Steenbock Gallery to Open Ting-Li Lin Exhibit
“Decomposing” exhibition breaks down complex architecture
through black and white photography.
“Decomposing,” an exhibit featuring photographs by Ting-Li Lin, will be on display January 4, 2012 to February 3, 2012 in the Steenbock Gallery. An artist’s reception will take place on Friday, January 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. The Steenbock Gallery is located at the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters, 1922 University Ave., and is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
“The purpose of decomposition, in general, is to break a complex idea into small, easy-understood concepts,” says Ting-Li Lin. Instead of perceiving the world as a whole, I find it fascinating to just look at the elements of it, and thus the creation of the Decomposing series. In this series, I applied the idea of decomposition to architecture photography. Not only do I pay attention to the forms and shapes of the interior of buildings, I also choose the light sources carefully so that the interior is luminous in a certain way.”
