无中生有

无中生有 Joseph Addison 是英国的著名作家,他在解释雕刻家的艺术创作时说:“雕像其实就在大理石块儿里,雕刻的艺术在于把多余的垃圾排除掉。”这个说法很有意义,可以帮助我们理解老子“道”的概念。 雕刻家的作品完成之后有两种大理石:雕像和垃圾。用老子的概念来理解Joseph Addison的话,我就可以说,对艺术而言,雕像是“有”,垃圾是“无”。但是在雕刻的过程中,在艺术创作的过程中,雕刻家针对的就是大理石这个“垃圾”的部分,即“无”的部分,而作为雕像的那一部分大理石则是雕刻家要刻意保留下来的,所以必然是不去触碰的。 对于艺术家的创作而言,“无”的大理石是原本“有”的,“有”的大理石是原本“无”。也就是说,成为垃圾的大理石(“无”的大理石)是大理石块原本有的,而成为雕像的大理石(即“有”的大理石)是原本不存在的,是“无”的。 所以从艺术过程和艺术完成作品它们两个角度来看“垃圾”和“雕像”的大理石有截然对立的地位,而这种地位又是相互转化的。对于过程而言“垃圾”是“有”的,因为“垃圾”是雕刻家要去雕刻和排除的大理石部分。“雕像”包括唯一的雕刻家也不能去触碰的大理石部分,所以对于过程而言,雕像是“无”的,不过在雕刻家完成作品的一瞬间,垃圾显然就成为“无”了,雕像则从“无”变为“有”了。也就是说最后的“有”(雕像)是原本的“无”,最后的“无”(垃圾)是原本的“有”。 显然, 艺术创作的过程反映了老子的理论:从无产生有,从有产生无,有无相生,即无与有互相转化,而艺术,或者说老子所谓的道,即从这个转化中产生出来了。 Dao and the Art of Statuary The British writer Joseph Addison, in describing the art of the sculptor, said “The statues lies hid in a block of marble; and the …
