The Korn Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Re-Drawn by artist Cynthia Lin.

Cynthia Lin uses painting, drawing, digital and lithographic processes to alternate between mapping and improvisation.

Hyper-detailed images of skin, orifices and scars, acquired through direct computer scans of the body, become sites for excavation: a variety of approaches are used, including hand-drawn, digital, and lithographic techniques. Applied to large scale, these processes become unpredictable, thus alternately reinforcing recognition and introducing alternative interpretation. Multiple, ongoing translations, supported by representational and digital structures, intertwine the familiar, subconscious, and irreconcilable.

Cynthia Lin was born in Taiwan and grew up near Chicago, Illinois. She currently lives in New York and works in Brooklyn. Cynthia Lin was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts Finalist in Printmaking/Drawing/Book Arts in 2014 and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2006. She has shown at Lehmann Maupin Gallery, Yossi Milo Gallery, DeCordova Museum, Pierogi Gallery, Garis & Hahn Gallery, Michael Steinberg Gallery, The National Academy of Design, The Drawing Center, Weatherspoon Art Museum and Kentler International Drawing Space. Her work is in collections at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Dallas Museum of Art. Fellowships include The Brown Foundation Fellows Program at the Dora Maar House in Menerbes, France, as well as Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, The Space Program at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation, Blue Mountain Center, Djerassi Resident Artists Program, and the Visiting Artists and Scholars Program at the American Academy in Rome.

She is Assistant Professor and Area Coordinator of Painting + Drawing at Purchase College, SUNY.

The Korn Gallery is located in the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts at Drew University and is open Tuesday through Friday 12:30-4:00 PM, selected weekends and by appointment.
