“I edit and add as the painting progresses, and in the end the work is a layering of its prior chapters. I wanted to show that process and reopen paintings that were already complete, to sort of tell their stories, and also to see their evolutions fixed on a page, like a developing photograph. The colored lines break the painted surface and reach out beyond the subject, releasing energy—again, like a photograph as it matures into clarity. As Leonard Cohen once said, ‘There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’”
Hung Liu, Zoetrope
