Mapping each and every image with millions of needle-like dots of ink, Lin (Apex) pang-soong forgoes the conventional use of shades and contours, and reconstructs lines and planes with the accumulation of tiny dots. Playing on the viewer’s natural indication to connect the individual dots into coherent images, Lin substantiates the virtuosity of his art.

Reinventing the visual technique of pointillism with elements of ink and wash, Lin Pang-soong debuts a bold new series, Invaluable Mountains, which contemplates the relation between Taiwan’s “position” and “spirit.” Lin believes, great or small is only a matter of perspective. Although Taiwan occupies a small position on the globe, Taiwan’s international presence stands large and tall. In terms of cultural diversity and innovation, Taiwan possess a great and unyielding spirit.

Constantly traveling the world, promoting Taiwan’s design on the international stage, Lin Pang-soong is a restless pioneer in the world of Taiwan’s design. However, in painting, Lin adheres to the virtues of steadfastness and perseverance. With unadorned shades of black and white, and clusters of tiny dots, Lin sweeps across the paper in a slow rhythmic trance, leaving an articulated field of meticulous ink dots, thus revealing his idealized inner world of Taiwan’s Invaluable Mountains.
