CYNTHIA LIN
Cynthia Lin's monumental "skin" drawings are currently on view in "Drawn to Detail" at the DeCordova Museum until January 4, 2009.

Cynthia Lin explores the conflicting experiences of psychological discomfort and visual fascination by creating magnified drawings and paintings of pores, hair, orifices and dust. The devotion to detail in her work intensifies and prolongs the act of looking, revealing how the mundane and familiar can be remarkable and strange. Among the prizes recently awarded to Lin include a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, Yaddo Visual Artist Fellowship, The MacDowell Colony Visual Artist Fellowship, The Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation/SPACE Program Fellowship, Djerassi Resident Artists Program/Visual Artists Fellowship and the Visiting Artists and Scholars Program at the American Academy in Rome. She has exhibited widely in New York and in the U.S.
