The "natural eloquence" of Liu Liping
By Jia Fangzhou
From the women artiste that emerged in the 90’s ,one of the most distinguishing features of their works was their separation away from the discourses their male Peers maintained towards that of the exploration of self-value. With their own individual perspectives and valued personal experiences, their sharp observation, their diverse sentiments, and using their innate instincts and adaptability to survive they went on to feel and express the reality of a more natural life, weather it be by expressing repressed feelings or a meaningful reality and in this way established an argument based on this self-search. the earliest attempts in this trend towards the exploration of the self started in a 1990 exhibition, 'The WORLD of Women Artists'. With fresh new perspectives, as opposed to those of male artists, and setting a distance from the works of an older generating of female artists, eight women artists fresh from art college used a distinctive vitality to expose the result of their exploration, Liu Liping amongst them. Her series of oil paintings 'Earth Friend' was part of this exhibition.

I saw Liu Liping’s paintings for the first time in this exhibition. Those paintings with "ground" as their main subject left a deep impression in me, not aroused by any sort of impact or visual provocation of the painting themselves. The paintings depicted earth surfaces with nothing that drew attention…muddy soil, an expanse of pure white snow, opened up wasteland or moist tiles with melting ice and snow…No sky nor depth of focus: no reminiscence of life being nurtured by the land, and no social beings to add the master touch. The artist only seeks to express the surface of the land, because in her view, that’s a rich world in itself. She portrays with genuine interest each and every insignificant detail, each in turn narrating the magnificence of life. A Small stone seems like a person, and a few waves comprise amusing detail. The tips of rocks and grass emerging from a snow capped land seem to narrate a harsh winter experience, and the pretty pattern of a tiles floor bids farewell to the snow that remains in the slits between the tiles…In our incredibly, materialistic society, who ever notices the small changes taking place in the land? who ever takes delight in pondering upon all the insignificant minor details? Only women, only women poets and artists notice the ordinary and trivial details of nature and perceive the unnoticeable changes in the natural world, as opposed to their male counterparts, who are mainly concerned on important social issues, big cultural missions…They are not used to the macro metaphysical thinking. Women artists approach art with a leasurely and tranquil state of mind, enjoying the repetiveness and order of things. They enjoy making issues out of little things which none of us would deem worthy if attention, multiplying and repeating little details. They remain close to nature, intimate with the land, showing us what trueborn "naturalists" they are.

This intimacy with nature already constitutes the basis of Liu Liuping’s art. In the works that followed this series, the main subjects are also nature: the series comprising of the paintings ’Winter Snow’, ’Autumn Lotus’, ’Winter Lotus’, ’Green Corn’ and a few woodcuts and sketches, again and again all express the uncommon intimacy she maintains with nature. In the attractive rhetoric and narration of her own experience of nature that her works portray, one can perceive all the passionate praise and elation she shows towards natural life; like in ’Autumn Lotus’ and ’Winter Lotus’, although what she expresses is the decay and the end of a life cycle, those close and numerous crisscrossing lotus flower pools can actually make the observer feel the gloriousness, richness and vigor of life, as well as the unlimited vitality contained, without the paintings giving out a dejected or hurt sentimental tone.

If we say that in the works 'Autumn Lotus', 'Winter Lotus' and others, the main form of the picture is the structure and organization of "threads", then in 'Green Corn' the distribution of "light spots" in fact constitute the main form of the painting.
