Lu Lin’s First Singapore Solo Exhibition:

ENIGMA

28 Oct – 12 Nov, 2017 (11am to 7pm, except Monday)

at Y2ARTS Gallery . 140 Hill Street, #01-02

 

About the show

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.

NARRATION – OUTSIDER solo exhibition

at Y2ARTS Gallery . 140 Hill Street, #01-02

 

About the show:

“A painting speaks a thousand words.”

In “Narration”, Outsider literally “adopts” this saying by employing a radical abstraction and tedious technique of using texts and fonts. The spontaneous use of the “handwriting” technique is a reflection of the artist’s inhibition of conforming to tradition. The works are composed, often, of gibberish and illegible scribbling, and his free play of texts, shapes and lines come together, evolving into a sense of rhythm, pattern and meaning. It is also the artist’s metaphorical way of adding some elements of cynicism into his creations. He employs bright colours as a hint at our desire for all things new, shiny and bright; but his embedded darker narratives used in his works forces us to perceive things a little differently.

“Narration” features a unique collection that focuses on life. Believing that life is precious, Outsider takes us on a melancholic journey of how we have taken it for granted. He uses subjects and words that are simple and recognizable but presented with a distorted view; and beneath the seemingly simplicity lies a deeper theme. Extinction, solitude, stress, or materialism, are the narratives that are often used in the concept for each work.
