About the Artwork:

“Memories we have seem clear at times and in others, not so much. We remember them as their own entity, but as soon as they come they go and become only a momentary dream. Among those many ghosts that swirl and loop in and out, cloud head is made nothing more than swiss cheese. The character of Mr. Cloud Head represents the confusion which makes up the human psyche. The airy grey matter covers and creates a mass of protection for an otherwise fragile mound of flesh. To speak to a ghost is to speak with a memory. To let a ghost possess you is to let yourself experience what would be otherwise lost.” – Tiffany Liu

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Telling stories and creating worlds where anything and everything can happen is Liu’s forte. She loves playing with ambiguities and contradictions. Tackling ideas that strike fear in most, rendering them affable and accessible. Liu creates art that allows viewers to feel as though they have stepped into her dream world. Liu’s visions of childhood reflect a reality in which things often go awry, but in the most playful and colorful way. She fills her paintings with visual puns, and even double-puns. A wash in rainbow hues and populated with a veritable circus of cute (and freaky) creatures, her candy-colored paintings are at once strangely familiar (they reference the visual style of vintage storybooks, board game graphics, and nursery décor), and oddly jarring in their often audacious and mysterious subject matter.
