Catalogue Note

“Works from Liu’s Paris period show the influence of Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin in aspects of the Post-impressionist pictorial interests – expressiveness of burhs strokes, imposing presence of forms, and flattening and merging of planes to construct colour blocks… [Other works] manifest [a] Fauvist sensitivity toward colour, form and design although the basic approach appears to be narrative… [His works] also show a thickening of outlines in defining object and spaces – suggesting an affiliation with the linear brush quality of Chinese ink painting.” -  Kwok Kian Chow1
