Lu Lin is dedicated to sweep away the old, tired formulaic methods of Chinese painting, be it ink or traditional acrylic/oil painting. He is almost iconoclastic in his approach to revitalise the tradition to make it relevant to today’s society. Lu Lin mines the traditional techniques of ink painting, adopts familiar techniques of impressionistic art, but alters them in ways that suit his unrestrained vision.
Lu Lin’s creations are enigmatic. The energy of each work can be felt as we observe them. The strokes in his paintings are seemingly physical manifestations of his meditative mind. In this collection, he transform the vitality of the mediums used into grand gestures and mesmerizing images, and makes his focused-energy visible to us. They are multi-faceted conversations that we are invited to be a part of.
