She has participated in numerous exhibitions and has had solo exhibitions in New York City at Feature INC Gallery, Open Source Gallery and with ChaShaMa. She has been a Brooklyn Arts Council, Awesome Foundation and Pro Arts award winner. Kylin has created large scale public work during Art Basel Miami and has exhibited nationwide. In addition to her studio practice, she directs multiple initiatives, collaborations and workshops.
"My multidisciplinary work employs ancient symbolism, ritualistic repetition, transformative energy, natural and supernatural systems and the physics of space, material and process. Whether painting, building, creating installation or presenting collaborative projects, my work can be considered medicinal depending on potency, dosage and context. My projects and objects work interactively with nature, media and humanity and much of my art is impermanent, embracing transformation and realizing a full cycle of creation through dissolution. I work to tease out wonder and mindfulness, intention and serendipity, love and release, perspective and power."
