”? There is a common ground for both notions which is “To portray the essence of the subject matter based on a sentimental observation on its form” avocation by Gu Kaizhi from the Eastern Jin Dynasty. No matter for manifesting “imaginations” or “eyes from the mind” for creating paintings, Gu Kaizhi’s avocation implies that we should convey the humorous sentiments of the subject matters based on our individual perceptional experiences.

簡介 : 洪席耶主張以「戲玩的幻像」來表現故事性繪畫,而梅洛龐洛則主張以「意向基質」來描繪物像的「裂痕」和「變動感」。「戲玩的幻像」和「意向基質」兩者本身有沒有矛盾?兩種境界的共通點乃是東晉顧愷之的「以形寫神」精髓,無論是以「想像」或是以「心眼」作畫,「以形寫神」就是以個人感知經驗出發去展現物像的趣味。
