“Tour Eiffel”

Paris is known to be one of the most romantic cities in the world. Some might say that architecture has a large part to do with that…

Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
