Throughout her artistic career, Lin Jingjing gives the spectator an opportunity to relate. Her works focus on the individual experience and understanding of life, providing an opportunity to share her own compassion through this lens. Existentialism permeates her work: each piece being infused with a narrative that touched her, memories from her personal life or from stories in the news.
Unique materials channel a subtle language. Forms and versatility are essential to her creativity; she constantly experiments with media, reinventing herself in executing every work. In All I Need Is Sunshine Sunshine Sunshine 1, media are mixed in an edgy contemporary manner. The scene is printed and worked with acrylic. A yellow thread enhances the contours of the human figures, directing the attention to the girl in the foreground and the male character behind. In the sky, threads in red and pink tones bear resemblance to rays of sunshine. In terms of content, paradox is the core of her language. The sewing seems to enshrine the figures as well as acting as a negative space, leaving a silhouette only at the blank canvas on the verso, in advance delineating a border on the recto. What is then the place of the self in her work, limited or enshrined? The work welcomes the viewer’s interpretation.
