Through painting, writing and film, Hometown Boy offers an unusually panoramic view of Liu's Jincheng memories, past and present.

When Liu left his hometown as an aspiring 17-year-old art student, Jincheng was a bustling little town where life revolved around the local paper mill. Three decades later, the physical, social and economic landscape has changed drastically: Jincheng's narrow streets and houses remain, but the local economy has crumbled, unemployment is rampant, and years of environmental degradation have taken their toll.

For the artist, it is a homecoming in which observations and depictions of the present are tinged with recollections of a vanished past.
