Works on paper

For her works on paper Charlene Liu combines watercolor painting with collage, pen and ink, mechanical processes, and printmaking techniques to convey a state of suspended transition. The title of the exhibition, Fugue, refers to Liu’s constant repetition of certain forms, motifs, and patterns. Particular visual ideas from past works are woven together, altered and re-sampled, until awareness and a sense of place are lost, provoking a feeling of disorientation. The works hold the viewer in transitory moments; they often refer to abstracted natural landscapes, and the transitional state between growth and decay.

Currently an Assistant Professor in the Art Department of the University of Oregon, Charlene Liu received her BA from Brandeis University in 1997, and her MFA from Columbia University in 2003. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at Shaheen Modern and Contemporary Art in Cleveland (OH), Taylor De Cordoba in Los Angeles (CA), and Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York (NY). Formerly based in New York, Liu currently lives in Eugene, OR. This is her first exhibition at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
