Wilson Lin is an Australian-based Abstract artist, originally born in Taiwan. His paintings have been exhibited in Taiwan and Hong Kong as well as represented in Melbourne at Thierry B Fine Art over the past five years. A student of Thierry B’s, Wilson shares studio space in Huntingdale with him, learning to focus his creativity from a Zen perspective, Buddhist in essence. The pattern-making and repetition of line in his works create a vortex and restful space for the viewer all at once. Lin’s paintings are now highly sought after and collected Australia wide and gaining notoriety internationally.
The land is portrayed both as place and as life essence. Lin's paintings are responses to the vast open spaces of the natural environment which reveal existential themes. The distant horizon line conveys the great expanse of this landscape. The expressive marks of Lin’s paintings are decorated with tiny, indispensable details of the natural world.
The paintings exhibit our emotional response and connection to the land and capture elements of textural nuance and emotive verve. The pigment appears in layers as though the colour is woven into a dense surface plane of abstraction. Skilfully executed in style, structure, and perspective the paintings convey a sense of the transcendent, they strive for meaning beyond the boundaries of logic and explore the sublime.
