Isn’t It Too Pretty?

Can a picture be too pleasing? Why is pure visual pleasure so often regarded as suspect by the advocates of serious art? These are some of the questions raised by the abstract paintings of Fanyu Lin, an emerging artist who presents her flowing gestural compositions as part of a holistic way-of-being. Equal parts therapeutic artist, writer, architect, Lin melds the ancient Chinese notion of the artist as sage with the historic Western model of the artist as engaged community member—thereby creating her own surprisingly up-to-date aesthetic. Is her work “merely decorative,” as skeptics in the Modernist and Postmodernist vein might contend? Or does her art offer a richly conflicted but ultimately reassuring response to contemporary issues, both social and individual? These questions and more will be addressed by Lin in her public conversation with art critic Richard Vine and entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist Fei Bo.
