傅文俊在「空山新雨後」作品中揮灑墨水,繪出一組三乘三的浮凸方格, 反映陰影與空間把主圖墨跡層層延伸。他在眾多作品中展現的分層效果可見他力求打破攝影規範。他認爲一張照片不僅限於對二維平面的解讀,因影像可被切割和延展並與空間和光線互動,創造全新的藝術角度。

The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong will present "Digital Brush: The Photographic Process of Fu Wenjun" from January 8 to January 23, 2019. Fu Wenjun’s creative output can be summed up by his term ‘Digital Pictorial Photography’, which he uses to redefine the traditions found at the core of the photographic arts. By blending elements of other artistic media into the process, he creates a brand-new form of aesthetic pleasure. Fu Wenjun embraces a range of art forms, combining them into unique and monumental works that reach beyond the mere act of recording a photographic image.

‘After Fresh Rain in the Mountains’ showcases his lavish use of ink, which forms a 3 x 3 grid of raised squares that reflect both shadow and space, further expanding the primary inked image. The effect of layering found in much of Fu Wenjun’s art is an example of how he strives to break photographic norms. For him, a photograph is not merely a depiction to be restricted to two dimensions, as the image can be dissected and expanded so as to interact with space and light in the creation of new artistic perspectives.

His work brings together the practical aspect of photography with the aesthetic nature of other forms of visual arts. By demonstrating the complementary relationship of photographs and other modes of artistic practice, Fu Wenjun transforms what may seem to be an inaccessible message into a highly approachable concept that can trigger critical thought about history and humanity.
