Christopher Lin Through careful arrangements of found objects and performative encounters, the everyday is twisted and made visceral in Christopher's sculptural and installation works. Play transforms into contemplation as he explores themes such as transience, the human condition, and environmental anxiety. His work has been exhibited around the US, recently in group shows at Flux Factory (Queens), CRUSH Curatorial (New York), and Ethan Cohen Fine Arts (New York) and in a solo exhibition at Ray Gallery (Brooklyn) in 2017. He has studied at Yale University and School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and, in 2016, he received the prestigious C12 Emerging Artist Fellowship from Hunter College where he received his MFA. www.christopherlinstudio.com
