Ya-Wei Lin: Visibility

Artist Statement
Visibility is an on-going series of observational photographic images that reflect and
contemplate on the meaning of the word “visibility” in the broadest sense. These images document my observations of the fleeting moments in the time-compressed urban landscape. These subtle moments might appear mundane but they are enticingly visible to me and represent the decompression of the fast pace socialization and industrialization of the urban culture. The compositional structure of these images revolves around light, shadow, silhouettes and geometric shapes – an aesthetic system that I develop to contextualize and interpret “visibility” both directly and metaphorically. For this exhibition I am presenting eleven  images from the series that I have been working on since 2016. The chosen images are mostly photographs taken in the greater Vancouver area as I hope to make relevant visible connections with the visitors of their own experiences in the city.

Artist Biography
Ya-Wei Lin’s  current creative practice focuses on photography, collage and drawing. She graduated from Emily Carr University in 2004 and have been experimenting with various artistic medium ever since. Ya-Wei Lin says that “as I evolve and develop my creative practice, I realize my core artistic interest is in the accessibility of subject matters, materials and audience. This realization leads me to explore the meaning of visibility through observational photography.”
