Interview: Lin Baixue
Luca Curci
 talks with Lin Baixue during VISIONS, first appointment of CANVAS CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Lin Baixue is a young artist. During her eight years of standard art study in China, she developed an interest in European art. She came to Europe at the age of 18, eager to perfect her oil painting skills, and studied oil painting in Italy, home to the most important artists of the Renaissance. She first completed a first-level degree in oil painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, Italy. During her studies, she developed an interest in printmaking. She then pursued a two-year second-level degree focusing on printmaking techniques. In 2022, Lin moved to the Netherlands. During this time, she developed a passion for abstract painting and started to experiment with different materials and techniques. She has since developed a unique style of abstract painting, combining traditional Chinese painting techniques with modern abstract painting.

Luca Curci – Which artists have somehow had an influence on your work?
Lin Baixue – Kandinsky’s art has had a great influence on me. One of the pioneers of abstract art, Kandinsky’s work challenged conventional notions of representation, exploring the power of color, form, and composition to evoke emotion and convey meaning. Thanks to my cultural background, I also draw inspiration from Chinese landscape painting, especially through the composition of Chinese brush ink and lines to create a sense of flow and movement.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
LB –
I studied for a first-class degree in oil painting at the Naples Academy of Fine Arts, where I honed my skills and deepened my understanding of classical painting techniques. During my studies, I was exposed to printmaking and was fascinated by the unique possibilities it offered. I decided to further my knowledge of printmaking techniques by pursuing a two-year secondary degree. After finishing my studies, I moved to the Netherlands where I live now. It was during this time that I developed a passion for abstract painting and my artistic path took a new direction. I started experimenting with different materials and techniques, exploring the boundaries of abstraction, and pushing the limits of my creativity. To create my monotype prints, I draw images on acrylic panels using brushes, ink and oil paints. This technique captures the fluidity of water and creates a sense of movement in my work. My art style is abstract and subjective, using raw and natural forms to convey the essence of the natural world without exhaustively depicting it. In my works, I draw inspiration from Chinese landscape painting, especially through the composition of brush ink and lines to create a sense of flow and movement.

LC – How do you choose your subjects? Is it a reasoned or an instinctive process?
LB –
From an early age, I developed a deep appreciation for nature in all its forms. The beauty of the natural world has always captured my imagination and fueled my artistic instincts. It is natural for me to conduct research in the field of natural landscapes, exploring various means of artistic expression to capture the essence of natural wonders. Marvel at the intricate detail of plants, animals, and natural elements. This deep connection to nature inspires me to study it more closely and understand its mysteries from an artistic point of view. I delved into natural landscapes, learning about their different elements such as light, color, texture, and composition. I also experiment with various mediums, techniques, and styles to express natural variation and variety in my work. I find solace and inspiration in the natural world, and it becomes a source of inspiration for my creations.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
LB –
Through my artistic creations, I aim to convey my deep reverence for the natural world, while also expressing my own sense of wonder and curiosity about it. I use abstract techniques to capture the essence of nature in a way that allows the viewer to interpret and connect with the artwork in their own unique way. By using abstract forms, colors, and textures, I strive to create a visual language that transcends the physical aspects of the natural world and taps into the emotional and spiritual dimensions of our existence. I want my artworks to serve as a catalyst for introspection and reflection, inviting the viewer to pause and contemplate our place in the larger landscape of the natural world.
Through my art, I seek to instill a sense of awe and reverence for nature, encouraging viewers to reconnect with the environment and appreciate

LC – How do you feel when you see your work completed?
BL – When I complete a satisfactory work, I will feel a sense of happiness and accomplishment.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
LB –
The theme of the exhibition is “Vision”, which is very suitable for the expression of my works. The theme of my works is the abstract expression of natural landscapes. I use raw forms and abstract visual expressions in my work to simplify my subjects and capture the essence of the natural world, showcasing the majesty of mountains, rivers, black peaks and rushing streams. My work presents mountains, trees, and other natural elements in a dreamlike abstract style. I reflect on the fragility of our environment and explore the beauty inherent in its complexity. By creating these pieces, I honor the natural world while expressing my own wonder and curiosity, inviting the viewer to pause, reflect and contemplate our place in the larger landscape.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the exhibition or as a part of preexisting works?
LB – The works on display are part of an existing body of work that reflects my current artistic style and vision.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
LB –
Yes, I think ITSLIQUID GROUP is an arts organization that provides opportunities for artists to exhibit their work and participate in events, it is beneficial for artists who are looking for exposure and opportunities to display their work, and provides a way to connect with a wider audience.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?

The ITSLIQUID GROUP’s initiatives and events help foster a supportive environment for emerging artists, providing them with valuable opportunities to showcase their talents and develop.
