Introduction

This inspirational publication presents a dynamic body of artwork by Lucy Liu. Comprising seventy-two paintings in ink and acrylic, the series is inspired by the 72 Names of God. Liu’s primarily monochrome paintings sit at the interface of Eastern and Western traditions of art – abstract images that reference a variety of genres, from prehistoric cave painting to Abstract Expressionism and Chinese calligraphy. With a freshness, vitality, and energy of its own, Liu’s Seventy Two series is a must for anyone with an interest in abstract art and spirituality.
