|Peter Liew’s swashbuckling strokes in this still-life give the impression of wild growth and movement to this otherwise static bouquet of flowers. A bold abstract attempt in a scented origami of yellow, pink, red and white, and with broken shoots of long-leaf plants light a dynamic essence within the painting.
Graduated from Malaysian Institute of Art in 1979, Peter Liew held his solo exhibitions at Artist House Gallery (1987), Maybank Art Gallery (1997) and Museum of the City of Skopje (2002). He also participated in numerous group exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Macedonia.
