As a student, Lei Liang attended class mere blocks from the Tiananmen Square protests; ever since, he has viewed art as a way to counteract violence and find freedom. His compositions pay homage to his Chinese culture while drawing on Western counterpoints. This Portrait, performed by several of Liang’s West Coast colleagues, explores opposing forces, bringing together light and dark, paradise and inferno.
