About Liang's Bronze Sculptures:
The influences of Chinese and Dutch Realism traditions have contributed to the distinct and precise language used by Liang in his works (both paintings and sculptures). The questions posed by his fascinating sculptures are timeless and unanswered, mixed with oriental meditations of Zen spirit.

Liang's bronze sculptures are captivating. The smooth figuration and portrayal of truncated arms allude to ancient Greek statues. The figure of the work titled Falling seems asleep and, as in dreams of falling, the body seems to be levitated - almost under a reverse gravitational pull.

In the work titled Baby (Man), the figure leans forward, again, as if existing in an altered gravitational setting. The baby figure is facing in the opposite direction to the man and doesn't appear to be being carried. Enigmatic in meaning, this could be seen as a realisation of the passage of life.
