Together, sea stacks, the sky and the plants of the west coast contribute to a unique feeling that cannot be captured in a simple photograph. I feel art should capture the reality that a photograph seldom properly conveys. – Rob Elphinstone

Hustle & Flow by William Liao at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada

Hustle & Flow
Acrylic on canvas 36 x 48
$5725

 

Seeing a city from a certain distance, shrinking it to a size that you can see at a glance, will appear gentle and solemn, especially at night. When people’s stories become blurred, the character of the city gradually emerges. Isn’t the flashing and changing of those lights the pulse and breath of the city? – William Liao

Robson Street by William Liao at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada

Robson Street
Acrylic on canvas 36 x 36
$4300

 

The noise of the city suddenly fell silent. The pandemic makes the street look completely different. Some people say that seeing the streets without people is depressing, but I see it differently. Without the noise of people and traffic, this fascinating city has its own solemn beauty. – William Liao

Neon Dream City by William Liao at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada

Neon Dream City
Acrylic on canvas 40 x 30
$3980

 

I never thought I would live in this city for so long, it is now thirteen years. I used to think that my immigration here would be the biggest change in my life. Later I found that even though my life has changed, I somehow remained the same. I now only understand myself better, and at the same time, I have become obsessed with every street and every light in this city.

– William Liao

FEATURE TESTIMONIAL

 

As someone who loves fine crafts, I was pleasantly surprised to see the impressive range of ceramics at The Avenue Gallery. The distinctive styles and obvious quality are very appealing as is the price point. The glass blown objects are a further treat to the eye. There are of course, paintings to boot. Living nearby allows me to visit this very special place on a regular basis.

– Karen W., TripAdvisor Review
