Statement

Kay H. Lin 

Kay H. Lin is an abstract painter. Her technically rich and spiritually engaging works take their place as a unique voice that crosses boundaries to unite Western and Eastern influences.

Ms. Lin’s paintings capture an ongoing dialogue between the Eastern aesthetic sensibilities of her classical training and modern Western abstraction. Thematically, Ms. Lin’s works are like poetry, at the interface of thought and emotion exploring logic, creation, life and inspiration. A distinctive visual language demonstrates an adept touch with color and a fully developed command of materials. Ms. Lin's artwork re-interprets the feeling and philosophy of life with musical rhythm and melody, as a form of poetry.

For the past 20 years, Ms. Lin has lived and worked in New York. She graduated with a BFA from the Taiwan National University of the Arts with a major in Painting and minor in Printmaking. She also earned a Masters degree from New York University with a major in Painting and minor in Multimedia. Her works have been shown in the Chelsea Art Museum, Taipei Cultural Center, Kuandu Museum in Taipei, Frost Art Museum in Miami, Moscow Museum of Modern Art and collected throughout Asia, Europe and the U.S.
