Treading on Soft Shadows | 2019 Lin Hong-Wen Solo Exhibition
While looking at Lin Hong-Wen’s painting, viewer could sense tangible forms or faint light and airy lines. But to Lin Hong-Wen, all pictures are spaces in which he switches the real and unreal around and ducks into his own world via the trivial crack from time to time.
Lin Hong-Wen (b.1961~) is always known for his abstract expressionism of painting. His works are bright, pure and rich in poetic abstractionism, unpredictability and unlimited possibilities. No matter what art form he works in, he has established his personal styles. The form of artistic creation is only a communication interface between an artist and the outside world. Lin’s rhetoric of abstractionism is always present, latent but powerful, in all types of his works. Such rhetoric is the result of his spiritual accumulation and refinement over the years.
