Oliver Lin ( Lin Chin Lin )
     Bio         Exhibitions:   Gaze Into Life - Returning

Early this year the external and literal recognitions of the connotations of 'GAZE INTO LIFE' fully internalized to invigorate my vital awareness. Infused with this profound, death-affirming awakening, my recent works mirror the vivid flamboyancy of Paradise, in counterpoint with a persistent hesitancy in crossing and re-crossing the borders. This frontier is the setting for my deepest contemplation.

The metaphor of music has been a strong influence in the history of Abstractionism, and I am musical by nature. Thus, the 'abstract' provides a lexicon by which to enter the realm of my works.From a piece composed for a string trio, trace the melody of violin, viola and violoncello respectively, or see them simultaneously as a whole. Likewise, follow the layered movement of lines or floating colors to hear the dynamics of syncopation and the moment of transcendence at the frontier of perception. Sustained exploration in this metaphoric space opens into limitless depths in which to encounter spiritual images that are at once universal and mysteriously personal. (photo credit: Wilson Wang)
