Shudi Liu’s oil and acrylic paintings are both cerebral and playful in nature. The artist disassembles both the body and familiar objects, creating scenes that appear ripped from dreams. And in a single work, this discombobulation seems to come with elation and solitude.
“My imagination is the tool I use to present ‘the real me.’ I am an introvert in life, but my imagination flies high and gives me a way to present myself,” she told Beijing Today, which added that “she defines herself as ‘odd,’ but hopes that viewers who see her work will shift their opinion closer to ‘interesting.’”
