Date: 10 Jul - 15 Aug 2010

The exhibition features nearly 50 wors covering the different periods, including the "Tibet Series"; one of this series is collected by the Shanghai World Expo 2010 in the VIP room of China Paviliom. In 2009, Liu Kuo-Sung gets traveling exhibitins in Hubei, Ningxia, Sichuan of China, and got good reactions. Lots of art museums collect Liu's works  including British Museum, who collected Liu's early "Space Series this year.

In the process of Liu's creation, he is always committed to innovation and developed materials techniques in order to diverse different styles of performances, and prepare to creat a tryly new form of belonging to the Chinese people, a new style of truly Chinese Painting, "modern ink painting."

"Space Series" depicting a macrscopic point of view of the earth and the universe, open up a boundless field of vision. Liu's inspriation comes from nature continually moving the sun, moon and the Earth, "The Universe of My mind" is his spiritual reflection.

In 2000, Liu Kuo-Sung took advantage of an opportunity to lecture in Tibet and visited the beautiful snowy mountain. Howeverm because he suffered from altitude sickness, he left Tibet having lost his hearing in his left ear. Although he paid high price on this trip. The Unrivalled beauty of Tibet's wintry landscapes inspired him to creat the "Tibet's Series". He used broad brushstrockes and the ripped paper fibres technique to portray the magnificence of the Tibetan peaks; the image is strewn with broken traces of white, as if the sun is reflecting upon the white show to receal silver serpents winding across the moutain.

"Jiuzhaigou Series" presented Liu's colorful crystalline water, the image's textural layers and colors weave together to create a beautiful vision of light reflecting off the trembling ripples.
