Walking My Own Path, A State of Being –
The Art of Lin Pang-soong at 60
In 2007 Lin (Apex) Pang-soong was awarded the National Award of Arts in the Fine Arts category, as the youngest recipient of the category, as well as the first designer in the award’s history. In his early years, Lin’s choice of vocation was a different path, and he recalls, “it was not an easy path, but it allowed me to see a different perspective in life; and because those who went down this path are few, I have the good fortune of being recognized.”
At halfway to a hundred, Lin met a fork in the road and shifted more time and energy towards his painting, which was another different path, and also one of great change. His success in the field of design plays both positive and negative roles on his art; he is driven by his reputation, which can sometimes be a burden. Fortunately, he has the spirit of the sea, in which “the sea encompasses a hundred rivers, it is great because of its capacity,” thereby encouraging him to forge another path.
Since his youth, Lin Pang-soong firmly walked his own path. From design to painting, he found endless inspiration and the sense of belonging in his native land. Like steady continuous drops of water piercing through stone, Lin’s adherence to his approach to painting, is in itself a form of art. So in faceing his art, Lin is free and at ease, and through the thousands of intricately placed dots, the viewer captures a glimpse into Lin’s state of being.
