Xin Lian is a Chinese-American artist who utilizes mark-making as an act to reflect on the state of perpetual flux and the traces of extinct events and energy. Through a repetitive process of layering and reduction, the traces of each layer create a sense of simultaneity that is difficult to fully grasp, like how events arise and dissipate simultaneously in the universe. 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. She currently resides and works in New York.
