Liang Quan studied in San Francisco in the 80's, where he spent three fulfilling years getting acquainted with abstract art, graffiti, and some of the most significant museums in the world. Liang was single-minded in his quest: finding the tie between these experiences and traditional Chinese paintings, while infusing western artistic elements into Chinese literati awareness and traditional philosophy.
With Xuan paper (rice paper) and colored ink as mediums, Liang let his sharp, contradictive colouring run free in Untitled. The layering and overlapping of hues, though ostensibly flashy, is underpinned by Liang's compositional judiciousness, and it embodies Liang's lifelong devotion to actualising the sophistication of Chinese ink art. The pliability of Xuan paper also enables Liang to reinterpret the artistic language he picked up in the West with his unique take on collage production.
