INTRODUCING – WILLIAM LIAO
Oil on canvas 20 x 16
Artistic inspiration began at an early age for William. Growing up in Beijing, China after the Cultural Revolution, he was surrounded by classical Chinese culture as well as new European art. These are the influences which continue to define and inspire his work today.

William’s paintings combine traditional mediums with modern techniques, providing his audience with another dimension of experience.

Saltspring Island Big Leaf Maple Burl with Granite Base, 23 x 18 x 9
All my source material is burl from downed Big Leaf Maples that would otherwise rot or become firewood. There’s lots of science and writing now on the “secret” life of trees. This has encouraged my theory that each tree stores memories in its burls. If fortunate, I find an expression of that memory in my carving. Maybe, over the life of this particular maple, it was home to a nest. – Bruce Edmundson
