In his latest works for his upcoming solo exhibition Border, Liu explores division, containment and control as he transgresses between his chosen mediums and the beautiful imbalance between abstract and realism when sharing the same random grid as seen in his works titled Mirage: Acrylic & Charcoal on Rice Paper.
To better understand the title, Border, we bring attention to the works that incorporate the circle as the main focus point as viewed in his works: Unknown Planet, Chinese Ink on Rice Paper. We accurately describe the circle, the line, as the border and the content the disc. The line is fluidly executed by the hand of the artist and lacks harshness that would indicate restriction. The contents or disc display Liu’s chosen print method, Lithograph Printing, covering the colour spectrum of monochrome to low intensity blues, greens and yellows. In these works whilst we can view and interpret a border in the outline of the circle, the artist has created a seemingly revolving image through the use of depth and dimension in the area referred to as the disc.
The exhibition is presented by LUDO Gallery.
