Rhode Island Black Storytellers

The following are excerpts from Joyce Lin's proposal:

I am a visual artist, specializing in sculpture and furniture design. I utilize a diverse range of media, including wood, found objects, paints, and resins, to deconstruct and reimagine familiar furniture forms and materials. I am passionate about bridging the realms of functional design and fine art sculpture, inviting viewers to engage with my work on multiple levels.

My recent work uses the theme of wood to explore the interplay between outer appearance and internal structure and the ongoing erosion of boundaries between natural and artificial. Through my creations, I aim to provoke thought and spark conversations about the complex dynamics that emerge as our constructed environment continues to intersect with the organic world.

Though I have been making art throughout my life, I officially established my studio practice in early 2018, following the completion of dual degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University. Since then, I have been fortunate to showcase my work in renowned galleries and institutions such as R & Company in NYC, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, where I also attended an artist residency in 2019. After opening my first major solo exhibition in New York during this past Spring, I made the decision to dedicate myself full-time to my craft practice and fostering my local artistic community.

The grant funds will play a vital role in supporting the sustainability of my art practice by enabling me to invest in crucial equipment upgrades for my studio. Specifically, these funds will be allocated towards the ventilation system to effectively address the fumes and particulates generated from activities such as painting and sanding, creating a safer and healthier working environment for myself and those involved in my artistic practice.

There is no specific type of artist that we focus on or primarily support. Creative expression comes in a wide variety of artistic disciplines and genres. We are looking for passion and excellence in your craft. Tell us why your work is important to you and how you hope it will impact others.
