Wayne Liu


From my blog (The Art Reviewer) June 9, 2010
Wayne Liu calls the viewer back to the narrative through layered double exposure, sequential images, and strong portrait related photography. The photographs have a rich scratchy, blurred look that conceals and reveals the image. The Trace series has a feeling of decay and loss. I was engrossed in these strange almost abstract images. OK China series gives a feel of loss, but that feeling is caused through the scale and apparent reality of rapid growth. There is an alienation that seems to be occurring during this rapid growth period of China that Liu has skillfully captures. All the series are well though out and masterfully executed.
