This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A student artist in the People's Republic of China during the Cultural Revolution, Hung Liu emigrated to San Francisco and pursued through her paintings the way that visions from the past affected her Asian-American identity.  Many of her works on based on documentary photographs, but she obscures her images with abstract expressionism. Butterflies and birds are common symbols in her work, with their flight symbolizing transcendence and liberation.

During her childhood in the 1950s, her family fled their home for food, and her father was captured and arrested by Communist troops, and forty-six years passed before she saw him again.

She was "re-educated" during the cultural Revolution and was sent to pick rice and wheat for four years, and then after obtaining a passport to attend art school in the United States, settled in this country.

Amy Abrams, "Arts and Entertainment for the East Valley," Scottsdale, AZ
