A solo exhibition with Isaac Tin Wei Lin featuring works on canvas (a new direction for the artist), multiple panel cluster paintings, and a mural painted directly on a gallery wall. Lin paints calligraphic, letter-like forms that interact with a range of abstract shapes like biomorphs, lattices, and sign waves. Painting on a range of surfaces and supports, he is just as comfortable addressing a twelve-by-nine inch canvas as he is engaging the side of a thirteen-story building. Lin’s dense calligraphy—a kind of graffiti in which comprehensible lettering gives way to pure form—evoke patterns and structures found in nature, on both the macro and micro level. His abstraction brings to mind single cell organisms, entangling kudzu vines and other plants, DNA helices, and pulsating constellations all rendered in effervescing colors. While Lin’s practice is distinctly his own, his work nonetheless resonates with the history of 20th century abstraction by artists such as Juan Miro, Wassily Kandinsky, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, and Bradley Walker Tomlin.
