SHERMAN LIN

Unbound Perspectives
August 26 – September 15, 2016
Reception: Thursday, September 1, 2016 6-8 PM

Born in Sihui, China in the province of Guangdong, Canadian citizen Sherman Lin studied at the Central Academy of Arts and Crafts in Beijing, where he graduated in 1982. Originally inspired by teachers and local artists, Lin describes Chinese ink painting and traditional writing as “the cultural gene” within his work. Over time, he began to explore new aesthetics, blending his artistic heritage with Western techniques. Lin sees this exploration as a form of evolution, bringing him closer to a true expression of his inner self.

Lin’s blending of East and West is most evident in his choice of materials, which pairs traditional Chinese rice paper with acrylic paints. The geometric shapes dominating his paintings are roughly filled with color, taking on a distressed look. Lin’s current series, titled “Falling Mountains,” is an ode to nature, a first step in his mission of connecting the spiritual and the natural via a “celestial ladder.” When asked what significance art holds in this attempt at communication, Lin is eager to respond: “Art is the expression of humanity’s purest love.”
