序言

 

江南春日,从花格窗中吐露的日光悠长和缓,庭院沉沉寂不哗,人与物皆安静和穆。佳人素手持针,擘发而绣之,昼夜不息之,绣成一幅发绣佛。

发绣在古代又称墨绣,在制作中先以墨线起稿,再用发丝代线,以滚、缠、切、接等刺绣针法绣制,绣面效果颇有墨线勾勒的白描风格,因此得名。据传发绣起源于唐代,当时的信众将发丝剪下,以白描法绣佛像以表虔诚。宋代孝女周氏,为纪念其母,刺血手书妙法莲华经七万字,以发丝绣之,历时二十三年而成。发绣历来不同于丝绣的日常之用,发绣在初始就是人类精神的折射。 三千发丝,丝丝入画,每一副发绣作品都是艺者注入的精魄。

苏州发绣历来是发绣艺术传扬的中心,而苏州人周莹华是当代苏州发绣的守护者。其父高伯瑜先生被尊称为“现代发绣之父”,她继承长者的坚守与精神,长饮寂寞,恪守本心。从艺二十余年,除了传承传统技艺,亦致力于将发绣艺术推广发扬,在浮躁物化的现代生活中,发绣不仅是艺术品,也是洗荡心尘,澄净思想的高雅意象。

同时感谢周莹华女士捐赠《货郎图》《观音像》两件作品,为丰富我馆馆藏作出贡献。

Preface

 

On a spring day of Jiangnan, the long and gentle daylight shed through lattice window along with quiet courtyard. Everything was solemn and graceful. The lady was holding a needle, embroidering with hair, staying up from day to night and a work of Buddha was completed.

 

Hair embroidery was also known as ink embroidery in ancient times. It started with blue print in black thread and then replaced the thread with hair. Embroidered by rolling, wrapping, cutting and connecting, the surface of work is like outline drawing with no color. The hair embroidery originated from Tang Dynasty, the believers used their hair to embroider Buddha images with their piety. The filial daughter Zhou used her blood to write down Saddharma-pundarika-sutra with totally seventy thousand words and then embroidered her calligraphy with her hair within twenty-three years long. The hair embroidery is different from ordinary silk work. It reflects human spirits at the very beginning. Hair in painting is no other than artist soul work.

 

Suzhou is always the center of hair embroidery art. Zhou Yinghua is a preserver of modern hair embroidery as a native Suzhounese. She inherited her father’s sticking to this art and his spirit, who was also known as the father of modern hair embroidery, and followed her heart with loneliness. She has devoted herself to this art for twenty years, not only keeping traditional art skill, but also spreading it. The hair embroidery is beyond art work, but an elegant image of purified minds in this fickle and materialized society.  

 

Our appreciation on her generosity by donating two of her works, Vendor and Avalokitesvara to enrich our collections.
