Rolls-Royce adds fine art to new Phantom with The Gallery Artist Commissions

Rolls-Royce adds fine art to new Phantom with The Gallery Artist Commissions

Autumn Palette by Liang Yuanwei

Acclaimed Chinese artist Liang Yuanwei based her commission on the autumnal colours she encountered when visiting the West Sussex home of Rolls-Royce. Using thick layers of paint to an almost sculptural effect, Yuanwei's work is suggestive of abstract texture which reveals more and more detail the closer you get.

“My artwork for The Gallery is reflective of the impression that I get from the marque, having seen the human and natural environment of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ headquarters," said Yuanwei. "I wanted to capture the atmosphere and reproduce it. That feeling is sophisticated, a sophistication that envelops you. Like painting, the many aesthetic details of a car represent the brand's values and heritage. Over time, a brand’s culture is passed on to the present. Some things persist, some things elapse, some things are abandoned, and some things evolve. This is the way of inheritance with a sense of responsibility, like the detailed strokes of a painting. This is also the approach to my work.”
