In the new works,Liu Haizhou piled up the chickens like a hill.Chicken is no longer the symbol of delicacy and it is the image of human desire and flashy times of peace and prosperity.The new works are more colorful and bright.He even uses the negative effect in some works.The mixed colors of verdancy and pink make people queasy.Many years ago I wanted to organize an exhibition by naming it as Lan.In chinese culture it has two meanings,one is bright and the other is rotten.It is also the critical situation of certain things.Here I use it to describe the taste of upstart and showy life of today in China.Peoples' minds have become commercial and greedy.Consumtion is the happiest thing in Peoples' life.Under this kind of artificial festive atmosphere,poverty,psychological impatience,fast expanding of human desire and violence are being neglected. ————Li Xianting
