林子影 花鸟作品处 处可看出 海派 的大写 意传统 功力,纵横 豪放、潇洒飘逸、淳朴浑厚。梅、兰、竹、菊的画 法显示 出扎实 的写意画 基础又加 以创新,梅花的 构图大胆,采用画面 满构图又在空白 处写上 书法诗句,体现了 梅枝苍劲、梅花 之茂密,风格 独特,90年 代初林 子影开 始创 作重彩 水墨 和抽 象山水,大胆 运用 泼彩 泼墨,挥洒 自如,轻松 奔放 地画 出中 国名 山风光,此时 林子影 创作已 走向高峰。

在林子影 的作品上看 出具 有海 派传 统功力又 有南 洋特色,生长 在南 洋的林 子影正 是优秀 的海派 弟子,把海派绘画 发扬光 大的同 时又融 入自 己身 处的 环境,创作无数 具有 南洋风 的优 秀作品,他还积 极参与 各种艺 术活动,担任学 校美术 主任,担任 华翰 书画 研究 会会长,担 任中华 美术 研究会 理事,他教学 认真,他所教 的学生 成绩突出,获奖 无数。林子 影在美 术活动 中为新加坡做 出了重大 贡献。不幸 的是林 子影 于1995年 12月与美 术同 仁共游 中国 山西太 原时 病逝,享年 55岁。此乃 新加坡美术 界的遗 憾 和损失。

林 子 影 已经 离开 我们 整整25 年了,但人 们 没 有 忘 记 林 子 影,没 有 忘 记 他 对 新 加 坡 美 术 的 贡 献,美 术 界 人 士 更 是 经 常 提 起 他。为 了 缅 怀 追 忆 林 子 影,林 子 影 家 人 把 子 影 的 遗 作 加 以 整 理 呈 现 给 大 家,让 艺 术 爱 好 者 欣 赏 并 缅 怀 艺 术 前 辈 林 子 影,希 望 这 些 作 品 大 家 喜 欢 并 从 作 品 中 能 悟 到 中 华 水 墨 画 的 精 髓,画 家 林 子 影 是 本 地 海 派 传  承 的 领 军 人 物,他 的 作 品 非 常 值 得 收 藏。
