About the artwork
The blurry contour of the bodies in this painting emulates a calm strength, one that allows others to feel the expressions of humanity contained within the canvas. With no facial features visible the figures are enigmatic, allowing us to contemplate it and create our own interpretations of their identity. The work is highly textured, with the sweeping strokes of Liu’s brushstroke clearly visible, instilling a sense of life and energy within it. Liu piously layers paint upon layers on the already wet canvas, in order to create the unique texture, through which he expresses the weight that is present in the depth of his heart.
