Hung Liu: A Ten-Year Survey 1988–1998
November 6–January 3, 1999
 back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

Organized by the College of Wooster Art Museum, this ten-year survey demonstrated this Chinese American artist's significant body of painting. Born in China and trained in the traditional Chinese manner of painting and drawing realistically from life, Hung Liu began to work strictly from photographs after she migrated to America. Using mostly 19th-century vintage Chinese photographs she examines Chinese prostitutes, Ming dynasty court figures, and other images from China's rich and varied history, often reflecting the 19th-century Western fascination with exotic, non-Western culture.
