The theme for the exhibition is Red Fruit, ‘Red’ being the first color of life which soothes the eternal flame of the soul and ‘Fruit’ is the accumulated growth through time and space.

When I first saw the title the meaning wasn’t so obvious until my Chinese teacher told me that this theme gives a very warm and hopeful feeling for the future .

 

Writer Luise Guest wrote about these works for ‘The Painted Thread’ a couple of years ago .

Lishuiqiao Ditie 1 and 2…… observing the unexpected beauty in the everyday. Racing between connecting lines she arrived at a quiet platform where a few people drifted gently, reflected in shiny, blank advertising hoardings on the opposite side. She was so struck by this image that she returned next day with a camera intending to film, but her plans were thwarted by fast-moving trains and hyper-vigilant station security. The paintings, in fiery tones of red and orange, are largely based on a vivid memory, an image that struck her artist’s eye with great force and seemed burned into the retina.
