Chinese Contemporary Artist Long LIN
The Sorrows of Long LIN
Artist Long Lin is born in 1991 in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, China. In 2014 she created a series of works with sunflowers. Her source of inspiration was a giant sunflower which she encountered whilst walking in the botanical garden of the local university. Artist Lin was initially scared by the encounter as she feared that it might swallow her whole in a split second.
“The sunflower is like me, I often doubt myself, but I won’t give up. Every time I reflect myself through my artwork, my painting is the record, it records the conversation I had with myself. I do not need to look in the mirror to see my expression, but when I look at my art, it expresses how I felt at that time”.
