LIN Hui-Heng was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and graduated with Master of Fine Arts at Taipei National University of the Arts. She currently lives and works in Taipei.
Her early works used dinosaurs as symbols to illustrate relationship between humans and nature, modern social media issues, and contrast between what things look like and what they really are.
She thinks of painting as a way of prediction, where she projects her subconscious and future. Common themes of her works include humans’ memory and clues of human behaviours in literature, fairy tales, fables, and mythology.
She spent a year exploring her inner self from 2012 to 2013, analysing how external subjects influenced her mind set in creation. She won the grants from the Ministry of Culture and thus published her book, The Passing Year, Flowers & Dews, in which she revealed herself and her interaction with people on social media; an ongoing ritual of self-growth.
In 2015, she initiated the project, Exchange of Beliefs, to further expand her field research on mind set to the public. She began with questioning “what beliefs are” to explore how art related to the public and how spiritual beliefs are to people, presenting common values and diverse beliefs in modern society.
For LIN Hui-Heng, everything in her works is merely a “vessel,” no matter it’s created by chance or intention. Although they all have different appearance, they form a greater dream in the world together through internal flow of divinity whilst she finds peace and harmony within those objects and figures the relationship between herself and the world. 房號：2018
