Dennis Lin is a Taiwanese-Canadian artist and a graduate of the Ontario Collage of Art (OCAD).
Lin is concerned with patterns of consumption, the sustainability of the human population given these patterns, and the earth’s threshold to maintain them. These concerns are reflected in the way Lin pushes the physical thresholds of the woods and metals that compose his sculptures.
Lin’s preoccupation with sustainability is reflected in his process. In his solar energy powered studio, when there is waste from the production of larger works it is kept, used, and reused to create or power new pieces and projects. His sculptures range in size from the monumental to the handheld, and his work can be found in public and private collections internationally.
