Liu Hsin-Ying – What There Looks Like

Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA) is pleased to announce Malaysia-based Taiwanese artist Liu Hsin- Ying (b.1991) first solo exhibition in Singapore. Titled What There Looks Like, the exhibition is slated to run from 18 June – 10 July 2021 at Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore, Blk 47 Malan Road #01-26 Gillman Barracks, Singapore 109444.

The exhibition showcases a series of paintings in which the artist captures ephemerality in nature, reality and the human body. Liu subjects herself into these themes without preconception, instead, contemplates and instantaneously transcribes emotions, thoughts and forms on canvas through masses of strokes and line drawings paired with cognitive use of colors. The viewer is invited to ponder over suggestive figures of trees, mountains, grass, sea, sky & wind – a visual vocabulary the artist employs to express primal passion, sensuality and sexuality as a human, a woman and a mother.

The canvas offers a window into the ongoing consonance of the artist and her subject matter. The lack of focal points and lines of perspective that address the shifting nature of these realms, overlapping identities of subjects and fleeting gaze come together to present this series of colour frenzy and line reverie.



Liu Hsin-Ying (b. 1991, Taiwan) was trained at the Art Students League in New York in 2013 and at the Department of Fine Art, Taipei National University of the Arts, Taipei, Taiwan, graduating in 2015. She works in a variety of medium and approaches such as painting, drawing, video and performance art, drawing inspiration from the personal and cerebral. She is currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She was the winner of the 2019 Kaohsiung Award – Finalist Award, 2015 Outstanding Art Prize (Taipei National University) and an artist in residence at the Open and Fun Art Village Residency, Shanghai, China. Solo exhibitions include: Somewhere Down The River (2018), Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; “Please Give Me a Shape in One Piece.” thought spoke (2016), Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and A Period of Time (2013), Soul Art Gallery, Taipei, Taiwan.
