In her sculpture and drawing, Lin merges rational order with notions of beauty. Blurring boundaries between two- and three-dimensional space, Lin sets up a systematic ordering of the landscape tied to history, time, science and language.
The 2014 recipient of the Gish Prize for her contributions to art and social change, Lin has been the subject of solo museum exhibitions and created outdoor installations for public and private collections from New York to New Zealand. She is at work on her final memorial, What is Missing?, raising awareness about habitat loss and biodiversity. Born in 1959, Lin holds degrees from Yale and the Yale School of Architecture. She has been represented by Pace since 2008.
