Lin Guocheng, Rise of Sentient Beings

“There are things which are neither certain nor empty, which provide artists with a vast creative space where they experience moments of life and eternity in one picture, transcending the material world to cultivate their spirituality,” says Lin.

Lin Guocheng, born in 1979 in Shantou, China. Now he is working and living in Beijing.

Fascinated by the law of nature and its intriguing relationship with the modern society, artist Lin Guocheng uses ink pen to painstakingly compose mysterious landscapes of intricate and interwoven lines to decipher the order of the universe and humanity. The collection of works visualises the enigmatic relationship among all things in the universe by discovering how Lin reimagines the “great landscapes” by ancient wisdoms through the lens of modernity. The artist opens a dialogue that is at once philosophical and scientific to explore the physical world and beyond. While scientific advancement has helped human understand the world with new visions and even change the order of nature, Lin believes that all beings in nature are interrelated, and there is an inexplicable force that governs the balance of the universe, the “Qi” in Chinese tradition. He composes ever-growing landscapes with intricate curve lines that connect all things together, and integrates geometric shapes into the curvilinear structures to illustrate the interaction between modernity and nature. Synchronising his pen with the pulse of nature and his instinct, Lin Guocheng allows the lines to flow spontaneously on paper to search for his path within the indefinite order of the universe, turning his artistic practice inward and “transcending the material world to cultivate their spirituality”.
