Seventy Two presents a dynamic body of artwork by Lucy Liu. Comprising seventy-two paintings in ink and acrylic, the series is inspired by the seventy-two Names of God - esoteric sequences of Hebrew letters that some believe help in the journey to find enlightenment for mind, body, and spirit. Liu's art practice sits at the interface of Eastern and Western traditions of art and references a variety of styles. With a freshness, vitality, and energy of its own, Liu's Seventy Two series is a must for anyone with an interest in abstract art and spirituality. A text by Deepak Chopra offers an insightful introduction to Liu's paintings, while Michael Dopp takes the reader on a journey through the series as a whole. An essay by theology and art history scholar Ori Z. Soltes explains the history and meaning of the seventy-two Names of God. This Special Edition comprises a copy of the publication presented in a silkscreened cloth-covered slipcase.
