Artist from Taipei, Taiwan
The clash of the traditional approach with progressive modernity is an important issue of recent times. Hua Chang uses a traditional ink technique to present contemporary topics: idyllic representations of nature without apparent human presence. Those floating islands of harmony and happiness express the human desire for organic life, but at the same time are closer to the aesthetics of computer games then the real world. The choice of technique does not seem to be accidental. Reaching back to our roots and finding solutions in our ancestors' knowledge and our heritage, seems to be an interesting strategy. In fact, rejecting the past as obsolete and useless can also be one of the causes of the ongoing crisis. The gap that opens between man and the nature must be crossed if we want to think about more sustainable development.
