“Charlene Liu’s new body of work brings an evolution in her methods of collage and printmaking, creating a world of pattern and form that draws from objects of memory. Photographing patterns and textiles recovered from her mother’s restaurant, Liu’s digital processing and hand-printed CMYK translations contain rich pigments and playful forms. Larger panels use hand-marbled paper that mirrors the multiplicity and variability displayed within Liu’s masterful printmaking. These works embody a joyful side of acculturation— presenting the adaptation and merging of intergenerational heritage with the multitude of potentials contained in materiality and form.”
