Description — Click to read

Using anonymous historical photographs as the subject matter of her painting and prints, Liu reconstructs an unknown story. She embellishes the surfaces with lovely drawings of insects, flowers and birds, painterly drips and collage elements that create a veil of time and meaning over her subjects. "...between dissolving and preserving is the rich middle-ground where the meaning of an image is found... My paintings are metaphors for memory and history.”
