Description

The Institute for Australian and Chinese Arts and Culture proudly presents this visually stunning and thought-provoking solo exhibition by Dapeng Liu. Dapeng Liu was born in Beijing in 1982. He received his BA (Honours) in Visual Communication from Northumbria University and MA in Art History from the University of Sydney. In 2014, he decided to suspend his PhD studies and became a full-time artist after he was shortlisted as one of the top six finalists for the Archibald Prize. He went on to become a finalist for the Sulman Prize in 2015, a finalist for the Mosman Art Prize in 2017 and a finalist for the Archibald Prize again in 2021. Dapeng’s artistic style is very unique and distinctive. His colours, compositions, shapes and forms, and his imagination and perception are both striking and nuanced. While his artworks are often surprising, they also speak to, and readily resonate with many viewers. His artistic probe into reinventing traditional Chinese landscape painting, infused with his own storytelling, is marked by his deep thinking, precision and his subtle sense of humour. This solo exhibition showcases Dapeng’s latest works in which perspective, composition and colour arrangements lie central and they create a metaphorical realm of natural and man-made worlds. As Dapeng says, “Without void in painting, form, shape and line cannot be sensed. Without void in mind, thoughts and ideas cannot grow.”
