Lin Hai Rong
Born in Heilongiiang in 1975, Lin Hai Rong graduated from Fine Arts Department of Henan Normal University. She later gained a post graduate degree from Sichuan Fine Arts lnstitute. As a winner of the prize for excellence in the Dragonair Emerging Artist Awards, Lin Hairong has continuously earned international attention. Lin Hairong's paintings portray a profound sense of peace. She especially manages well the compositions in her paintings in order to create the serenity and harmony of life. Most of Lin Hairong's works are based on flat painting, depicted in subdued tone. Lin is fond of creating a hazy mood and very often both the characters and the backgrounds are painted with great detailsso soft, feminine and delicate. Her paintings are often shown in a variety of poses with influences from culturalrevolutionary image and other Chinese and western historical sources. Lin's world is full of gentle humour, her playfulness and energy is revealed through her child-like figures with their distinctive small and slanted eyes.
I am the worst commentator on my own paintings. Painting is a part of my life or at the very least an emotional outlet. Life, hobbies, recreations, friends, old memories...Things that I see, feel, miss, and hope for are the inspiration of my paintings.
Lin Hairong is a young and recognized female artist with great potentials, known for painting Chinese women in a simple background. We particularly appreciate her precise use of lines and colours.
