There’s a lot of pressure choosing the year’s first posts on a blog; you want to start the year off on the right foot! Well, we don’t think we can go wrong choosing 2Modern’s first 2011 Featured Artist by going with abstract painter Cathy Liu.
Bold, organic, bright, modern, energetic—we just love these paintings and all the bright, happy feelings they convey. You just can’t stay mad while looking at one of her creations. Though there isn’t a lot of depth to her paintings, her amoeba-like shapes and the cool, graphic patterns of her art are all the foreground and background you need.
And while this is completely irrelevant to her paintings, we thought mentioning that her husband happens to be architect Craig Steely would be a great opportunity to link to his awesome interview we did of him.
