Below an interview with Chuang Che with subtitles in French:
Works by Chuang Che can be found in the permanent collections of the Detroit Art Museum and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Chuang Che’s work although abstract seems to have the feel of a weather event or even a landscape. Chuang Che has an excellent sense of design and always leaves a portion of his surface rather empty thus giving it feeling of motion and movement.
His work reminds me of the painter Etel Adnan, who also works with a similar abstracted landscape theme.
