Biography



Kai-Chun Chang is a Taiwanese artist based in Paris. His works span different media such as painting, collage and photography. His creation focusses primarily on the representation of light and space, and their subtle pictural relationship. 


In his paintings, with repeated crossovers formed by slow and gentle gestures, the diluted paint accumulates and embodies the different spectra of light.


 Working on the notion of screen, primary and refined forms appear in his works as pictorial spaces, whether they are epidermal and deep or floating and luminous. These forms are places that invoke fragments of memory and pure sensations. They appear as quiet interior landscapes who invite for contemplation.

WP / 1873
From Studies in the History of the Renaissance

            Like the elements of which we are composed, the action of these forces extends beyond us; it rusts iron and ripens corn. Far out on every side of us those elements are broadcast, driven by many forces; and birth and gesture and death and the springing of violets from the grave are but a few out of ten thousand resultant combinations. That clear, perpetual outline of face and limb is but an image of ours, under which we group them - a design in a web, the actual threads of which pass out beyond it.
