Don’t miss this show by Jesse entitled Spring Fever at the Yiwei Gallery.

On Saturday, March 4th from 12-5 pm, the Yiwei Gallery (1350 Abbot Kinney, Venice CA 90291) will be exhibiting Jesse Liu’s very first solo art exhibition entitled Spring Fever. This Beijing-born artist of 1999 has crafted a collection of works that is sure to dazzle and mesmerize all audiences!

After graduating from the illustrious School of Visual Arts New York, Liu’s captivating paintings are a mixture of her own personal memories and emotions with an imaginary backdrop. Her motivation for each painting is her curiosity about memory; it records our feelings at certain points in time rather than exact events. By combining these two aspects into one image, she creates beautiful, emotive works that mesmerize viewers worldwide. Capturing reflections of the past, she paints a vibrant portrait that links these memories to reality. Through her works we can observe people lost in this alternate universe- some lingering in longing, others playing without restraint, and many either hiding from or searching for an unknown truth – all amidst feelings of discomfort or absolute joy.

Her artwork portrays Asian women in a range of settings and poses, giving insight into their complex personalities while accentuating the ties between them. Through her use of oil on canvas, she is able to store emotion with each brush stroke – an art form that speaks volumes. Her inaugural exhibition Spring Fever incorporates many components from her life story intertwined with creative imaginings as it reflects these powerful women whom she has encountered over time.

As a Beijing native, Liu ventured to South Carolina for high school and later graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2022 with an illustration major. Initially captivated by how stories could be depicted through artwork, she discovered that college assignments were overly limiting. During her senior year is when it all changed—when painting purely for enjoyment reignited her creativity and allowed her to express herself freely without any constraints. From then on, she was seized by the passion for creating art as a means of uncovering tales within one’s inner world. Painting provided an outlet for her to connect with the world, enabling her to express herself in a manner that words could not.
