What Do You See?

 

 

I am Lin Lin Hu, currently a resident permaculture practitioner and artist at Liberty Advance Healing And Retreat Center in Boulevard, East of San Diego, California. 

Born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan, my family is a mixture of Taiwanese, Hakkanese, Cantonese and Japanese hence cultural diversity comes easy to me. Before moving to the United States, I was a Chinese history major at National Taiwan University; I picked up art outside of the school system by learning from an artist at her studio every Sunday from age 10-16, but I never had a formal academic art training. I love cultural studies, philosophy and arts in general, so I later decided to learn all of above from the perspective of a western country in order to expand my awareness about the world. 

I came to San Francisco to study at Academy of Art University; and upon graduation from the art school, I launched myself in the textile design industry. I have worked for home textile companies for 15 years as designer and art director. In 2014, I decided to become a full-time artist. Textile design was my chosen career path because I am naturally drawn to the aesthetics of traditional heirloom fabric. Painting, however, is my soul's calling. It’s my doorway, my key, to open myself up to receive higher inspirations. I interpret my inner journey as an observer of light onto the surface through the movement of colors and brushstrokes. 

My art is inspired by The Source Energy of the cosmos and within each of us. I think Light is the most magnificent manifestation of that energy and everything reflects or resonates with it as its own unique color sequences and characters. The dance between light and shadow fascinates me. Since childhood I grew up with odd eyesight; with -10.0 myopia vision I see everything blurry. I used to think it would be an obstacle for me to be an artist, but now I consider it a blessing in disguise. I naturally see colors without fixating them within the refined shapes, in everything, like the objects having a glowing aura. Now with corrected vision I see clearly, but I yearn to reveal my true vision in art. From realistic styles to loose strokes to just patterns, my style evolves as I grow less serious about the perceived reality. As a natural artist and painter, I have a desire and mission to celebrate the beauty of the life force, the light, and the Nature in a personal way of how I see the world.

I see beauty, I see happiness, and I see love. I simply want to emphasize what I see onto artwork and serve my audience with positive feelings that resonate within them. I don't have specific subject matters (although Nature is always my favorite muse) nor do I stay with any specific art movement. I like to go with the flow and paint what inspires me at the moment. Art is my personal journey into knowing myself, my truth, so it has to change with me. I am an artist who has no known style statement, but that's the statement I make - I am honest, and I welcome changes.

In 2016 I encountered some brilliant teachers from Permaculture field and fell in love with the practice. Now I am taking my art into the next level - to create living art that regenerates life, and to bring endless vitality and abundance into our daily reality. I use my previous training in design industry as a tool to present these ideas and visions onto maps and presentations, so they can be realized, understood and implemented; however, the core of the design comes from my spiritual alignment with the source and our beautiful, all-providing and all-nourishing Gaia - Planet Earth, where we call home. Recently I had acquired my certificate as a permaculture designer at Regenerate Design Institute, in Bolinas, California, and moved to Liberty Advance, a yoga retreat and healing center in the Great San Diego Area, CA as the resident to bring my dreams and excitements to my physical reality.
