LIN Ju

The First Genre: Sacrifice and Salvation



The Study of the Sacred Treatise

The sword has been sunken for two decades
Droplets sing to frost in water
Sunlight shines into the eyes of fish
Wander beyond rivers and lakes

The Study of the Sacred No.1: Namo Worse-than-Beast Bhaisajyaraja Bodhisattva Wuhan-Wuhan Avalokitesvara

Golden threads woven into net
Weaving through darkness
Step into the Bagua Formation
All lives and flesh vanish

The Study of the Sacred No.2: Namo Golden-Feces-Jade-Urine Treasure Bucket Avalokitesvara

Dark clouds split away
From which the shadow appears and descends
The mirror reflects the mundane world
It’s but moonlight’s murderous intent

The Study of the Sacred No.3: Namo Heartless-Cruel Dakini

Marvelous flower grows out of the pond of pus
Leaning against a veil of fog
The rotten body laughs at emotions and sentiments
And sings a unintentional poem

Profile

In the real world, Lin Ju is a storyteller, a traveler in a dreamland who sometimes appears eccentric, with perhaps a bit of feigned insanity. He believes in the idea of life, with religious, even cultish passion.

The imagery of his painting depicting entities with severed limbs devouring each other, seemingly points out another way to salve his calloused soul. Often terrifying at first sight, Lin Ju’s work is permeated with a peculiar sense of mysticism and irrationalism.
