About this Artist

The artist discusses the inspiration of here work on her website: katherinechangliu.com

"In recent years my work often has come from my reading.

Words lead to ideas.
Sometimes a word or two will trigger the imagination enough to create a series.
I keep a note book for such words.

When I started out years ago, I relied on visual information to feed my work.
Now I begin with the idea, and generate sketches for my work.

My painting process is a process of addition and subtraction,
during which I try to edit the image down to only what is needed."
