NEW YORK, NY.- Kasmin
welcomed Lyn Liu (b. Beijing, China, 1993) to the gallery. Lius first exhibition with Kasmin, Dogville, was mounted in 2022.
Nicholas Olney, President of Kasmin, comments: Were thrilled to release the news of Lius representation. Lyn has emerged as a singular voice in contemporary painting with a visual language all her own, coupled with a deep sense of the strangeness and uncanny beauty of the human condition in the 21st century.
Eric Gleason, Head of Sales at Kasmin, added: Seeing Lyn's work for the first time was the kind of transfixing moment one fantasizes about. Her approach to each individual painting and her practice at-large is so deeply thoughtful, so mature, so self-reflective, and so culturally-aware. It is an immense pleasure to be working with Lyn and we look forward to doing so for decades to come.
Lius work in painting and printmaking addresses the psychological tension that underpins relationships between individuals. Through a sequence of uncanny cinematic tableaux, the artist mines her own personal experiences of alienation, utilizing symbolism and an atmosphere of the absurd to provoke reflections on what Liu considers our oppressive social reality.
Lyn Liu was born in Beijing, China, and is based in New York. Liu works primarily in painting, printmaking, and independent publications. She received her MFA from School of the Arts, Columbia University, New York, in 2022, and her BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, in 2016. Liu also attended École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, from 2017 to 2020.
