Linling Lu is best known for her hard-edge, circular abstract paintings with concentric rings of color. Her human-scale tondos have been described as inducing states of meditation. Lu’s work also includes minimalist sculptures of interlocking wood blocks, shaped paintings and sewn fabric collages.

Linling Lu’s large scale painting compositions are included in Fields and Formations, A Survey of Mid-Atlantic Abstraction, curated by Kristen Hileman. The 12-artist group exhibition recently travelled from The Delaware Contemporary Museum to American University Museum and remains open through May 22, 2022.

Linling Lu: Musical Meditations, a solo show (Feb19 - June 5,2022) opened at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, the area's premier destination for fine art, contains a series of paintings created from 2019 to the present, many of which were composed during the two-year period of the ongoing pandemic. Lu views these works as a means of “healing from the chaos and uncertainty of life.” Lu’s large, circular canvases pulsate with color and invite viewers to reflect on their own memories and connections with music.

Lu’s work was included in public and private collections nationally and internationally such as Microsoft Art Collection, Capital One headquarters, City Center DC, Hall Arts Hotel, and the permanent collection of Embassy of The United States of America in Beijing among a group of artists include Cai Guo-Qiang, Maya Lin, Betty Woodman, Xu Bing, Jeff Koons and Fred Tomaselli.

Linling Lu earned a BFA in painting from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2008 and a MFA from the Hoffberger School of Painting, MICA in 2011 with honor.

The artist currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
