“水墨家园”是我多年来关注与表现的主题之1 。如今，很多我们非常熟悉的，与历史、文明 、经历、情感紧密相连的家园环境，在你还来不及回首关注时，不知不觉中就消逝了。北京的四合院、北京的胡同、宫墙下的杨柳、皇城外的红墙、老槐树组成的静谧林荫……这1 切无不牵动着人们的情思，成为人们情感的依赖与精神的寄托。我期望用本身 的水墨言语 表现那渐渐逝去的浓烈印象与记忆。
为了寻觅 新的绘画言语 和感受，我曾多次到西部藏地。历经黄河源头、长江源头、柴达木、阿里、珠峰、那曲、玛曲、碌曲、夏河……我有了和藏地藏人近距离接触的机缘。藏地的纯净博大、浑厚苍茫，藏人的逼真 挚热、刚悍和淳朴，都给我以震动 ——那是1 个让人魂牵梦萦的神秘境地。企图走得更近，可它永久 在远方，永久 包含着变化、失去与永久 ……藏地已成为我不灭的精神家园与创作源泉。
“写生”是艺术家将大自然赋予的感动与传统程式化表现情势 及个人审美选择连接起来的重要环节，是对自然、传统的再发现、再认识，是山水画基本功练习的重要1 环，最具活力与生机。写生使艺术家心灵直面瞬息万变的客观世界，能让传统与当代文明 和 个人的表现经验发生碰撞，激发无穷 的创作灵感，推动审美领域的新发现。
“水墨”是李小可艺术生涯选择的次要 言语 方式，也是缘：父亲、山水、中国画的表现……它承载着东方文明 的特征。
“家园”是我们所处时代和赖以生存的自然，传统文明 同样是1 种“家园”。当你走进去时，它会给你带来深深的感动和无穷 的表现空间。艺术家难的是要把这类 感动转化为个人化、程式化的绘画言语 ，这需求 用“艺比天大”的态度去感悟、实践，才有可能实现这个转化。父亲讲“千难1 易”“苦学派”“实者慧”表明了这个过程的艰辛；“学步”“问道”“以学为进”是李小可的坚持；“有没有 之间”是多年来在水墨实践中的感悟；“吸纳”“为我所用”则是李小可对待外来文明 和当代视觉经验的态度。他不断 努力把传统与自然、生活连接起来，不断寻觅水墨表现新的可能。
他想艺术是从感动开始的，艺术也是生命所经历的岁月的痕迹。当我们回顾过去，本身 好像是人生旅途的1 个行者，作品就是这个行者在探索的荒途中所做的“活儿”。

Li Xiaoke based on the feelings of life, pay attention to absorb the foreign art nutrition, depth to face life, to find their own personalized from the strong feeling of the life in the painting language, performance based on heavy experience, formed a special style of painting. Beijing, Tibet and Mount Huangshan become the three important components of Chinese painting "ink home" series.

In 2003 Li Xiaoke began to explore these works re creation, the combination of print language and documentary photography, creating "hidden traces" series prints. These works become another new artistic expression system of Li Xiaoke's "ink home" series.
Li Xiaoke and hid a deep affection, in the experience of life at the same time, the development of special attention, support Tibet art career, contributed to the formation of contemporary Tibet painting. Since 2004, sponsored planning "snow on" "beauty of Tibet" Tibet contemporary art exhibition.

Over the years, in addition to insist on creation, Li Xiaoke Li Keran is committed to promote artistic spirit, carry forward the traditional culture, since the beginning of 1980s, the Li Keran art exhibition planning, organization meetings, and held various large academic seminars, and edited and published dozens of paintings. 2007 planning, organizing "century can be dyed - to commemorate the one hundred anniversary of the birth of Li Keran" series of activities, (Beijing, China Art Museum), edited and published album books, such as the nineteen.
"Ink home" is one of the themes of my concern and performance over the years. Today, many of us are very familiar with the history, culture, experience, emotions closely linked to the home environment, in your time to look back attention, unknowingly disappeared. The quiet Beijing courtyard, Beijing Hutong, palace under the willow, outside the imperial city walls, the old tree lined...... All of these affects people's emotion and spirit, become dependent on people's emotional sustenance. I hope to use my ink language to express the strong impression and memory that gradually fade away.
In order to find new painting language and feelings, I have repeatedly to the western tibet. After the source of the Yellow River, the source of the Yangtze River, Mount Everest, Qaidam, Ali, Nagqu, Maqu, Xiahe, luqu...... I have a close encounter with Tibetan Tibetans. Tibet's broad, vast and pure, real hot, Tibetans just defended and honest, gave me the shock -- that is a mysterious place that everyone dreams. Trying to get closer, but it is always in the distance, always contain change, loss and eternal...... Tibetan land has become my immortal spiritual home and creative source.
Landscape Mount Huangshan
Mount Huangshan is the sacred place of Chinese landscape painting. In 1978, to Mount Huangshan sketch, and had the honor to meet the famous Japanese painter Mr. Kaii Higashiyama. Since then many times to Mount Huangshan sketch. In 2007, the Mount Huangshan Scenic Area Management Committee of Mount Huangshan Academy of painting and calligraphy, I was invited to the Academy of painting and calligraphy, and the continuation of the Mount Huangshan more love, but also take up the picture of good Mount Huangshan, Mount Huangshan dedication responsibility. Mount Huangshan and Anhui has become an important opportunity for me to explore the landscape painting with content.
learn from nature
"Painting" is an important part of nature gives artists will be moved with the traditional stylized forms and personal aesthetic choice connected, is the natural and traditional discovery and understanding of landscape painting, is an important part of the basic training, the most vigor and vitality. Sketch makes the artist's mind face the ever-changing objective world, can make the traditional and contemporary culture and personal performance experience collide, stimulate infinite creative inspiration, promote the new discovery of aesthetic field.
Tibet left more than 10000 photos, has become an indelible memory of my life. With the passage of time, still deeply touched by these memories, began to explore the reproduction of the filled with inspiration and passion pictures in print language. In the process of creation, the statues and scriptures carved in stone, printed on the flags of Tibetans as the generation with endless life, with a sincere heart, the eternal memory of continuous track, in order to express Tibet deep admiration and moved.
"Ink painting" is the main language way of Li Xiaoke's art career choice, also is the margin: father, landscape, Chinese painting performance...... It bears the characteristics of Oriental culture.
"Homeland" is the nature of our times and survival, traditional culture is also a "home". When you go in, it will bring you deeply touched and infinite performance space. It is difficult for artists to transform this kind of movement into personalized and stylized painting language, which needs to be realized and implemented by the attitude of "art is bigger than the sky". My father speak of "thousand difficult easy" and "bitter" school "real wisdom" indicates that the painstaking process of "learning"; "asked" to learn "into" is the insistence of Li Xiaoke; "no" is the sentiment in Chinese ink painting for many years; "absorb" "use" is Li Ke towards foreign culture and contemporary visual experience. He has been trying to connect the traditional and nature, life, and constantly look for new possibilities ink performance.
He thought that art started from moving, and art is the trace of life. When we look back on ourselves, we seem to be a traveler on the journey of life, a work that the traveler has done on the road of exploration ".
