Resonant Visions

 

"Indeed, Liu's psyche is exposed with candor and trust in these new works. Through her subtle use of collage, her rich vocabulary, and her inherent sense of rhythm, line, and composition, a spontaneous freedom is imparted that is poetic, mystical, and cerebral in its effect. In her continuous quest to maintain a visual equilibrium between intent and intuition, Katherine Chang Liu achieves a spiritual harmony with these evocative paintings that reveals her great insight and integrity."
