Black is naturally born for the uneasiness in his work. Liu Haichen prefers to paint the dark night, the barrenness, the beast and the wild fire; the desolation, chillness and deathly stillness of the northern villages are vividly depicted in his works. He used all kinds of black to express them and little by little he realized only black are qualified to do this job, hence, black became his favorite and the main theme of his works. He wanted to present an unreal and unpredictable space which makes the black as the best one. Therefore he used black deliberately, spending much time to modify the right color and gradation. He especially paid attention to the subtleness of the expression of colors, trying to delineate the delicate changes as if he is attempting to seize a spot of light skimming over the water or a small grain of dust floating in the beam of light. This subtleness is transitory which requires the artist to be on extremely patient and careful more than ever to capture and balance it. Reviewing every simple elements that composed the picture: the light, the strokes, the lines and adjusting them elaborately as build up with complex blocks.

Liu Haichen’s favor in black enhance the light spontaneously and this strong effect on black and white, light and shadow enables his works seemed dramatic ultimately. This may be an opportunity, which leads the artist to the expression of the inauthentic factors within reality. In his works, the scene was real and the plot was blurry and put it together to stroke an emotional chord intensively. It was like a dream, you wake up and the plot fades yet the feeling stays. What remains of the dream is always the most dramatic part, he chooses to present it by painting and use it to strike the audiences’ subconscious.

黑色天生适合表现他的作品中不安的气息,刘海辰喜欢描绘黑夜、蛮荒、野兽和野火……北方的乡村荒凉、寒冷、死寂的气质在他的笔下跃然纸上,他用各种深深浅浅的黑色表现它们,渐渐发觉只有黑色才能胜任对它们的描绘,黑色由此慢慢成为了刘海辰最爱的颜色和他画中的主色调。他希望表现一种非现实的不确定空间,而黑色恰恰可以胜任。所以他便有意识地用黑色作画,花费大量的时间来努力调制恰当的色调与层次。他尤其在意色彩的表达是否微妙,试图去描绘那种微妙,就像要抓住水面上一闪而过的光斑或者是光线中一粒飘浮的尘埃。这种微妙是转瞬即逝的,需要艺术家一百二十分的耐心和细心去捕捉、去平衡。重视构成画面的每一种最单纯的元素:光线、笔触、线条……小心翼翼地调整它们,就像是在搭建高难度的积木。

刘海辰对于黑色的偏爱自然而然地强调了画中的光影,对光影和黑色的着重表现使得他的画满最终呈现出一种戏剧化的场景。这也是一个契机,它将艺术家带入对现实中非现实因素的表现。在画面中,场景是真实的,情节是模糊的,但却带给人强烈的情感共鸣。这就如同一段梦境,梦醒之后,情节已经消散,但那种强烈的情绪你不会忘记。梦境残留的部分往往是戏剧性张力最强的那一部分,艺术家将这一部分用绘画的形式表现出来,直击观者的潜意识。
