Liu often works with watecolors and ink.

The artist also works with the medium of photographer. The first example in the picture gallery is an example of Liu’s photography style.

Liu has shown her work at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Crystal Liu’s art reminds of painter Robert Kushner. Both artist’s capture the wonderful organic lines of flowers and also incorporate a variety of mediums to give their paintings a wonderful variety of texture and movement of light across the painting surface. When I first saw Kushner’s work in person I was amazed at how the picture changed slightly as moved, this made it seem very life like.

Kushner often covers his work with resin and also uses glitter, which doesn’t show up well on a digital image. But in person as the viewer slightly moves different light is bounced on a variety of colors of glitter and the effect is a shimmering light.
