Xin Lian is a Chinese-American artist who utilizes the process of imprinting to bind the duality of a perpetually fluxing world: the pitfulness of temporality and the joy of emergence. Through a repetitive process of layering and erasing, the residue of each layer creates a record of time where moments become unattainable, and inseparable from one another. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her works have exhibited at CICA Museum in Gimpo, Museum of FIT in New York, M. David & Co. Gallery in Brooklyn, and Amos Eno Gallery in Brooklyn.
