Liang Zi paints hyper-realistic tree stumps with bare, sawn-off branches set against a backdrop of pure white. The tree stumps are gnarled and barren, conjuring up images of a stark and bitingly cold winter. Yet, they also seem to have a warm, inner life of their own and appear strangely thorough even without their branches. This represents the gradual isolation and insulation of modern man from family and society in a world of rapid, impersonal communication, symbolized by the loss of tree branches that create a canopy of interconnected relationships. Liang Zi's brushstrokes are incredibly measured and detailed, allowing him to recreate the rough, spongy texture of the bark. The whorled patterns on the stumps make them seem like blocks of coral submerged in an ocean of white silence, making the saying "No man is an island" ring ever more true.
