Liu Kuo-sung brought Chinese art into bold new world

August 6, 2014 - SF Chronicle & SF Gate

What would it take to accelerate innovation in China, just as a once raging tiger economy paces sluggishly? Perhaps the country's educators can learn from the work of artist Liu Kuo-sung, once labeled a political subversive for his pursuit of western modernism and now oft described as the "father of modern Chinese painting." Both traditional Chinese ink painting and the epic landscapes of the Song dynasty as well as abstract expressionism and hard-edged abstraction inform his work, though Liu himself stresses experimentation above all.

NanHai Art Presents: Rebel as Creator - The Art of Liu Kuo-sung and His Students

May 20, 2014 - Exhibition Statement

As the artist delicately pulls the fibers out of his paper, one by one, the crisp snows of the Himalayas arise vividly from a haze of black and gray ink. From this exposure of what lies underneath the painted surface ground, this removal of ink, emerge with miraculous clarity monumental mountain forms. Liu Kuo-sung’s work both evokes and denies the accomplishments of early masters of landscape painting, who created grand landscapes by painstakingly building up their texture strokes in ink.
