Join us on Friday, October 25th for the reception for ENTROPY, featuring photographs by MFA candidate Yunqian Lin.
ENTROPY features unconventional photographic documentation of different locations along the Savannah River, from the city of Savannah towards Tybee Island. Water – in the form of a swift river, a regularly changing tide, or a calm pond – plays a central role in Lin’s work as both subject matter and creative process.
Water flow in an environment has always been cyclical and is a provider of life for plants and animals alike. Throughout her investigation, Lin studied the behavior of water and documented its movements through her work. The images are created through interactions of photosensitive materials and water, created in the environments that she photographs. Through this exploratory process, Lin has been able to develop a reliable procedure for revealing some of the properties of water and broader themes of place, time, and change. This collection of works is not only a representation of photographic subjects at a particular moment. It is also a record of an entropic exchange over an extended period of time and a means of making the invisible, visible.
Yunqian Lin is a visual artist from China, living and working in Savannah, Georgia. Currently, Lin is an MFA Candidate at The Savannah College of Art and Design. Her works are mostly experimental visual art creation. Combining photography media and natural interaction creates new possibilities.
ENTROPY is on display from October 24th – 26th, 2019 and may be seen during Sulfur Studios’ regular business hours Thursday through Saturday from noon – 5PM or by appointment.
