Chunhong Chang

For several years, Chunhong has been working on a series called “In Congruence” which evolved into another series, “Unity.” The artworks in “In Congruence” combine the styles and painting approaches of classical European still lifes of the 16th and 17th centuries and the floral, bird, and land and seascapes of early Southeast Asian art. “Unity” takes a more modern approach, preserving the classical style on the center plane, but with a more flowing, abstract outer frame.

By juxtaposing eastern and western images that reflect the traditional methods of masters from centuries past, her work attempts to unify and enhance the visual representation of the natural world in a new way. She seeks to establish a harmonious coexistence between eastern and western art in my work, with different styles of images painted on different planes that work together as a unified work.
