Studying traditional Chinese brush painting techniques from the age of four, Lin never
stopped her interest in painting. Later, in Belgium, she broadened her creative
impulses to include not only painting but also sculpture, installation and design. Lin
explains her natural predilection to cross artistic boundaries, as an expression of her
desire to reach out, and to engage more freely and with greater immediacy, with her
Her painting practice, like her design work, aims at developing her own distinct
approach. Nominally abstract, with a preference for combining colors and forms
inspired by nature, Lin uses hand-applied layers of paint, to fill the canvas surface.
Each canvas is covered with free flowing color, shapes, and forms, applied with varying
tools and techniques, defying the rigidity of realistic painting and traditional paradigms.
Instead, she demonstrates a great panoply of techniques, together across one canvas,
where colors are skilfully presented in an array of thickly applied, scraped, brushed,
and thinly washed alternating painterly applications. Her enjoyment in and active engagement with painting is palpable across her latest artworks.
