New York (April 30, 2009) – Robert Steele Gallery is proud to present new paintings and drawings by artist Kay H. Lin from May 14 through June 13, 2009.  Ms. Lin graduated with a BFA from the National Institute of the Arts in Taiwan with a major in Painting and minor in Printmaking.  She also earned a Masters degree from New York University with a major in Painting and minor in Multimedia.  For the past 20 years, Ms. Lin has lived and worked in New York.  Her technically rich and spiritually engaging works take their place as a unique voice that crosses boundaries to unite Western and Eastern influences.  Her works have been collected in Asia, Europe and in the U.S.


In this exhibition, Ms. Lin  presents ten large acrylic and oil paintings entitled "Endless" capturing the sequence of the four seasons, year after year, as with life.   The paintings are on canvas scrolls and were created together with original Chinese poems written in calligraphy.  Both bold and original, these scrolls extend up to 15 feet either vertically or horizontally with a dramatic expanse of gesture and movement.  Together with the poems, these works immerse the viewer into the dreams of the seasons.


Ms. Lin’s paintings capture an ongoing dialogue between the Eastern aesthetic sensibilities of her classical training and modern Western abstraction.   Thematically, Ms. Lin’s paintings are at the interface of thought and emotion, examining logic, creation, life and inspiration.  A distinctive visual language demonstrates an adept touch with color and a fully developed command of materials.  Ms. Lin's poetry re-interprets the feeling and philosophy of real life with musical rhythm and melody, as do her artworks.
