About the artwork
Liu focuses on portraits, most of them featuring sculptured torsos or busts. They possess a wide range of emotions, from frustrations to passion, and each figure can be linked to a distinctive background that is easily recognizable as his unique style. They are immune from reference to others. One is unable to discern any straightfor- ward meaning from Liu’s leaden background and painted bodies that possess seemingly simple contours.
