Residency Date: June – August, 2010
Drawing, cutting, and pasting is Liu’s daily routine. The interaction between hands and materials conveys his life experience. He locates himself in strange images, discovering new wonders in commonplace photo images and objects. The artist tries to choose an unusual path and intends to create possibilities for unlimited imagination. His work reveals the folk art atmosphere of the paper cutting skill.
