Huntz Liu is a Taiwanese-American artist who works primarily with cut and layered paper. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

“My work deals with the layering and removal of material,” Huntz says. “It presents a visual language that unflattens two-dimensional forms and gives weight to line and edge.” Each composition is comprised of meticulously cut shapes on different planes, reveling in both the layering of material and the absence of material. By embracing negative space, Liu creates line and shadow, building an image that is so much more than each of its individual parts. The compositions strive for a perfect balance, embracing the chaos of the shapes and colors. As Liu describes it, “this is a reflection of the perfect sphere we live upon and the chaos of the layers confined within.”

The artist adds “Underlying every piece is the method and medium of hand cut paper. There is a calm in this process, with its forced tedium + slow/heavy time consumption, that allows me to live in and about the work. Every shape and color, every corner and edge, I was there for. There is no escaping it and, ultimately, there are no shortcuts.”
