Hung Liu in ‘Prayers to Urns’ at Nancy Hoffman Gallery

As a new year approaches and many hope for better times ahead, west coast painter Hung Liu marks time in a personal and captivating way in two new paintings at Nancy Hoffman Gallery. Every twelve years, at the start of the Chinese zodiac and in the Year of the Rat in which she was born, the artist creates a self-portrait paired with an important symbolic animal or object. In 2020, the most recent year of the rat, the artist marks her 72nd year with an image of herself draped in and masked by the US flag, a contrast to the red scarf she wears in her 1972 portrait as she lived through China’s Cultural Revolution. To the right, she repeats a five-stroke Chinese character to recall the prisoner’s act of marking time in strokes on the wall. (On view through Jan 2nd in Chelsea. Masks and social distancing are required.) Hung Liu, Rat Year I: Counting Down, oil on linen, mixed media on wood, 64 x 100 inches, 2020.

A bit late to the party… but happy Chinese New Year for those celebrating!

It’ been a while since I last post something here, but I’m still alive and improving. I think I’ve figured out my drawing style, so this year I can confidently produce more artwork.

When I lived in Tokyo I took up the Japanese
tradition of sending a new year zodiac animal postcard.
2020 is the year of the Rat (In Japan rat and mouse are both called nezumi). Nezumi Kozo (Rat Kid) was the Japanese Robinhood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. They used ladders for some reason to catch thieves in Edo era Japan and even had a special 4 ladder formation. Thieves traditionally wore head scarves tied around their noses and stole boxes of gold ingots. The new Emperor took the throne in 2019 ending the Heisei era and causing the year numbering renaming for a new era. 2020 is the 2nd year of the Reiwa Era. The zodiac year character for Rat is coincidentally the same as child (a different character for rat is used all other times). Happy New Year!
