Lulu Lin Exhibit at Bisong Art Gallery
Lulu and Lin started collaborating after meeting at Rice University, where Lulu double majored in art and architecture, and Lin doubled in art and biochemistry. They develop studies and sketch collaboratively, often painting their final pieces in tandem, simultaneously working on different areas of the painting. Their backgrounds led them to create artwork that lies at the intersection of several contrasting disciplines.
Lulu Lin’s current series, inspired by concepts and scientific properties of liquids, looks at knowledge traditionally viewed as data through an artistic lens to create poetic and alluring paintings. Lulu Lin humanizes these scientific concepts through the familiar yet subtly strange atmosphere of their paintings. The images are highly rendered with loosely defined stories that are open to interpretation – essentially giving viewers an opportunity to escape their world and step into one crafted by the artists.
