My work deals with physical and pictoral occurrences in nature. Through curious observation I find infinite instances in which natural order and disorder create framework. For example, fractured light through broken glass or a web of tree branches intertwining through a matrix of space. Wound Together, the pictures I make float in and out of illusory space while simultaneously denoting flatness of their plane materiality. Surprisingly an arhythmical rhythm emerges in all this. What excites me is the beauty and its unpredictability. Through Collage I take something as a whole, then break it down and reassemble it through my own filter. Layers are built up but are done so in order to subtract from the overall image and create voids in the landscape of the imagery. The uniqueness to my process adapts a traditional ‘cut and paste’ approach but also carries seamlessness equally redolent of digitized media.
The show is a reflection of Liu Bolin's multifaceted and complex view of contemporary society and culture. The critically acclaimed and internationally renowned artist will release the first works of a new series, Hiding in California.
