Liu Guofu - In Praise of Blandness

Mon-Fri: 10-6:30pm; Sat: 11-2pm

Presenting the artist’s brand-new works Flower, Pervasion and Cold Mountain, the exhibition demonstrates Liu Guofu’s new artistic developments by showing these works for the very first time.

Liu was born in Nanjing, China, in 1964. Melding motions of light with air where ‘light’ brings out its depth and ’air’ helps disperse the ‘light’ to every corner of the piece, the artwork’s symbolic blue-greyish colour is fundamental to Liu’s signature style.

Liu's oil paintings have been exhibited in many major cities. Highlights include a solo show in 2011 that toured the Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum (Nanjing), Today Art Museum (Beijing), and the Shanghai Art Museum; In the same year, he also participated in the Parallel Exhibition at the 54th Venice Biennale.
