Master Blaster painter Kristen Liu-Wong
Kristen Liu-Wong depicts gorgeous, ultra-violent femmes via her wickedly lit-up and lovey compositions.
Entitled ‘Conflict/Resolution’, the latest exhibition from LA-based artist Kristen Liu-Wong is a densely packed pictorial cluster of bikini-clad battlers slaying serpents, sinking ships, deploying dynamite sticks, and cruising around tempestuous seas on cigarette boats and sea-doos with machine guns and bloody fantasy blades.
Her alternate universe of fierce femmes, Miami Vice colorways and futuristic aesthetics brings us into the realms of visual pleasure, cryptic sexual politics, and decorative magic. We love her lit-up territories of the surreal, vivid technicolor, dark Freudian impulses and metamorphosing roiling surfaces. The characters in her paintings are empowered, proactive participants in a narrative that blends crazy cartoons with the epic-scale of mythology, religious symbolism and sexed up speed demons. Kristen collides stories of valor, love, loss, and bloodlust through her kooky-cool constellations and freaky-pretty ecospheres of ultra-violence. We love!
