Chung Fan Chang
The work is about communicating what beauty is in our daily life, and is about exploring what is beauty to me in the process, concept, and visual appearance. I attempt to approach different subjects, such as landscape, form, and pen mark. I am discovering and representing beauty in my mind that reflects the outside world of what I see. My classical training background offers me a path to combine both traditional standards of beauty and my own understanding of beauty through both Eastern and Western perspective.
I am interested in how fluorescent color affects us in a daily base and the rich history of Chinese Painting and the philosophy. The artificial (unnatural) colors I investigate represent the vision of reality, beauty, and the color scheme of my generation. Through the meditational process of mark making, I am examining neon color, space and landscape. The visual statement envisions the entity of being. I believe the continuing pursuit of physical being of nature merging or conflicting with fluorescent color will define who I am as a visual communicator.
