"Sharing The Harvest" by Z. S. Liang


"Suspicious Sight" by Z. S. Liang





Suspicious Sight
by Z.S. Liang

The safety of any camp depended on the vigilance of its warrior class. A guard would be enlisted to ride out from camp and patrol the surrounding area watchful of any sign of enemies, checking for game movements and making sure that horse herds were not permitted to drift too far off. Riding a sure-footed horse was essential to the survival of any Plains warrior.

The arrival of the horse in 1540 and the unprecedented power it presented forever altered tribal life. Soon, raiding horses was the dominant method through which Indian men could attain social recognition, advancement and wealth. In the midst of his watch, something out of place has caught this man’s eye; flushed birds, a swirl of dust or perhaps even a fleeting figure at the wood line. Who or what has entered his tribe’s domain?

The "Suspicious Sight" by Z.S. Liang is an elegant yet powerful portrait of Plains Indian life. It captures the serene beauty of the bond between a man, an animal and the land while intimating the potential danger of the unknown that lay just beyond our view in this tranquil scene.

Liang furthered his art study in the United States in 1982.He earned his BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Arts in 1986 and his MFA in Painting at Boston University in 1989. 

Liang received his great inspiration in this country while studying and painting the Wampanoag Indian culture at the outdoor Museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This newfound interest fired his imagination, and he began to focus his painting primarily on Native American Indian cultures and their traditional ways of life. During the ensuring years of field research, he has made many connections and friends among Native tribes from the East coast to the Rocky Mountains. Liang’s obvious passion for the Indians as a people, coupled with his emphasis on historical accuracy, adds strength and truth to his portrayals.
