Linling Lu, Exhibition - VIDEO

Enjoy a behind the scenes look into the making of Linling Lu's 2020 exhibition at HEMPHILL, from the schematics and paint mixing to the final installation. 

"My work is nurtured by my Chinese heritage but is also inspired by many artists from all over the world. The work has become more universal vs. from a single perspective. I envision it being accompanied by drum-heavy music because the music is very abstract and the instrument is circular; without looking at the performance, there are many similarities to drum pieces from Africa, Native America and West Asia - it is a universal instrument and universal music.” - Linling Lu, 2020

With Her Latest Exhibition, Linling Lu Continues an Exploration of Circles and Colors

John Anderson, Washington City Paper

"Sure: We can compare her vibrating stripes to those of Davis. Yes: The circle recalls Noland. But neither of those artists were capable of capturing a deep space within their best known paintings."

"This isn’t just a Color School roundup, however: The show includes artists deploying color to completely different ends, like the trippy pattern-based work of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi, as well as some varying landscape photography artists like Anne Rowland and William Christenberry."

Kriston Capps, Washington City Paper

"Washington has for too long grappled with the legacy of the city’s brief moment in the art world’s spotlight; why shouldn’t a recently arrived painter from Guizhou Province, China?"

"'Pattern' addresses the link between ’60s abstraction and its present-day descendants by placing a 1967 work at the show’s center."
