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.
