June 5th – July 4th, 2021.
Haven Gallery is pleased to present “Dark Moon”, a collection of new paintings from Hong Kong based artist Ling Ly. The work of Ling Ly is a symbolic reflection of intimacy and personal moments amidst the human condition. Each oil painting is a symphony of color and brushstroke that cultivates the artists inner voice and reflection during times of solitude and internal contemplation. With a painterly approach, Ling captivates and translates the inner turmoil of oneself’s multifaceted emotions. An eternal ocean of color and movement can be found in her details, highlighting the mighty microcosm of sentience and the many complexities of our individuality.
Artist Statement on “Dark Moon”:
It is said that dark moon energy encourages personal growth; a powerful time to connect with your shadows. This phrase of the moon is “A time of rest, meditation, deep introspection, soul searching and contemplation. A time to banish, bind, and balance.
ABOUT LING LY
Ling Ly was born in a small rural village in China and spent her teenage years in Hong Kong. She attended the Art Center College of Design, and graduated with a BFA in Illustration in 2013. After completing her degree, she moved back to Hong Kong and has been living there ever since. Her inspiration comes from herself, her life and experiences.
I am someone who doesn’t feel I belong anywhere. I would say I live my life pretty spiritually most of the time, often alone and with self activities. Therefore, something is always coming from my inner world, instead of the location, circumstance or reality etc. around me.
