Oil on canvas

Born in 1959, Sunrise Liu is an artist living in New Jersey and Beijing. She studied Chinese Calligraphy at Beijing Calligraphy School in 1980, and was awarded for excellence. She received her B.A. in Art Study from Beijing Institute of Education. She lived and explored the western art in France, Germany, Belgium, Netherland, Switzerland, Italy and Austria from 1998 to 2002. Sunrise is a pioneer of splash-oil painting in China. Her works were exhibited in public and private art collection in China and United States. She receives multiple awards in China. Her unique painting style derives from 20th century Chinese ink painting and Impressionism. Her interest in Taoism and Buddhism add a historical edge to the work. Sunrise’s works show strong feminine tone with vibrant color. Her major painting series are Abstract Oil Series and Flower Series. Her intuitive feminine tone links her works to a visionary and mystical impulse.

Sunrise writes of her work, "My painting is the window to show my heart, the path to reach my soul, the key to my secret garden. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project, my artworks always show strong feminine point of view with vibrant colors. I tend to use my paints to express myself, present the beauty of the world to others. In my works, you might percieve the images of milkways, galaxies, black holes in the universe, flowers, frost, four seasons, and imaginary pictures from my inner world. Although my oil painting may be described as Abstract Expressionism, a more suitable term would be Vibrant Expressionism. I like to combine Eastern and Western painting technique, experience different materials. My Abstract Oil Series are splash-color painting. My recent works are Flower Series, which are Acrylic paint mixed with ink. No matter what and how I paint, I want my works to make people feel good."
