Alfred Liu – Daydreamer April 30 2019
Small Wall Project
Outré Gallery Melbourne CBD
11–20 January 2019
Alfred Liu is a Melbourne-based artist, and is our first Small Wall Project artist for 2019. Growing up in China, Alfred found himself between two worlds when he moved to Australia at age seven. Unable to speak much English, he sought refuge in his imagination and the worlds he created. His work depicts his love for Australia, the nostalgia of China, and the escapism of science fiction and fantasy.
Daydreamer was inspired by Alfred's wandering mind as he contemplated what to create for his show. The pieces depict his adventuring thoughts to far away places, hypothetical scenarios and the magic of the everyday, all from the comfort of his home.
