The Sixth Day
by Gallery Exit
Location: Gallery Exit
Artist(s): LIN Xue
Date: 18 Feb - 21 Mar 2011

Gallery EXIT is pleased to announce The Sixth Day, the second solo exhibition of Lin Xue with the gallery. For this exhibition, Lin will present 4 new sets of drawings and a major landscape rendition which he worked on for 11 months. His studies of plants and organisms will also be exhibited for the first time. The working title pays homage to the utopian state recorded in the biblical creation story prior to the Fall, as seen in the center triptych. It renders an island growing out of the sea towards the sky and life forms emerging from within. His meticulous drawings provide an insight into the mechanics of growth and decay in nature.
The exhibition will also include a collaborative project of drawing and polaroid between Lin Xue and Caroline Chiu made in 2010.
Lin Xue currently lives and works in Hong Kong. He is an avid hiker and has a commanding knowledge of the hills in Hong Kong. Lin first exhibited in the Manulife Young Artists Series 1995 and the Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition 1998. He then spent a decade away from the public and studied his surroundings. He recently began work on a panoramic epic.

Opening Reception: Friday, 18 February 2011, 6 - 8 pm
