Esther Liu


Painting Installation

“What we see is what we experience. What we experience is not what we want”. Using painting, Esther Liu sought to illustrate and visualise this statement in an interaction with space. Images, figurative and non-figurative, were painted directly onto the wall, with a site-specific painting making its appearance, and then disappearing again.


Thanks to the generous support of a Project Grant from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, we will be adding more information and archival materials for this exhibition.
