Lin Chunyan: Second Spring
Guest curator Geoff Raby
26 Sep - 2 Nov
“Lin has been a prominent figure in the Beijing contemporary art scene for the past thirty years, but his relentlessly honest and individually expressive work has defied categorization. He has stood apart from the main movements of the Beijing art scene. Refusing to be influenced by fashions of the day, he has continued to explore a highly personal emotional world through his painting.”
"Lin has long been captivated by the intrinsic beauty of the natural world. His works are not realist, naturalist, depictions, although they are intricate compositions, but rather like the best of portraiture, he draws out a deeper essence. It is as if Lin is seeing beyond the surface of his flowers, plants, trees into another dimension of their beauty."
