Huihan and Weizhen are bringing us
their smaller works in oils this year.
The subject matters will be for Huihan, his on going documentation of the daily lives of the Tibetan people and for Weizhen, she is interpreting visually the poetry she hears from nature, more specifically roses, in a manner that focuses on Chinese athletics and sensabilites.

The Salon will be held at the historical Nicolai Fechin’s studio in the Taos Art Museum. Begining with a catered light fare. A docent tour will be provided exclusively for the workshop students, beginning at 3:45pm.

Huihan Liu Statement:
“The Beauty of Tibet Through My Eyes”
When I first visited Tibet in 1987, travel was difficult and slow via unpaved dirt road. I was fast captivated by its splendid landscape and the hospitable people who live on the roof of the world! The mark that first encounter left would lead me to take eighth more trips to different regions during the following thirty-one years.
Overtime, I have seen many different parts of Tibet; from the northern Qinghai-Tibet plateau to the western Himalayan range. From nomad’s tent in pasture to the Potala Palace and Jokhang Monastery in Lhasa, and from Tibet’s northern gateway of Mt.Tanggula to the southern gate of Rongpu at the foothills of Mt.Everest.
My passion for Tibet has made me strive to paint Tibetan subjects for many years. I am fascinated by the chance to paint whatever I can see. I feel like I don’t have time to lose, as the modern world’s impact on traditional Tibetan culture grows year by year.
Hope you would enjoy the small work “The Beauty of Tibet Through My Eyes”!
Weizhen Liang Statement:
“The Spirit of Roses”
One thing I always try to keep in mind is how to best capture the spirit of the roses. Although I have been painting them for twenty years, I have recently been experimenting to come at them from fresh perspective. In each painting, I focus on its own mood and texture to create a unique atmosphere. I spent a lot of time on brushstrokes, scraping it off and retrying many times in order to get the effect just right to try for a spontaneous look.
