Light of Tibet
Paintings by Lin Yuan
6 July-31 July 2012Lin Yuan’s latest series of paintings features the landscape and monasteries of Tibet, the result of several long journeys to the high plateau.
The artist uses broad brushstrokes of thick layers of paint to capture the sweep of the landscape and heavy mass of the buildings.
A first-time visitor to Tibet is immediately struck by the intensity of the light, and Lin Yuan depicts this particularly well, the brilliant blue sky contrasting with the ochre and whitewash of the buildings.
Lin Yuan is an eclectic artist in terms of subject matter, his previous exhibitions at Zee Stone Gallery have been of miniature nudes and urban scenes.
