Catalogue of Lin Yan's solo exhibition at China 2000 Fine Art in 2006. 'Lin Yan was born in 1961 in Beijing, China. A graduate of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, she pursued graduate studies at the Ecole National Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and received a Masters in Art from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania before settling in New York. In the metaphoric space between China and the West, Lin Yan installs artistic creations that convey a genetically inspired and uniquely layered perception of the Western artistic mode into which she thrust herself. She melds her multiple influences, welding past and present, East and West, to create an artistic vocabulary suitable to her own purposes. Her terms extend formal constraints and defy traditional expectations for the materials she uses.' - extracted from introduction by Karen Wender. The catalogue includes interview with the artist by Scott R. Ritter.
