Liu Xiaodong: Painting From LifeLiu Xiaodong: Painting From Life

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Text by Ai Weiwei, Pi Li.

This volume is the most comprehensive look at Beijing-based painter Liu Xiaodong, who was born in 1963, to date. Articles, interviews and essays are accompanied by high quality, fold-out reproductions of his most significant pieces in this beautifully-designed volume. As the title suggests, Liu paints from life--drawing from the rich history of the practice in Chinese art. Eschewing any sense of romanticism about his subjects, Liu approaches his fusion of landscape painting and portraiture pragmatically. "Eighteen Soldiers Between Mainland and Taiwan" (2004), for example, is a horizontal painting segmented into eight sections, each of which contains a full-body portrait of a soldier staring impassively at the viewer or into the distance; each stands against a different background: a horizon of sea and sky, tanks and bunkers, trees and barbed wire. Included are texts by artist Ai Weiwei and curator Pi Li.

Liu Xiaodong: The Richness of LifeLiu Xiaodong: The Richness of Life

The Personal Photographs of Contemporary Chinese Artist Lu Xiadong.

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Edited and with interviews by Britta Erickson, Ai Weiwei. Introduction by Charles Merewether.

In this collection of photographs, Liu Xiadong, one of China's most celebrated artists, reveals to us the inspiration behind many of his most iconic paintings. An album consisting of personal photographs taken between the years 1984 and 2006, these are the images that have stayed with Liu, inspiring and informing his art throughout the past two decades. Deeply personal and politically engaged, The Richness of Life reveals for the first time the great extent to which Liu's paintings borrow from the discipline of photography, making his art the final product of a complex project involving interviews, photos, sketches and analyses, with little to do with easel painting. Essays from leading scholars illuminate the actively rebuilt nature of Liu's work, while in-depth interviews provide Liu's own perspective on the process and passions involved in his painting.

Liu XiaodongLiu Xiaodong

Published by Map Book Publishers.
Edited by Jean Marc Decrop. Essays by Charles Merewether and Ou Ning.

In Liu Xiaodong's painting, Prostitute 2, a young woman stands on a bed in disarray. Her eyes averted from the viewer, she leans, with classic contraposition, on a wall as bare as she is. Xiaodong is known for such moments--even though his figures are Asian, the artist addresses the universal theme of humanity by creating portraits, social scenes and historic moments with a resolutely contemporary slant. Liu Xiaodong presents a broad overview of one of China's greatest painters, and retraces his illustrious career, which evolved concurrently with an increased interest in contemporary Chinese art and in the painterly tradition. Complementing numerous reproductions of Xiaodong's post-social realist works are critical essays by esteemed art writers and critics, including Jean Marc Decrop, Jeff Kelley, Charles Merewether and Wu Hung--all of whom offer contrasting and unique views of this multifaceted artist.
