Liu Chuanhong is more like a troubadour who is separated from contemporary life. Since 2002, he pertinaciously kept away from urban life, choosing to farm, paint and write in Taohuadong Village in the Taihang Mountains area of Linxian County, Henan Province. During his hermit years, the landscape and life in the mountain became his subject matter.
Liu Chuanhong is an artist full of imagination. He is good at fabricating Liu Chuanhong’s own stories from his own experience, emotional memory and the complicated history. The ‘Lin Chong Enters Northern Henan’ of Liu Chuanhong's edition is a group of works in theater style. The theater is the peach flower valley, in a radius of dozens of square kilometers. While ‘ Journey to the West’ is a story about Xuanzang, a monk in the Tang Dynasty, looking for hermits all over the world.
