Dik Liu

Monday, September 30, 2013

Dik Liu’s recent paintings depict trolls, gnomes, and goblins that appear joyous and eternally optimistic. These creatures stand in solitude, but they are far from lonely; their hearts are chaperoned by strange secrets. These creatures are bathed in a sweet, ambrosial light and seem inexplicably content in their misty, atmospheric setting.
