 Lin Hsin-yueh: Magical Light and Shadow in Nature

Lin Hsin-yueh is a very special person in Taiwan’s art scene. He has been deeply involved in the field of painting creation for more than 50 years and committed to his own path the whole time, using an exuberance of creativity to demonstrate humanistic care and cultural beliefs in a style of his own. He is also a prolific art critic and history commentator, who has been employing his strongly critical and sharp writings since the 1980s to express his own unique insights into history, as well as to sound suggestions related to Taiwan’s art development and cultural affairs. As someone with multiple identities, including as an art educator and curator, he has been an active figure in many important events in the Taiwanese art world since the 1990s. In 2010, when Lin crossed into his 70s, he once again felt the urge to turn a new page in his creative career. Determined to overcome his body’s many ailments, he has challenged himself to create paintings of extraordinarily large sizes, and has displayed lofty aspirations despite his age.

Born in Taichung in 1939, Lin graduated from the Department of Fine Arts at National Taiwan Normal University in 1965. Developing a surrealist style constructed with a mysterious atmosphere, he created a poetic realm of bleakness and solitude to echo the melancholy and depression in the hearts of those in Taiwanese society from the post-war period to the 1980s. His creative approach gradually transitioned from surreal fantasy to the theme of the realistic landscape of Taiwan in the mid-1980s. In the late 1980s, the artist began to travel through Taiwan’s mountains, streams, and coasts, as he completed a series of creations based on Taiwan’s natural beauty. Magnificent mountains, soaring waterfalls, and wild streams are a metaphor for the surging of the life energy of Taiwanese people after the end of martial law. The natural landscape under Lin’s brush have always had a rich and vigorous atmosphere. Using acute observations of Taiwan’s scenery made by his artist’s eye, no matter whether it is the color, light, expression or ideological connotation, all have a kind of emotionally penetrating warmth and stability that can infiltrate the body and mind and inscribe his profound feelings about Taiwan as his life-giving motherland.

The exhibition presents a painstaking observation and interpretation of the theme of “nature” that infuses Lin’s lifetime of painting. Brilliant works from every stage of the artist’s life can allow deep understanding of how Lin deploys scenery as a text, reflecting the local reality and humanistic pulse of Taiwan through a special angle exclusive to him personally. The importance of this exhibition lies in the fact that it has assembled Lin’s captivating large-scale creations of recent years. The epic grandeur of these works is shaped by their sheer size, shape structure, light and shade, and magnificent colors. Through the majestic views in these paintings, the audience can feel the charm of the Taiwanese landscape under the painter’s brush, as well as feel the power of the times in these images of his motherland as seen through his eyes.
