‘’Jazz Paintings’’ Painting Exhibition of Lavia Lin @ Backhaus Projects 5. August-11. August 2022
Imagining music-with organic shapes, rhythmic lines and melodic flows of colours intertwined in the form of abstraction. It is a world of dancing colours, where music is visible and colours have sounds. ‘Jazz Paintings’’ is an exhibition of a painter’s love affair with music, an exhibition, which in its purest sense is a celebration of music and art. Welcome to Lavia’s world, where she puts her sensuous experience of listening to music and her personal interpretations onto the canvas, each painting is a reflection of the imaginations, emotions and memories triggered by music.
Big Berry Duo Concert 10. August Door 7pm Concert 7:30pm Big Berry Duo, with Omri Abramov (soprano sax, effects, compositions) and Tal Yadin (acoustic guitar, effects, compositions).
About the artist & musicians:
Lavia Lin is a Berlin-based abstract painter and live painting performance artist from Shanghai, China. She came to Berlin in 2014 to pursue her studies in the arts, and has been working as a freelance artist and arts & cultural manager since 2021. Lavia’s art can be described as atmospheric abstract art, that are often blue-toned and inspired by music.
Growing in the family-owned Bar House of Blues & Jazz in Shanghai, her sensitive ears have been beautifully toned up by the musical surroundings. Music, especially jazz became Lavia’s subject and inspiration. Without former musical training, she’s able to perceive the music emotionally without technical interpretation. Since 2017, she has started an ongoing project “Jazz paintings” dedicated to some of the jazz standards she enjoys. She has performed and collaborated with international musicians in which she paints during their live concerts and put colours to their music.
