Gallery EXIT presents a group exhibition ‘New Gaze’, featuring the works of Celia KO, LAU Siu Chung, Ticko LIU, and Glary WU, running from 4 February to 11 March 2023. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, 4 February, 2 – 5 pm.
For Ticko LIU, his surrealistic paintings are collages of his myriad ideas, inspirations, images, and observations. A man of many interests, the artist recalls a childhood immersed in wild and boundless imaginations, expressed through the act of painting amidst a repressive environment. Liu has a keen eye for observation, and his creations are inspired by various daily scenes, flora, and fauna in the natural world, the cinema, moving images, his collection of toy models, etc. All these are reimagined by the artist and rendered in bright colors and undulating lines on the canvas, presenting a fantasy space of every day that is nonetheless believable and relatable. Based on the model tanks and sports cars on the artist’s desk, the two sets of four paintings in the exhibition juxtapose a realist still-life with an imagined counterpart, mirroring the external and internal landscapes of the artist. By recording the small things around him, the artist tries to lead the viewer into his imaginary world.
