The works by Lin Jingjing explore the depths of social and personal identity in the context of modern society, often examining themes such as confusion and quest, existence and absence, constraint and resistance. Running through all her pieces there is a questioning of identity, how we define ourselves, and how the effects of the outside world, such as other, culture, politic, history and economy fall upon on us. Her works span performance, installation, painting, mixed media and video. In her works, she layers thread over painting, installation and mixed media, creating a dazzling world. The surreal effect created via this method immerses the viewer into another consciousness; the figures that have been stitched over in the canvases become motifs for any individual, including the viewer. Lin Jingjing raises questions on the ground of paradox, this means that in considering her works, one also begins to questions one's own emotional reaction to the theme in question.
Lin’s works have been the subject of solo exhibitions: Take Off, de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong (2017); Tomorrow Was Wonderful, de Sarthe Gallery, Beijing, China (2015); Promise Again for the First Time, de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong (2014); Possible of Impossible, Neues Kunstforum, Cologne, Germany (2012); The Method Of Paradox, Museo sin muros - Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Mall Plaza Vespucio, Santiago, Chile (2011); Rose Rose, Museo sin muros - Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Mall Plaza Trebol, Concepción, Chile (2011).
