LIU Kuo-Sung Prints Exhibition
Loftyart Gallery is proud to finally present the third series of Liu Kuo-sung Prints. Featuring lithography, woodblock, etching, and silkscreen printmaking, in a set of ten prints, this is the final series in Loftyart’s autographed handmade limited edition prints by Liu Kuo-sung. Since working with Liu on the first two series, the printmakers have further perfected their techniques and took on greater technical challenges in the third.
As the last and final series, Loftyart Gallery and the commissioned printmaking studio, Xuyuan International Print Centre, have worked together tirelessly, making the best finishing touches to this monumental project. In terms of the initial section of images, Loftyart Gallery selected from Liu Kuo-sung’s long and impressive oeuvre, most important and defining artworks, many of which belong in museum collections. The images are then recreated with the distinct painterly qualities of printmaking, while faithfully preserving the spirit of Liu’s original artwork.
The art of Liu Kuo-sung’s prints not only lies in the greatness of the original composition, but also in the distinct characters of printmaking incorporated by the printmakers, in their artful recreation the artworks. Visiting the Xuyuan Print Centre time and time again in the last three years, Liu Kuo-sung’s kind guidance, thoughtful demonstration, and warm communication with the printmakers, making corrections and additions on every test run, has given Loftyart Gallery the pleasure and honor to produce three outstanding series of autographed handmade limited edition prints, ultimately setting new standards in the field of contemporary printmaking, as well as promoting Liu Kuo-sung’s spirit and contributions in Modern Ink Painting.
