Student Exhibitions—MFA Thesis Exhibition "Yushan Liu: Growth"
December 7–12, 2015
Mission Hill Gallery, SMFA
Yushan Liu's work is inspired by the experiences we share with all living beings and explores our interconnected often haunted relationship to memory, dreams, and the natural environment. Liu’s painting, drawing, and printmaking rely on her memory of a moment, which she then develops from the concrete objects in her memory into abstract images on a surface. At first unrecognizable, the shapes eventually become objects that viewers may see as familiar. She gathers and reconstructs shapes, colors, and light from both the natural and built environments, which, through her reconstruction, emphasize the very act of seeing. Opening reception: December 7, 6–8 pm.
