Over the past several months, I have had the wonderful opportunity to get to know the artist Lin Yan. We first connected in the beginning stages of the exhibition New York Beijing Here There at the Yuan Art Museum which opened on October 24th, 2013 (her birthday), spending many afternoons in each others’ studios discussing our work and our process. It has been extremely amazing to get to know her and to be a part of the same show. I’m looking forward to showing with her again in May at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. Thanks for all that you have done, Lin!
