At the most basic level—and beyond attempting to link the “formal” language of abstraction with the folk art of jianzhi (paper-cut)—I also tinker with subtle, symbolic implications and metaphors that connect the past and the present, east and west, philosophy and religion. In doing so, my work traverses through the medium of drawings, installations, and sculptures. — Fred Liang
