The paintings http://www.thebopps.co.uk/ of dominic man kit lam:Art through science We generally take art and science as two markedly different disciplines of study and for professional grouping, but at root they are deeply intertwined, because artists and scientists both belong to people with creativity and adventurous spirit.In the history of mankind, there have been examples of some geniuses who demonstrated outstanding performance in both disciplines, but those people are rare.Professor dominic man kit lam who is a world renowned scientist as well as a most distinguished chinese artist is an outstanding living example.Presidential medal of merit.In 1999, he was the founding chairman of world eye organization(Weo), a charitable organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eye diseases for the poor.In 2001, he invented vaccine which was named by time magazine as one of the ten most important inventions of the century.His scientific experience, together with his philanthropic work over the past years to rescue the blind from the dark have, at the same time, shed light on his unyielding search for the spiritual enrichment and satisfaction in his creative pursuit in visual art. His early training in chinese literature, painting and calligraphy gives him inner strength and intellectual power that sparks his artistic creative search in parallel with his career as a scientist.The paintings in chinese ink and in mixed media often in large scale and in powerful and dynamic presentation are mainly in abstract style with strong chinese literati characteristics in a modern sense.His chinese calligraphy is of a unique style distinctly different from those of earlier masters.His works have been exhibited widely and collected into numerous museums as well as public and private institutions.He donated a lot of his paintings for charitable causes and to the weo.In 1989, he was appointed by president george bush of the united states of america to be a member of the president committee for the arts and humanities.In 1999, dominic lam was named one of 99 most accomplished and influential artists in china of the 20th century by the chinese academy of art, the artists association of china and the national palace museum of art.In 2001, he was invited to create http://www.thebopps.co.uk/ two monumental paintings:Land is our land(9.5 m x 2.4 m)And galaxy on earth(8.8 m x 8 m)For diaoyutai state guesthouse, the official residence for visiting foreign government leaders in beijing, an honor to be bestowed to chinese artists of the highest caliber. Perhaps what has made dominic lam one of the most outstanding chinese artists in art history is that he invented two apparently distinct and unconnected areas of art:Chromoskedasic painting(Painting on photographic paper)And a new style of chinese calligraphy.Indeed these inventions were both directly related to his scientific trainings:The former in theoretical physics in which he received his master of science degree from the university of british columbia, and the latter in visual science and ophthalmology when he was trained by his nobel laureate mentors professors torsten wiesel and david hubel at harvard medical school.To invent a new style of chinese calligraphy completely different from all former calligraphic styles and myriad calligraphic forms established by master calligraphers in the past thousands of years in chinese art history is most difficult, if not insurmountable.Through his training in ophthalmology and his profound scientific/medical research in how the human mind and eyes work, he has found the secret on how to reconstruct chinese characters, the art of which he was well versed in since he was a boy, so as to present chinese calligraphy as a new individual art form. His other pioneering discovery derived from his scientific training is the application of the principle of gustav mie science theory to create painting.By doing so, he has opened up a completely new venue for artistic presentation in the visual art world.Never before have artists managed to create works of art by playing with the silver particles of different sizes on the photo paper to produce colors and forms without the use of pigments.This new form of artistic presentation, now known as process has inspired artists to enter into a new world of abstract artistic manifestation, resulting in the amazing spectra of visual effects with contrasts of motion and stillness, fullness and emptiness, as well as colors, shades and hues that have never before been achieved.Never before has china witnessed the emergence of a genius like dominic lam who embodies the genes of the highest level of the two disciplines of science and art, and, perhaps The invention of chromoskedasic process is in itself an advance in through science it has brought forth a new means of artistic expression, as it enables an artist to convey his or her message through shapes and colors produced by playing with light intensity and reaction time of photo processing instead of the application of tactile material pigments.This is not an ordinary invention, as it signifies a historical evolution in the media for pictorial presentation on two dimensional surfaces, from the traditional use of tactile pigments to non tactile elements, in this case, light, to satisfy human urge to express creative ideas.A certain quality of unpredictability and the nature of fluidity of tonal values and color variations produced through the chromoskedasic process are the characteristics that make it an ideal medium for spontaneous artistic expressions.Such features are in many aspects similar to the quality of spontaneity and the infinite variation of ink tonal effects in chinese ink art, except that chromoskedasic process goes one step further than chinese ink in that it enables infinite variation in both tonal values and colors.The application of these special characteristics of chromoskedasic process in creative painting will, therefore, greatly enrich the realm of modern ink art.Such an invention coming from the mind of a modern chinese ink painter and a world renowned scientist has its significance and impact not only on the development of chinese art, but also on the development of through science in the international art scene.The emergence of chromoskedasic process sends us a message that through science will prevail in the coming new age of modern art, as we are living in no ordinary time but an era of information technology cum scientific creativity, which has no precedent in human history. In view of dominic lam outstanding artistic achievements, it is no wonder that professor chen ning yang(1922), the first Chinese Nobel Prize Winner in Physics in 1957, commented so highly on Lam works with the following statement inscribed in his own handwriting:Paintings are imbued with inspiration and techniques.No scientists in history have ever demonstrated such artistic talents.
