We are pleased to announce The Ocean Is Really Blue, an exhibition by George Liu Zhen, as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura on December 24 (Sat) & 25 (Sun).
George Liu Zhen, a Chinese artist based in Singapore, makes paintings, which explore the conflict he sees between individuality and modern culture. Looking back at his younger days in an environment of discipline and repression, Liu’s current art research looks at the fears surrounding the lack of self-expression and the presence of self-consciousness in the context of modern sociology.
Here are some words from the artist himself.
To recapture the beauty that nature created with my works, I let the ocean waves take over the paint brush. The rhymes of waves then translate themselves into organic lines and layered onto the paper. Through the experimental painting process that seeks the cooperation between human and nature, I try to use visual art as an interpretation of human-nature relationship.
