What There Looks Like is Malaysia-based Taiwanese artist Liu Hsin-Ying’s (b.1991) first solo exhibition in Singapore. The exhibition showcases a series of paintings in which the artist captures ephemerality in nature, reality and the human body. Liu subjects herself into these themes without preconception, instead, contemplates and instantaneously transcribes emotions, thoughts and forms on canvas through masses of strokes and line drawings paired with cognitive use of colors. The viewer is invited to ponder over suggestive figures of trees, mountains, grass, sea, sky & wind – a visual vocabulary the artist employs to express primal passion, sensuality and sexuality as a human, a woman and a mother. The canvas offers a window into the ongoing consonance of the artist and her subject matter. The lack of focal points and lines of perspective that address the shifting nature of these realms, overlapping identities of subjects and fleeting gaze come together to present this series of colour frenzy and line reverie.
