LIU has hosted numerous exhibitions in Hong Kong and overseas. She was awarded “Contemporary Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition 1985 (Printmaking Award), “Lu Xun Printmaking Award –1999, the excellent achievement in printmaking”, “Fellowship of the Artistic Development – 2000”, The Hong Kong Art Development Council, “The 7th Exhibition of Printmaking (Intaglio, Silkscreen, Lithograph) Bronze Award”- 2001, “ Excellent Work, The Twelfth National Exhibition of Fine Arts, China 2014”.
Liu’s works combine the Western and Chinese ink painting skills and achieved a harmonious balance of Yin and Yang. Content and spatial structure are freed from Western and Eastern traditional style to create an open space. She likes to use metaphor and symbols to express her inner emotion, conflict and experience. Her recent attempts include the application of computer technological processing techniques to demonstrate the mutual relationship between lithography and other artistic forms. This is a challenging experience to her.
