In a country known for it’s figurative painters Liang Quan is a rarity. An artist passionate about abstract painting and inspired by Zen Buddhism and meditation. Though trained in traditional landscape painting, years of experimentation and exploration lead Liang to produce a pure and neutral style of abstraction mainly using a light palette of whites, off whites, brown stains from tea and pastels. Liang’s technique is precise and labour intensive. He makes collages using eastern materials like rice paper, carefully collaged onto linen layer by layer, soaked in tea and painted with ink or dye.
