Statement : 

Zi Ling is a visual artist based in Bristol and Bath. She was born to the Chinese painter HuiTao Lin, a pioneer of the 85 New Wave Movement. Since the age of four, she received formal training from him in drawings.

“When I am working, I believe in unconscious, allowing myself to freely during the process and enjoy any ‘accident’. I believe this ‘organic’ activity, rather than a ‘rational’ method. “

She is specialising in water-based medium experimenting with Portraiture, surrealism figurative paintings, and dance theatre project. Inspired by photography, surrealism, human anatomy and dreams. She is trying to combine figures, colour and marks with a different vision. In her works, paintings are portrait or figurative within a surreal setting, containing strong concepts of dreams, Asian tradition, fantasy and diversities. She has always been interested in applying ordinary things in an unusual context.
