Its radiant beam.

Light stretches.
Fantasy forms.

Of Dreams and Gardens

LIULI – Limitless imagination in a limited space

What we hope for is a breakthrough – one that takes the concept of “light” to a new level.

Twilight; dwindling light.  The soft sounds of running water entices you to open that door.  A garden of imagination reveals itself.

Hydrangeas carpet a lush garden bed, their radiance like starlight.  They bloom endlessly, their intoxicating fragrances inviting the frou-frou of skirts.

Light fulfills vitality.  The gardens’ stones emerge from the land’s spirit, one by one complimenting the personalities of each flower blossom while protecting your dreams.  The ancient and revered lotus flower, itself a mystery, echoes the brilliance of life and creation.

A harlequin bar, lantern-chairs, and wine glasses come together to imitate that fleeting moment of caprice in between just-awoken and deep dreaming.

Peony transforms into a screen.  The screen calls to the vivaciousness of Spring.  The spring day beckons you to stay…..

Here, all these elements, within the illusion of a space limited, lend themselves to limitless imagination.  In that blasé spring evening, is it you who comes into the light?  Or is it the light that gives you a dream?

Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi with Pacific Symphony 0

Elegant festivities usher in the year and benefits local art & education
Special guests of honor Loretta H. Yang & Chang Yi

Last Saturday, LIULI sculptures illuminated Segerstrom Concert Hall—South Coast Plaza—as art, dance, and music came together in a stunning act of welcoming in the New Year.

For the second year in a row, we have had the immense pleasure of celebrating the Lunar New Year with Pacific Symphony Orchestra.  This year’s celebration was even more exceptional, since LIULI founders Loretta H. Yang and Chang Yi attended as the event’s special guests of honor.

Being a crucial fundraiser in keeping the community’s arts thriving, the evening-long celebration was interspersed by the occasional words of inspiration from our two artists and board member Charles Zhang.

We are thrilled to welcome in the New Year with such resounding sentiments of encouragement to the community.  Art and education keeps people alive and thriving.  We hope that the Year of the Rooster does the same for you.

Unstoppable Faith: New Era of the Dragon Horse and It's Special Exhibition 0

LIULI Gallery South Coast Plaza introduces winter collection: “Unstoppable Faith: New Era of the Dragon Horse” and its special exhibition.

Related Link:

October 28, 2016 marks the launch of LIULI’s winter collection "Unstoppable Faith: New Era of the Dragon Horse" at South Coast Plaza. It kicks off a 10-day exhibition at Carousel Court Level 2 till November 6. Patrons will see selections of LIULI’s most prominent horse and dragon designs from previous years to the latest collection as well as two special-edition center pieces: a striking statue of the renowned Chinese hero Lord Guan Yu astride his legendary horse, which is the only piece that comes in a unique color and gold-gilded; also, an imposing dragon poised on a cloud, which is the largest dragon design by LIULI and the last of twelve limited pieces.

The concept of "dragon horse spirit" will be showcased on how the dragon and the horse are tightly intertwined in the Chinese tradition. Inhabiting the heavens, the dragon is synonymous to the Chinese Emperor and culmination of all things that breathe. Closer to our own realm, the horse is a king among the beasts of the earth. The dragon and the horse are swift and unerringly graceful, symbols of exalted power and royal authority. They are the symbolisms to maneuver through uncertain times and maintain unstoppable faith in the Chinese culture. LIULI’s design lives up to this faith: challenge yourself; create designs good for the human heart and soul.

The dragon has evolved throughout the years.  For the Chinese people, this mythical creature has penetrated the furthest depths of our imagination and come to symbolize authority, determination and passion.  The LIULI dragon is at all times the manifestation of strength through the contemporary medium of liuli.


Odyssey Across Heaven and Earth
A universe of blue; heaven, earth, mountain and stream.
An uninhibited odyssey, a flight of freedom.
It comes from ancient times, it comes from the Han and Tang;
it is ultimately, the glory of our past and future.

What is the horse of the Chinese psyche?  Is it the blood-sweating heavenly horse of legend or is the dignified ink and wash horse of painter Xu Beihong?  For LIULI, the stance of a horse in gallop recalls the steeds found on ancient murals and stone engravings. In this collection, the technique of new liuli composites and color showcase a breakthrough in the craftsmanship. Retaining the transparency of the inner space, a precise composition of 7 to 8 hues of red is used to create this “blood-sweating heavenly horse” which Emperor Wu of Han had dreamt of.

From October 28 to November 6, privileges will apply to selected artworks. Collectors will receive a complimentary rabbit-design stamp “Reunion Under a Full Moon”, for every purchase of $560, limited to 3 pieces in a single transaction. In addition, we have special family day events on Saturdays during the exhibition period.
