2002 Solo Show of '' Flying '' series, Unique Art Gallery, Taichung, Taiwan
In 2002, Liang soon presented the FlyingSeries at Galerie Pierre in Taichung. It was the first time he showed works of thin structure and laid down the foundation for the husk and pod structure in the Integral and Taiwan Matrix Series that were to come later. The FlyingSeries originated from Gravity Release, and through the approach adopted in this series, Liang was able to release the heaviness in wood to create a sense of lightness, thinness and floating beauty. As a matter of fact, Liang observedand detected the tremendous pressure of modern people in New York, Kaohsiung, and Taipei. The phenomenon was universal in modern society, and required a sort of psychological release. The power of Gravity Release lay in the fact that each carving and removal of wood that rendered the wood thinner andlighter would create a sense of gratification. It was a unique experience, and Liang believed that viewers would have the same feeling when seeing his works.
